The world as we know it

Green socialism and the carbon tax

Know I’ve posted this before but with rebuilding my website it’s going up again.

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 Green socialism would work, 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 Green’s plan. All grades would be averaged, and everyone would receive the same grade – so no one would have to fail, but no one would be able to receive an A.”

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 far less. The second test average was a D. No one was happy.

When the 3rd test finally rolled around, the average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased – but bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would agree to study for the benefit of anyone or everyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor explained to them that socialism would also ultimately fail for exactly the same reason – because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when someone (government) takes the reward away, no one will try or care enough to strive to succeed.

Couldn’t be any simpler than that.

Remember, there IS a test coming up. It’s called the Carbon Tax.

To paraphrase Thomas Sowell:  Socialism has a record of failure that is so obvious only a Green could miss it.

The New Rich

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,

If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz

The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy

Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
.......
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay

The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
