Kids love capitalism

I was bottling my homemade wine last night and Junior was watching. She seems to like watching the corking process. And she says to me you know, you could probably make money by selling that. I said I probably could but that’s illegal and it’s just for your mom and I. She then asked why it was illegal. And I told her about alcohol laws and how they were stupid. At seven, she then says So, you can’t just make stuff and sell it? I said to her that if you did, you’d be breaking the law. After a few seconds, she says that’s stupid. I tell her that she’s right.

I was proud.

    I’m not sure they make wookiee suits in kids’ sizes.

    Just don’t tell her why the upstairs bath tub is being used for the insidious Sudafed-to-meth project.

  4. comatus Says:

    Well you are setting a poor example. You should have been objective, so to speak, said “It’s just for your Mom and me.”

    Isn’t it amazing how children get instinctively what politicians never get . . . unless they’re bribed, of course.

  6. JKB Says:

    This is why I love the “end capitalism” theme of so many on the Left. In the absence of coercive government, capitalism is the preferred economic form. With a small, limited government that enforces strong property laws, everyone can enjoy their capitalism without having an army of Capos or occasionally going to the mattresses.

    A little government goes a long way and more is almost never better.

    Of course, freedom is a natural thing, but kids will grow up and learn not to vote for freedom and be taught that those who advocate it are “radical”, “extreme” and “dangerous”.

    Let’s see here:
    1. Lives in Tennessee.
    2. Makes own alcoholic beverages.
    3. Raises child to abjure government limitations on capitalistic production.

    Prediction: Child is a future moonshiner?

    Ah. Popcorn Sutton. More than one of my ancestors was involved with him and his “business”.

    Fuck that noise! Meth to Sudafed! Thanks to the War on Drugs you can actually GET Meth, but its easy to be SOL with thumping sinus headache after the pharmacy monkey goes home for the day.

    Mookie the Meth Dealer will even make a delivery to you house or the local park!

    Oh, they’d make Wookiee suits in childrens’ sizes, but, you know, you can’t just make stuff and sell it.

  13. Drake Says:

    The kid-sized suits are Ewoks, which nobody wants.

  14. CounterClockWise Says:

    JKB, please don’t confuse capitalism with the free market — the terms are not interchangeable. While I’m pet peeving it’s wine for your mom and me, not for mom and I.

    And yes I belong to the People’s Front of Judea, not the Judean People’s Front.

    Mr. Evilwrench gets my vote for winning the internets for today!

  16. CeeDub Says:

    You must have been so very, very proud. I know I’d have been.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
