A taoist has two cows, while he thinks about what to do with them, they starve to death.

CANADIAN CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You can't milk them because you must receive approval from the Cow Regulatory Board of Canada. Meanwhile, the government demands you reduce your cows' greenhouse gas emission in order to meet Kyoto targets. You ship the cows to America, give up, and vote for the Liberals again.

Facism Mrs. Heighberg Style: You have two cows, sitting in computer class you suddenly realize that your cows, have eaten Mrs. Heighberg, nobody is concerned.

HIGHBERGISM: You have two cows. You milk them just fine. Unfortunately, the government, "Big Sister," continually forces you to make bureaucratically arbitrary "improvements" to your already flawless design. Big Sister thinks she has power, yet the bourgeois sheep actually run the entire day-to-day milking operations. Eventually, the sheep realize that they outnumber her thirty-fold, and rise up in a psuedo-communist revolution. Big Sister is deported to Chad. World peace ensues. You still milk your cows just fine.
(Please note: This form of Highbergism is the only correct form. The version posted by somebody supposedly named "Mike Thomas" is, needless to say, CRAP. This "Mike Thomas" is actually an incompetent freshman who knows nothing about politics. This "Heathen of Politics" stole our idea, and, not only did he attempt to publish something halfway intelligent (keyword attempt), he did it without telling us! Please consider this the REAL version of Highbergism. Thank you - the sheep.
P.S. This form of the famous "two-cow government" is for anyone who has had the "esteemed pleasure"--and we do use this term lightly--of having Mrs. Highberg's computer programming class!)
