Resolving All Inequities: A Little Satire by Thomas Sowell

Now that we're in the Reign of The Obama, a lot of Radical Leftists have convinced themselves that the world is ready, willing, and interested to hear their "brilliant" ideas.  More times than not such ideas revolve around solving inequity problems, be it for individuals or nations.  Their ideas are to effect equality, which always sounds noble & righteous on the surface.  But if you dig a little deeper, you discover that they're not talking about equality of opportunity, rather they mean equality of end results.

I learned of a brilliant piece of satire by Thomas Sowell entitled A Personal Inequity: Me and Michael Jordan.  It succinctly explains why striving for such goals is not just silly, it's downright stupid.  Furthermore, if you comprehend what he's saying then you'll immediately understand why he, I, and many others do not agree with affirmative action; not because we're heartless individuals but precisely the opposite.
