A simple lesson on socialism | Napa Valley Register.

Dear editor, A great example of how socialism dooms us all:

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before, but had, one time, failed an entire class. That class had collectively agreed that socialism worked and that under its control, no one would be poor and no one would be rich. The system was a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, in this class we will have an experiment on socialism. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same collective grade … so no one person will fail and no one person will 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. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who previously studied little had studied even less and the ones who previously studied hard decided they wanted a free ride, too, so they studied little. The second test’s class average was a D! No one was happy.

When the third test rolled around, the class average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name calling all resulted in ill feelings, and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed the class, 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.”

My liberal-leaning friends, it doesn’t get any simpler than that.

Not sure if this was a true story, but such is the truth of socialism.

Can you keep even a simple story straight? You need to count to ten, before you start posting.

The story about story about the credit card was in two parts. With me so far? 1st part pick up the case of computer paper for him, with his card. Notice here, his card for his stuff. Got it so far? You seem to get lost easy. 2nd part, accidentally, my wife bought her stuff with his card. Notice it was an accident. It was an unwanted accident, that we didn’t want to happen. It wouldn’t of happened if the clerk did her job right. Link
