As with much in life, and on this blog, it depends on your point of view.
In this country, is there any private property? Elizabeth Warren seems to think that all wealth flows from the government and consequently all goods derived from that, our own labor, must be at the disposal of that government. Stalin thought the same thing. To justify this wealth redistribution she blabbers on about “a Social Contract”. This, in her mind, trumps individual rights. Well, nowhere in this country does anyone pledge allegiance to the social contract and the income redistribution for which it stands.
The Real Price of Made in China Just found this bloggers site and I’m adding it to my blogroll, excellent.
After the fire, we re-built and of course had to re-stock and furnish the new house. With a lot of insurance money in hand we went shopping. Six years later, over a third of the “made in China” dishes, pans, chairs and whatever have broke or are looking very shoddy.

Get a gun, get a gun for your children’s sake, get a gun to protect yourself and your family and never give it up. Don’t give it up to threats of attackers. Don’t give it up to threats of the police.

Vote against any politician who wants to curtail your right to self-defense, IN ANY WAY.

“Economists said taxing private property worth an estimated 400 billion euros by an average 4 euros per square meter is expected to weigh on the economy, deepening the recession by up to half a percentage point.”
Still don’t know if the tax is for just the structure or the land. If for the house and if my house was in Greece (I’d sell the snow thrower) then I would get a charge of 744 euros on my electric bill. The Greek government is slapping the tax on the electric bill because the federal tax system is so corrupt and inefficient. If you don’t pay, you lose your power.
