From each according to their ability (you DONT OWN what you produce) Too each according to their needs (you DONT get to decide that. Your needs and that of your family are done by "experts" at the Government Central Needs Determination Office)
January 20, 2017 (and thereafter): In Bernies (Hillary?) perfect "progressive" world, and with Global Warming (Climate Change on cold days) "crisis" looming (it's gonna happen any day now, PROMISE!)... quick action to save the planet has been instituted. As we all want to help solve this crisis, we now get our monthly ration coupons (after we wait in line several hours at the Government Central Allocations Office). ALL aspects of daily life are now licensed, permitted, regulated, rationed and most important taxed (lest we damage the planet)! After waiting in line at the Central Allocations Office to receive our ration coupons, we get to wait in a long line again at one of the Government Distribution Centers there we must present the appropriate coupon for our fair share (if available?) of food, fuel, medicine, our monthly ration of toilet paper and other essentials as well as monthly allocation of internet access, most to be used for the hours we are obligated to read government approved websites.
Historical Note: the 2nd Amendment is still in the Constitution but after President Obamas last executive order nationalizing all gun/ammo manufacturers (upheld by SCOTUS 5-4), you must now register all firearms, pay a fee, high liability insurance and then apply for your ammo permit and ration which after paying the fee, has a 20 year waiting period and applications have a tendency to get lost, then you must re-apply and repay go figure.
A day in the life: After settling in to your government approved housing (800 square feet for a family of four) you are called by the MisAllocation of Resources Department a friendly (but stern) voice informs you that your family exceeded its rationed number of toilet flushes for the month which is 50 flushes, but the government required sensor in the bathroom detected 62. You explain that a stomach bug infected the family, necessitating the additional flushes. The friendly (but stern) voice is understanding that "such things happen", and politely explains your options: you can agree to cut flushes by three for the next four months or you can pay the fine or do the required community service for exceeding your allocations (OK). You have a family event coming up and want to plan a party so you use a few of your internet access hours to seek a party permit allowing additional food, drink and toilet flushes. After filling out the online form with proper justification a small fee is charged your party is in two weeks, hopefully the permit will be issued by then. Also, while on the website, you fill another application to get a vacation license for next year and get on the waiting list for accommodations at the beach you hope a room will be available before your scheduled dates a small fee is charged. Your momma, still full of life and vigor gets seriously ill and due to her age (80) she is no longer receiving healthcare coupons for medicine and hospital time (theres critical shortage of doctors as most have left practice or the country) but the merciful District Medicine Czar does offer her a pill. Bernies (Hillary's) perfect world Socialist Utopia where all is fair and equal.
Notes: Dear Leaders are exempt from the rules outlined above
all animals are equal, but (socialist) pigs are more equal. Hava great "progressive" day!
In the Muslim religion, Allah and state are one in the same, with NO variations permitted! This (IMHO) explains the strange affection socialists (aka: liberals, progressives) have for Islam
as both desire to crush any opposition or even questioning of the Caliphate
ALL must kneel and worship at the altar of the collective.
This progressive world as thus formulated is an inherent oxymoron, a self contradiction, a cruel joke, a hoax.
Its fault is not that it wanted to have a heart. Its fault is where it wanted to try to find one to have.
The only heart worth having in the end is God’s. And the love of God is not an anything goes love. It can’t be, or He would have to cede being a Creator.
The idea of such a thing under fallen man’s control is worse even than bovine manure. At least you can fertilize things with bovine manure. This is just poison.
That phrase itself is strange. Who are the "they" whose ability determine what each individual should produce? There is nothing previous to identify who this group is that is the model for the individuals referenced.
Thank you for your note. Left or Right up or down you are right.
He is the only reality for sure.
Thanks for this!
In the meanwhile, Jail her and toss the key!
I think this is intended to mean “from each according to his or her ability” — maybe it is one of the earlier examples of the bastardized use of the plural pronoun in order to minimize recognition of individuality.
Even Hillary could repent, in principle. What we have to shut resolutely out of our lives is the literal devil.
And .. if you read Rush Limbaugh’s book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims”, this book totally BLOWS THE LIBERALS MANTRA OUT OF THE WATER. The Pilgrims actually tried the Socialist method .. IT DIDN’T WORK .. THE LAZY DIDN’T WORK, BUT WANTED A PART OF THE SPOIL .. just like now.
If you have children, or family with young children, be sure you get these books into their hands. We need to re-educate our children on the TRUTH about America.
The books are #1 on the NYT Book list.
The proper English is “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” It is also the original of the quote. When you PC it you render it nonsense. “His” is not exclusive to the male sex in a general reference except to to the feminists who are unhappy about all gender referent pronouns and adjectives.
from each according to zir ability, to
each according to zir needs.
that would be feminist approved the gender neutral pronoun for his is zir in the possessive sence.
not that I would actually use them but there is gender neutral pronouns for all the various sences of the regular pronouns.
Sences? Is that something to do with incense?
fat fingers little droid keyboard, sense of a pronoun as in first person I , us , me. second person you, third person him,her, she, he. The gender neutral third person sense of the pronouns he / she is ze the gender neutral of him / her is zir.
