The story is quite amusing, though it sounds more like a fictional account than real. The lack of names for the town, community college and professor make the story a bit suspect.
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 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.
While this is probably a fictional account, or as Obama would call it, a composite account, it is in fact exactly what happens when Marxism/Socialism/Communism is attempted. Every time, without fail, this is exactly what happens. Yet strangely enough, no matter how many times those pushing Marxism/Socialism?Communism see it fail, they always insist that the only reason it failed, was that the right people didn’t implement it. It never ever seem to penetrate their skulls, that it doesn’t fail because the right people weren’t in charge, but because the Marxism/Socialism/Communism ideological system is utterly incompatible with human beings. In other words, it doesn’t fail because the right people aren’t in charge, it fails because it cannot succeed regardless of who is in charge.
