The Tale Of The Socialist College Student

A young college student comes home for a visit and tells her father what is all wrong about America. She feels that the country should be based on the Socialist scale so that everyone will be equal. Her father ignores her excitement and her new found “expert” knowledge.

Instead he says, “How did you do on your finals?” She replies, “I did just great – I got an “A” in all subjects.”

Her father proudly says, “That is just great – you must have worked hard, studied hard, and prepared for your test.”

“Oh, I did she said. I stayed up until all hours and crammed until I knew everything on the test. I didn’t go anywhere, skipped meals and kept my head in my books!”

“I am so proud of you daughter; but how did your roommate do?”

“Ah, she didn’t do so well.” The father then says, “Why don’t you talk to the dean and tell him that you feel bad for your roommate; and you would like to have your two grades averaged together so that you can share your grade to help pull up hers to passing?”

“What…? She replied with an exaggerated tone.

“I should give her part of my hard earned grades when she sat on her rump, watched TV, went to parties, didn’t crack open and book and I AM TO SHARE WITH HER?”

“NO WAY. I worked for my grades and she did nothing.”

Her father patted her on the back and replied, “Welcome to the world of capitalism, sweetheart!”
