THIS TEACHER ROCKS! Entire Class Fails when Obama’s Socialism Experiment Fails |

THIS TEACHER ROCKS! Entire Class Fails when Obama’s Socialism Experiment Fails |


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. (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.
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this on Twitter or Facebook?  Neither could I.

The $995 billion Sequester Cut Is Actually a $110 Billion Spending Increase - AgainstCronyCapitalism.org

The $995 billion Sequester Cut Is Actually a $110 Billion Spending Increase - AgainstCronyCapitalism.org: Don’t worry big government folks. We won’t be entering into anything that looks like a period fiscal restraint even if sequestration actually happens. (I still think Congress will weasel out of it.)

Even with the “draconian” (I have heard that word more times in the last week than in the past 5 years) measures Congress is about to take, government will still get larger. There is nothing even approaching a reduction in the Leviathan on the horizon. The beast will just grow slightly, and I mean slightly, slower than it would have without sequestration.

What does the Bible say about anger?

What does the Bible say about anger?


Anger is not always sin. There is a type of anger of which the Bible approves, often called “righteous indignation.” God is angry (Psalm 7:11; Mark 3:5), and believers are commanded to be angry (Ephesians 4:26). Two Greek words in the New Testament are translated as “anger.” One means “passion, energy” and the other means “agitated, boiling.” Biblically, anger is God-given energy intended to help us solve problems. Examples of biblical anger include David’s being upset over hearing Nathan the prophet sharing an injustice (2 Samuel 12) and Jesus’ anger over how some of the Jews had defiled worship at God’s temple in Jerusalem (John 2:13-18). Notice that neither of these examples of anger involved self-defense, but a defense of others or of a principle.

Joblessness Is No. 1 Problem, But No One Seems To Have An Answer - Investors.com

Joblessness Is No. 1 Problem, But No One Seems To Have An Answer - Investors.com: President Obama and his fellow Democrats want more jobs. So do Republicans. Heck, everyone does. Yet job creation is weak.

It's true the economy has generated 5.5 million jobs from its low point. Still, 3.2 million fewer jobs exist now than at the previous high.

The official jobless rate is 7.9%, but it would be 14.4% if it included part-timers who'd like full-time work and discouraged workers who have stopped looking, notes Janet Yellen, vice chairwoman of the Federal Reserve Board.

Scarce jobs are the nation's first, second and third most important economic and social problem.

What's especially disheartening and mystifying is that, until now, job creation was considered an inherent strength of the American economy.

Quotes of Will Rogers

Quotes of Will Rogers: It takes quite a sense of humor for these people to understand us shaking hands with one hand and shooting with the other.

Quotes of Will Rogers

Quotes of Will Rogers: There is nothing that makes a nation or an individual as mad as to have somebody say, “now this is really none of my business but I am just advising you.” If I sleep with a gun under my pillow, I don’t want somebody from across the street to “advise” me that I don’t need it.

Who doesn’t love a happy ending?
Via WaTi:
Former Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge involving more than $750,000 in campaign funds at a dramatic Wednesday hearing during which he faced a federal judge in Washington and admitted guilt.
“I am guilty, your honor,” he said, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.
As part of the plea agreement, Jackson could face a jail sentence of 46 to 57 months, the Tribune reported. But both sides reserved the right to argue for more — or less — jail time, the paper continued. His sentencing hearing is set for this summer.
“I used money I shouldn’t have … for personal reasons,” Jackson said, according to the Tribune. “I acknowledge that.”

Senate Democrats: Obamacare a 'Regulatory Health Coverage No Man's Land'

Senate Democrats: Obamacare a 'Regulatory Health Coverage No Man's Land': Obamacare provides subsidies to those who cannot afford employer-sponsored health insurance. The law, however, defines an “affordable” plan as an individual policy that costs less than 9.5 percent of an employee’s salary. If an employee can insure himself for less than 9.5 percent but cannot afford to insure his family through his employer, he would not be eligible for subsidies, and health care coverage would not be “affordable.”

“We’ve got millions of people- working-class, middle-class people- who are going to be pushed into a regulatory health coverage no man’s land,” Wyden claimed. “They are unable to afford the family coverage through their employer and ineligible for the subsidy that could be used by dependents on the exchange.”

