A man wakes up in the middle of nowhere. He has no money, he doesn’t know where he is and there is absolutely nothing around him, except for a small diner. The man walks towards the diner, where a sign reads “eat all you want, your grandchildren will pay”.
The man walks in, eats like there is no tomorrow and, when he is done, a waitress walks up to him and gives him the bill. “Wait, I read the rules carefully.” says the man.”I know,” replies the waitress “this is your grandfather’s bill.”
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 will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).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. As the tests proceeded, 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. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED 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. (Please pass this on) These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
Did we go from a nation that could steel its spine for the greater good to a nation of complete pussies? we have taken a nation forged by hard men and women and made it into a latte-sipping, metrosexualized place where the slightest offencive thing is grounds for a lawsuit. Why is it that so many people idolize cops and soldiers who do whatever it takes to get the job done on the big screen and then endlessly complain about the men who do that dirty, tough and chaotic work in the real world?
And How did our political discussions and much of our culture become dominated by whichever pathetic wimps are fastest to cry out that they’re offended or that someone else is being insensitive? Whatever happened to manning up Whatever happened to taking pride in supporting yourself and your family? Whatever happened to the nation that rewards doers, not the people who are most creative about coming up with new ways to claim life is unfair? If America’s future is going to be as bright as its past, we need a lot more tough people who can solve their own problems and a lot fewer wimpy, whining children masquerading as adults.
