In a supposed discussion of financial ethics with left-wing Harvard professor Michael Sandel on Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Ann Curry decried people being able to pay more money to get through airport security faster: “…there’s an inherent unfairness to it….it’s about those with money having an easier life than those who don’t. And there’s something fundamentally unfair about that.”
Ann Curry gets paid the big bucks to put her…I don’t know…sense of guilt and shame on display for all to see how unfair it is for her and others — say, Michael Moore, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett et al — who rail against their good fortunes earned through their hard labors and ingenuity.
They’re right! It is unfair for us to have to listen to these urber wealthy socialist carp about how rich they are and how the poor ruin their utopian landscape.
I can just hear their outcry for the creation of their utopian level playing field, “Couldn’t the government do something about all of these poor people ruining my view of the world?”
“It is fundamentally unfair” for others to have more opportunities and privilege. “Until we have a level playing field” it will remain unfair. And they say these things with a straight face while they grow their bank accounts and make their investments. These are a very strange breed of socialist indeed.
They have identified the flaw in our Earthly existence and now someone needs to find a way to make the correction so that they can get back into their stretch limos, go to the airport and fly off in their private jet to Heavenly Mountain for a weekend of fresh powder skiing.
My question to the universe is, “Why are you gifting these guilt ridden psychologically infirm iggits with so much of our wealth and influence?” If they are the punch line, what is the joke?
