With all the talk about Wal-Mart shutting down small businesses, let me give you a direct statement. Here it is: Those businesses that are shut down by Wal-Mart deserve to fail. For two main reasons (1) Those businesses have failed in offering goods and services that most people consider to be valuable. (2) Success is cheapened if we do not allow failure to happen when it is deserved. It is damned difficult for a mom and pop shop to compete with Wal-Mart. But until the mom and pop shops stand up to Wal-Mart and compete they shall never experience the joy of a David versus Goliath type victory. Great success only happens when failure is faced and accepted. When failure is not faced, success is weakened and loses its great value.

Ronald Reagan understood the beauty of Capitalism. He knew that big government is Capitalism's biggest enemy. After teaching us that lesson, he told the nation that: "Nothing lasts longer than a temporary government program." Unfortunately President Bush has spoken in favor of a temporary worker program for illegal aliens from Mexico.(During his speech to the nation 5/15/2006) Temporary....yea, sure.

On the May, 14th 2006 edition of Meet The Press......host Tim Russert asked if bloggers, talk radio, and cable news should "tone it down"? (tone down the rhetoric he says). I like Tim Russert personally, but I have to wonder just why he would ask such a question. Readers of my blog have achieved a better appreciation for Capitalism. All the other media outlets he mentioned also have done a good job of getting pro-American messages out there. I will continue to watch and enjoy Tim Russert for now, but I must say I am disappointed.

We all have ideas and thanks to Capitalism we can profit from them. It is easy to see this in action when someone invents a car and sells it. But if you look at it deeper you see that the design of the car had to be thought of, so did the car's color, and so did the design of the car's interior. All people with such ideas can make money under a Capitalist system. If you are not in good physical health to lift heavy equipment on an assembly line, then you could learn to paint and sell portraits. Aren't you glad that Capitalism makes anybody with ideas a success?
