Quote Of The Day — September 20, 2013

.
If you ask me to name the proudest distinction of Americans, I would choose- because it contains all the others- the fact that they were the people who created the phrase “to make money”. No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created.

    ” Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created “…

    And now, apparently, 51% think that is a disgusting trait. If only just enough wealth were created , and stolen, to pay for their free handouts, all would be well.

    Great quote. Too bad THAT idea as well has been LOST of the leftists.

  3. Great comments, Folks. Such a simple concept, but the ramifications are tremendous. And as you all have noted, totally lost on the moocher segment of society.

    “wealth has to be created” not redistributed as our current pos believes we need to do.

    • And we can’t create wealth by transfusing dollars we don’t have, into a dead and dying corpse. (Read, Solyndra, Government Motors, and a multitude of others.)
      There is NO business, too big to fail. No matter what the business, there is one waiting to fill the vacuum, and in a more honorable, moral and ethical manner.
      Hear me, Bank of America? JP Morgan?
