Subject: FW: This teacher is truly a genius!

This teacher is truly a genius!


As the late Adrian Rogers said, "you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." 
This man is truly a genius!

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. 

Remember, there is a mid-term election in 2010!

Subject: FW: The cow and the ice cream...





--From a teacher in the Nashville area

"We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'

  The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year...

The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.

I decided we would have an election for a class president.

  We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.

  To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.

We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

  The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.

I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.

I had never seen Olivia's mother.

  The day arrived when they were to make their speeches. 

Jamie went first.

He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better

place. He ended by promising to do his very best.

Everyone applauded and he sat down.

  Now is was Olivia's turn to speak.

  Her speech was concise.

She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream."

She sat down.

The class went wild. "Yes! Yes!

We want ice cream."

  She surely would say more. She did not have to..

A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream?

She wasn't sure.

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it.

She didn't know.

The class really didn't care.

All they were thinking about was ice cream.

  Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide..

  Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and

52 percent of the people reacted like nine year olds.

They want ice cream.

  The other 48 percent know

they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."

This is the ice cream Obama promised us!

Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone --

that they have not first taken away from someone else.

Subject: FW: What a Letter?

What a Letter?




           This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was 
brave enough to attach her name to it.


                     April 17, 2009

                     The White House
                     1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
                     Washington ,  DC  20500

                     Mr. Obama:
                     I have had it with you and your 
administration, sir.  Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has 
convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the 
United States of America collectively or of me personally.

                     You are so obsessed with appeasing the 
Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the 
responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . 
You are responsible to the citizens of the United States ...  You 
are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

                     I personally resent that you go around the 
world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we 
are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world.  Sir, 
what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were 
all about if not the consideration of the peoples of  Europe ?  Are 
you brain dead?  What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? 
Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

                     Where do you get off telling a Muslim country 
that the  United States does not consider itself a Christian 
country?  Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the 
Constitution of the  United States ?  This country was founded on 
Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at 
least until you came along, come directly from this heritage.  Do 
you not understand this?

                     Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an 
affront to all Americans.  Our President does not bow down to 
anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia .  You didn't show Great 
Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they 
deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia ...  How dare 
you, sir!  How dare you!

                     You cant find the time to visit the graves of 
our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans 
but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey ....  You offended our 
dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than 
the people who saved the German people from themselves.  What's the 
matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your 
administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud 
puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you..

                     You are so self-righteously offended by the 
big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing 
about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, 
Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the 
Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? 
Anything?  I seriously doubt it.

                     What about the U.S. House members passing out 
$9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 
million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves?  I 
understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus.  I took a 5% cut 
in my pay to save jobs with my employer.  You haven't said anything 
about that.  Who authorized that?  I surely didn't!

                     Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will 
be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, 
that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses.  In fact, Fannie and 
Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad 
take.  Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your 
outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic 
mess we have right now?

                     I resent that you take me and my fellow 
citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do.  We 
are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed 
up with all of you.

                     I also want you to know that I personally find 
just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of 
my sensibilities.  I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see 
that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my 
beautiful country.

                     Every real American

                     P.S.  I rarely ask that emails be 'passed 
around'.............PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST......it's 
past time for all Americans to wake up!
