Opinion: Hypocrisy in the springtime

0

As you may know, President Barack Obama is once again leading from behind and is reaching for the same tired arguments of the past in hopes of Democrats gaining ground in the upcoming midterm elections. His latest dime-store strategy: The pay gap between men and women. Well, according to an Associated Press story, an analysis conducted by the conservative American Enterprise Institute, found Obama’s female aides were paid 88 cents for every dollar paid to men, about $65,000 to $73,729 annually. But here’s the really wonderful display of hypocrisy: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney argued the comparison is based on aggregate wages that include the lowest salaries at the White House, adding, “Which may or may not be – depending on the institution – filled by more women than men.” OK, so let’s get this straight: It’s fine for government to use this excuse, but in the private sector, something untoward is taking place. Ah, yes, there is nothing quite like liberal hypocrisy in the springtime.

To those who are in line with us for the annual fleecing today, misery loves company, we suppose. Before we blink, Tax Liberation Day (not a real holiday) will be somewhere around Thanksgiving. Once and for all, reduce spending, cut government bloat and let’s have some meaningful leadership!

It’s alive! The Grand Park web site, that is. Finally up and running, it’s where you can find out all you need to know about facilities, the sports played there and tournaments and events. There’s even a fan guide. Take a look at www.grandpark.org.

The next meeting of WeCAN, or the Westfield Community Association Network, will be April 29 at the City Services Center. This is your neighborhood’s chance to have a direct link to Mayor Andy Cook and other city representatives. WeCAN limits participation to two persons per neighborhood. It’s a wonderful initiative. For more information, visit www.westfield.in.gov.

There’s nothing quite like a little surprise in calculus class. It’s not what you’re thinking, though. Recently, Stephen “Pete” Freeman, the son of Eric and Beth Freeman, was surprised in his Noblesville High School class with the news he is the Hamilton County recipient for the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. He was cited for academic achievement and community volunteerism. Freeman will receive a four-year, full-tuition scholarship at any accredited public or private college or university in Indiana. He is favoring Notre Dame at the moment. Congratulate him and wish him luck. We certainly do.

Who doesn’t love a parade? No one in Carmel that we know of, that’s for sure. And so, in a nod to soccer’s burgeoning rise here with the founding of Indy Eleven (if not to its owner, Ersal Ozdemir, Carmel resident and regional developer), the whole team has been named grand marshal of the CarmelFest 2014 parade on July 4. It’s going to be something else. Kudos to the CarmelFest 2014 committee on the choice. Current in Carmel, you might know, is a leading sponsor of the festival, the greatest in Indiana (period!).
