The oyster and the eagle

When God made the oyster, He guaranteed the oyster’s economic and social security.

He built the oyster a house, a shell in which to shelter, protected from his enemies.

But when God made the eagle, He gave him freedom. The sky was the limit; God told the eagle if you want to be free, build your own home.

The world has more oysters than eagles. Most people prefer the stale calm of Utopia to a competitive hard-working, risk-taking freedom.

Most oppose freedom because freedom means individual responsibility.

Thomas Paine told the oysters: ”Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.’

Labour, therefore, is the real measure of the exchangeable value of all commodities.

Socialism is a state of oysters, where non-producers live off the blood, sweat and tears of the producers.

The American bald eagle is becoming extinct. Our government now confiscates 50 per cent of the average workers’ income to guarantee absolute economic and social security for every foreign and domestic oyster on earth.

We are in a war in Iraq to make the nation safe for democracy; to free a people who prefer slavery.

It was a wise eagle that once said: ‘Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’

Conclusion by Captain John Smith, president of the Virginia colony: ‘You must obey this now for a law — He that will not work shall not eat.’