Sen. Nelson blasted HHS for inviting Congress to cut funding for healthcare co-ops, which was eliminated in the year-end fiscal cliff deal, even though applications for new co-ops were already in the works. According to Nelson, HHS officials offered up the program as a sacrificial lamb that Congress could cut out.

Video Alert: COLLECTIVISM – Obama’s Words; How he is Openly Destroying the USA

Video Alert: COLLECTIVISM – Obama’s Words; How he is Openly Destroying the USA: Be sure to see the video. Obama calls for a Marx/Trotsky-style, centrally-controlled, “democratic” collective, much as Mitt Romney described in his secretly videoed, “47%” statements. Obama also portrays in a few chosen words the post-USSR version of global neo-Marxism, an enslaved “capitalism” of state controlled markets, also called corporatism, the core of 20th Century fascism and something now done in Russia, China, increasingly in the European states, and in South America — and now, here.

Google Answers: Why ""EEUU"" and not "EUA" when "USA" is translated from Mexican Spanish?

Google Answers: Why ""EEUU"" and not "EUA" when "USA" is translated from Mexican Spanish?: "Estados Unidos" is abbreviated as "EEUU" (also: EE. UU.) because in Spanish the abbreviation for a plural item doubles the letter of the abbreviation. The same is done, for example, with the abbreviation for "Fuerzas Armadas" (= Armed Forces), which is "FF. AA.", indicating that the abbreviation relates to a plural term. The English language knows this custom too, albeit in a few cases only. For instance, the abbreviation for "page" in singular is "p.", while "pages" in plural are abbreviated as "pp.". Sometimes, however, the abbreviation "EUA" (Estados Unidos de América) for the United States is indeed used in Spanish, but not often.

The Obama administration is winding down its program covering pe - WJHL-TV: News: Weather, and Sports for Johnson City, TN

The Obama administration is winding down its program covering pe - WJHL-TV: News: Weather, and Sports for Johnson City, TN: WASHINGTON, DC -

The Obama administration is quietly winding down one of the earliest programs created by the president's health care overhaul law.

It's a plan that provides stopgap coverage for uninsured people with medical problems who have been turned down by insurers.

Administration officials broke the news to state counterparts in a teleconference on Friday.

They said the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan will stop taking new applications because of funding concerns. The suspension happens immediately in 23 states where the federal government administers the program, but states that run their own plans may have more time, depending on contract arrangements.

The more than 100,000 people already in the program will not lose coverage and will be able to transfer to other insurance once the health care overhaul takes full effect in January.

The Obama Kiss of Death Claims Another Business | Economy | Fox Nation

The Obama Kiss of Death Claims Another Business | Economy | Fox Nation: Remember Ray's Hell Burgers, the burger joint Obama visited a couple of times early in his first term? Dead. Kaput. The latest victims of the Obama Kiss of Death, in which seemingly every business he personally visits - especially those he touts as New Economy success stories - goes bankrupt.
Sometimes this is understandable, as in the case of those green energy losers he keeps picking. But other times it really does seem like a curse. And if he was a Republican, it would already be cemented in popular culture thanks to comedy skits where businesses fold up as soon as Obama walks in the door to order a sandwich. But instead, we'll probably get another four years of "irreverent" comedians telling us there's no way to make fun of Obama.

Activist Post: Retail Apocalypse: Why Are Major Retail Chains All Over America Collapsing?

Activist Post: Retail Apocalypse: Why Are Major Retail Chains All Over America Collapsing?: If the economy is improving, then why are many of the largest retail chains in America closing hundreds of stores? When I was growing up, Sears, J.C. Penney, Best Buy and RadioShack were all considered to be unstoppable retail powerhouses. But now it is being projected that all of them will close hundreds of stores before the end of 2013. Even Wal-Mart is running into problems. A recent internal Wal-Mart memo that was leaked to Bloomberg described February sales as a "total disaster". So why is this happening? Why are major retail chains all over America collapsing? Is the "retail apocalypse" upon us?

Doe v.

Marrero held that that the FBI’s application of Section 2709 required a "compulsory, secret, and unreviewable production of information" in violation of the Fourth Amendment. Moreover, the court held that the "extraordinary scope" of the non-disclosure provision of Section 2709 violated the First Amendment. The court expressed concerns that Section 2709’s lack of clear enforcement mechanisms or any explicit reference to the recipients’ access to counsel would result in the effective coercion of NSL recipients without any judicial process.
