TWO COWS

A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to
your neighbor.

A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to
your neighbor.

A REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

A DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty
for being successful. You vote people into office who taxyour cows,
forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you
voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and
give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides
you with milk.

A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you
the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

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.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull,
and build a herd of cows.

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

other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the
cow drops dead.

one tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the
milk.

live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

are. You break for lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you
have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows.
You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting
cows and open another bottle of vodka.
