    COMMUNISM:
    You have two cows. The government takes both of them and gives you part of the milk.

    SOCIALISM:
    You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

    LIBERALISM:
    You have three cows. You buy one bull and force him to work overtime to accommodate three cows.

    CAPITALISM:
    You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

    NEOCAPITALISM:
    You have two cows. You sell them both, keep the bull, and later wonder what happened.

    FASCISM:
    You have two cows. The government takes both cows and sells you the milk.

    NAZISM:
    You have two cows. The government takes both your cows, then shoots you.

    BUREAUCRACY:
    You have two cows. The government takes both of them, shoots one, milks the other, then pours the milk down the drain.

    DEMOCRACY:
    You and everyone else has two cows. A vote is taken, and whatever the majority decides to do, you must do, which is often a lot of bull shit.

    I couldn't help noticing you left ANARCHIST out of Civics 101???

    Are you afraid of giving the herbivores a vote?

    What your plans are for all the damn meat eaters?

    How about some Upper Division Civics?

    Anarchy has never stood the test of time. The others are movements, not legitimate governing bodies. But I did hope someone would add the Tea Party to the list. What would they do with two cows and one bull?

    I'm pretty sure Sarah would get the bull.

    'Don't like to think about what might happen to that herbivore.

    From an airplane, they might resemble caribu. Uh oh. There goes the food supply unless the bull isn't picky.

    Obamanomics: You have two cows. The government institutes extensive regulations to "protect the cows". The cost of feeding and housing the cows far exceeds any economic value. You sell the cows at a loss to the guy who has 200 cows. The guy with 200 cows decides he can't keep them because of the high cost. He threatens to file bankruptcy and gets a government bailout, which entails a bureaucrat telling him how to run his cow business. The first thing the bureaucrat does is put the cows out to pasture and other things that violate the rules, but he gets a waiver.
