This has got to be the worst board for objective, intelligent discussion. There are some good posters here, but overall, too many uneducated, ill-informed folks talking about a subject they do not understand.
I would suggest to the doom and gloom day posters to get an education. Start first at the elementary level, than work your way up to that GED. Now I know it may take several years to accomplish this, but you really have no other choice. Life is tough, but when you are stupid, it is even tougher.
