Letter: You have two cows...

Email

There has been much said and written about the different form(s) of government that our country and other countries are ruled by.

This list of political definitions came across my desk some 40 to 45 years ago and was at that time considered humorous. You may still find it humorous.

Socialism: You have two cows, you give one to your neighbor.

Communism: You have two cows. The government takes both and gives you the milk.

Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes both and sells you the milk.

Nazism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.

New Dealism: You have two cows. The government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away.

Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

And now a new one: Obamaism: (It's going to be interesting to see what will happen to the cows.)
