The Three Fundamental Rules of Progressivism
Dec 26th, 2016 by kids4biz


Progressive strategy can be captured in three fundamental rules:

  1. Aggressively promote Socialist policies as the cure for all of society’s ills
  2. Demonize all opposition with personal attacks in the media and the culture at large
  3. Blame Capitalism when the policies fail miserably and return to step #1

Memorize them, pass them on to your children, find them at work throughout history and observe them in action as Progressives scramble to regain power.

Progressives have nothing else to offer America but divisiveness and pain.

Michael Malgeri is the creator of the “Johnny Profit” series of children’s books, which teaches young people about Capitalism. He authored H.R.422, a Congressional Resolution that creates awareness of the superiority of Capitalism as an economic model. He’s also involved in projects that spread Capitalist ideas to the young people of Africa. Please visit his website at www.Kids4biz.com 

“Crony-Capitalism” – an Oxymoron
Sep 3rd, 2011 by kids4biz

Conservatives ought to rethink their use of the phrase “Crony Capitalism” because it plays into the hand of the left. Fundamentally, it’s an oxymoron and while that speech form is  OK in a certain context, it shouldn’t be used to hurt one’s very own goals. “Cronyism”, in the political context, is the opposite of “laissez-faire” and Capitalism is by definition “laissez-faire Capitalism”.

When someone mentions “Crony Capitalism” in the presence of a Conservative, the reaction should be, “there’s no such thing.” If a person or business is truly practicing Capitalism, cronyism is anathema. When Capitalists resort to cronyism they’ve abandoned their core Capitalistic principles (and morals) and have become pull-peddlers. Such behavior is  the M.O. of Keynesians and Socialists, who rely on government intervention as their dominant theory and practice.

Capitalism is pure, cronyism is corrupt. “Crony Capitalism” is a  commingling of corruption with purity, which is the M.O. of the left.

The Dunce Cap
Apr 22nd, 2011 by kids4biz

One of the reasons I enjoy working out in the morning is because on occasion, a kid drops by. Invariably I get a story and a good chuckle out of the visit.

The ritual begins when one of our two saunters in to the “man cave” to find me robotically stepping and watching TV with a set of 1960s NASA-like headphones.

“What’s up?” I said as my daughter appeared with a small orange soccer cone on her head.

She smiled and said, “Nothin’” as if her new headgear was in fashion.

“Where’d you get the dunce cap?”

“The WHAT! What’s a dumps cap?”

“A dunce cap. When I was in school, when kids were mischievous or DUMB, they’d have to sit in the corner on a stool and where the dunce cap. It looked just like what’s on your head.”

“Did you have to where a dunce cap?”

While I was “fun-loving” during my school years, I was far from a rabble rouser. My parents made certain any classroom infractions would be few and far between. However, I like to cultivate a little bit of a “bad-boy” image with my daughter so I looked away with a sly grin. After all, she needs to know what to look for in a man.

“Daaaaaaady….tell me the truuuuuuutthhhh.” She knows how to play along. Slowly looking skyward, I held the same cocky grin.

Done with my game she hopped of the couch and said, “Now I think you need a ‘dork’ cap,” and off she went.

So much for the bad boy image.

60 Minutes gets it wrong about Capitalism
Jan 19th, 2011 by kids4biz

Last night 60 minutes on CNBC ran a show about the sub-prime mortgage meltdown. In it an interviewee said, “the Capitalists almost brought down Capitalism.”

If there’s one thing the average Jane (and Joe) needs to understand if she wants to play a role in reviving America’s economy and spirit, it’s that Capitalism had nothing to do with the financial meltdown of 2008. Capitalism is synonymous with “Laissez-faire Capitalism,” which from Wikipedia, ” describes an environment in which transactions between private parties are free from state intervention, including restrictive regulations, taxes, tariffs and enforced monopolies.”

How in an arena with the likes of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the FDIC, government bailouts, the Community Reinvestment Act and the Federal Reserve does one find the temerity to call this Capitalism? The credit expansion caused by the Federal Reserve alone left the banking system to be leveraged well over 150 to 1. Is it any wonder why it would only take a 1% decrease in housing values, caused by sub-prime defaults, to severely impact the capital adequacy of the banking system and precipitate a much wider crisis?

Not once during the entire “60 minutes,” was there an indication that the government had ANY role in precipitating this crisis. In fact, the only time the government was mentioned as a player was when it swooped in as the hero with its bail outs.

Reporters, commentators and economic critics continue to trumpet this lie.  Given the simple facts about the definition of Capitalism and the government’s role during the crisis, it’s time the average Jane and Joe called them on it and demanded that they set the record straight. Capitalism is not the cause but indeed the way out of this mess.

Economic Child Abuse
Jan 2nd, 2011 by kids4biz

I believe it was Mark Levin who coined the phrase “Economic Child Abuse.” During an interview on the Sean Hannity show in April of 2009 he commented that our children will be compelled to work for generations for money that is already spent,  while their opportunities and liberties will be limited. He continued to correctly observe that our government was  gluttonous, stealing money from the future to pay for  benefits of today.

I agree with Mark and add that economic child abuse is compounded by the fact that our young people are mislead into believing that the way out of the mess is greater government involvement in both the economic system and our lives in general. Many of them graduate from high school and college versed in economic concepts that promote deficit spending and aggressive regulation. Socialism occupies the moral high ground in their minds with Capitalism viewed, at best, as a necessary evil despite the historical and contemporary evidence, which conspicuously proves otherwise.

Until we create general awareness of the fundamental principles of Capitalism and its record of economic and political achievements compared to Socialism and Keynesian-ism, we’ll be engaging in economic child abuse.
