"Bi-polar" self-talk...

Once upon a time, two halves of a brain decided to engage in a discussion about the country's debt problems. The left brain was rational and logical and the right brain was emotional and preferred elusive, uncertain information. The discussion went something like this:

Left Brain:  "I propose that we reduce the benefits paid on healthcare and pensions to solve our debt problem."

Right Brain: "Would that work?"

Left Brain: "Sure, it's worked for awhile in the past and now we stand to have an even greater savings because of the ever-increasing growth in the proportionally-large aging population."

Right Brain: "Why not just tax the wealthy?"

Left Brain: "Because that's never been done before, so there's no proof that it would work."

Right Brain: "But that's not very humane...what about all the suffering and hardships that would occur on an increasing basis?"

Left Brain: "That depends on whether or not you look at it from a rich person's viewpoint."
