The Wintery Knight teaches capitalism… using short video clips!

UPDATE: Welcome visitors from IMAO.us! Thanks for the link Harvey!

Have you ever heard an  American-Idol-watching Dummocrat approve of Obama plans to tax the rich? Watch this video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity (H/T Hot Air) and learn the facts you’ll need to defeat them in a debate.

Here are a few more videos from America’s golden age when everyone could explain why the country was founded, and why our free market capitalist economy was the envy of the world. (I stole these from IMAO.us)

Happy Friday!

UPDATE: I noticed that Dawn Eden had posted a serious post by Catholic Mark Shea about the different ways that Catholics and Evangelicals talk. Evangelicals are masculine and Catholics are feminine. Everybody knows that!

It’s funny to hear Catholics described like this, but it’s so true:

Similarly, Catholics should not dismiss Evangelicalism as simplistic chatter merely because Evangelicals tend to be more verbal about their faith. There is nothing noble or spiritual about the common lay Catholic’s inability to be always ready to give an account of the hope within us (cf. 1 Pet. 3:15).

But we Evangelicals also get whacked:

[1] Back in my Evangelical days, I saw a cartoon in The Wittenburg Door featuring an earnest Evangelical hunched over in prayer with eyes clamped shut, pleading, “Oh Lord, I just really worship you and I just really want to come before you and just really pray that you would just really take the words just and really out of my prayer vocabulary.” Not all spontaneous prayer is up to the glory of the task, and there is much wisdom in Catholics using the great and poetic prayers of the saints as their own.

It’s funny because it’s true!
