Just a short post, I promise. Hearing President Obama lecturing America on "Inequality" made me sit down and consider a few things.
Does President Obama fight against "Inequality" with regard to opportunities, wealth?
So all should be equal?
If the median income in the United States were, for example, $60,000 (I'm making up the number as this is just moon-beaming)...then if he is sincere, he should give away all of his millions until he is only worth $60,000.
Al Gore and every other millionaire should divest themselves of their fortunes, giving to the poor so as to raise each of us up to $60,000.
That would be equal. Median-all the same. No one 'earning' more than that would receive a penny more-instead it would be put into funds for the next generation coming up, who could receive their $60,000 at birth, or 11th birthday. More moon-beaming.
Would John Stewart or Al Franken be willing to give away their fortunes until each only has $60,000 left?
Wouldn't that be a moral victory for those who wish to root "Inequality" out of our Nation?
Please remember: if all are equal, then the fireman who saves a family from a burning building is just as worthy as the drug smuggling, child murdering gang member to receive his $60,000.
As a wise man once said, "We are all equal under the Law. THAT is equality."
But enough about Mark Levin.
