Am I in it for the Profit or the Prophet?

I'm growing more liberal with each passing day. This is not a good thing in my business. But WTF. I don't like my business anyway. I'd rather feed the poor than lobby politicians in support of government largesse to support businesses that assign more value to "profit" than to justice. The difficult thing to reconcile in this mix is that I'm definitely a capitalist...and least up to a point. Maybe that's the problem. I'm a socialist at heart but a capitalist at brain, though I do not think it appropriate to turn religion into a money-making endeavor.

And to complicate things even more, I am not a vegetarian but could support nibbling their fingers and toes in situations of severe famine and social unrest.

There may be no help for the likes of you. Just saying.

Hmph! And why not, Kathi D?

Because I happen to know more than just a little about accounting and investing, my real estate agent, who also happens to have known me since I was a teenager, calls me a "capitalist hippie". Maybe you're the same?
