    Default Socialism

    An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before,

    but had once failed an entire class.

    --------------------------------------------

    That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".

    All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.

    The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D!

    No one was happy.

    When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    Could not be any simpler than that.

    I read that a couple weeks ago. Its a pretty good quick lesson in how it works. I still doubt the vast majority of morons will get it. You know, the ones that are to lazy to go to school.

    Yeah, I saw it a while ago also.

    It doesn't matter how true it is, the dedicated morons will just sue for their entitlement, and probably win if statomayor is sitting.

    The moment incentives for achievement are depleted, legislated away or mandated removed, this syndrome becomes the norm. We have already had a full-scale attack on the heart of this country - the businessman who employs our nation - and the effects will be unemployment, economic depression and, in stead of actually receiving more taxation from the productive segment of society as intended, an extreme reduction in the country's vital income will result.

    I'm telling you this from experience. I have been paying 6 figure taxes for decades and I haven't made a single penny for 18 months now - despite working all day, every day. Not only will the country's treasury suffer greatly from this fiscally irresponsible administration but the people that depended upon their jobs will see a continual rise in unemployment as has been the case since the day the Kenyan took office.

    Asking the heart and soul of America (the business owners) to work harder for less is like asking welfare recipients to make due with less. Only difference is the businessman closes shop while the welfare recipients tear down and burn their own cities. Tour Detroit lately?

    Liberal mentality is one of the worst disorders facing us today.

    Put that in your pipe and Snopes it!

    Wait till the "official" revenues come out in early 2010. Its going to be brutal. People think budgets are having problems now, its no where comparable to what its going to be next year. People will eventually get it, it just takes some time and harsh realities.

    A first grader's mentality would just say "Let's just print more money."

    See what I mean?
