What's a nerd thinking during an early morning walk/run/jog/crawl on a balmy 27 degree morning?? Today it was socialism.

As I dressed to head out this morning, there was a story on the news about Obama. Apparently, the White House has prohibited the press from taking pictures of a shirtless Obama in Hawaii. That's probably due to his "I love Allah" tattoo on his chest. Maybe it is the tattoo of Karl Marx on his back. Whatever, no shirtless pictures of the Anointed One.

How times have changed. When Kennedy was President, you couldn't find a picture of him on vacation with a shirt. The White House figured if they could just get him to keep his pants on, it would be a good day.

I saw a great bumper sticker the other day. It read "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money". One of the best examples of this is Cuba. Cuba at one time was the shining star of socialism in the Western Hemisphere. Then the Soviet Union collapsed and with that Cuba began to run out of "other people's money". The situation has continued to deteriorate. the news from Cuba this week is the end of state subsidised soap for Cubans. Let's see, hot little island in the Caribbean, filled with people who can't afford soap. Tourism will sag as people avoid the smelly little island. Who we are kidding?? The French will still flock there.

Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried. What great country is socialist?? Yet people continue to advocate this insane system. The reality is that people are not going to do for others what they won't do for themselves. Socialism is a failure waiting to happen.

Socialism's cousin communism failed in a spectacular fashion in the Soviet Union. You either have to accept that Communism as an economic system is a failure or they were the victims of seventy straight years of bad weather.

Obama. I don't care if he's black, white, or undecided. I don't care if he's a Muslim or a Methodist. My dislike for him is simple. He's a Socialist. Having just written that, he's actually closer to a Communist. He's a big believer in the ruling class idea as practiced in the USSR. Let's bid Comrade Obama farewell in 2012!!
