The virtues of capitalism...

I've asked on occassion - why don't we run our households based on the free market and capitalism? Instead we run our families via that evil socialism... Bill Maher has a great piece here about how another virtuous institution of capitalism - NFL Football - which is likewise based on that evil of all evils, an excerpt:

"That's right, for all the F-15 flyovers and flag waving, football is our most successful sport because the NFL takes money from the rich teams and gives it to the poor teams... just like President Obama wants to do with his secret army of ACORN volunteers. Green Bay, Wisconsin has a population of 100,000. Yet this sleepy little town on the banks of the Fuck-if-I-know River has just as much of a chance of making it to the Super Bowl as the New York Jets - who next year need to just shut the hell up and play."
