The “progressives” and all branches of President Obama’s administration like to use the word “fair” as a justification for giving more of anything and everything to their political bases (“Men need not apply,” Commentary, Wednesday). This ploy is intended to make their political bases superior to and richer than whatever is left of the general population - especially the male part of it.

As we move toward the 2012 elections, I would urge every male of voting age, irrespective of ideology, skin color, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation, to ask himself one simple question: What is “fair” about this sort of discrimination?
