    useful to turn these "all those folks" arguments into personal ones... For example, any person making comments about "the homeless" or "the poor" receive this simple response from me: "How many homeless people do you know?"  I submit that, absent personal, first-hand knowledge of examples often cited in argument, one is NOT QUALIFIED to sit in judgment therof, and maybe not even then.  Of course, doing that takes the argument into uncomfortable areas, and that is anathema to most pundits, professional and otherwise.  But politics is not simple, there are no easy answers, and each question needs in depth, qualitative and quantitative exposition, which is far from convenient for most.
