He is the author of Community Capitalism: Pulling Capitalism Back From Its Own Abyss and an expert on current economic activities and how they are affecting the common citizen.There's a reason greed is one of the seven deadly sins - it has the power to destroy individuals, communities, institutions, and entire nations, says Mr. Qualls, and it is threatening to do so even now.His Community Capitalism: Pulling Capitalism Back from Its Own Abyss is a comprehensive, 332-page book described as "Every American's Bitch List". It details the problems confronting capitalism that threaten to destroy the economic well-being of the U.S., its allies, and associates, and expresses the anger of the American public at the shenanigans going on in business and finance.In this book Mr. Qualls gives voice to all the people in the Western World who are utterly, angrily exasperated with the way the economy and sociable life are being wrecked by wantons, gamblers and wastrels, yet who must remain quiet, silently feeding that frustration because of fear of losing their jobs if they speak out.The Community Capitalism book is divided into three sections, each with a specific purpose:The first section gives information on basic economics and other vital concepts and includes a primer on money, explaining what it is, where it comes from, and how it derives its value.The second section explains stocks, bonds, and derivatives, covering such hot-button topics as real estate, insurance, health care, politics, education, and unions; this section also details the extensive problems and huge costs of the current mishandling of capitalism.The third section offers specific suggestions for rectifying these problems and carrying capitalism beyond them.
To proclaim to be righteous and support capitalism , you would be contradicting yourself. To be a revolutionary and support capitalism, is a contradiction. If you support capitalism, and are not in the process of changing the ways of the system, you might be an accomplice to murder. We will present the case.
I'm not a PHD! All I want is a chance to be a successful and happy musician. I think I have a great opportunity and I feel I can be whatever I want in America. I appreciate the fact that there are programs that will help me and others when we're down on our luck,(a lot of times due to our own decisions in life). I agree there is racism and prejudice etc. But that is not my number 1 obstacle. Capitalism says, hey create your opportunity, I'm an individual, I can be a star! Work hard, be flexible, win some battles, lose some battles! I can make it! Communism says we're all one, collectively we are whatever the collective or state says we are.I'm sure there's still racism and prejudice and only the state and who runs the state is the boss. Socialism is similar in practice if not the same idea. As I said, I'm just a regular guy, stimulating the thought process. So let's listen to a song and talk about it.

Hot Button Family,
In light of Black Friday madness, we will be discussing the demands of corporate America, and whether or not there is justification for stores to either open, or close, their businesses on recognized holidays. In addition, we will discuss the "career protester" and the infection these people use to manipulate the emotions of others for their own selfish anarchy.
We will discuss the following:
1. My Wal Mart Experience (The Expectation of Working in the Largest Retail Chain in America)
2. Why Corporate America should not be blamed for Black Friday madness
3. No, America does not believe you deserve $15.00 an hour if you can't count my change back correctly
4. Are these Protesters justified, and if so, what should be done?
5. What was your first job? Was it ever supposed to be a career?
This discussion is going to be Hottttttttttt!!!!!!!
