Quote of the day–caller on the Glen Beck radio show

The people that do the equalizing will never equalize themselves.

Caller on the Glen Beck radio show

She was born in Yugoslavia.
[No matter how true and how obvious from history this is many people still want “economic justice” or “fairness” imposed by the government.

I’ve been trying to come up with a good response to this. The best I have been able to do is, “How do you measure fairness/justice?” Followed up with something like, “If you can’t express it in numbers then it’s just opinion.” in the most condescending tone I can muster (Barb says I do this tone very well).

But perhaps this caller who has a more intimate knowledge of how these work is a better response.–Joe]

  1. “How do you measure fairness/justice?”

    Exactly. I’ve had people argue that the only way to make restitution for past discrimination is to create reverse discrimination, “until it’s even”. When I ask them how they’ll know when it’s even and fair, and we can go back to equality under the law, they can’t answer, and usually get angry.
