It's words that have a meaning by themselves, I don't believe the meaning changes dependent on who said it. Experience or otherwise. Poor parenting, lack of education, lack of opportunity, bad career choices, lack of ambition, lack of balls, downright laziness. We all have the same start in life but by the time we become of working age our attitudes and aspirations have been shaped by our mentors. Our parents, our teachers, our environment, our friends, where we live, the school we go to. Not everyone has the same opportunities, shouldnt we be trying to create those opportunities for others instead of saying "tough shit buddy"? I say "we" because this is not just an issue for the US it's an issue for any country. If we create the right environment for people to prosper, then more people will.
