Equality and Fairness and the US Postal Service

When opening a letter today I noticed that the envelope had the new Equality stamp on it.  It’s one of a quartet of stamps released earlier this year: Freedom, Liberty, Equality and Justice.  It’s a real nice design with a beautiful picture of Old Glory on it.  But given the times we live in, and the regime we are now under,  I just couldn’t help wondering what the stamp’s designer, or more importantly the person or group who commissioned and approved this stamp, meant by the word, equality.  With this word appearing prominently below the flag, I hope they were referring to equal opportunity, as our founding fathers did.  Somehow I can’t help wondering though, that maybe the intent of this beautifully designed postage stamp was to promote quite another meaning of the word, one more in line with our Dear Leader’s view, that of equal outcomes.

If this is true, then maybe we need another stamp to remove all questions of ambiguity.  I even came up with one.  I call it the Fairness stamp.  It has a flag like the one that hung outside the Lake County, Florida Democratic Party headquarters for awhile, with a bust of Obama replacing the 50 stars.  Check out my rendition of it to the left.  With all the nonstop rants using the word fairness today from Obama, and its constant parroting by Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Wasserman-Schultz and the rest of the Progressives, the Fairness stamp seems appropriate to me.  What do you think?

    Just bought these stamps and noticed the “Equality” label as I put it on a letter. I too scratched my head and thought, “which of these things is not like the other?” Freedom, Liberty and Justice are all codified in historical documents from our Founding Fathers. Equality? That’s a Socialist motto and does not belong on our stamps.

    Just noticed the “Equality” flag stamp. Underline tones suggests a socialist America,as the flag is a symbol of the United States. This does not belong on our stamps.

    So you think the concept of “Equality” isn’t in any founding documents? WRONG

    HINT: “All men created equal” has too many words to fit on a stamp nicely. I think “Equality” sums it up about right.

  4. The Founders were talking about equal opportunity, not equal outcome.

    “All men are created equal” does not default to equality. In other words, the quote gives everyone an equal starting point — under the law. Equality is when all elements have the same state of being. You can start off with two equal individuals, but as soon as one differs from the other (commits a serious crime) we can easily see that both are no longer expected to be in an equal state of being. As people follow different paths in life it is to be expected that a state of true equality is impossible.

    back. Given Viagra’s effectiveness and the
    seemingly huge demand for it, critics worried about the potential for abuse.
    Generic Viagra helps men who are sexually stimulated by filling the penis with sufficient blood
    that results in erection.
