When I have the developed the business acumen to create a flat screen T.V. and you have developed the business acumen to light your own farts, I don’t understand how we could be of equal value to a society. Nor do I see it the government’s role to attempt to make us equal. In the words of Judge Smails “The world needs ditch diggers too.”
You ought to label these things “The Great “How Long Can You Bear The Stupid” Competition.
I cheated, I kept pausing it to smash my head against the table. And I only made it to 1:32.
Seriously, people. Plane tickets to North Korea.
Money is an instrument to store labor. Why? Because that way you don’t have to find someone who wants to trade handjobs for TVs or whatever your dealio is. You trade your handjobs for money, and then your money for the TV. That way, people can barter without spending a year trying to find the right exchange.
Hey – they were absolutely right! They were describing true, unfettered-by-government Capitalism. What they CAN’T see is the interfering hand of government screwing up everything it touches. (And it thinks it has a license to touch EVERYthing).
They even got the morality right. They were talking about how you have to be “a good person”? Well, how do “handshake” contracts work? We trust the guy we are making a contract with. In the “old days”, you would know the guy you were making the contract with subscribed to Christian morality, so you could trust his word. These guys don’t know about that.
The reason the poor and the rich are morals-less is because the rich have the $$ to insulate themselves from disaster, and the poor have nothin’ to lose. Only the Middle Class needs morals to keep from becoming impoverished by making stupid choices.
Merovign- yeah!! on the definition of ‘money’. I like to think of money as “stored energy”.
Dunno Doug. Might be a smidge of mercy inyewr heart that needs purgin. Me? I see 2 guize who jist recently climbed down outa a tree, shed they`s body hair and can durn near walk on their hind legs, purt near a half of a day. Afore I`d ask them a question about capitalism, I might ease into em with a few questions to first gimme a hint of the physical soundness of their *brane exercise program*….
Sum warmup questions like:
1. Why is toast?
2. Are banana peels a pain in the ass? If so, why?
3. (a ques to measure integrity…) Who ties your shoes?
4. (multiple choice…) Where do Coco Puffs come from, a bush, a tree or Puff the magic dragon?
5. (Yes or No-honesty question…) The last time you saw a vagina was at your birth—-Yes or No?
I suspect this short quiz might confirm that both of these critters, early in their youth had surgery which installed a titanium bar between their ears in order to prevent the vacuum pressure from smashing said ears together at midpoint inside their skulls…..

Question # 5 —I don’t think they’d understand the v word. You may have to use a more descriptive word.
That has been elevated above the fold.

Watched them all in full… My eyes are now bleeding. The one woman I would like to remind her that the natives was killing each other for nearly 10,000 years for hunting grounds before Columbus was born. Normally I would try to be witty and urbane, but commies ruin everything. Sighs..
Ok, DougM, I’ve thought ’bout this sit-chi-aye-shun & I think we
should give them just what they want, without the problems &
reminders of evil capitalism! Yanno out west where the
gubbmint has bazillions of square miles of open, unspoiled land!
Put a big fence around somma it & toss ‘em in! Then tell them
to go create whatever kind of utopia they want! Also that we
won’t bother or interfere with them in any way! ‘Cept to donate
many truckloads of evil capitalist ‘refuse’ for them to ‘recycle’
to help get their new ‘society’ functioning!
