Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Powerline discusses income inequality. It’s almost entirely caused by White Privilege but not in the way the Left means it.
The newest study says highest income goes to people who stayed in school, stayed out of trouble, got a job and kept it, got married before having kids and stayed married, and have at least two children. In other words, traditional, conservative, “acting White” behaviors that Leftists call “White Privilege” but we call “normal” or “common sense.” And those behaviors pay off.
Plainly, this is unfair. The only solution is to make everyone come out equal:
Prevent studious children from getting better grades than goof-offs by doing away with grades;
Prevent scholars from getting better educations than drop-outs by teaching nothing useful in the schools;
Prevent the law-abiding from having better records than troublemakers by declining to prosecute or by plea bargaining, expunging and eliminating ‘the box’ on employment applications;
Prevent the industrious from having better work records than slackers by making all jobs part-time and temporary, even if it means we must impose exorbitant overhead like Obama-care premiums and $15 minimum wages;
Prevent the burden of dealing with the consequences of sex outside marriage by paying to kill “oops” babies;
Prevent marriage by making it a farce available to every perversion, and punish men who try by making family court a life sentence of penury.
America will only be a Fair society when we all live identical lives and since we can’t elevate everyone to the penthouse, we’ll have to reduce everyone to the trailer park to live solitary, poor, nasty and brutish lives.
We’re well on the way and ordinary Americans know it.
Which might be why Trump’s campaign slogan resonated with so many people.
