26. Yeah? SO? He didn't say it was "BETTER." You made that up.
He told you how some people actually FEEL...and you, without any thought or ability to see NUANCE, ASS-umed that he was a "supporter" of the sentiment, just because HE POINTED IT OUT.

It's like someone saying "GEE, that building over there is on fire" and you assert that the speaker is a champion of arson.

Stop changing the subject. You screwed up. You didn't read for comprehension.
