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.

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations. Here’s some random noise from anti-Trump, anti-free speech, anti-American Twitter… https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1352735841366335488 https://twitter.com/cabot_phillips/status/1352734530524729344 https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352723083300401152 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1352752362604146689 https://twitter.com/WSJ/status/1349493316468023303

AOC: I Didn’t Attend Inauguration Because I Didn’t ‘Feel Safe’ Around Republicans

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
