On Fairness

“I’m not in favour of fairness. I’m in favour of freedom. And freedom is not fairness. Fairness means that somebody has to decide what’s fair.” - Milton Freidman

When is the next Milton Friedman going to emerge? Some might say Sowell or Stossel-stache but they are good debaters, Milton was a master debater (ABSOLUTELY NO PUN INTENDED). We need a cross between the intellect of Thomas Sowell and the communication and debating skills of Dinesh D’souza. John Bolton is my favorite guy right now…he killed it on Maher.
