Stupid political crap your friends post on facebook. - Page 153

Too bad it didn't cite the tally for murders involving all firearms (8,583).

Still, I'm going to support hammer control. 496 is way too many. That's like 10 a week. Its gotten out of hand.

I chuckled. I don't think illegal aliens get free health insurance thought. Don't the hospitals have to eat that? Correction: don't the hospitals have to pass that on to paying customers? Correction: don't . . . .

Statistics show only 323 people were killed with rifles. That's just 2.5 percent of all weapon-related murders."

The others were murdered using only the killer's mind.

I wish there was a way to filter people's posts so that you could block just their political posts. There's a friend I would like to keep in touch with but he has gone completely off the chain ever since people started suggesting gun control and is posting the most repetitive gun rights memes and news stories at a clip of around 15-20 per day.

Well, this guy is as relentless, but he's on the other side. And I'm willing to bet he has maybe 3 friends who are pro-gun control so it's all just preaching to the choir.

I posted this on my facebook. Does it qualify for this thread?

CLASSROOM SOCIALISM


Is this man truly a genius?
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 new 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.

Human nature will always cause socialism's style of government to fail because the world has producers and non-producers (makers and takers).

It 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.

OY - why do people with the right answer have to use the wrong logic to defend it?

Those things usually end with "and that man was Ronald Reagan"
