    and wasn't given anything types — starting with Mitt Romney — were in fact given EVERYTHING on a silver platter. And their jobs are infinitely easier and lazier than those of people I know who work in warehouses and restaurants and on garbage truck.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

    •  To his credit, my friend did work hard (3+ / 0-)

      He came from a non-wealthy family and worked his way through college.  He's very intelligent, but doesn't seem to understand that he's not better than someone who will never achieve his level of intelligence or excellence, and who will never be able to qualify for a high-paying job.

      It's disturbing to me that ordinary people think they're more entitled than others because of natural endowments or advantages that others may not possess.

      And you're right--those entitled folks think they work so hard, but none of them would last a day on a garbage truck!
