    I have been around a long time, and I have met a lot of people. All kinds of people, from all walks of life, all stations in life, all kinds of backgrounds and demographics.

    Most of the "entitled" people I've met are rich. But the majority have been the sons and daughters of rich people.

    Entitled to possess anything they want
    Entitled to do whatever they want
    Entitled to say whatever they want
    Entitled to the deference and obedience of everyone around them

    Police: Sen. Paul’s son assaulted flight attendant

    The grandson of former presidential candidate Ron Paul and son of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is charged with assaulting a flight attendant during a U.S. Airways flight from Lexington, Ky., to Charlotte last weekend.

    William Paul, 19, was arrested Jan. 5 at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport after his flight landed. The Bowling Green, Ky., resident, also was charged with consuming beer/wine underage, disorderly conduct and being intoxicated and disruptive.

    Initial news reports last week did not cite the assault charge, but it is unclear why that charge was not reported at the time.

    The misdemeanor assault on a female by aggressive physical force charge was confirmed by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Saturday.

    Compared with Chappaquiddick, not much of a story.

    Except that it shows that the Pauls are the same as the rest of us, not the gods some would have us believe.

    Let's see, what can we talk about: all the good Obama and the Dems have done for the country these past 6 years or Ron Paul's grandson?

    How do you make the leap that a 19-year-old kid who drank and did stupid things did so out of a sense of entitlement?

    It is an opinion first of all. Second, how a person treats others who are in a position of providing service to you can tell a lot about how they view that person and themselves. Was William Paul taught through word and deed that employees are property who can be abused? Young master Paul failed this test miserably on the flight.
