In response to tvoter's comment:
In psychology and cognitive science, confirmation bias (or confirmatory bias) is a tendency to search for or interpret information in a way that confirms one's preconceptions, leading to statistical errors.
Confirmation bias is a type of cognitive bias and represents an error of inductive inference toward confirmation of the hypothesis under study.
Confirmation bias is a phenomenon wherein decision makers have been shown to actively seek out and assign more weight to evidence that confirms their hypothesis, and ignore or underweigh evidence that could disconfirm their hypothesis.
As such, it can be thought of as a form of selection bias in collecting evidence.
Well now, let's try this again since my post from yesterday was removed, although I'm not sure why, darn that mysterious censor.
I always like it when you post stuff you didn't write, and don't understand, it always reassures my opinion of you and your ilk.
Where do you think the term "welfare generation" comes from, folks get used to getting free stuff, then pass this trait onto their children, and so on and so on.....
Of course folks are going to support the people that give them stuff, and if it makes them pigs in a pen, eating free corn, thay are OK with that. It's quite obvious, look at the recent election results.
Let's see if this lasts through the day, deleting posts for no reason is childish, although I understand it when people fear others.
