'Need' now means wanting someone else's money. 'Greed' means wanting to keep your own. 'Compassion' is when a politician arranges the transfer.'" - John Stossel
THAT is GREAT!
Shared it on Facebook.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind.
As Joseph Sobran put it: "'Need' now means wanting someone else's money. 'Greed' means wanting to keep your own. 'Compassion' is when a politician arranges the transfer.'"
Why didnt anyone talk like this last week?
Actually, the quote is from Joseph Sobran.
Gotta remember this one.
If you mean before the election, actually they did. This is from an October Stossel column and he is quoting Sobran from earlier than that. But if the takers who vote outnumber the makers who vote they could talk until they’re blue in the face and it wouldn’t do any good.
Unfortunately it was not just the takers that voted for Obama, it was the young adults with their heads filled with mush from public education. My niece didn’t say anything during the campaign but after the One won she posted a picture of Big Bird, no less, saying “whose out of a job now.B!@#$.
Wow she latched on to the really important issue of the election. Bet she feels so smart.
Are you my plural?
A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched. Proverbs 28:25 ESV
I shared it on Facebook, too! Love it!
Indeed. He says it at 2:55 to the end.
I miss Sobran. I didn’t agree with him on absolutely everything but he was still better than many conservatives today.
Ask a stupid person i.e. a Dem would they like someone who gave them a dollar whether it was stolen or not or the person who said they’d have to work for a dollar better. They’ll always pick the person that gives them the dollar. Like Rush said, you can’t defeat Santa Claus. Obama is the new Santa Claus.
And Joseph Sobran was quoting Chuck Norris. All good quotes come from Chuck Norris, he just let’s other people he likes say them.
“great” post; thanks
