    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth 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.

    So, I should be ok with working my ass off, just to have the government take a huge chunk of it and give it to someone who does NOT have to work for it?

    If that's what the Tea Party is selling, then I'm buying.

    OK, elementary teachers....try this IF you dare:

    For one week try Socialism in the classroom. Tell the kids up front that everybody is going to be made equal. Each day all grades will be added up, divided by the number in the class and everybody will get the same grade.

    The first day things will be completely normal.

    Some kids will do very well; some will do well; some will do not-so-well; some will do badly.

    The second morning read off who scored what and tell each how much of their grade they lost to equalize the others and congratulate those who did badly on how much their grade was improved.

    The results are not always the same.

    Most typical is that, by Friday, nobody's putting any effort into anything.

    Usually the poor performers are attacking those who used to do better, sometimes physically, trying to convince them to produce!

    Now and then it happens the other way but that must be halted immediately because it inevitably results in lawsuits by parents. The parents of the poor performers.

    Go ahead, I dare you!

    Now, if that doesn't irrefutably prove that Sarah G(angrenous) is one of the more certified Obamarrhoidal Idiots in America, I really don't know what will.

    I've got a better one:

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

    Too difficult for Republicans to understand. They prefer Teabirther Bull Shit. Sad.

    What, exactly, do you dispute in these sentences? Did you read them or just knee-jerk your response? Methinks the latter.
