    The same 4 in 10 wonder why our communities and society in general is so jacked up.

    What they should have said is that more people are SETTLING for the view.....

    I once had a nail that I needed to drive, but didn't have a hammer so I settled for a cresent wrench that I had and made it work as a hammer. It did the job, but didn't do it nearly as good as the tool designed for the job and scared and damaged my cresent wrench. So, I don't ACCEPT the view that I don't NEED a hammer, but if I am forced to, I will SETTLE for a cresent wrench if circumstances place me in a condition where I need to drive a nail, but don't have a hammer.

    But you thought that was ok, because you're really a butter knife trying to pass for a screw driver
