Let me explain something to you, and our ignorant President. And yes, he's ignorant when it comes to business, how they get started, and what it takes to make one successful.
While it is true that governments build roads, let me remind you that they built roads BECAUSE there were businesses that needed them. They build roads BECAUSE people are going to work. Businesses are not the result of roads and bridges, it's the exact opposite. Roads and bridges are the result of businesses, and the people they employ.
Get it straight. Teachers are the result of a society that values education, and they are PAID to do it. Schools make tons of money, BECAUSE THEY TOO ARE A BUSINESS. It takes a BUSINESS to hire that teacher.
He makes it sound as if the internet wouldn't exist without the government. Bull. It would still exist. It was the greatest invention in modern history, it would have still been developed. It existed BEFORE the government subsidized it's development. Oh, and btw, the government didn't invent the internet did they?
He has no idea what he's talking about. I didn't build my own business? That's news to me, because I don't see anyone else helping pay the bills around this office. I don't see anyone else investing 70 hours per week to increase my business. Liberals will argue, "well, if it weren't for your customers, your business wouldn't exist". True enough, but that doesn't make them responsible for my business. I provide a service and a product that people want and need. If it weren't for my business, they wouldn't get it. Or if it weren't for another business owner, they wouldn't get it. The door swings both ways Mr. President.
The reason I have customers, is because I have something the public wants. I risked a lot to start a business, and if it weren't for countless hours of hard work and smarts, the business would fail. So, don't sit there and tell me "I didn't build that". Of course I did. Ignorant Obama thinks that all a successful business requires is a bunch of people to buy something. Wrong. Or all a successful business requires is a person who had a good teacher in 8th grade. Wrong. Or all a successful business requires is a good road. Wrong. Like I said, he's ignorant. He's never owned a business, he's never been an entreprenuer, he's never experienced what it takes to start and operate a business.
Kick rocks man. Come out here in the real world where your income is earned by working and producing something. The only thing he produces is massive debt, burdensome regulations, higher taxes, federal mandates, and hot air like we've seen here. If his presidency were a business, they would have filed bankruptcy already, because I don't know of many "customers" who would buy his "products". For sale: tax increase. For sale: more regulations. For sale: trillions and trillions of dollars in new debt. Who's buying? Those people you see wasting paychecks on lottery tickets.
So NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, & CNN Headline news, all of these are not credible news sources either?
He wants to take the credit for peoples successes away from them, yet isn't it ironic the comment he made after the successes of Seal Team 6: "I got Bin Laden."
"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
Look at the wingnuts making up something the president didn't say and then getting all mad about it.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
