Dear Anti-Capitalists, do you think this teenager deserves to be wealthy, or should she have created this superb invention strictly for the benefit of mankind?
Trick question, folks. You can benefit mankind and be wealthy. It’s not only possible, it’s the way life should be.

No, this has nothing to do with 2016, but I will do what I can to make Ted Cruz our next president, including posting great pics like this.

Yes, but we get DOUBLE the maternity leave.

“Many people think of labor unions as organizations to benefit workers, and think of employers who are opposed to unions as just people who don’t want to pay their employees more money. But some employers have made it a point to pay their employees more than the union wages, just to keep them from joining a union.
Why would they do that, if it is just a question of not wanting to pay union wages? The Twinkies bankruptcy is a classic example of costs created by labor unions that are not confined to paychecks.
The work rules imposed in union contracts required the company that makes Twinkies, which also makes Wonder Bread, to deliver these two products to stores in separate trucks. Moreover, truck drivers were not allowed to load either of these products into their trucks. And the people who did load Twinkies into trucks were not allowed to load Wonder Bread, and vice versa.
All of this was obviously intended to create more jobs for the unions’ members. But the needless additional costs that these make-work rules created ended up driving the company into bankruptcy, which can cost 18,500 jobs. The union is killing the goose that laid the golden egg.
Not only are there reasons for employers to pay their workers enough to keep them from joining unions, there are reasons why workers in the private sector have increasingly voted against joining unions. They have seen unions driving jobs away to non-union competitors at home or driving them overseas, whether with costly work rules or in other ways.”

“There is nothing wrong with buying local, of course. Consumers have every right to choose where they shop. But on close examination, it gets tricky.
Take a locally-owned coffee shop. Very little of what it sells is actually local. The coffee beans come from Brazil, Ghana, Kenya — half a world away. The cappuccino was invented in Italy and many of the machines are manufactured in China. How is it “buying local” when you spend money there?
The trucks that hauled the goods to the locally owned business might be American-made — but probably not in greater Milwaukee, unless the delivery man drives a Harley. And the truck just as likely came from Japan or Germany.
And the customers? They probably wear clothes made in Bangladesh, Mexico, or Indonesia. If they are well-heeled, they might be wearing an Italian suit, or the latest fashions from Paris. They might surf the web on computers made in Japan or Korea and listen to music on an iPod — the back of which proudly says, “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.”
“The way for a town to prosper is for it to do what it does best. And just as importantly, to not do what it does poorly. If every town tried to produce locally everything it consumes, quality would suffer and prices would be much higher because of the diseconomies of scale that would create.”
The American Spectator : The Myth of Buying Local.
“It is not necessary to explode every single lie put out by liberal Democrats. All that is necessary is to thoroughly discredit a few of their key claims, exposing them as liars.
What is even more necessary is for Republicans themselves to understand the urgent need to do so, for their own sake and– more important– for the country’s sake.”
