Uh-oh. The Fake Fairness Fairy is on the loose again.

And that smell? That’s not pixie dust. 

Obama wants you to know that your next promotion, the car you own, your house, your kids, you don’t deserve any of it. Someone else is mostly responsible for it.

“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own,” Senate candidate and fake Indian, Elizabeth Warren explained to us months ago. “You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory.”

Warren- and Obama- explain that in return for not worrying about “marauding bands” taking everything we have, we should just allow a marauding government to take what they will, while we lay still and Think-of-England.

Apparently Warren isn’t familiar with the 2nd Amendment, which has always been a most effective way of preventing marauders, public, private, quasi-governmental and federally governmental, from plundering our private property.

Her own state, Massachusetts, provided a great example in 1775 at the Battles of Lexington and Concord of the 2nd Amendment in action.

Perhaps as one of the other great Law Givers and Professors in this country, Warren ought to borrow a history book or two from Sarah Palin.

And actually read them.       

Oh, and, never mind that the factory owner Warren and Obama take for granted already pays taxes for all those services Warren lists- just like the rest of us do. In fact, the factory owner probably pays more in taxes, plus pays for infrastructure improvements required under local zoning rules, improvements that likely make the locality more attractive economically.

But, who cares about facts when you can whip out the Fake Fairness Fairy.

More and more, the Democrats have been turning out the Fake Fairness Fairy.

War on Women? The Fake Fairness Fairy.
