Quote of the Day

Why is it that liberals insist that things like the inheritance tax are necessary to level the playing field (so that one person doesn’t start out with some extaordinary advantage, and someone else starts with nothing), but they never talk about levelling the playing field in other areas? Why shouldn’t attractive people be forced to have deforming plastic surgery so that they look like everyone else? What about talents that should be restricted, or perhaps energetic people should be forced to sleep 8 hours a day so they can’t work harder and get ahead of their more-rest-needing counterparts?

Why is it just money that we should be redistributing?
