“Distribution of Wealth” Explained…

Posted: February 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

This item was a forwarded email my friend Katie shared.. I am sharing it here because it is one of the most perfect ways to explain why distribution of wealth (and some my liberal “ideals”) are wrong. Enjoy… and please take time to educate a liberal today! Thank you!

 Subject: Father / Daughter Talk

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

 She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.

The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no 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 she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, “How is your friend Audrey doing?”

She replied, “Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She’s always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn’t even show up for classes because she’s too hung over.”

Her wise father asked his daughter, “Why don’t you go to the Dean’s office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.”

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father’s suggestion, angrily fired back, “That’s a crazy idea, and how would that be fair! I’ve worked really hard for my grades! I’ve invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!”

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, “Welcome to the conservative side of the fence.”

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

  • If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
    • If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
  • If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
    • If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
  • If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    • A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
  • If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    • Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.
  • If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
    • A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.  (Unless it’s a foreign religion, of course!)
  • If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    • A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.
  • If a conservative reads this, he’ll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
    • A liberal will delete it because he’s “offended.”

Well, I forwarded it to you

    That one is soooo good. If only they could share with every college person in America, we’d do much to wipe out Socialism.

    College students can relate to the “bust your butt” and get good grades idea. Especially, when they can see those who party it up, barely passing. They can relate to how unfair it would be to redistribute the grade point average, but as soon as they get out, redistributing the wealth seems “great”.

    Hmmm, did you catch Obama telling a group of youth that they should follow the Egyptian youth rebellion? Actually, it sent chills down my spine. Almost like Bill Ayers was controlling the teleprompter….

      I did not catch that latest obamaism.. good grief can he be much more of a moron?? what was the reaction of the kids?

      Glad you liked this one.. and if only this was the ONE thing kids could be taught.. what a different world.

      Most people only react to what affects them directly.. and if they can not make that connection then they fall into the “make me feel good” crap, with out realizing there is a cost!
