Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

Billionaires are bad, right?

from The Gray Area:

According to the news media and Democrat politicians, billionaires are bad (and it used to be millionaires too until they all became millionaires). So now, and since Presidential billionaire Donald Trump arrived, billionaires are the cause of everything bad in the world. Greedy, predatory, selfish, etc.

If that is true, why then is there an estimate of over $700M donated by Thursday to repair Notre Dame Cathedral?

Billionaires. Billionaire donations, that's why.

But, I thought they were awful people? Not so much. Just jealousy used as political bribery for votes. As a matter of fact, look around you on any given day and you will see the results of their philanthropy. Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, National Parks, Vanderbilt University, Duke University, and even whole towns like Williamsburg, Va.

Keep all that and more in mind next time you hear Democrat politicians and media talking heads slamming billionaires.

How about current era billionaires? Bill & Melinda Gates are trying to do great things with their money, too. Oh, of course, we recognize that, because they are well known leftists.

Bull hockey!

Billionaires share what they have, and when they are not asked to do so, because that is the culture of America. Or, at least it used to be. Now there are people who think that billionaires should give their money to the government, they can spend it better than you can.

A bigger falsehood has never been uttered.
