You said it exactly! That's what's so sad, that so many Americans don't care about their fellow citizens and see anything that helps their neighbor as a loss for them. Not to mention that it's a money-saver in the long run.

We are a nation of idiots! I hate to keep saying that but the examples are too many to count.

Sometimes the subtext is subtle and oftentimes it's ugly and overt.
