    The "as you get older, you turn more conservative" idiom is a myth. Well, there is one parallel - old people and conservatives both tend to be crotchety.

    That's nice.

    It is, its also reality. No one is stepping up to make my life any better. I work. I don't work, I don't eat.

    Yeah, no one stepped up to make your life better by, you know, making roads, the Internet, farming, providing food and water, and making the entire society as a whole that you live in. Unless you live in the woods and you're posting on the Internet via the magic of your mind, how about you eat a piece of humble pie and quiet down. You aren't that great.

    Honestly, what have you done to even have that kind of attitude? You work? Ok great, here's a handshake. I hope you're good at whatever job it is you do, because no one cares.

    Paid my taxes. So no, no one "gave me" anything. I also don't need your handshake but plenty of people care that I am good at my job. Everyone that I deal with needs my experience and ability. Experience and ability that I have worked on for a career. Not sat on my ass waiting for someone to give me a hand out.

    25 years ago I was far more conservative than I am now and over that time have basically transformed into a libertarian. I like to think it's because with age and experience in the real world comes wisdom. Others would it's because with age comes senility.

    Great one. Because saying, "anyone in a tough spot deserves to be there because I've worked hard and no one helped me" isn't classic old man conservative talk.
