Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Ricochet contributor and WIBC host Tony Katz was bashed by a listener on Facebook who in rude fashion asked, “what do you stand for?” As usual, Tony responded in epic fashion. Here’s an excerpt:
I’m in favor of making sure that I don’t have anybody else tell me how to live my life outside of my home. I stand for capitalism. Why? Capitalism is better. Capitalism creates wealth. Capitalism creates opportunity, and capitalism creates freedom.
I’m for the ability to smoke a cigar in my backyard without worrying whether or not the smoke wafts your way. I’m in favor of red meat — and a whole bunch of it — and I want it cooked medium-rare. Don’t give me this well-done horse crap. A well-done steak is an abomination before the Lord!
What am I for? I’m for craft beer, I’m for scotch, I’m for good sex with people you love, and I’m for making sure that people can walk away from those they don’t love.
What am I for? Are you kidding? I’m for the American dream and achieving it. I’m living proof, baby! I’m it. I’m the guy who lost it all. I’m the guy who didn’t have a direction in the world, couldn’t pay the bills, but then said, “I’m going to give it a try.”
I made my mistakes and I failed, and I picked my ass up and I got started again. I never once said to the government, “save me.”
With that platform, if the GOP does crack up, I’m joining whatever party Tony creates. Listen to the rant below:
