Carol Platt Liebau : A Plea for Fairness

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. With no new ideas to address poverty in the wake of the pandemic, left wing politicians are once again calling for tax increases, claiming it’s a matter of “fairness.”

Where were these “pro-fairness” legislators last year, when it was fine to shop at Costco or Wal-Mart, but small businesses were shuttered.

And what about the injustice to our children? Many students haven’t been inside a classroom for almost a year. It’s estimated that existing achievement gaps will be worsened by 15-20 percent because of school shutdowns.

It’s ironic that under the guise of “fairness,” politicians would seek to advance measures that will only expand government still further.

Truly, that’s not fair.

Owen Strachan: Let’s Treat All Women With Respect


Here are the rules today: you must be pro-woman at all times—unless, that is, the woman you’re engaging is conservative or religious.

We saw an example of this cultural double-standard at this past weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. This dinner has a history of friendly banter. But comedian Michelle Wolf crossed the line. Even as she joked about abortion, she attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, making fun of her looks, and repeatedly called her a liar.

Whatever our political differences, let’s be clear: this kind of public abuse is reprehensible. It’s especially shocking because supposedly we’re in a tolerant age that prizes diversity.

In practice, it seems, some people deserve respect, fairness and kindness.

And some don’t.

This is the strangest of ages. When a woman is conservative or religious, you can say whatever you want.

I have a better idea: Let’s treat all women with respect.
