  •  There is something to the "entitlement" (0+ / 0-)

    rant some publicans engage in.  It seems that privilege gives rise to a sense of entitlement in some people and then when that privilege is challenged, they become resentful.

    This is not the same kind of entitlement as man's god-given or natural rights, which, when satisfied, merely translate into peace of mind.  No, the entitlement of the privileged is derived from an artificial human hierarchy, typically maintained by heredity.  Perhaps the ease with which their resentment surfaces is somehow connected to the authoritarian rule of the pater familias.

    How many of out pissant punitive pols are rebelling against their dads?

    The Constitution is not a menu for an exclusive diner.
