Exactly...and if we would only install certain people in a the air-conditioned corner office in control of certain things, they would perform equally admirably.

Unfortunately for those folks who are waiting for someone to provide them with the "same opportunities", the world is a competitive place and there are those of us who will pursue and take those opportunities ("the hunters") without waiting for someone to hand them to us ("the gatherers").

If you think the world owes you something, you are already lost. Life ain't fair. Get over it.
