I like to spend my earnings on my yearnings.
That is my thought (note that is singular) on capitalism in a nutshell.
In case you are wondering, that was part of a long worded reply I left over at Pen of Jen reference her blog on outrageous and silly spending, see:
I know her heart was in the right place when she wrote that one, but I must say I just did not agree if only because at heart I love capitalism, and I love earning my keep, and I love doing with my earnings what I darned well please when I can afford to do so. Of course, I just did not agree when talking capitalism and my ability to earn and buy with my earnings as I please - I do agree with Jen that people sure do waste money. Yet, if they earned it, I guess that is their prerogative. I do agree more with her though that one should stay within their means (such as with credit card debt) and shucks I think maybe I did mention that but not clearly enough in my long worded reply on her blog. Oh well, Jen when you see it here, well you'll understand I agreed with you more than I appeared to have done in my reply on your blog.
I love how that woman makes me think. Always a challenge to the little gray cells. If you want to read a thought provoking blog then visit her's at:
Someday, I am hopeful I will be able to visit her and her family on their farm in New Mexico (I think), and as far as I am concerned it would be money wisely spent. Of course, first I'll have to earn it before I can spend it. Did I say, I love capitalism? Yes, I do.
All the best,
