Capitalism, the best economic system, practiced around the world, is now under attack by "socialists" who seem eerily similar to communists. I"m new here and I ain"t been around to long but I"ve been around long enough to see that capitalism works. The only person it doesn"t work for is the lazy man.

According to the Brookings Institute the three things poor teens need to succeed in life are number one get job number two get through high school and finally don't marry too early.
