Free Stuff!

The folks who are getting Free Stuff,
Don’t like the folks who are paying for the Free Stuff,
Because the folks who are paying for the Free Stuff,
Can no longer afford to pay for both the Free Stuff and their own Stuff.

And,
The folks who are paying for the Free Stuff,
Want the Free Stuff to stop.
And the folks who are getting the Free Stuff,
Want even MORE Free Stuff on top of the Free Stuff they’re getting already!

Now….. The people who are forcing people to PAY for the Free Stuff,
Have told the people who are RECEIVING the Free Stuff,
That the people who are PAYING for the Free Stuff,
Are being mean, prejudiced and racist.

So …. the people who are GETTING the Free Stuff,
Have been convinced they need to HATE the people who are PAYING for the
Free Stuff because they are selfish. And they are promised more Free Stuff if they will vote for
the people who force the people who pay for the Free Stuff to give them even more Free Stuff.

And – – – – – that’s the Stuff!

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!”
