Republican: Kids today are so spoiled... smartphones, computers, a college education...
My folks (and I) worked to pay all my older brother’s costs when he went to college, he got a “free ride”. He was the first in the family to get a degree. After he got out and got a good job, my dad, who’d had another heart attack and couldn’t work, asked him for a loan, because “he owed us”. My brother’s response was, “YOU OWED ME A COLLEGE EDUCATION”, and he refused to loan my folks any money.
That brother was an “arch conservative” and ultra-Republcan, who always cussed taxes, and NEVER worked on anything other than government contracts for “private corporations” in aerospace and Defense.
I earned the second degree in the family (a couple actually) and worked all through school to pay my own way, with a stipend from VA on the G.I. Bill, that at least paid most of my rent, but nothing more.
The point being, I literally EARNED my degrees, while my brother, the “conservative” was handed a silver spoon, not unlike Mitt. Ryan also went to college with money from Social Security survivor benefits, he would now reduce, or cancel completely.
Yes, “spoiled” has been going on for some time. Republican politics have also spoiled in the last three decades, and the stench is becoming, unbearable for “the masses”.
