"Entire Class Fails when Obama’s Socialism Experiment Fails" is FAKE

There is a post going around

THIS TEACHER ROCKS! Entire Class Fails when Obama’s Socialism Experiment Fails

"An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently 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 will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
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. As the tests proceeded, 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."

First, if this was an economics professor doing this he would understand a few things about, you know, economics and the varying economic structures.
Second, its fake...

Obama is far from socialist! 

Rich Rubio wrote a post on The Huffington Post Barack Obama: A Socialist He Is Definitely Not

Socialism is a system wherein the population of a nation controls the means of production, not private individuals. There are many socialist elements in the U.S. including public beaches, public transportation, and public parks.

Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordability Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. The act requires every American to have health insurance. This act does not nationalize the healthcare industry, but instead provides government subsidies to private insurance companies. In effect, the nation's health care industry received about 31 million new customers courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Obama has done little to nothing to push the political spectrum toward socialism, he been called "The Worst Socialist Ever" by many  socialist

There is a difference between Socialism and Communism

The definition of Socialism Republicans and Conservatives give is more like the definition of Communism instead of Socialism. Socialism is best described as Capitalism with a conscience. It's a less harsh Capitalist system with a safety net for the losers. Socialism is also more Meritocratic than Capitalism. (Meritocracy: a system in which the talented are chosen and moved ahead on the basis of their achievement)

In a Capitalist system wealth is hoarded and passed down generation to generation, about forming aristocratic castes that work together and trade together to keep wealth amongst themselves.

In a Socialist system these castes are broken up, inheritance challenged and money made more available to those at the bottom so they may engage and challenge in competition too.

Many "Pro-Life" people out there base there argument on the fetus actually being a baby. Lets face this little fact, it is a fetus. It is not a person, yet.

Potential is not current state

The potential to be something does not make you that thing you have the potential to become. Everybody has the potential to be a criminal, does that make everybody a criminal?

Kids have the potential to grow up and become president. However we only have one at a time...

I have the potential to sleep with Mila Kunis.... We shall see what comes of that...

Every priest has the potential to be a pervert, does that make all priests perverts? I plead the 5th on this one...

Abortion is protected by the constitution

supreme court of Roe v. Wade
Recently I was reading a blog where someone commented that abortion is not protected by the constitution and that given we have the right to "life, liberty, and property"
The 14th amendment protects abortion " All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
Thus is a fetus is not born, it is not yet a citizen... Period

Lets Get real

If a woman or couple are not ready to have a baby, whether it be financially, emotionally, or medically, it is NOT the Government's business! That decision is the woman's and the woman's alone. 

There is a study showing due to these factors legalizing abortion actually contributed to reduction in crime. You can read the Frekonomics here. it is called Donohue-Levitt hypothesis

A fetus is a parasite, it sucks nutrients from the host's body. Why do you think women have to eat more and take prenatal vitamins? 

Many children are being born out of wedlock and to very young mothers. 
90% of young couples do NOT get married. 
Broken homes beget broken homes, abortion helps stop that cycle. If a couple can wait until they're ready and have the financial means to support a baby that child will have a better chance to succeed. 

I could go on forever, but this has already been decided.

I really could, but I don't think I need to. The Supreme Court Decision, Roe v. Wade decided that Abortion is protected under The Constitution. 
Seriously, read it for yourself!

Black Friday: An Inside View from the Line Level

Michael DukeAs Black Friday approaches many of us in the retail sector dread the onslaught of nasty customers and time away from our families. Many companies are forcing workers to come in ON "Thanksgiving" day and one is even OPENING ON "Thanksgiving".

As a retail employee, I am not thankful for that.

Many of the top executives will be sound asleep when the stores open their doors. However, the main driver in the Black Friday retail employee abuse is CEO Michael Duke. Last year, Wal-Mart CEO Michael Duke started a Black Friday Domino Effect, Wal-Mart was to open their doors at midnight. This action alone (midnight opening) sparked a response from all other retail chains to do the same so they would not loose out on business.
Walmart CEO Pay: More in an Hour Than Workers Get All Year?

This year, Wal-Mart is at it again.
Wal-Mart moved Black Friday from Friday to 8 PM THANKSGIVING DAY.  Corporate profits are more important than employee safety to companies these days and those of us at the line level are getting sick of it.

Workers are moving to organize a walkout given the ridiculous hours. 
OURWalmart organizers say they have 1,000 events planned this week. Support for the campaign, which has been gaining momentum across social media platforms, is mounting: The organization's Facebook page now has more than 29,000 'likes' and its accompanying YouTube video has been watched over 107,000 times.The organizers have also collected more than $38,000 in online donations to sponsor workers who walk out.

With all of this headache and the bastardizing of a Holiday, it may be prudent for consumers to ask themselves "am I contributing to this by participating".

Why Workers hate YOU for Black Friday

In my experience, this day is all about the money, but margins are so low it seems like a waste. Although a single store may make upwards of $1 Million that day, is the juice worth the squeeze?

Black Friday destroys worker sentiment, meaning, we all begin to hate the company we work for and want to spite it in revenge. Couple the OUTRAGEOUS hours we have to work, with the loss of sleep, with the loss of time with our families, with the belligerent customers, and you receive a recipe for angry employees.

In short, you are hated because you make us work ON A HOLIDAY!
