"Water is a great equalizer," Poslosky said before the two launched onto the glassy bay. "Once you are in a kayak and paddling, no one knows you are in a wheelchair, no one knows someone can't see. Everyone is equal."
Here is an example of the blind leading the blind down the road of equality and egalitarianism -- with the ultimate goal of equal suffering, equal poverty, etc.

I feel sorry for you, "Champion Equality" of San Jose, CA. Nobody chooses to have to use a wheelchair or to be blind for the rest of their lives. Kudos to these human beings for being active adults in spite of what life has randomly foisted on them. Have you ever been crippled or blinded? Ever imagined the frustration and challenges? It's how you play the cards that you are dealt that really matters.
And then there's you, "Champion Equality," our smug and obnoxious commentator. Do you feel clever with your anonymous attempt at satire? So easy to insult people from behind a computer screen, huh? Based on your self-righteous and oh-so-silly comment, it appears that you are an example of someone who chooses to be thoughtless and mean--and for what purpose? Please, don't drag us down to your level. It's unbecoming, etc.
