The Case for Capitalism

Ken Langone, Home Depot financier and billionaire. Put his name and money behind NYU’s Med School. And. Now has made it tuition free for all students. Something political gridlock could never get done.

Howard Schultz’ Starbucks gives tuition and health care coverage to all including even part-time employees. Better than Obama-care.

What the hell has the government done about mass shootings? Don’t wait for Congress to love its children more than its NRA money. So. The parents of the Sandy Hook victims are bringing legal suits against gun manufacturers for wrongful deaths by their assault products. Like successful litigation of the tobacco industry changed smoking laws.

Not this year. As everyone gathers, we’ll embrace krappy re-gifts, kitty kreamer, plastic Wal-Mart tree, snix snax. Dysfunctional family candle casts a warmer glow. That’s today. In a week, I’ll let you know. Seriously. Grateful for our blessings of the season. Especially this year.

Feliz cumpleaños, Anita Abuelita!

Jake’s tree is real. He’s lucky.
Ok, a little kranky.
