“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

How much for that sheep in the window?

This scam is even funnier than Al Gore's carbon-offset swindle...

Thousands of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles.

Flocks of sheep were imported to Japan and then sold by a company called Poodles as Pets, marketed as fashionable accessories, available at $1,600 each.

That is a snip compared to a real poodle which retails for twice that much in Japan.

The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.

She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep.

Seriously folks, I'm not making this up. How dumb do you have to be to not notice the hooves? And you'd think the constant baaa baaa would be a clue. How do you live your entire lives and not know what a sheep looks like?

This is what dogs look like to the Japanese.
