"No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it." ~ Thomas Sowell
Tony Pivetta toils as a pension consultant in the greater Detroit area. As such he promotes retirement income security for the defined benefit plan participants of various and sundry woefully overtaxed, welfare-warfare burdened clients across the fruited plains of this increasingly crypto-fascist (well, increasingly fascist if decreasingly cryptic about it) land of ours. His fun-filled, action-packed career demands precision of thought, mathematical wizardry and fluency of expression. Tony lives with his wife and daughter in retro-hip, foreclosure-ridden Royal Oak, Michigan, where he pines for a bygone era in which baseball actively strove to maintain its integrity and continuity with the past. In his spare time he writes for libertarian websites, drawing dark parallels between the rise of publicly financed stadiums and the demise of both the Grand Old Game and the cause of American liberty.
