2. Swivel chair generals (Rs & Ts) are same as silver spoon entrepreneurs (trust fund babies).

Arm chair admirals and swivel chair generals send other people's sons (and daughters) to war.

Silver spoon babies and children of ivy league alumni, who think they are hot-shit business leaders because of their inheritance, blame the poor for being poor. They forget what a difference early childhood poverty makes, and bad nutrition makes. They've never lived in an inner city food desert or a house with no books.

Yes, some of the poor parents do make bad choices, like buying $150 sneakers for a kid instead of a month of fresh fruit and vegetables. But those are much more the exception than the rule, despite all the right wing bullshit propaganda about welfare queens.
