Once again, ColdHardClashers, we’re back at it to call Leftists out on their misuse of language to attempt to control the narrative and debate. Similar to when common criminals use their skills to commit crimes, just think of what could be accomplished if Leftists used their physical and intellectual faculties for truth instead of deception.
Today’s column is brought to you by the word inequality.
We can start with a simple definition, that of “lack of equality.” This definition should satisfy most Clash Daily readers. Digging further, we can provide socio-economic context and go with (from (Merriam-Webster) “an unfair situation in which some people have more rights or better opportunities than other people.” Or we can take the Left’s definition: “That guy is making more than he should. Let’s trash him to make anyone making less really ticked off.”
A continuance of Occupy Wall Street, inequality is the Left’s latest War on Women and LGBTQuiznos “cause” that they seem to think falls under civil rights. I put cause in quotes because to be a true cause, your efforts have to help and not hurt people. As you know, whatever Leftists direct their energy toward is made much worse.
I mean this with as much sincerity as I can muster through words: There is no inequality in America.
There is no inequality in America.
Bill Gates makes more than you and I. Tim Cook makes more than you and I. Hedge fund hot shot Leftist and current sufferer of what Rush Limbaugh calls “Affluenza” Tom Steyer makes more than you and I. Why? Because these people provide more value to more people than you and I. You don’t have to look at billionaires to see this; chances are, anyone in your life who has more money than you provides more value (with the exception of trust fund kids or lottery winners. Personally, I know neither.) This is not inequality as traditionally defined.
Right now you are making the money you are because of the decisions you have made up until this point. Hard circumstances that everyone experiences be damned. This is not my opinion nor is this an insult. This is fact. If we’re not happy with how much we make, we must determine why, determine what we can do to change it, and go do it. This goes with all other aspects of our lives. The struggle is not the conditions we find ourselves in but in overcoming the battles between our ears. Admittedly, our internal struggles are not easy to overcome. Trying to lose weight is hard if, when you try to jog beyond the mailbox, your feet feel like cement blocks, every joint in your body aches, and your lungs are on fire – not to mention how tasteless good food is compared to junk food. Anyone in America who wants to succeed at anything can – for now.
The Left bathes in their own money and power but is on an unprecedented war path to limit this for anyone they don’t agree with. Your president, Barack Obama, said this in 2010:
“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”
And Tuesday of this week (to billionaires):
“You pretty much have more than you’ll ever use and your family will ever use.”
This is a guy who didn’t write his own books, never really held a job before being state senator and US senator, and he and his next few generations will have plenty of money to never have to work a day in their lives. Who in the hell is he to criticize anyone for making as much money as they wish?
The loudest, most ear-piercing, primal scream falls short in conveying how frustrating it is to see a president of our beloved United States talk and much less think this way. The statements above expose Obama’s weapons-grade economic ignorance and the fact that he yanked this pablum straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (dedicated to Satan, by the way).
On second thought, maybe there really is income inequality Direct your attention to any large corporate welfare baby receiving taxpayer-assisted grants, tax credits, or guaranteed loans. How can small businesses compete with large corporations with the resources to donate millions to campaigns or “foundations”?
Here’s another definition of inequality: Our government forces companies to pay over $1 TRILLION every year to comply with regulations. A multi-national corporation has the legal and compliance staff to get through these hurdles while small businesses, comprising the vast majority of all employers in America, don’t have the necessary capital and connections.
Inequality. The word has no meaning except for government elites at all levels deciding for themselves who succeeds and who doesn’t. THIS is inequality.
