I feel that way when someone else votes to raise taxes on me, but not
himself. Happens all the time.

That said, if you develop for the Mac, you usually are a buyer of Apple
products, and Mac developers are influencers in the market - to varying
degrees - far more so than the $$$ value of the sale. I think its relevant
to discuss here because we as developers are empowered, one way or the
other, to make a difference. Free enterprise means we can do more with out
dollars and influence if we are smart about it.
