Rewriting history,

Communists/Leftists/Anti-Capitalists often rewrite history; particularly on university campuses. A good example is the legacy of Che Guevara. He is seen as a hero by Leftists and championed as someone who led a revolution. But did you know that Guevara never led a revolution? That's right....NEVER! He was a murderer and a thug; someone not worth remembering. The Anti-Capitalists are constantly rewriting history, do not be fooled by them.

Real value,

John Conlee

If a job doesn't pay a lot, does that make the job a waste of time? There are many ways to answer that question; a capitalist mind knows how to wisely answer it. John Conlee had a song about a man who wisely answered the question:

"Wherever I'm workin', whatever it's payin', It doesn't matter. Long as it's workin' with you.......
I may never have much silver & gold; but I've got something more precious & warmer to hold." -(As Long as I'm Rockin With You)

Too many cooks spoil the broth,

Think of a program that you would like to see the government perform. You can't get such a program passed without the support of others; others of course will only pass the law if it includes something to benefit them. After that it will have to be enforced, and you can't enforce it yourself. You will have to depend on others to enforce it; they will enforce it using their own (biased) judgments. Government programs are never as good as people intend them to be.

-Thomas Sowell

Please welcome Harry Browne,

Harry Browne's book "Why Government Doesn't Work" is a must read for anyone who loves Capitalism's Truths. He uses very simple English to explain the faults of big government programs. In the first chapter he explains what makes government different from other organizations like the Red Cross and the Boy Scouts; the difference is coercion. Browne says that the government forces people to comply while other groups only persuade. I want to encourage all of you to read this book; you will learn a lot.

Let's have a beer Boortz,

I couldn't have said it any better; here's Neal Boortz on wealth envy:

"Wealth envy is usually an excuse-making or defensive mechanism for those who have failed to become what they would consider to be "rich." These people can't understand why this is so. After all, they're good people aren't they? And they work just as hard as anyone else does! Yet they're not wealthy! It can't be them! It must be the other guy! So, they take comfort in believing that wealthy people must have acquired their wealth through dishonest means. By cheating people, exploiting people, and by using crooked lawyers. The real problem with this, other than the fact that it simply isn't true, is that the person who develops this wealth-hatred is really programming himself or herself to remain in their present economic situation. If you have convinced yourself that to become wealthy is a bad thing, then why in the world would your subconscious mind ever allow you to make the decisions or take the actions that would lead to wealth?"

Email Neal Boortz here, and encourage him to have a beer with me!

Anti-capitalists exist in many places,

Bruce Jacobs

Bruce Jacobs, a sports talk radio host on Foxsports radio, answered a question for me last night. I sent him an email asking him if he agrees with Rush Limbaugh's claim that the sports media is as liberal as the news media. He read the email on air and said he thinks the sports media is worse than the news media about liberal bias. No doubt the crusaders against Capitalist ideas exist in more places than one.

Watch and learn,

It's convenient that one can learn from others in a Capitalist society; if a person decides to become successful they have the chance to learn from those who are already successful. Unfortunately liberals choose to attack the successful members of society; that makes it easy to understand why such liberals are often unsuccessful members of society. When given the chance to learn from successful people, liberals would rather attack them.

Quote of the day,

Here's a quick fact about free trade courtesy of Dr. Walter Williams of George Mason University:

"The bottom line is that free trade, while it might mean painful adjustments for the few, benefits immensely the many through cheaper prices and wider choice."

Debunking price gouging,

Liberals love to use the term "price gouging" whenever they think a price of a product or service is too expensive. But in a free market system price gouging can't least not for long. Is the high price of a Superbowl ticket a result of price gouging? After all it is only a ticket to a football game. The answer is of course no; the high demand results in the high price. It's not rocket science.

I have known people who didn't own much wealth but were thankful for the wealth they did own. On the other hand there are others who live in conditions that most of the world would envy and yet remain unsatisfied by what wealth they own. If you had to walk miles to work at some point in your life, you wouldn't worry about not being able to afford a Cadillac; any car that you could afford would satisfy you. If you come to America from a country that had no hospitals or doctors in the entire country, then you wouldn't worry about having expensive health care; you'd be thankful for the health care that is present in America. To steal a line from the liberal song "Where Have all the Flowers Gone?": "When will they ever learn, .........when will they eeeevvveer learn?"
