So the Reverend Al wants everything to be equal. He wants every thing in everybody’s house to be equal. Well fine, then. Let’s talk equal.
Religion will be outlawed, after all one can’t have more than one church, that’s not equal. One kind of pet or more likely no pets as some people are allergic. No cable or dish, not everyone can afford them. They’re gone. New cars or any cars, a thing of the past. New clothes only from one store……….let’s pick Wal mart because more people shop there, majority rules you know, in the new order. No DVD’s unless everyone has them and they all must be exactly the same or else it’s not equal. No more movies, not everyone can afford that. No minority movies either, equality you know. Personal property will become the stuff of legends. No going to college, after all not everyone is interested in college so the rest of you people who want to advance your eduction, too bad, so sad, it’s just equal. No more children after all not everyone can have children, and that’s not far. Sterilization for all, now that’s equal. No affirmative action, everyone is equal. No more minority set asides, they’re just not equal. No more resturants, amusement parks, no proms, no nothing. No jobs, all will simply get a stipend from the federal government to sit around doing nothing because that will make us all equal. But wait who will pay the taxes to feed the masses, clothe the naked, house the homeless, that’s right, there won’t be any taxpayers just tax gluttons. We won’t need legislatures any more just one person to run things but wait, that would make him more equal than the rest of us so I guess no one gets to be in charge. Just who is in favor of chaos I like to know? Well I know but I bet most folks don’t have a clue.
Life, Al is not equal. Sometimes you have more, sometimes you have less. Those who work hard, save, invest do better. Those who sit on their butts watching Geraldo, Judge Judy, Jerry Springer and Oprah, sucking from the government teat, inpregnating teenage girls and killing each other with knives, guns and whatever else is handy don’t do well. Surprise, surprise, surprise.
I don’t want your version of equal. I don’t want communities where young thugs roam the streets shooting at whatever takes their fancy. I don’t want to live anywhere that parents can’t or won’t disipline their children. I don’t want to be involved with people who refuse to take responsibility for their actions and refuse to admit their problems. White, black, yellow, red, brown it doesn’t matter. What matters is integrity, honesty, loyalty, freedom and sacred honor and those virtues know no color.
I realize these words are not in the Reverend’s vocabulary. Maybe someone should help him look them up.
