CORVETTES & CAPITALISM


CORVETTES & CAPITALISM

William Andrew Dillard
Heeza Nutt said that a guy with a “man bun” looked at Uncle Locke’s Corvette the other day and said, “I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost ?”
Uncle Locke replied: “I am not sure, but it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky 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 Decatur IL. 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 guess I’ll have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.”
Ha! He just made that bun-headed feller want to crawl back in his hole!
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.

Uncle Locke decided he won’t be Politically Correct anymore, which he isn’t!
