In America you are given the opportunity to rise on your own bootstraps. Achieve success and you are rewarded.
Failure? Well there is no room for that. If you fail you need to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and try again.
Try and tell that to justifiably angry Americans in the wake of recent events. Yes, if you are a football coach in America, Britain, or Europe and you compile a losing record you will be fired. After all, winning was a condition precedent to being hired.
Remember all these folks at the top of the corporate ladder and how hard they used to hurl charges of socialism at anyone wanting to regulate their activities? Remember how this charge would be leveled if a progressive president sought to achieve a safety net?
Socialism was the immediate cry! Get out there in the business world, roll up your sleeves, and either sink or swim. If you sink this time spit out the water and try again. Maybe next time you will swim and success will be the result.
