Well, you took the test and got less than a passing grade.

IF you think smugness and condescension are values -- especially for me -- you got two more thoughts coming. I don't hate people in need, either. I do think there is something wrong with espousing neediness, but I have seen lots of need in my life. I did not stay that way, though.

IF you're talking about the culture as a whole, yeah, I hear you; the traits you list are unpleasant; but I think they are as likely to be found in the streets of Basra as of Cincinnatti.
