It’s ‘Fundamentally Unfair’ That Instapundit Has More Blog Traffic!

Posted on | April 26, 2012 | 28 Comments

If that complaint seems absurd, how about the complaint made by Ann Curry on NBC’s Today Show?

“You know, it’s about those with money having an easier life than those who don’t. And there’s something fundamentally unfair about that. Because not everyone has access to being able to get money, to work for money.”

“Fairness,” defined as equality, means that everyone must be exactly the same. Everything must be split 50-50, even-Steven, or else whoever gets less is a victim of social injustice, unfairly oppressed and exploited by whoever gets more. Instapundit is therefore violating my civil rights!

    You should come out here to California and file suit.

    You’d probably win.

    I say that a new law should be passed that will “tax” those blogs that are “richer” in comments than other blogs a percentage of those “windfall” comments and give those comments to more deserving blogs.

    I’m wondering when Ann Curry’s going to get out her checkbook and start writing checks to all those unfortunate people? I mean, isn’t she what is considered part of the one percent?

    What is this new word “access”?

    Seeing it everywhere lately usually when a lib is whining.

     “Because not everyone has access to being able to get money, to work for money.”

    WTF? Everyone has access to money, and access to work. Freaking pandhandlers work for their coin.

    Maybe later. First, I’ve got to wait for a ruling from the Anti-Trust Division of the Justice Department on my lawsuit against my wife, who has been monopolizing the local vagina supply.

  • Jerry Wilson

     Out here you can get the state to pay for that as well.

  • PaulLemmen

     Yes. But you missed the fact that the quote you cite, the very justification the left uses, is a bald faced lie, part of the hijacking of the dialog and definition of the terms that the Cultural Marxists use to skew our national conversation and how we view our society. Sure, you got that it is a lie but didn’t seem to grasp the designs behind it or why it is deployed in the way it is. Thank Adorno and the rest of his ilk from the Frankfurt School.

     Will they pay for my wife’s breast augmentation surgery by issuing me an EBT card? You know, Extra Big Titties card?

    Ann Curry, perpetually stuck in Kindergarten.

  • Garym

    That clip of Ann Curry needs to be spread around the ‘sphere emmediately. You know, just to be fair.

  • Taxpayer1234

    That’s what Net Neutrality is for, donchaknow.

    I’m reminded of the French a couple years before the financial crises. They were whining (shocking I know) that it was unfair that the French GDP was rated lower than other European nations particularly the Germans. Their assertion was that while the Germans and others were more productive the French were happier, that this could be quantified (!) and should be factored in when calculating GDP.

    Ann Curry, your salary is unfair. You make loads more money than I do, which is unfair.Your life is easier than mine, which is unfair. Send the money, Ann, send the money.

    Rome’s Bureaucrats Better than the EPA’s at Increasing Prosperity!A comparison, with graphics, of how Rome’s takeovers left areas prosperous, whereas Obama/Government interference has the opposite effect.  For example, PAX ROMANA vs POX OBAMA.  In conclusion — Rome knew how to create wealth. And, despite the fact that Roman soldiers had little qualms about inflicting pain, I would also argue they showed more compassion during their crucifixions than the EPA does during theirs.

  • Jerry Wilson

    No, but they’ll give you or her a sex change operation.

  • Stan

    I don’t see Ann Curry giving any of her money away. She would squeal like a stuck pig if she had to pay her fair share.

  • ThePaganTemple

     Well, Rome went into barbaric, backward countries and built prosperous societies while respecting, for the most part, the native cultures and traditions. Obama has taken control of a prosperous society and seems determined to turn it into a barbaric, backward country, while showing no respect for our own culture and traditions. See the difference?

     An old friend of my father’s was an old country fellow, several years departed now.  Back in the ’70s when the ERA was being pushed, he fumed:  “EQUAL RIGHTS?  What are they talking about?  They already control 2/3 of the money and 100% of the [vagina]!”

  • Adjoran

    Coincidentally, that’s her IQ score, too!

  • Adjoran

    Forget her money – it isn’t FAIR that most really dumb and envious people don’t get to spew their inadequacy on national television.  How is it FAIR that Al Roker gets to do the weather all the time? – the rest of us get rained on, too!

    I’d have left Al out of it if he had done the right thing and slapped her out of her seat when she said that.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    No one is stopping Ann from giving her money to those who need it.

    That’s one of the things I never understood about those women who became Feminists: they had the power where it really mattered, and we males got the sharia end of the stick [and died].  Now, they’ve given it all up and become like us, and what has it gotten them?  They’re finding out the hard way that you can’t ‘have it all’, but like petulant and spoiled children they keep demanding that it all be granted to them.

    You’re channeling Mr. Breitbart, I see.

    Or stabbed her in the eye with a pencil [there!…beat you Adobe!].

     Put simply, Pox Obama is the antithesis of Pax Romana (to say nothing of the legendary Pax Americana!)
