Fair.. a word being thrown about endlessly this political season – especially by our president and the democrats. Fair share and economic fairness seem to come up in all talking points and speeches. Every time I hear that word fair I always start wondering, what is fair and who determines what is fair? I’m sure if you ask a hand full of people what is fair you would get a handful of answers. And just who determines what is fair. The president? The congress? What I think is fair, might not be what you think is fair. Well I have news for everyone LIFE NEVER WAS, IS NOT NOW, AND NEVER WILL BE FAIR. And that’s a good thing.
Over the past few decades we have tried to make all things fair for all people, we are now learning what a disaster it has been. A case in point, firefighters in a town in New York take a test for promotions, no blacks pass the test so they promote no one. Why? Because someone determined it’s not fair. The test must have been race biased they said. I’m still trying to figure out how a test can be race biased. Last I checked 2+2=4 no matter what your race is. Affirmative Action is supposed to make things more fair. Show me how? The man that aced the test studied night and day, went to night school and got a tutor. Busted his hump to pass that test, but because no blacks passed the test he was out. Now I want someone to explain to me how that is fair? A man invests all his time an energies, sacrifices time with his family so he can better himself and he’s told you got the highest mark on the test, a 98% but sorry we still can’t promote you. Fair?
Another case, years ago some liberal brain-e-ack decided that we must not hurt our children’s feelings. There should be no winners or losers. Instead we are all winners, because that is the fair thing to do. I wish I could find the one person that started that, because I would love to give him a big slap across the head. He could tell me how unfair that is. Children play sports, the winners get trophies, but also the losers get trophies. Now again, can someone explain to me how that is fair to the winners? They practice, sacrifice time to make themselves winners, but get nothing special, because the losers got the same thing they did. Also the losers are thinking why should we practice or sacrifice our time we are going to get a trophy no matter what. And WA-LA we now have a generation thinking everything is owed to them. Fair?
When I was a kid we would choose up sides and play ball. When we lost, we would say “O.K. We’ll get you next time.” You see the difference? By losing, it made us want to strive to better ourselves. Try to make ourselves better than before. Children need to sample life, the good as well as the bad. If we hide the bad from them, we are doing them more harm than good.
It’s been proven over and over again, liberal views and policies just do not work.
This is one mans opinion.
