I notice none of these say where the cows came from in the first place.

Hah! That illustrates a fundamental problem with your capitalism model -- never mind that the whole thing is a straw man because it takes the worst case scenario of the other systems and compares it to the best case scenario of capitalism: in your model, only those who already have wealth have the means to acquire more wealth.

Oh, it's not my model - it was my fortune cookie last night when I logged on to my unix box.

Not when your neighbor has no cows because he was too lazy to feed them. (And for the record, in all the time I've lived in my house, I've NEVER seen my neighbor feed his cows.)

Republicans: Sell the cows, buy a horse, then complain that you don't have any milk.

My cows died because I couldn't buy health insurance for them *nod*
