Conservative on Target! Socialism & Suicide, Bribery, Teachers & More

So have a guilt-free laugh about Weinergate. Not only are political sex scandals great fun, they serve an important social purpose. They remind us that we should think twice before we cede more power to these clowns.


  The NAACP vs. Black Schoolchildren > Apparently, the teachers come first! “Why are teachers so bold when banks are so cautious? The banks pay a price for being wrong. Teachers don't.

   “If banks try to act like they are real-estate companies and hold on to a huge inventory of foreclosed homes, they are likely to lose money big-time, as those homes deteriorate and cannot compete with homes marketed by real estate companies with far more experience and expertise in this field.
   But if teachers fail to educate children, they don't lose one dime, no matter how much those children and the country lose by their failure. If the schools waste precious time indoctrinating children, instead of educating them, that's the children's problem and the country's problem, but not the teachers' problem.” ~ Thomas Sowell


"The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money." -- Alexis de Tocqueville

Ask:

If socialism is so great, how come the suicide rate is so much higher in countries with socialized medicine, including Sweden, Switzerland, France, and Cuba?
