I found this on another sight.



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 was for distribution of all wealth. She felt deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican which she 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."

She replied, "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 her friend who only had 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 fathers 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."

And then the daughter (who was really smart) said "But I didn't drag Mary to this country on a slave ship; I don't owe her anything"!

And then the daughter stomped out of the house and drove away in her BMW before her father could brain wash her with any more of that stupid logic.

That worked probably because she grew up listening to the Republican side.
Somebody who grew up listening to the propaganda about redistributing all income to help the less fortunate would protest severely at the comparison of the income and GPA.

So the father called 911 and reported the car stolen. After all, it was his car. You see, his daughter had never worked a day in her life. His daughter had not earned it, nor anything else. She was living in a utopian dreamland.

But, she was about to wake up.

She woke up in jail.

But her mother went and got her out (after giving the father a good cussing) and later they had a good cry and a discussion of how cruel and unfeeling men are at a fancy eatery and then they went shopping.

And redistributed $9582.43, all charged to the mother's visa card; which will teach her father to try and oppress people.

Everyone, that is, except the cruel Republican father and a couple of his white collar croneys.  They had used slave labor to construct a couple of underground bunkers.  The bunkers were airtight and had enough supplies for a couple of capitalist fatcats to live high on the hog for a year.
And so they did...

But eventually the Capitalist fatcats ran out of food, and they were bored of their sheltered life.  So they came out of the shelters and began to wander around the new Earth in their Hummers, which they had fastidiously maintained in peak gas-guzzling condition.  No sooner had they left their bunkers and fired up their engines when they heard the screams and cries of hundreds of voices.  Shrill, grating, fingernails-on-chalkboard voices.  They looked out from behind the tinted windows of their Hummers to see a large crowd of tattered, animalistic looking humans, their clothing gone, wild-eyed looks on their faces.  They were munching vegetables only, their teeth ground down to nubs due to their vegan diet.  They were howling and thrashing about at the exhaust fumes they had smelled from the Hummers.  And leading them was a hideous, brutish looking female - torn and unkempt short blonde hair framing a thuggish face, mouth frozen in a permanent sneer - and all she said, over and over again, was a horrifying chant "It takes a village, it takes a village."

The Evil Yankee Capitalist In Charge stepped out of the gargantuan Hummer, and unholstered a clean, polished, painstakingly maintained 1911 pistol.
The crowd drew back, and the Blond Thugface screeched "CAW! Saturday Night Special!  Junk Gun!  Reasonable Restrictions! CAW CAW!"

And just as the fat cat Capitalist was about fire a round from his trusty 1911, a member of the crazy vegan crowd was able to wrestle the evil weapon from his hands and he broke down in tears and apologized to the vegans saying "alas, the evil gun took over my soul and gave me the evil impulse to protect my life, but now that you've saved me from the EVIL gun, I feel only love and peace toward all of you crazed mutants and desire to do nothing but fornicate with you. I will not try to protect myself, even if you try to take my life. For NO life is worth saving. We are all just animals and no better than the plant life we ingest"...

But just as his 9mm backup was coming-up with the sights aligned on Hillary the Haggard, the person formerly known as Vince Foster's twin brother mysteriously was pushed in the line-of-sight and received the bullet to the back of his head. The pack of vegans ruled it suicide and ate his steaming corpse all the while chanting PETA slogans and condemning beef producers. Meanwhile... the fat cat capitalist escaped in his H2 and headed to the area formerly known as Yellowstone Nat'l Park to drill for oil to fuel his guzzling steed.

While the fatcat was aligning his 500 long drilling rig with the largest pocket of dead crushed dinosaurs, a second group of mutants came streaming out of the treeline.  They were chanting 'Pass the Kyoto Treaty, Pass the Kyoto Treaty!'  It sounded like a million screamin demons to the ears of the Evil Fatcat.

Luckily for the fatcat, one of his passengers, an ar15.com member with a penchant for destruction, had set numerous Claymore mines on the edge of the treeline.  Their tripwires were just beginning to vibrate from the approaching hoards.

Here's another way:
This is a VERY simple way to understand the tax laws. Read on - it does make you think!! Let's put tax cuts in terms everyone can understand. Send this to your liberal friends.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for dinner. The bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this.

The first four men -- the poorest -- would pay nothing; The fifth would pay $1: The sixth would pay $3; The seventh $7; The eighth $12; The
ninth $18. The tenth man -- the richest -- would pay $59.

That's what they decided to do. The ten men ate dinner in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement -- until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

"Since you are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily meal by $20." So now dinner for the ten
men would only cost $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free.
But what about the other six -- the paying customers? How could they divvy up the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his "fair
share?"

The six men realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the
sixth man would end up being *paid* to eat their meal.

So the restaurant owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so the fifth man paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid $5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12, leaving the
tenth man with a bill of $52 instead of his earlier $59. Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat
for free.

But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. "I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth. "But he got $7!" "Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got seven times more than me!" "That's true!"shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night he didn't show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him.

But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important.

They were $52 short!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college instructors, is how the tax system works.

The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction.

Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table anymore.

Author unknown but very wise.

And another:
If you want to be a GOOD Democrat, there are some prerequisites you must have first. Compare the below and see how you rate.


1. You have to believe the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of federal funding.

2. You have to believe that the same teacher who can't teach 4th graders how to read is somehow qualified to teach those same kids about sex.

3. You have to believe that guns, in the hands of law-abiding Americans, are more of a threat than U.S. nuclear weapons technology in the hands of Korean communists.

4. You have to believe that there was no art before Federal funding.

5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical, documented changes in the earth's climate, and more affected by yuppies driving SUVs.

6. You have to believe that gender roles are artificial but being homosexual is natural.

7. You have to be against capital punishment but support abortion on demand.

8. You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity.

9. You have to believe that hunters don't care about nature, but loony activists from Seattle do.

10. You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.

11. You have to believe the military, not corrupt politicians start wars.

12. You have to believe the NRA is bad, because it supports certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good, because it supports certain parts of the Constitution.

13. You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.

14. You have to believe that Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, General Robert E. Lee or Thomas Edison.

15. You have to believe that standardized tests are racist, but racial quotas and set-asides aren't.

16. You have to believe Hillary Clinton is really a lady.

17. You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried, is because the right people haven't been in charge.

18. You have to believe conservatives telling the truth belong in jail, but a liar and sex offender belongs in the White House.

19. You have to believe that homosexual parades displaying drag, transvestites and bestiality should be constitutionally protected and manger scenes at Christmas should be illegal.

20. You have to believe that illegal Democratic party funding by the Chinese is somehow in the best interest of the United States.

~~~~~~~~~~~~ Vote Democratic... It's easier than getting a job.

The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party.  We give out huge entitlements too, like the recent medicare-redistribution of wealth.  We don't really care about illegal immigration either, even though it hurts our economy in the long run. Oh, and we are all for Big Government, you should like that"

My wife was pretty much converted on 9/11.

She was so glad Gore hadn't been elected.

Then again she still has friends who believe Osama wouldn't have attacked if Gore had won.

I posted that on the Darkside several months ago.The consensus was that rich people took more out of the system than anybody else.  In fact, they were the reason the system was in financial trouble.
I realized than that they have extremely different ideas of what rich people do than normal people.
I got banned for suggesting that the tax code unfairly penalized the successful.
