Classic cars feed the hungry

A guy looked at a Corvette the other day and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost."
I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.
It fed the trucking people who hauled it from the plant to the dealer and fed the people working at the dealership and their families.
BUT,… I have to admit, I guess I really don’t know how many people it fed.
That is the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality.
When you buy something, you put money in people’s pockets, and give them dignity for their skills.
When you give someone something for nothing, you rob them of their dignity and self worth.

- Good answer. I have a Niece who lives very near Bowling Green, Ky. Rural area. They have a Horse Farm. I have owned several Corvettes and seems like I trade them off some reason or another. Just me. I am now 77 and have slowed down very much since the wreck I was in, where a woman ran a Stop sign. Cruise On.
