For all you stupid people who can't read sarcasm.

Darkbeaver is being sarcastic.

That's why I'll never run darkbeaver out of the forum. He's not old and miserable. He still knows how to have fun.

Some people might need a rest from your stupidity once in a while , and your face might scare old ladies at night...
But go ahead and enjoy your delusions
You have to be the only one who is proud of his own shortcomings in this forum...

A Modern Parable

A Japanese company (Toyota) and an American company (General Motors) decided to have a canoe race on the Missouri River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race.

On the big day, the Japanese won by a mile.

The Americans, very discouraged and depressed, decided to investigate the reason for the crushing defeat. A management team made up of senior management was formed to investigate and recommend appropriate action.

Their conclusion was the Japanese had 8 people paddling and 1 person steering, while the American team had 7 people steering and 2 people paddling.

Feeling a deeper study was in order, American management hired a consulting company and paid them a large amount of money for a second opinion

They advised, of course, that too many people were steering the boat, while not enough people were paddling.

Not sure of how to utilize that information, but wanting to prevent another loss to the Japanese, the paddling team's management structure was totally reorganized to 4 steering supervisors, 2 area steering superintendents and 1 assistant superintendent steering manager.

They also implemented a new performance system that would give the 2 people paddling the boat greater incentive to work harder. It was called the 'Rowing Team Quality First Program,' with meetings, dinners and free pens for the paddlers. There was discussion of getting new paddles, canoes and other equipment, extra vacation days for practices, and bonuses. The pension program was trimmed to 'equal the competition' and some of the resultant savings were channeled into morale boosting programs and teamwork posters.

The next year the Japanese won by two miles.

Humiliated, the American management laid off one paddler, halted development of a new canoe, sold all the paddles, and cancelled all capital investments for new equipment. The money saved was distributed to the Senior Executives as bonuses.

The next year, try as he might, the lone designated paddler was unable to even finish the race (having no paddles), so he was laid off for unacceptable performance, all canoe equipment was sold and the next year's racing team was out-sourced to India.

Sadly, the End.

Here's something else to think about : GM has spent the last thirty years moving all its factories out of the US, claiming they can't make money paying American wages.


TOYOTA has spent the last thirty years building more than a dozen plants inside the US. The last quarter's results:

TOYOTA makes 4 billion in profits while GM racks up 9 billion in losses.

GM folks are still scratching their heads, and collecting bonuses...

IF THIS WEREN'T SO TRUE IT MIGHT BE FUNNY

The reason why any system will fail, that it's capitalism or socialism is

To many people on the


Someone has to work hard at making it work, or it will fail. And that goes for anything.

While capitalism keeps track of reality of a limited resource world, and our ability to exploit these resources. Socialism simply gives all things equally reguardless of limites or difficulty of extraction. The set crashes and booms in capitalism are a natural representation of our failure or success to meet demands of the people.

Instead of the complet market failures experienced in communist countries, that completely ignore reality of limits and difficulty.
