  1. Laws are in place that equalize opportunity. The “fairness” movement has socialist undercurrents. This country isn’t the country I grew up in, even though I was born and raised here. This is disturbing stuff.

  2. The quotes are very poignant and quite relevant to the image.What I find most interesting is the correlation between what is occurring at the U.N. this week and your choice of this picture. It is my humble opinion that you are person who believes in fairness but knows only too well that it often doesn’t exsist. Fairness is a word that is arbitrary and subject to many different interpertations depending what side of the “fairness” fence sits on. I fail to see the similarity of fairness with socialism and perhaps that is due to my own ignorance.Fairness is not an entitlement program; fairness is that the rules apply to everyone and not just a few. Thank you for allowing me to be on my ” soap box” and now I will step down with grace and dignity intact.
