But in the age of 'entitlement' and 'race card' excuse making, bullying, and going to court are the new answers to good old fashioned self-determination and effort.
Chris Dorner was a sub-par police officer fired for incompetence but he charged racism for his lack of success. And so race-hustler Jesse Jackson wants to elevate the cop killer to folk hero status under the banner of race victim-hood.
College kids have gotten the memo too. Lehigh University student Megan Thode got a C+ in one of her core courses. So she got a lawyer, Dick Orloski who contends the grade scuttled her dream of becoming a licensed professional counselor. Dick insists there exists a 'conspiracy' to force Megan out of the graduate degree program. So Ms Thode wants $1.3 million in damages.
Oh yea, and Megan is the daughter of another professor at Lehigh. So she pays no tuition. Not that it matters but Megan apparently needed a 'B' to get to the next step but she didn't get the work done and so ended up with a C+. Megan immediately leaned on daddy and issued ultimatums to the professor and lawyered-up - no doubt with daddy's okay.
So now it's up to a court to either spank Megan for being the spoiled entitlement minded brat she is, or reward her for acting-out and artificially bestow her with a grade she didn't earn. Stay tuned.
