A Law of Nature: Universal Demand Law
  A very interesting law of nature. It explains why all things living respond very favorably to varying forms of demands made upon them. This law also explains why all things living respond very disappointingly to most forms of socialism by reducing or eliminating demands made upon them. Well intentioned benevolence of reducing demands on people and other life forms has often very disappointing and unanticipated outcomes.

Funny emails we receive from time to time.

Jim Fiore, another brilliant example of an ignorant
