So the young America's foundation ran their annual GPA redistribution contest it get students to apply the idea.
Of spreading the wealth to their grades meaning if you're GPAs in the top 10%.
Would you sign a petition to transfer some of your grade to kids with lower marks be -- patriotic -- as it where.
Here's some tape how it went.
Thank you noticed that little planet.
I feel like yeah yeah.
-- it got out.
No we didn't because I -- aren't familiar with each individual.
Obviously a racist so is -- -- to withhold your grades simply because -- worked hard for them.
I mean how is it really your grade if he took a public road to get to school or took the subway to your study group.
And is -- your grade your professor drew -- salary from public funds.
Worst -- your grade when you benefit from 400 years of oppression -- patriarchy.
So it's where the Buffett rule -- instituted the Gutfeld rule which demands that students with the GPA of three point eight or higher slashing it by 8%.
Giving that -- to those who deserve their fair share that's gonna when he -- I know I know you study hard for those grades grades but as a patriotic -- -- isn't it your duty to give up what you really don't need.
Trust me like President Obama I know better.
Of course as a -- -- ruled the Gutfeld rule has no.
Beneficial effect on the economy it just makes me feel good about making you feel bad.
That's I think this -- this exercise is kind of clever what they came up with that because a lot of.
Couple a lot of students they don't have jobs they don't pay taxes they understand fair share other than the fact that it sounds really really good.
Yeah it's just like that email forward these people send around sometimes it's if you -- to explain it to kids explain it yet in -- sense of grades.
It's a great way to put it I was actually 99% -- when it came to -- especially in algebra so I would've taken some of those.
Yeah those grades others student I would pass fail them personally yeah yeah that's like just say I never I'm too old for pass fail.
They -- have never had a -- ever had a pass fail.
I was as he passed out but I didn't mess ups Bob you have of -- look at your faced it before.
Grade redistribution spreading the GPA around as it -- this and -- to get my grade up it would take the entire student body.
You give me all of that grant in order to get it up -- listen I mean it's the ideas to equate this with.
With that taxes and if you make more money you should give some Mormon way.
The GPA is don't have -- -- do with wars -- spend money in government and investments -- I think I get the notion about what we're trying to do here but.
I think it's just silly of course you should get a degree.
I mean if I gave up at -- my great -- that I was.
It's a perfect example arsonists know it's it's it is heard exactly perfect exit don't -- -- -- work hard earned money in the government says I want a piece of you work hard you study hard.
And in the teacher in this example would say I want a piece of your great great give the people image you don't -- government fusion -- for whatever reason.
Warrants gifted enough to get good -- that's the best technology can do -- its class well its class warrior in in the classroom.
Where is Obama and then been -- But Warren Buffett are doing it in business yeah I mean -- I mean think about it what I was talking about gaining in my brilliant monologue by the way which generally it was probably the best one you've ever heard -- -- that like you grace not your great if you use anything public.
Which is kind of the same argument if you take the bus to class technically the government helped you so is not arguments.
-- He's a big argument about everything that's not saying okay so I yes so brilliant and it -- an obvious -- at all.
MS had the parents of the ticket if you say it's the tuition and you are making sure that the kids that evening maybe there's a bonus pool that if you get.
And -- he'll get XYZ for Christmas.
How -- -- the parents need to find out that the kid gave -- some -- the grade point average but also and I know you would have done.
You would not -- taken the great.
The fact that we have kids today who would actually accept.
Somebody else's grade -- to help their own.
That I thinks that's -- you know I was.
Yeah I was so proud of my C minus or maybe.
Bob you raise your hands -- you would have to an -- By -- Andrea specifically looking eye contact -- -- Even have to be great it can be any kind of talent that you have.
But a great -- should not make government.
Grow they don't pay for the military -- doses analogy is to -- -- -- but.
But great and it get you the job.
It gets you the money that goes that -- you graduates -- that you could actually then get a job we're trying to talk about the school that that makes you not so you get a good.
I -- -- to want to talk about it that we good drives I assure us that so I can do it as my one more thing you're having senator mothers are saved remark coming out.
