I think this joke, told to me many years ago illustrates just what kind of socialist Martin Luther Lincoln Jr. Jr. is.
An American reporter was sent to post-war Italy to report on the various political factions that were emerging. On this particular day he was interviewing a member of the Italian Communist Party. The conversation went like this:
So let me get this straight...if you have two houses you'll keep one for yourself, and give the other to the state?
Si...I give one to that state, and keep one for a myself.
And if you had two cars you'd keep one for yourself and give the other one to the state?
Si...I give one car to the state and keep one a for a myself.
And if you had two horses you'd keep one for yourself and give one to the state?
Si...I give one horse to the state and I keep one a for a myself.
And if you had two shirts you'd keep one for yourself and give the other to the state?
I don't understand...you'd give an extra house, an extra car, and extra horse...why not an extra shirt?
Well a...I got a two shirts.
If you buy a mansion in Hyde Park you're not planning on redistributing wealth to the poor...you're redistributing it to yourself, and your Hyde Park friends.
So America, how you lovin' Bush III? Having fun yet?
