Equality of Opportunity, Equality of Outcome, Equality of Nothing

| Sunday, January 22, 2012
In my left hand is a very valuable thing, it's a card, much like the Monopoly "get out of jail free" card, except it's a "have a job all your life" card. Get this card and you will never be unemployed unless you quit your job. Come rain or recession, you will have work.

In my right hand is a six billion sided die. It is a fair die. You all have your number, so when I roll it, you know who comes out on top. The winner gets the card.

Good luck, everyone.


And there we go, 67923 has won! Congratulations!

Quit whining, the rest of you. There was equality of opportunity.

You're quite wrong;
nothing to do with luck, all it takes to make it in this world is hard work and the right attitude - YEHAAA!!!

Then conquer we must,
When our cause it is just,
And this be our motto:
"In God is our trust!"

Why would anyone want work? Don't you rather want the option to engage in whatever activity you want - irrespective of whether somebody wants to pay you money for doing so?

Because that's numbers 1 - 100.000 on this dice ;)

And a six-shooter?

It's been my experience that work, as unpleasant as it is, is necessary to enjoy not working. I'm also trying to suggest the reward is income without an obvious handout.
