Why We Love Capitalism So Much

Looking over the Forbes' list of Arizona billionaires we find a guy who made his money selling cheap tires, (bits of which you can often see dotting the freeway on your morning commute); a guy who made his money selling billboards, (which are considered public art in these parts); a guy who made his money the Koch brothers' way, (he inherited it); and last, and certainly least, a father and son team who owe their billions, for both are indeed billionaires, to government backed student loans, (these loans help students attend their "university", which is a university in the same way Elvis was a black belt).

Let me repeat that: government backed student loans have made these guys billionaires. Wow. Is this a great country, or what?
