A Lesson on Socialism

An economics professor said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked - and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer for all, for society. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

He said that 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 was given a B. The students who studied hard were upset, and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who hadn't studied much for the first test had studied even less, and the ones who studied hard weren't motivated to study hard again, and they 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, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed .... and the professor told them that the socialism they wanted would ultimately fail, as they had, because the reward of success normally goes to those that work harder, but when government takes the reward away; few will try so no one will succeed.

Don't tell that to those who voted for the Teleprompter. He is the Messiah. If he thinks it will work, it must be true, right?? The reason Yomama doesn't understand Capitalism is because he's never had a real job. Think about it: He's been a Community Organizer and in Government all his life, so he's never had to succeed at anything. What is the penalty for failure in Government? Nothing. He wouldn't understand the Private sector cause he's never been in it.

Another thing Yomama always talks about is "working together" for this or "working together" for that...Let's "work together". How about this. Lower TAXES, SHUT UP and get Government the Hell out of the Way.

Kids college educated
Thanks to 40 years of dimwit liberals in the professor's chair, that doesn't surprise me as much as it used to.

I look at the kids coming out today (I interview them) and they may have some skills I want (like accounting) but they are LOST on understanding results=reward!

I seem to remember that our prior President worked in the "private sector" and bankrupted the companies. Then he went on to bankrupt us. Let's not pre-judge anyone and forget the past just because we have someone new to criticize. We have to hope that our present gov't makes the right decisions.

Forget the past,how about how our country boomed because of capitolism. Let's not forget that 8billion in debt is hardley compareable to 8 trillion. BTW, I thought our president is suppose to look forward instead of hiding behind a previous administration faults. Blaming the past for your inadequacies shows a lack of integrity and irresponsibility in your decisions. Put that in your hash pipe and smoke it liberal :D

Izema- You are a fool. This is about Capitalism vs. Socialism. How many Capitalist Presidents have we had in this Country's history that made us the most prosperous nation in the history of the planet? Answer: All of them until now. Just continue to be a sheep and follow the messiah. After all, he reads really well from the teleprompter.

Will it still work? With unregulated, free capitalism .... why would anyone, with a new idea, produce anything in the USA anymore? With communist China waiting with open arms?

Intellectual production? My own, very little, consulting business I had .... what materials could not be easily trasmitted electronically, FedEx or UPS would rocket to India. I could have got away with only one employee if I choose to outsource to India.

I voted for President Bush twice, but his standing with the US Chamber of Commerce concerning outsourcing .... I don't understand.

I look at all the young people here in NJ, forgetting about what they want to really do in life, and instead trying to find a way to become a police officer or fireman, etc. To have the state government .... the party .... take care of them all their lives, thats a turn toward some kind of dictactorship.

I'm really worried about our kids ... our grandkids. Hope I'm wrong.

How about letting me make my own decisions. Cut my taxes(income, business,SS, medicare etc...)stop telling me to whom I can pay what, and I will put my capital to work investing in new equipment, tech, etc... which will help create jobs, and contribute to my success and the success of our economy.
