    Do you have a degree? You must Think that's some kind of accomplishment I'm assuming.....

    Let me tell you this: YOU DIDN'T EARN THAT DEGREE. YOU DIDN'T DO THAT. SOMEONE ELSE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EARNING THAT DEGREE FOR YOU.

    Right?

    He's trying to take credit where credit isn't due. And yes he did say it. He said, "if you own a business, you didn't build that". He then went on to explain that businesses only exist because there was some teacher some where that gave that business owner part of their education. He also tried to explain that businesses wouldn't be successful without roads and bridges! WHICH BY THE WAY, THE BUSINESS IS ALSO PAYING TAXES TO HAVE THE DAMN ROADS AND BRIDGES BUILT TOO!!!!!

    I'm also paying property taxes, which go to pay for roads and bridges. The government didn't "pay" for those things. They taxed ME FIRST, along with a lot of other people, in order to build the damn road or bridge.

    Geez, you ignorant liberals just hate success is all. And you didn't even attempt to answer the meaningful questions. Why should YOU deserve ANY of my profits? Why should any other person deserve to share MY profits from MY business? Because they helped pay for the road outside? Well, so did I Mr. Manchild President. I pay taxes too! So does my business! He acts like the road was paved "just for me and my business" as some sort of gift to me. Wrong. I paid for it too. I also pay taxes THAT PAY TEACHERS THEIR SALARIES!!!!

    Ignorant....like I said. And you don't even know the meaning of the word. But just for fun, tell me, do you own a business????

    he was talking about bridges & roads....NOT the businesses that the owners hold.

    come on now, you're being dishonest about his full quote.

    Perfect. We can agree that Obama is extremely intelligent. Since his is so intelligent and educated, with such a profound mastery of the English language, we can deduce that when he said "You didn't build that," the antecendent he was referring to when he said "that" was NOT the roads and bridges. If he were referring to roads and bridges, proper usage would dictate that he would have said "You didn't build THEM." Since he said you didn't build "that," the antecedent must have been "business."

    The claim that this statement was taken out of context, then, has much less merit.

    Businesses make money. They also sit on property.

    Now, listen up. Money is taxed, goes to government, and roads and bridges get built. Property is also taxed, which goes to government, and teachers get paid.

    So, people like you, who probably don't own a business, and probably don't own a substantial amount of property, get the same services from roads, bridges, and teachers, but you are far less responsible for paying for those things.

    Think about that next time you and your ignorant Man Child President want to tell business owners they didn't build their businesses. Tell you one more thing, they didn't just build their businesses, they built the damn country, and Government does NOTHING but confiscate their wealth.

    Drilling moratoriums helping build the oil and gas industry? How bout the 4000 new regulations on the oil and gas industry? Helping build those businesses? Liberals support a little thing called "wind-fall profit taxes". Do those help build a business? Please.....don't be ignorant around me anymore. Go learn something about owning a business before you ever try to tell someone that they didn't build it.

    once again, you are being dishonest about Obama's quote.

    he wasn't saying that business owners didn't build their businesses. he's saying they didn't build the roads & bridges.

    is this the only way you can debate this issue, by being dishonest about Obama's actual statement?

    No, I'm not. I took him in Full context. "if you own a business, you didn't build that." I read the entire comment surrounding that too. Let me educate you man, if he was talking about roads and bridges, you and Man CHild need to learn one thing real quick; roads and bridges are the result of businesses, not the other way around.

    If the country consisted of men like you and Obama, there wouldn't be enough tax money to pay for anything, much less a road or a bridge, or a school, or a teacher's salary, or welfare, or unemployment, or lavish Hawaiian retreats for government officials, or hookers for the secret service men, etc.....Because in order for the government to have a dime to spend on a road or a bridge, they first have to confiscate that dime from either an individual or a business who created something OUTSIDE AND INDEPENDENTLY OF GOVERNMENT.
