It always seems to me like the ones who advocate or justify
being unprepared or under-prepared the loudest
are the first to turn to the prepared for "sharing".
Are we, the prepared, also to shoulder the burden of
being prepared for those who openly ridicule us, until
a crisis arises ? I think not.
I once had a Californian try to justify to me that he
should be awarded my Navy pay indefinitely. I asserted that
if he deserved my pay, the D.O.D. would already be sending it
to him. BUT since they saw fit to give it directly to me, I was
going to opt to keep it.
The point is, some folks are nervy bastards.
