What do you hear little children say all the time – “it’s not fair”. But we thought that you were not supposed to grow up and learn that life is not fair – nor is it meant to be!
I hear Democrats, President Obama and others using versions of this phrase on almost a daily basis now.
Not wanting to go into all the individual points this phrase is used for I want to just deal with the concept of “what is fair”.
Is it fair that some people are better looking then others? Is it fair that some people are downright unattractive?
Is it fair that some people have great bodies and most of us don’t? Is it fair that some people can eat all kinds of things and not put on weight while others of us just look at food and seem to put on weight?
Is it fair that some people can go all night and day and seem to have everlasting energy while others of drag along on a daily basis?
Is it fair that some people get sick when other do not?
Is it fair that some people are smarter then other people?
Is it fair that some people have great athletic ability and others of us are uncoordinated morons?
Is it fair that some people know things that others do not?
Is it fair that some people inherit money while the majority of us need to work for it? Is it fair that some people are able to invent or think of an invention and make lots of money? Is it fair that some people become great actors and make all kinds of money and most don’t? Is it fair that some people successfully build a business empire and make loads of money while most of us don’t?
Is it fair that a lot of us must pay taxes while others do not have to? Is it fair that taxes are based on our incomes rather then our productivity or looks or weight or what the government actually needs to run just the areas designated in the constitution?
Is it fair that I am never hungry and many others are daily?
Is it fair that I have access to great medicine while many others don’t ?
Is it fair that I have religious freedom and many others don’t?
Is it fair that I am a woman and men seem to rule the world?
Is it fair that children must follow rules? Is it fair that I cannot have as much as others? Is it fair that life is not minute-by-minute what I want it to be?
Is it fair that there are poor people in the world? Is it fair that all people do not have a sense of humor similar to my own? Is it fair that everyone does not want to live the way I choose?
Is it fair that someone else’s needs are more important then mine?
This list could go on and on…..
Get over it – life is not fair in any aspect – it is just life and you can do whatever you want or are capable of doing with it – so enjoy and make the most out of it without requiring me to participate in you life!
Any politician using these types of phrases should be immediately removed as they are not mature enough to lead anyone particularly themselves….. is that FAIR??????
