Obama’s Fake Fairness Fairy
By John Ransom
Uh-oh. The Fake Fairness Fairy is on the loose again.
And that smell? That’s not pixie dust.
Obama wants you to know that your next promotion, the car you own, your house, your kids, you don’t deserve any of it. Someone else is mostly responsible for it.
“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own,” Senate candidate and fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren explained to us months ago. “You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory.”
Warren- and Obama- explain that in return for not worrying about “marauding bands” taking everything we have, we should just allow a marauding government to take what they will, while we lay still and Think-of-England.
Apparently Warren isn’t familiar with the 2nd Amendment, which has always been a most effective way of preventing marauders, public, private, quasi-governmental and federally governmental, from plundering our private property.
Her own state, Massachusetts, provided a great example in 1775 at the Battles of Lexington and Concord of the 2nd Amendment in action.
Perhaps as one of the other great Law Givers and Professors in this country, Warren ought to borrow a history book or two from Sarah Palin.
And actually read them.
Oh, and, never mind that the factory owner Warren and Obama take for granted already pays taxes for all those services Warren lists- just like the rest of us do. In fact, the factory owner probably pays more in taxes, plus pays for infrastructure improvements required under local zoning rules, improvements that likely make the locality more attractive economically.
But, who cares about facts when you can whip out the Fake Fairness Fairy.
More and more, the Democrats have been turning out the Fake Fairness Fairy.
War on Women? The Fake Fairness Fairy.
The War of Catholics? The Fake Fairness Fairy.
Deporting some illegal immigrants, while allowing others to stay here illegally? The Fake Fairness Fairy.
Tax hike on the evil millionaires and billionaires? The Fake Fairness Fairy.
Solyndra, Fast and Furious, voter intimidation, Trayvon Martin, the war on energy- all brought to us by the Fake Fairness Fairy.
Look, I don’t object to Obama turning the novelty of his “blackness” into the one-way mirror into which he never tires of looking. And I don’t object when he then writes books about it and makes a fortune.
Good for him.
But let me be clear.
He’s done it on the back of the Fake Fairness Fairy that the rest of us pay for.
We paid for it with a great civil war, testing whether our republic or any republic can long endure.
We paid for it by separate, but equal laws that took its toll on white society as well as black.
We paid for it in the great civil rights struggle, which has rewritten our constitution to give equal protection under the law to all, although the Fake Fairness Fairy says that some laws are more equal than others.
So, now the content of character no longer determines our outcome.
Instead the Fake Fairness Fairy cares only about our race, gender, income or religion- as long as it’s not Christian.
This, in part, explains our fake president’s obsession with taking from some and giving to others in his quest for fake fairness.
After all, it wasn’t fair he was born in Indonesia ;-).
It wasn’t fair that he’s parlayed a resume as thin as his body into fame, riches, a real estate deal with a convicted influence-peddler and notorious slumlord that included, a massively unfair mansion.
Was the Nobel Peace prize he was awarded fair? Was his Harvard degree fair? Was it fair when he unsealed the divorce records of his Republican opponent in the race for the US Senate in Illinois that set Obama up to be president?
I can understand why Obama might have some mixed feeling about whether he has actually earned his way in the game of life.
Because in truth, he hasn’t.
Not in the way you and I and everyone else have to.
We don’t get to appeal to the Fake Fairness Fairy when the coal mine shuts down. We don’t get to appeal to the Fake Fairness Fairy when we miss a mortgage payment so we can make payroll for our employees. We don’t get to appeal to the Fake Fairness Fairy, because there is no magic fairy that makes everything fair.
What you do with what God gives you is the only fairness that exists, to paraphrase Forrest Gump.
And come November Obama will discover the painful lesson that the rest of us knew a long time ago.
That Fairness Fairy?
