    in line.  But, the fast food restaurant comparison is apt because that's exactly what fast food restaurants do--provide equal service for a set price.

    Republicans keep nattering about making people equal and that not being possible.  That's a red herring.  Government is charged with providing equal service.  That's why people who want special treatment have tried to privatize it.  But, just like the schools, if people want extra, they should patronize an establishment that charges them more.

    Don't deprive some people of the basics, so you can feel superior.

    How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
