I don't care if you don't care what I think but what I do think is this whole LibThink baloney started with 'participation trophies'.

Part of growing , and growing up, is learning how to lose. If you get a trophy just for showing up you will always think you're special. Well, you're not.

Made this same point to my wife earlier today. libs just handle setbacks; that's what competition teaches you. But nooooo. Hand a kid a trophy for finishing dead last and you send exactly the wrong message.
