“Capitalism is a social system based on the principle of individual rights. Politically, it is the system of laissez-faire (freedom). Legally it is a system of objective laws (rule of law as opposed to rule of man). Economically, when such freedom is applied to the sphere of production its result is the free-market.”

Bill Gross: Economic inequality threatens capitalism READ MORE

Capitalism is an economic system in which trade, industry, and the means of production are largely or entirely privately owned and operated for profit. READ MORE

Before his nomination, Warren G. Harding declared, "America's present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but adjustment; not surgery, but serenity; not the dramatic, but the dispassionate; not experiment, but equipoise; not submergence in internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality.”

ADVERTISING & MARKETING

"THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADVERTISING AND MARKETING!!!"

Let the slideshow begin...

Slide #1: You see a gorgeous lass at a party. You go up to her and say: "I'm a fantastic guy." That's called DIRECT MARKETING.

ad4
Slide #2: You're at a party with a bunch of mates and see a gorgeous lass. One of your friends goes up to her and, pointing at you, says: "See yer man there? He's a fantastic guy." Now that's called ADVERTISING.

Slide #3: You see a gorgeous lass at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day you call and say: "Hi, I'm a fantastic guy let’s go out." That's called TELEMARKETING.

ad5
Slide #4: You're at a party and see a gorgeous lass. You get up and straighten your tie. You walk up to her and pour her a drink. You open the door for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her a lift, and then say: "Oh, by the way, I'm a fantastic gentleman." That's called PUBLIC RELATIONS.

Slide #5: Finally, you're at a party and see a gorgeous lass. She walks up to you and says, "I hear you're a really fantastic guy." That's something called BRAND RECOGNITION.

Public Health Museum of Colonial Williamsburg

An insanely good time:: “A two-story brick institution south of Francis Street, Williamsburg's public hospital was founded at the urging of Governor Francis Fauquier (pronounced "Fau-keer"). Like many men of the 18th-century Enlightenment, Fauquier believed science could be employed to cure "persons who are so unhappy as to be deprived of their reason." READ MORE

Linda and I just happened to stumble upon this museum on our way to the larger museums housed beyond the entrance. The DeWitt Wallace
Decorative Arts Museum & The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum

This hospital museum tells in a simple, and meaningful way the trials of caring for the mental illness during a time when little was really known about such a disease.

“The building housed 24 cells, all designed for the security and isolation of their occupants. Each cell had a stout door with a barred window that looked on a dim central passage, a mattress, a chamber pot, and an iron ring in the wall to which the patient's wrist or leg fetters were attached.”

“TREATMENTS OF THE TIME” By our standards, treatment was crude, aggressive and abusive. Powerful drugs were used to evacuate the bowels, induce constipation or cause vomiting. Other treatments included blistering salves, restraining devices such as manacles and the strait waistcoat or straitjacket, a plunge bath or dunking chair, a small electricity machine to administer shocks, scarificators [scalpel-like devises for bloodletting] and cups for bleeding.  Sometimes obstreperous patients were bound to chairs to quiet them.  Many doctors thought that a certain amount of intimidation would induce patients to reconsider their ways. On the positive side, inmates were fed, clothed and allowed time in the exercise yard -- also known as the “mad yard” – READ MORE The Madhouse of Colonial Williamsburg: An Interview With Shomer Zwelling (this is a really good link)………………………………………………………..  After all this you are probably hungry so take the time to stop at:::
