Thoughts for the Day
First: One of the absurdities one often hears from The Left is that there is such a thing as excess profits or surplus capital. In effect, that someone (other than the whiny Leftist) has too much money and that they have stashed it away somewhere it is not being used.
But in the real world all profits are either used to purchase goods and services created by other people or they are invested in a productive enterprise with the reasonable expectation of a further profit. In either case one man's profit provides gainful employment for other people. But to the whiny Leftist this is evil because it doesn't allow him or her to exist parasitically off of other people.
Need I say anything more?
