A Mickey Mouse Riddle for You!

Suppose you regularly go to a theme park, but you never see any
patrons with unpreferred demographics. Not a one!

But you've paid a thirty-five dollar admission rate for yourself
as an adult. Did you pay the rate associated with people possessing
preferred demographics or unpreferred demographics?

Scroll down for the answer.

Keep scrolling.

You paid the rate associated with those possessing unpreferred

The theme park which is subject to the law regarding equal
accommodation will set its admission rate at a level at which
it will not have a problem with dealing with people possessing
unpreferred demographics. This pricing policy is based on the
mere possibility of such an eventuality actualizing itself EVEN
IF NOT A SINGLE PERSON with unpreferred demographics offers to
pay the quoted admission rate! But if such a person comes with
$35 in hand, he will be welcomed, no problem!

What if the theme park chooses to set the admission rate at a level
associated with persons possessing preferred demographics, say $15
for an adult? Then the theme park operator can expect to have long
lines of people with unpreferred demographics at its admissions

This same reasoning applies to housing units. If "The Don" has
a condo apartment to sell, and it is priced at $5,000,000, is this
the price associated with preferred demographics or unpreferred
demographics? Take my word for it, if "The Don" gets $5,000,000
for his offering, he will not have a problem with a "come one,
come all" housing policy. However, if the "The Don" were to offer
the housing unit at the preferred applicant price of $1,000,000
he just might have a problem dealing with someone who was not made
in the image and likeness of "The Don."

The same applies to hotel rooms, to medical services, TO EVERYTHING!

Well there is more. While selling prices are going up, wages are
going DOWN, and people are getting torn down the middle.

The multipart treatise on the downward wage equalizing effects
of equal employment opportunity is now available on the World
Wide Web. See url:

"Government enforced wage equalization will work only in the
downward direction" - despite any initial appearance to the
contrary! And believe it or not, the least preferred job
candidate doesn't even have to be awarded a job for many
phenomena to take place!
