The Un-VARNISHED Truth, A Short Poem Dealing With Cognitive Dissonance

O Bee! Thou Art Shellacked!!!


Unvarnished Truth
or,  Between the Idea and the Reality Falls Shellack

by Squeeky Fromm

So Obama backs
A hike in the tax
When his party is
In the minority.

So please tell me how
He’ll raise them up now
When he couldn’t
When he had a majority???

(Note: Cognitive Dissonance is explained in Wiki as: an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding conflicting ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions. Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying. )
