    Default I don't normally arbitrarily share what arrives in my "In-box" but this is worthy...

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



    Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections in South Africa.



    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.

    Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.

    HN, the masses are hoping the minority will take care of them by passing a law giving all their wealth to them.....

    hehehe If you take all the wealth of the minority lets say its 5 million people earning a average of R10 000 a month (this is just guesswork not a real statistic) and divide it by the population lets say 55 mil everyone will receive R909 a month. That is more than my monthly petrol to get to work...and way below the min salary as instituted by our government.

    Now you have to consider how many are children who cannot work and the unemployment rate, then you will probably half that amount.

    Good post, someone should send it to Julius...

    I fully support Obamas vision:

    I move all gunsite members immediately divide up all ammunition.

    AGreeff, most would share, though I can think of one or two who deliver it one shot at a time
