Does cognitive dissonance hurt?

For those of you what ain't hep, cognitive dissonace is simultaneously beliving two contradictory ideas to be true. For a further explanation, click here.

Now, my employers are arch conservatives. I overheard one of them in a discussion (preaching to the choir) about privacy and civil rights.

"There are cameras all over the highways! Congress is making sure that baseball players don't take steroids! Where does it end?"

I would have liked to have reminded her that we are "fighting a war on terr," to quote her President. I would have liked to have pointed out that the Patriot Act was passed by a mostly Republican congress, and that this same congress has taken it upon itself to fight the war on steroids. I would have liked to have asked her when she last donated to the ACLU to make sure that our civil rights regarding privacy were not violated by the Feds.

Instead, I rolled my eyes.

That's all I got.
