“We celebrate success.” Absolutely! But…..

Last night Mitt Romney said, “In America, we celebrate success, we don’t apologize for success.”

I’m down with that. It is absolutely true.

However, the problem arises when “success” is achieved via corporate welfare, corporatist protectionism and political favors to the politically connected.

That’s not real success. That is theft.

That is what, I think, the Occupy people are pointing out. They fail, however, when they concluded that EVERYBODY should get government favors. The answer, of course, is that the government should stay the hell out of the favor granting business.
