"Of course bad things happen to basement dwellers, too,

and must be explained. Explained away, as a rule.
Someone did it to me. Evil people. If you get cancer it was some chemical. If you're kid's moody it's because he was immunized. If you're poor, someone stole your money. If you're depressed about being, well, you, it's because evil people won't acknowledge how swell you are and double down on their perfidy by demanding you pay a copay for your Effexor. You didn't smoke for forty years and get cancer; you were targeted by an evil corporation for smoking. The morphing of prosecution witness into a defense witness is the denouement of this process." -- Sippican Cottage: It's A Calvin And Hobbes World

Your Say

It's the flip-side of ascribing good things to luck. Rich people, they were born to wealth not hard work. Smart people, they were born with tons of fact and insights not a lot of study. Good health, good genes not many hours away from the couch. Etc.

Stupid, poor, and lazy people are the same, they just channel their common habits toward different goals. The PC explanation is luck because we can't make anyone feel bad. Better we burn the country to the ground with welfare and hip-hop and socialism than tell the truth.

Spammer feigning interest in your website lives in his mother's basement. He should go to school and get a proper command of English, which is addictive toward fascism. He left his morals in Pakistan. Do not click his link.
