You are arguing for something that has no bearing on my criticism. For some there was an opportunity, those from 1984 to 1994. For 28 full years since then others didn't have that opportunity. That's inherently inequitable. Sorry, there is no argument against that fact.
Once the last lifetime holder dies that criticism will become moot. For perspective, that should happen after I die. But if any parent was wise enough to buy their child one the final year it was offered this program will have an impact for decades to come.
I am not one of the lucky ones to hold an LL.
My Dad and Mom, and both my Grandpa and Grandma hunted Deer with us before I was old enough to hunt.
To this day I do not understand why they did not impress on me the urgency to buy one.
Now that said, I don’t mind and I am not mad at those that hold an LL.
They were just smarter than me, and timing is everything.
It seems you are hung up a little on a ‘lifes not fair’ type issue.
I agree, it is not.
You seem like a very smart guy.
If I were you I would take advantage of everything you can right now and live in this moment.
The way the world is going it could all be gone in the push of a button.
It is what makes ‘life’ so dang exciting!
