The Cow or the Ice Cream (sent from my son)
Unknown wish I did | unknown

The COW AND THE ICE CREAM ONE OF THE BEST THEORIES OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION

--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 3rd grade. The last 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. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word.

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 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year old's. They want ice cream.

The other 48.6% 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. Did you vote for the ice cream?

THAT MY FRIEND, IS HOW OBAMA GOT ELECTED...

BY THOSE WHO WANT EVERYTHING FOR FREE

Precise, concise & to-the-point. But the “takers” will still not get it. They’ll just want to argue over ice cream flavors.

0bama and his fellow marxists have set things up so that the producers work their a$$es off to support themselves and to pay the taxes that are forcibly taken to buy free things for the slackers who then faithfully go out and vote democrat.

I know you were being sarcastic, but I feel the need to make a point.

The voters in this country don't care about having ice cream themselves, they're totally satisfied by making sure YOU don't have it.

It was easy to understand the argument, "You have $20, and I have none, so you owe me $10." It's wrong, misguided and theft, but it made sense. I've become convinced that they just want someone to rip up your $20. They don't want to be better off, they just want to destroy us.

I remember hearing this story on the old “For the People” radio talkshow that was hosted by Chuck Harder.

Spot on. Nothing could be added to add any more clarity to the absurdity that has taken hold in this once great nation.

The ice cream voters don’t even know ice cream starts with the cow. They think it comes from the store, like money comes either from the mint or the bank. They don’t care about the cow or the dairy farmer. After all what does the cow and the dairy farmer have to do with ice cream. (sarc)

Also could have added that along with complaining about the ice cream flavors, they will also complain about the lousy service on their obamapho..

My wife was just talking with a friend that owns/runs a local restaurant. Times have been tough and he was hoping it would pick up this fall as it usually does. It hasn’t so he has taken a part-time job at the local grocery store to make ends meet and keep the restaurant open, pay his employees, buy his materials, etc.

He is sick and tired of folks asking him “how come you are working here?” One guy said, in all seriousness, “You own the restaurant, just write yourself a check.”

It is idiots like that, that have NO CLUE how things work, that vote Liberal. And even worse, a president that has never had a real job, much less run a business.

Thanks
I don't have a clue when or who wrote this. It could have been in the 20’s.
I did see it accurate though.

On a side note; everyone needs to study up on the night of the long knives.

"You have $20, and I have none, so you owe me $10."

This is known as the "You have something and I don't therefore you stole it from me" school of economics.

I also remember Chuck Harder expanded on it too. The free ice cream given out would be strawberry for example and then you have a few guys saying, “I don’t like strawberry, I like chocolate!” Then as he eluded too, let the massacre begin. B-(
