    Default Lesson on 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.

    Yes it is. However, he told them that no one would get an A and no one would fail. Yet, they all failed. Sounds like he lied.

    And so does that piece of information change the great explanation of what socialism is? And if he lied, I guess he's been studying BO's lessons.

    And so the lesson was learned!!

    Socialism is, ultimately, a lie.
    Sort of like increasing spending by "biblical" proportions, then claiming that no one will pay extra?

    If I was teaching that lesson, which is an excellent one, I wouldn't say anything about what the grades would be at the end. His delivery is flawed. Hell, I will print it and save it if I ever get to teach economics someday. I have a feeling they wouldn't want me anywhere near high school seniors as I would corrupt them terribly
