Defining a New Silver Spoon Generation

For some reason this line of dialogue went to our very hearts. First inasmuch as we believe there was a time in United States history that Affirmative Action was a necessary device to assist in leveling the playing field — for those who received the entitlement. Secondly, we also believe that it was a definitive STOP point for those who were held down by Jim Crow laws and the like.

And oh yes I have had members of Hispanic ethnicity, as well as those African American colleagues and friends openly disclose to me — that the most difficult part about getting into UCLA Law and Harvard Law School was in fact — getting out. They each said to me that the roughest thing about getting in to law school was the notion that once you’re in — there is no way your’re getting out. Can we all understand an investment? Well on a microcosmic level these friends of mine openly admitted that they were minorities going to two of the nicest law schools in the country and not making it through would make the universities involved look very bad; therefore, so as not to tarnish any school these students were given amenities that other students never even heard of.

“Really, this ‘silver spoon’ business?” Coulter said. “Are they going to do that about every Republican while simultaneously revering FDR and JFK? They really were pure silver spoon aristocrats inheriting all their money. Mitt Romney gave away all the money he inherited. He made it on his own.” This was something ween’t aware of — although given the individuals credibility, integrity, and dignity with again — who the messenger just happened to be we find that to be overwhelming sufficient.

“And the silver spoon Obama got — I mean that generation, it can’t be denied, you can’t support affirmative action and then pretend it doesn’t exist. You don’t transfer from Occidental [College], which by his own accounts in his autobiography he mostly spent smoking pot, to a fine Ivy League university like Columbia if you’re not checking off ‘black’ on your application. So you know, the silver spoon since I’ve been alive has been an affirmative action silver spoon.”

And while she dismissed the rich-versus-poor meme some Democrats have been promoting, she did say there was another sort of class warfare occurring between those earning money from the government and those whose tax dollars are paying for it.

“I just don’t think Americans are angry at people who go out, work hard and show talent and make the world a better place,” she said. “Do we hate Steve Jobs or Bill Gates?…I think the real class warfare that Americans are hopping mad about is the class warfare between those of us who pay taxes and the people’s whose salary they pay — for their fabulous pensions and they’re partying trips to Las Vegas. And visiting whores in Colombia, and the highest-income counties in the nation not being Beverly Hills or Grosse Point or Greenwich, Conn., but counties all around the seat of government in Washington, D.C.

“That kind of class warfare I think really strikes a chord right now. Not somebody who has worked hard and done well for himself.”
