Smug Liberal Knocks Guy’s New Corvette

A new Chevrolet Corvette is one sign that you’ve made it, but it made one owner the target of a success-hating liberal.

Thankfully, this guy had a brilliant comeback that he managed to share with everyone on social media. Now, two years after Tom Nicholson’s story first went viral, it’s a good time to look back on one of the most amazing examples of owning a snotty Liberal that I’ve seen.

There’s no way of knowing if this anecdote is literally true, but the lesson it teaches is certainly true.

“A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost,” Nicholson wrote.

“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 who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore,” he continued.

“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.”

“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.”

However, he did know the import of the question he was asked — and what it said about the guy in the story who asked it. “That’s the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality,” he wrote.

“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.

“Capitalism is freely giving your money in exchange for something of value,” he continued.

The fact that we’ve seen the zombie-like resurrection of socialism as a legitimate form of economics. While its tenets may be more nuanced than the example Mr. Nicholson gave us, it can still be reduced to this: How dare you own stuff other people don’t have?
