    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat and had grown to be in strong favor for the distribution of all wealth in America.

    She felt deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch
    conservative which he expressed openly.

    One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his
    opposition to higher taxes on the rich and more welfare programs. In the middle of her heart-felt diatribe based upon the lectures she had from her far left professors at her school, he stopped her and asked her point blank how she was doing in school.

    She answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain. That she had to study all the time, never had time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying. That she was taking a more difficult curriculum.

    Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Mary doing?"

    Shereplied, "Mary is barely getting by", she continued, "all she has is barely a 2.0 GPA" adding, "and all she takes are easy classes and she never studies."

    But to explain further she continued emotionally, "But Mary is so very popular on campus, college for her is a blast, she goes to all the parties all the time and very often doesn't even show up for classes because she is too hung over."

    Her father then asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your 4.0 GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0." He continued, "That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair equal distribution of GPA."

    The daughter visibly shocked by the father's suggestion angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I worked really hard for mine, I did without and Mary has done little or nothing, she played while I worked real hard!"

    The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

    I wouldn't know how they are grading in College. I suspect that one's grades are solely based on how well the students can parrot back to the leftist professor's opinions and ideations.

    Now that was just too silly!!!! There are plenty of republicans that had gone to college and are VERY smart intelligent people. They EARNED their way, and in work are still working hard to be what they are today, not to mention the figures on their PAY, 3 digits.

    I do believe, Moi, correct me if I am wrong, but your Republican?? and she has EARNED her way, and lives in a beautiful home, a great job, and has the degree's in her success to show it. She didn't just kick back and enjoy, she earned it. And Jim, well, we all know where he stands, and he too has put himself through school and also has the proof, with a high IQ, which I tend to let him know that he is smart, hehe, but he does.

    Just 2 examples of people I know for fact have earned their way!

    "and she has EARNED her way, and lives in a beautiful home, a great job, and has the degree's in her success to show it."

    So much for her pulic pronouncements for not running in '04

    "She didn't just kick back and enjoy, she earned it. And Jim, well, we all know where he stands, and he too has put himself through school and also has the proof, with a high IQ, which I tend to let him know that he is smart, hehe, but he does."

    No Hillary didn't just kick-back, she earned it the hard way. In the beds of her professors.

    Hillary wrote a term paper postive to the American conservative movement. She dedicated it to her parents, “who have always taught me to be an individual.” She was a Goldwater supporter in 1964 and had “strong anti-Communist views,” she says. She also got deeply involved in the United Methodist Church, which “opened my eyes and heart to the needs of others…” Her conservative views persisted, however, into the time that she entered Wellesley College in 1965, where she served as president of the college’s Young Republicans during her freshman year. However, she says that she began having more doubts about the war against communism in Vietnam-doubts fed by a Methodist magazine she was receiving at college, as well as reports in the New York Times. Later she became the socialist liberal we see today.

    This woman uses whatever is necessary to get what and where she wants.
