Those ice storms are hard on the big trees. I think many are beginning to think of moving to FL after this winter.
Maybe a little brainstorming on capitalizing on that fact is in order. I have never seen it so busy down here, well at least not in recent years.
Almost time for some spring training Baseball games. O's new facility is in Sarasota, and its really nice. Took my son to a game there last year.
No one works harder, or has a bigger heart. It was fun seeing him play such a key part in bringing Lord Stanley's cup to Tamp.
It will be difficult for me, as Martin St Luis is Canadian and my favorite hockey player. Happy to see both teams in the hunt.
how did the capitalists make out during the french revolution? (The comparison has no merit)
was christ a capitalist? (The fisherman were, and when Christ was a carpenter, he likely was paid for the work)
how much income inequality is enough? (give your wealth to your neighbors, in equal parts, then we can talk)
why not lower the tax rate to zero? (because government has legit functions, but we could remove income taxes, as they punish work)
the 99% all own guns, does that thought ever bother you? (Not at all, I prefer it that way, as did our founders)
is chineese capitalsim better than the old fashion kind (they have opened pandoras box to liberty, we have to give them time, its a really big ship with lots of captains)
Rand Paul for Pres, does that thought keep you up at nite? (I sleep well, and support most of his thinking)
is the 2008 financial collapse a distant memory? (No, and the collapse was a creation of Government interference and manipulation in an attempt to equalize inequity, and that kind of thinking always hurts the middle class the most.)
Putin is going to be really mad.
Nick, you can not be certain he will say nothing new. Run-up starts when shorts get nervous.
Sum, I did respond, and with sincerity. You seem reflective recently, and I like this part of your personality. Your subject matter is deep, and "the solution" requires much wisdom, and faith in liberty, not legislation, or redistribution of other men's wealth. Opportunity and outcome can never be equal. But, with fidelity to liberty, access to education, hard work, a willingness to live below one means, a willingness to save and invest, and a little imagination, almost anyone can have a level of success they can be proud of. However, only a small percentage of people understand this, and not all of them are willing to sacrifice for the likely rewards of such sacrifice.
James Allen, Author of "As A Man Thinketh", explains this concept beautifully. And many successful people have read his writings, often.
I actually love the subject matter. It is the kind of subject real men of the past talked about. Rarely do men speak of such things today, as most are more concerned with offending, rather than coming to a level of clarity of thought.
The power lies with each of us to pursue happiness. We the people just have to keep removing barriers to the pursuit of happiness that are mostly erected by people in government who mostly think they are only trying to help.
