Political Systems

Capitalism, American style

You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

Democracy, American style

You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your' government.

Bureaucracy, American style

You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours the milk down the drain.

  8. Maybe they should have pigs instead because they can't through the milk down the drain only drain the fat from the bacon. Ha,ha,ha.
