Default Don't know how true this story is but its interesting!

As the late Adrian Rogers said, "you cannot multiply wealth by
dividing it."
This man is truly a genius!

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.

Remember, there is a mid-term election in 2010!

I heard this story as well. It would be hard to believe since academia is nearly entirely a mill for socialistic liberal thought. One does nto need to be a professor to see the more the gov takes over the less people try. I manage a restaurant because I cannot find a job in my field. The new minimum wage increase basically brought up lousy workers with no motivation to the same level as those who were working hard and earned raises. Now these workers do nto care show up, much less work when they are there because the poor workers got a huge raise courtesy of the gov while they got diddly. Thanks Obama your stimulation has driven the cost of basic goods so high I care barely provide for my family.
