I will readily admit that there were Conservatives and Republicans probably among those in the crowd pushing, shoving, and eager to get their hands on goodies.
I will say that your above statement goes a long way to explaining the liberal American mindset.
They had a "win at all costs" attitude during the election (vandalizing the cars of Bush supporters, slashing GOP staffers cars on election day, irrational shouting...).
They expect the war to be over in a day and New Orleans to be restored overnight.
Sitcoms solve problems in 30 minutes (including 8 minutes of commercial breaks) and the "serious shows" get things resolved in under an hour.
Technology (and babies) are disposable these days, move on to the "Next Big Thing".
The X-Box that they fight over today will be the Cabbage Beanie Doll Baby that is ignored the next year.
The sickness of mind that is on exhibit is symptomatic of serious problems throughout our society.
There is no "waiting". Waiting for sex. Waiting to build support for the legislation you want. Waiting to buy what you can afford AFTER you have paid for your necessities.
Self-reliance is a thing of the past (which is why they blame the store's "lack of security" rather than themselves). There is far too little accountability today. The right's stance against abortion is not to "punish" the mother for having sex, it is because the baby should NOT be punished because it is "inconvenient" or "embarassing".
The xboxes are all going to be recalled anyway. Heh!
You summed it up well. We live in an instant world now. Yet, patience remains a virtue.
