To make ends meet, many Disneyland workers have resorted to prostitution.

If you ever dreamed of sleeping with a pretend real life Disney princess, now's your chance.

In all seriousness, no one should have to sell their bodies just to pay rent and bills.

I did an OCR scan on the above image to reproduce the text in a more readable format, and corrected spelling errors only.  Here it is:

Fig. 1: Socialism explained by Capitalists

1. The aim of Socialism is to bring the lower classes into the middle class and dissolve the upper classes; what is not realized here is the existence of a centralized bureaucracy would only set up a new upper class of 'bureaucratic elites', privileging themselves with the primary hold on capital and resources as they monopolize distribution; this solution to "class warfare" defeats itself.

2. While some individuals are truly disadvantaged and in need of help, automatically labeling the poor as "in need" is a sure way to keep them so.  Not only is the welfare system flawed in acting as a "free lunch" to the unwilling, but also a trap, waiting to backfire as soon as individuals standard of living raises to a point where they no longer qualify for aid, but will not maintain a good standard of living for some time until they are independent

3. The services provided by bureaucracy are poor and make for a tax more expensive than any bill or price tag on the market; they are poor for the same reason a diabetic has more incentive to exercise than a perfectly fit individual: here's always the threat of health, metaphorically job security.  Also, they are more expensive due to added-on bureaucratic costs (paperwork, wages, etc.) and the cost for the actual services themselves, even more so for high-md service.

4. By putting the tax burden on the rich and business, one is sure to hamper industry; every cent of a profit taxed is a cent lost to being able to provide more jobs, better goods and services, and a better working facility.  This is to assume that the bureaucracy won't own and manage the workplaces, in which the threat of failure and profit loss would not factor in decision-making for the company's (worker's) best interests.

5. The fallacy in criticizing the rich as greedy, manipulative, and authoritative is that Socialism's alternative, bureaucracy, is in essence no different; the problem now is the cronies are working together instead of competing.

6. Like taxation, regulation is a hindrance to industry; instead of directly cutting into capital, it is a loss of potential gains. While they are good meaning, regulations hinder the efficiency and production capabilities of the workplace, only hurting the worker in the end.

7. Soviet Russia, China, and North Korea are/were socialist economies; next up, America.

Fig. 2: Capitalism explained by Socialists

(A childish image involving two stick figures. One, labeled "Rich", is wearing a hat and is defecating on the face of a supine stick figure labeled "Poor".  The caption for this figure is in a child-like scrawl that reads "Capitalism=EVIL".  There is a little devil's tail descending from the bottom of the 'L' in "EVIL".)

The overall caption for the entire image reads: "Socialism: the 'creation science' of economics."


I find nothing in Fig. 1 with which to disagree.  Nor do I disagree with the overall caption.

It is the insipidness of Fig. 2 that I find objectionable.  A better argument could be made in words, and not with some cartoon fit only for a restroom wall or a union striker's picket sign.

Not that I would agree with such an argument, but it would be nice to see what the Socialist philosophers really have to say about Capitalism . . . if only so I could tear it apart and render it into a steaming pile of organic mulch, such as from which it originated.

Here's another owning the libs joke. It goes like this:

A conservative takes a viagra pill and several hours pass and he still has an erection. He decides to show it off to his liberal next door neighbor. "Check it out!" says the Conservative. The Liberal says "Dude, I don't want to see that!" The Conservative says "I took some viagra and I've this going for over six hours. I bet you can't even keep it hard this long." The Liberal says "You're not supposed to! You need to see a doctor immediately!" The Conservative says "No way, Bro! I'm enjoying this! Later impotent loser!" Shortly after returning home, the Conservative dies of cardiac arrest.
