Why Do Socialist Quotas Always Start with Toilet Paper?

I spent over eight years in the former Soviet Union, and one of the biggest frustrations had to do with toilet paper.  A friend of mine told me that toilet paper in the USSR was like John Wayne – rough, tough, and didn’t take any *&^% from anyone.  This was true, but the real problem was finding any.  Sure, the stores carried the stuff but good luck finding any in a public (or business’s) restroom.  BYOTP was the rule of the day. You also had to bring your own food and drugs to the hospital…

Anyway, I saw this article that Spanish schools are threatening toilet paper quotas for their students due to budget cuts.  Wonder how they’re planning to enforce that?

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
