    This is old, and most of you have seen it. But as we continue to discuss socialist, fascist, communist, etc., I thought we could go through these. Comments and insights, please:

    (be aware that the 2nd half of these are more funny (or attempts at it) than anything else...I'm more interested in what you think about the first half of the list)

    (source: HERE, but there are other places w/this)

    I think the "democracy" one is way off. I would say:

    Democracy: You have two cows. For all decisions regarding the care of your cows, a majority of neighbors must approve.

    That's interesting.

    I was listening to a morning radio show (The John Boy & Billy Big Show) & they had a similar thing except it had nothing to do with cows or all of the different classifications of government. This one had to do with conservatives & liberals. It went something like this:


    You are walking down the street with your family & man comes toward you family with a knife demanding your money. You have a gun in your possesion. Do you give him your money to protect your family from harm? Do you point it at him & hope he'll run away? What will you do?

    The liberal response:
    That's just not enough information. Is he a minority? Has he been oppressed or come from a troubled background. Can I try to knock the knife out of his hand?

    The conservative response:
    BANG!

    The Southern conservative response:
    BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click click click click. Oh there's just never enough bullets in these guns. Well let me reload. Okay, BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

    Of course it was much funnier on the program the way they did it.
