Capitalism vs. Socialism: And The Winner Is…, Steve Forbes, Fox Business
CS Commentary: Fox Business did a survey of college students recently and almost none could define capitalism or socialism, though most chose the later over the former as the ideal system for society. We would have defined capitalism as: A mercantilist society where the price of goods is determined by supply and demand with minimal government interference. Here is the dictionary definition of the three primary terms:
cap·i·tal·ism: an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
“an era of free-market capitalism” · “private ownership is a key feature of capitalism”
so·cial·ism: a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
mer·can·til·ism: belief in the benefits of profitable trading; commercialism.
historical: the economic theory that trade generates wealth and is stimulated by the accumulation of profitable balances, which a government should encourage by means of protectionism.

Must Watch: Candace Owens Completely Demolishes Yet Another Democrat And His Inane Arguments (video, right below), The Ingraham Angle, Fox News
CS Commentary: ‘Inane’ means ‘silly, stupid, foolish,’ for anyone who thinks that might be a spelling mistake. The only thing wrong with this debate is that guests like this Democrat should not be allowed a national platform for their vacuous opinions, misinterpretation of the facts, and constant ad hominem responses in the face of convincing facts and logic. 24-hour news channels – like Fox News – have lowered the level of the debate in America by making celebrities out of these irrational, off-point pundits (to put it nicely). Yes, we have the right to free speech – no, that doesn’t mean that every foolish opinion is given a national platform. For Owens complete opening statement in the Congressional hearing, see below.

The Truth About Global Warming, Mark Levin, Fox News
CS Commentary: Global warning models are built on a ‘house of cards,’ – ‘they really don’t work.’ “Is weather getting worse?” “No.” This expert’s words, plus the view of many others. Americans are being manipulated by climate change advocates and the MSM. When will they wise up?

Quote: “The letter is a microcosm of : sound and fury, signifying nothing; an investigative process predicated on no criminal conduct, which generated crimes rather than solving one…So even Mueller conceded, through gritted teeth, that Barr’s letter was accurate. The diva was just worried about the media coverage…Under the circumstances, Mueller’s main job was to answer the obstruction question. He abdicated. Barr’s letter made that obvious. The press coverage elucidated it. This made Mueller very unhappy. So he wrote a letter whining about ‘context.’”

Quotes Of The Month:
“Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you. But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead. When clouds are heavy, the rains come down…Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest…Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another – or maybe both…” – King Solomon, Israel
