Redistribute Everyone Else's Stuff But Mine!

How many of these students are in favor of wealth redistribution, support the so-called Occupy idiots, and/or didn't find anything wrong with Senator/Candidate Obama's answer to Joe the Plumber's question?

Every time I see one of these types of stories I get a kick. The cognitive dissonance must be debilitating for some.

Applying redistribution ideas to grades is such a flimsy dichotomy. It's not remotely a valid argument against progressive taxation or social programs.

I'm sure you believe that because it makes your redistributionist ideas look stupid.

It also gives Mike an opportunity to incorrectly use the word "dichotomy".

Oh, and just to be clear, the grade redistribution idea is so annoying because, just like the affirmative action cookie sales, it's such an effective analog for redistributionist political policies. When you want to obscure the consequences of your ideas there's hardly anything more nettlesome then a good, clarifying example.
