Capitalism For The Win: Elon Musk Makes Pledge to do What The Government in Michigan Failed to do

Published

Time and time again, leftists try to beat it into the heads of the masses that rich people and mega corporations are the source of all evil, the cause of what ails humanity, all while tweeting from their Apple iPhones.

Those of us who have a drop of common sense and can clearly see the basic universal facts of economics with clear vision recognize that capitalism is the only real solution to poverty and that the majority of our problems cannot be solved by the government, but by the free market.

A great example of this comes in the form of a recent pledge made by billionaire inventor and entrepreneur Elon Musk. Musk has promised to provide funding to fix the water of any home in Flint, Michigan that has levels that do not meet FDA requirements.

The free market at work, folks.

It seems there’s already a plan in place to repair this issue, so Flint is gladly going to take Musk up on his offer.

From CNN:

The deal requires Michigan to give Flint $87 million in state and federal funds so the city can replace lead and other problem water pipes that connect homes to the city’s main water line. Some of that — $20 million — comes from a $100 million Environmental Protection Agency grant awarded to upgrade Flint’s water system last week; $20 million more comes from a state match.

The state government must come up with an additional $47 million, the settlement says. Also, it must set aside a further $10 million in federal funds for potential cost overruns.

The city says it estimates pipes leading to 20,000 households need to be replaced, and it wants to complete this by the end of 2019. Pipes leading to nearly 800 homes have been replaced so far.

The deal says pipes leading to at least 6,000 households will be replaced by the end of 2017, with a further 6,000 done by the end of 2018.

Musk is using his fortune to improve the quality of life and health for other individuals, sharing his blessings with those who have not been fortunate to have the same level of success. This is what being wealthy is really all about.

The problem, of course, isn’t money. The problem is that some people make an idol out of riches and seek to horde them for themselves. Yes, contrary to what many conservatives may want to believe, these people do exist. However, they aren’t the vast majority of the top one percent in our country. Not by a long shot.

Most are like Musk, desiring to use the resources they have been given to improve the world around them and leave it a better place than it was when they arrived. That should be the goal of all Americans.

It must surely burn up Democrats to see a private corporation do what their big government ideals failed to accomplish.

Video Evidence Confirms CNN President Told Employees to Push Trump ‘Impeachment’ Stories

This…is CNN.

If you want to claim that your network is fair and balanced and you only report the facts, then the president of the network shouldn’t be caught on video telling employees to push impeachment stories regarding President Trump. Then again, CNN hasn’t been a reliable news source for a long while now and ratings drive that point home on a regular basis. James O’Keefe has unveiled what just might be his most jaw-dropping video to date. And CNN can’t be thrilled about it. After all, it exposes their anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias once and for all – and it comes straight from the head honcho. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F From Fox News: Undercover recordings made by an alleged ‘whistleblower’ capture CNN employees casually confirming the network’s anti-Trump bias and show company president Jeff Zucker telling top news executives to focus solely on impeachment even at the expense of other important news, according to the conservative activist group that posted the bombshell footage online. Project Veritas, whose founder, James O’Keefe, describes himself as a “guerrilla journalist” — built up the release on social media with an “#ExposeCNN” hashtag, and Monday published the first segment of what is billed as a multi-part series. The video features Cary Poarch, who claims he was a satellite uplink technician…

Discredited Steele Dossier Memos ‘Made Their Way Directly’ to Obama, Fusion GPS Founder Says

It’s 2016 all over again…

The Steele Dossier was bogus from the jump and everyone knew it. It was merely the Democrats’ first real attempt at doing what they could to discourage the American people from voting for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. Of course, Dems haven’t stopped doing everything they can to bring 45 down. It doesn’t matter that the economy is booming and unemployment numbers are at record lows. What matters is Trump = bad, and that’s never going to change. On Monday, some interesting news dropped from the founder of Fusion GPS. According to the founder, now-discredited Steele Dossier memos initially made their way to Barack Obama’s desk back in 2016. To some people, this is a big problem. To other people, men can grow their hair and and decide they are now women. BREAKING: In new book “Crime in Progress,” set for release next month, #Spygate archvillain Glenn Simpson reveals that he was first hired to investigate Trump in “the fall of 2015” and that memos from his now-discredited Steele dossier made their way directly “to President Obama” https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1183816527725940737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183816527725940737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Freport-fusion-gps-founder-reveals-steele-dossier-memos-made-it-all-the-way-to-president-obama%2F From Washington Examiner: Fusion GPS announced the November release date of a book on its 2016 investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, promising to shed new light on British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier about the future president. The Washington, D.C.-based opposition research firm’s book, announced Monday, is expected to come a few weeks after release of a report into the origins of the investigation into Trump and Russia, which has shadowed his presidency since taking office in January 2017. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is expected to cover allegations of abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the FBI and the Department of Justice — including the government’s reliance on Steele’s dossier to obtain surveillance warrants from the…
