Republicans and RW infiltrator trolls like to say "Life isn't fair, deal with it."

Anyone who believes this, does not believe in a civilized society. A civilized society is built upon fairness, and in opposition to allowing human suffering. If the rule of society is survival of the fittest then there's no need for civilization. Just go back to the jungle and live with the animals.


Deal with it? Yeah, deal with it by working harder to make life more fair.

I agree with you on that. You only hear that meme that life's not fair from those who got theirs already.

If I may expand on that..

they got theirs by either gaming the system, or outright theft.

I can admire a thief that targets those that can afford it...

I despise the thief that rips off the the poor, the sick, and the unlucky.

I was raised to not charge folks for water, when they are thirsty. (I'll never be a member of the 1%, with that attitude...)
