Ain’t nuthin’ cooler than an Old Dog learning New Tricks

The Free Enterprise System, much maligned, and chronically under attack from Radical Left Wing Saul Alinsky clones, (who know better than ordinary plebs like you and I) is probably much under appreciated. Put it this way, what I’ve seen of Socialism, never mind Communism, convinces me that American voters today take a lot for granted. Too much. Voting in “Experimenters “, who want to radically “transform ” something that worked tolerably well for a long time, into a vaguely defined Utopian Paradise, is risky at best. Foolhardy at worst. Seems Big Government gets to tax & spend, interferes dramatically with the workings of the Free Enterprise System, and then, when it all goes truly pear shaped, guess who gets the blame?? Yep, the Free Enterprise System. Those rotten capitalists.

The point is that there is an unavoidable human cost associated with our Market Economy. People get laid off. Their skills are no longer required. They can’t get another job. They can’t pay their mortgages. They lose their cars. Followed by their self respect. I’ve seen people like that devastated. Then the Guilt Monster sets in.

It’s therefore wonderful when you see an Old Dog cheerfully learning a whole new skill. The Marketing Executive who becomes a plumber. And laughs about it. The Computer Consultant who serves Big Mac Cheeseburgers. The unemployed Helicopter Pilot who is driving a truck. With a philosophical shrug of the shoulders. Ride on, never quit.

Cool dudes.
