Today’s free lesson in economics – and worth every penny – is this:

My Lexus & Capitalism:

A guy looked at my Lexus the other day and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost.

I replied I am not sure. It fed a lot of families in Windsor, Ontario, who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Sault St Marie. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families. BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.

That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets, and give them dignity for their skills.

When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.

Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value.

Socialism is taking your money against your will and shoving something down your throat that you never asked for.”

  • I would deliver random house books Westminster Maryland to Toronto Ontario airport area. Like Brampton Ontario and south on dixie road . I would sleep at the husky their. And I was told on the cb radio channel 19 to get out of Canada and don’t come back, Canada freight is for Canada truck’s, Canada is for Canadians and not you people from the US. Muslims said if you show up in Canada again I will kill you, then said the Canadian government told me to say that.
