A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost".

I replied "I am not sure. 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 have to admit, I guess I really don't know how many people it fed.

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.

Well said Bob, I got a million replys to most people, most are first hand knowledge from real people but I keep my mouth shut because people are losing their minds now.
