Rules for thee and not for me

Talk to a liberal long enough and you're bound to hear some diatribe about White Collar Crime!

Fine. It's a problem.

It might well be that my experience is unrepresentative. But I can't tell you how many times I've heard gripes about white collar crime from people who wouldn't hesitate to cheat on their taxes and insurance claims. Or from politicians who don't play by the rules on campaign finance.

And I don't ever recall the day that people feared walking down the street because someone, say, looted an S&L.

And how many of us pay lower prices because of illegal aliens? That's right - employing them is white collar crime. Good grief, I never see anyone sweating outside a health club nowadays unless he's Hispanic - who would do the work in this culture if they left?

Bottom line - be careful what you ask for.
