These things happen. I try not to talk about these sorts of issues IRL with family and friends unless they are informed and intelligent enough not to simply run off emotion and political affiliation. I think I've posted here before that at family dinners out I used to get stuck picking up the bill, until at one dinner, I got a bunch of shit talk from a sister and her husband about the usual crap, which the rest of the table generally agreed with, so told them all if they felt that way about people with good incomes they could just split the bill amongst themselves. They were erally pissed the gravy train had ended and they had to "pay their fair share." Now I just refuse to talk about such issues with family...and still don't pay for family meals.
