PARADIGM

“Spending” is when you buy your kids a Monopoly Game.
“Investment” is teaching them to put Houses on Boardwalk and Park Place.
“Economics” is watching them learn they can sell the $200 house for $100 so they can ‘Stay in the Game”.

So true! If only every child today, epically in America was taught these things. BTW, Thanks for your post to my blog!

Stephen Bulletholes!!!
I just read the Peace Plan, and when I got to that line in the post, I straightened up!

I think your Peace Plan is most plausible, and I am in full agreement. I am armed and ready, with a full array of wooden spoons, starched apron tied tight, and arms akimbo...
