Just because…. Can Socialism work?

An economics professor at a local University made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that 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 the socialism principles”.. 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 Rands – 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.
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.

The Truth!!!! Eventually!!!

Two female friends are catching up:
– So, how was your evening last night?
– A disaster! After getting home, my dear beloved hubby wolfed down in 4 minutes, the dinner that took me all afternoon to prepare, “granted” me 3 minutes of passionate love before rolling over and falling asleep 2 minutes later.  And you?
– Oh, mine was incredible. My hubby was waiting for me to get back home from work. He took me out for a very romantic dinner. We then walked back home, under an amazing starry sky, along the canal, for a good two hours. Once home, he lit up all the candles we had and our foreplay lasted for an hour. We then made love for another hour and then we chatted until late. It was wonderful…
  MEN –
Meanwhile, at the pub, the husbands are “networking”…:
– So, how was your evening last night?
– Great! When I came home, the food was ready. I ate, we shagged and I fell asleep. You?

– A nightmare! I came home earlier to fix the kitchen shelf. When I switched on the power drill, the fuse went out. The whole house went into darkness.
Couldn’t find the bloody fuse-box, so when my better half arrived, I took her out.
It was the only thing to do to avoid getting an earful… Dinner was so expensive that I couldn’t afford the taxi back home, so we had to walk home. Once there, the house was still in the dark, obviously, so I had to light all these darned candles to avoid knocking everything down. I was so wound up that it took me an hour to get a hard on, and another one to come. In the end, I was so p!ssed off that it took me ages to fall asleep, while she kept yapping on and on about heck knows what!

Sometimes the truth is better left alone!

Once there was a couple in their mid forties walking through a bush path
and they came across a patch of Mushroom. Husband insisted it was the non-
poisonous one while the wife was adamant this was the lethal stuff.

Husband carried on to pick the mushroom and consoled the wife: “What we
will do is we will cook the stuff and feed it to the dog if the dog dies
then we throw it away but if the dog is ok then we will also eat it. They
got home and fed the mushroom, after cooking it to the dog. It was the
happiest dog in the village for a full four hours.

They then proceeded to eat the mushroom themselves. Just as they finished,
their son run into the room and announced in a hurry the death of the dog
and he ran out. The two parents looked at each other and tears rolled down
their cheeks, the husband then announced:

“My wife I should have listened to you, anyway seeing we are going to die I
need to rest in peace and make sure I have been honest with you.

You see that lady from next door has been my part time since we moved in
and we meet in the garden every Sunday, when your sister came for x-mas and
you had too much wine and passed out I slept with her too, your mother too
but only once last year on new year’s eve.”

With tears in her eyes the wife says, “Its ok my darling that was all
weaknesses of the flesh I have forgiven you, but you must listen to me too.
Each time I go to the butchery I always bring a lot of meat, well it¢s
because our second son is the butcher’s child. As much as you have slept
with the lady next door I also sleep with the husband on Saturday evenings
when you are out with the boys, and lastly since we got married 20 years
ago I have never had an orgasm from you.

Both had mixed emotions hatred, regret but their consolation was they were
dying without any secrets so the tears flowed as thy awaited their

Their son then run into the room again and looked at the parents weeping he
then commented: “My God!!, I didn’t realize the two of you loved the dog
that much, anyway the guy whose car ran over the dog says he can buy us
another one!!!!!!!!!!!”
