To: thoolou
I'm a man and glad you get it. There is no appeasing those who lead with their heart rather than their head. They simply don't and never will get how the real world works. Examples:

Taxes: To them, fair is taking more and more from the producers in some unworkable concept of equality. To me, fair is everyone pay the same percentage for the same services;
Guns: To them, guns are bad and kill people and we all love people, so if guns are gone we will all live in peace and harmony. To me, guns will never go away, so allow me to defend myself and my loved ones against the bad guys that will always have access to guns;
Economic equality: To them, all should have the same amount of wealth no matter how hard or little an individual works or not work at all. To me, wealth should be applauded for those who strive to produce, create, and build;
Social equality: To them, they claim equality means the same opportunity for all no matter their race, sex, age, ethnic background, disability, etc. To me, while I agree with the concept, it also means their particular background should have NO bearing on their status in life while if wanting to be treated as an equal. That said, I'm really getting tired of certain races and cultures demanding more than they deserve simply because they fall into one of those categories. Sue me. Actually, I love it when qualified people sue companies and institutions because they didn't fit into a certain category.

I could go on. I've had it with this nation of takers and many others around the globe. I never asked for a damn thing and built myself up from the age of 16 away from my crappy parents. I know a lot more about life than most of these hippie Marxist wannabes could even imagine in their worst nightmares. The bottom line problem is that commonsense is a dying attribute. It's now all about how people "feel" rather than "think".

I feel I should have the latest sneakers; I feel I should have the latest crappy cable show. I feel; I need; I want, so gimme...I'm entitled.
