Whenever I get a bit down, I pull out my "Patton" Soundtrack & listen to
the Patton opening speech.   I always break out with joy everytime I
hear the words (paraphrased):  Americans loves a winner  ..  and will
not tolerate a loser!!    Nowadays it seems more like:  Americans love a
whiner and tolerates all the losers!!

Too bad.
