Now We're All Equal


And why not? Is it fair to have states with more population than others?

It would make the House of Representatives a whole lot more interesting.

LL - And counties, counties need to be equal too. If we can use the tax code to distribute income and bus children all over hell's half acre to make our schools equally shitty, we can force residents to relocate in order to achieve county population equality.

It's only fair.

I'm all for it. Let's do this. We need an empress of Fairness (Ms Glompers [from Kurt Vonnegut]) running a new federal agency who will see that no one violates the code of fairness.

The problem with this scheme is that it is not based on the metric system.

Finally, some common sense when it comes to fairness. But why do this half-assed, Sig? If you're in for a penny, you're in for a pound, right? We better start building pipes from the Great Lakes and Pacific Northwest and start pumping water to those newly formed states in most need of water. Can't have wetter states and drier states, now, wouldn't be fair.

And while we're at it, we have to start bulldozing all mansions in addition to shantys in all states. Can't have some folks living in luxury while others live in hovels, wouldn't be fair.

Hell, just bulldoze Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Hollywood, couldn't hurt, since its not fair to have all of that talent and money concentrated in one little Zip Code. Wouldn't be fair. Start busing Madonna and Babs Streisand out to Elko and Chippewa Falls, where they can spread their wings, eh Sig?

Are you with me? It would only make things fair?

OK, I'll go along with this equal outcomes realignment of the states, as long as the state of Phoenix can boot out all the illegals and the residents of Tucson.

Fredd - you've opened the door. Let us all be equal every day in every way. Whether we like it or not.

Let the warm air from southern California be pumped to Upper Michigan and transport the snow from Central New York to Tucson.

Rip up the orange trees in Florida and ship them to Montana and North Dakota.

Grab some of those Louisiana alligators and let them flourish in the forests of Northern Maine.

It's only fair.

Sig: NOW you're getting into the swing of things. 'Let fairness reign: whether you like it or not.'

Sounds like a pretty catchy political slogan for Pochahontas Warren, Jim Webb or Andrew Cuomo. Run with it, folks. Works every time it's tried.
