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

"We need to ask some very tough questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, it's not enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff
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.
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?
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.
