Ya it figures.....

I tell ya the US system is the joke of the world because of the Corporate lobbying and all the $ in politics. Our “dumb as rock” capitalist friends and their "I don’t want the government in my business" ideology works against them when it comes to food,clean water and clean air...

That's the kind of thing the anticapitalists and the antifa want you thinking.

Personally, I am too wise to accept that. Dinesh D'Souza's works are a good source here, especially his What's So Great About Capitalism.

In mere capitalism, clean water and air are excellent marketing- and selling-points, especially in North America and Western Europe -- the kind of cultures you have the most personal experience of. Have you diligently (like, reading up) studied on this?

It worked pretty well for the US until the pre-WW I depression, and worked again until the great depression. Then with restraints by the government it worked well again until globalization and Ronnie Rayguns taking off the restraints left it to it's own devices... which weren't in our best interest.
If you think Directors and CEOs are good guys who give a rat's ass about the best interests of you and the country, I've got a bridge I'd be willing to sell you.

Don't be silly; remember two things: I'm not in the bridge market, and I'm a Libertarian, despising each and every anticapitalist idea as sillyboogery blended with slaveholding and serfdom. Once you successfully piss on anticapitalism, you are a free man, and one down with life itself, rather than slow death.

Always take this lesson: it is no crime to truly make wealth, being rich isn't a crime either -- only the criminal believe that.

Non-economists can't choke that idea down, and spit out sillyboogery in consequence.

Too not-wise. I have no part of it.

This is true, however how it was obtained may very well be a crime. Products and services which poison, maim, and kill people with adulterants and/or shoddy production should be prosecuted.
Also fraudulent claims that steal from common folk (I'll avoid the hyperbole of widows & orphans) their life savings should be addressed.

And yet Capitalists used enslaved human beings as collateral on loans.

Growing up outside NYC I know what great pizza is. After moving to Bumfuck, NY near the adirondacks* I realized I had to learn to make my own pizza. I started 15 years ago and make 3-4 pizzas every friday** and I've gotten pretty good at it.




*Once, about 4 years ago I was in the middle of the Adirondacks and stopped at a deli/gas station miles from nowhere or the nearest town. The only thing halfway decent looking was pizza in a revolving hot cabinet. The inch and I took our chances and it was astonishingly good pizza. By far the best I've ever had outside New York or New Haven and their environs.


**I make pizza every Friday, well, not absolutely every Friday, but most Fridays in the month. I expect I must make pizza about three or four times a month, at least three or four, only some Fridays... like last Friday, there really wasn't the time, so that moved the average down a bit...
