An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once 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 would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would 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 little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

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

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. All failed, to their great surprise, 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.

Could not be any simpler than that.

This column, Dismantling America, appeared in today's Abilene Reporter News. I think every American ought to read it!

The town hall meetings in August uncovered a nasty little secret in Washington: Members of Congress don't actually read their bills!! If you're tired of politicians sticking you with the consequences of bills they haven't read, sign the National Read the Bill Petition.

Sen. Jim Bunning (Ky) is preparing legislation that will require bills to be scored by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and posted online at least 72 hours before they can be considered by the Senate or any Senate committee. This will leave Members of Congress with no excuse for failing to read their bills and it will give the public time to express their views before legislation is passed.

Here is an excerpt from a personal letter from Mother Teresa to Judie Brown of ALL (American Life League) from May 1992 on the topic of world peace and abortion:

I pray that your book will open many hearts to God. May those who read it be moved to let God do great things in their lives and to work and pray that the killing of innocent children by abortion -- which is the greatest threat to world peace -- be stopped completely and forever, for through abortion mothers destroy the image and likeness of God.
-God Bless You, Mother Teresa

God returns to the Capitol Visitors Center

When the $621 million Capitol Visitors Center opened last year, somebody was conspicuously absent at the opening ceremony: God.

Virtually all references to the role that faith in God played in the founding and development of the United States had been scrubbed from displays.

The secular fundamentalists who designed the exhibits even mistakenly said that our national motto is "E Pluribus Unum" ("Out of Many, One") and engraved it on stone, while the actual motto, "In God We Trust," was nowhere to be found in the 580,000 square feet of the CVC.
While there was plenty of room for mentions of Earth Day, AIDS rallies and casinos, there apparently was no room for God.

But thanks to Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), the Congressional Prayer Caucus, and The American Family Association the oversight has been corrected and visitors to the center now see "In God We Trust" engraved over the entrance.

Send Congress a Pink Slip

What Congress seems to care most about is getting reelected. Sometimes it seems like they don't even listen to us, the people. They march along in step with their party line regardless of what we, the people, say we want.

Janet Folger Porter, of Faith2Action, came up with the idea of letting Congress know we're following what they're doing and are tired of the out-of-control spending and their insistence of enacting legislation that we don't want.

Check it out and SEND A PINK SLIP to every member of Congress NOW!
