Has a first-half-of-Atlas Shrugges ring to it.
Why does Obama only want to talk about taxes when it comes to the deficit?
He never mentions the possibility of spending less.
BTW - no amount of taxes is ever going to match his obsessive need to spend.
Especially when the spending is just a money laundering system to funnel money back to him.
This was the absolute dumbest thing any politician has ever said.
It's pretty close to Clinton's analyzing the definition of is.
Obama thinks rich people giving back to the community and taxes are the same thing.
Here is the gist of what he said:
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” he said. “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
Read that carefully, people. If you own a business you didn't build it. Your smart idea and hard work didn't do it. Every tangential, distantly related factor in your life (i.e. your 2nd grade teacher, roads and bridges, George Washington, etc.) played a huge role in it. Notice that the factors he mentions are all government entities. This is ludicrous. I hope this sound/video bite shows up in Romney ads. It's priceless.
Also note that the GOVERNMENT only allows you to thrive as a businessperson.
While I'm glad that Obama agrees that Al Gore didn't invent the internet, the internet was not invented so companies could make money off it. Originally it was a network of computers allowing Defense Department scientists a method of exchanging data.
Actually it can be argued (and I did in a paper for a graduate IT course) that Samuel F.B. Morse privately invented the internet in the 1840's.
He created an electrically energised data transmission system based upon a material medium (copper wire) as the transmission hardware which used a Binary Coded Language (International Morse Code) as the transmission software.
He did receive a congressional grant but it was his invention not the governments.
Sorry Al!! Sam beat you to it by over a century.
Notice also that he gave God the credit.
Because he's trying to destroy, not fix.
What does it matter and what should we expect as we are all totally depraved anyway.
He can't help himself.
He has no concept or understanding of what it takes for a person to invest their life savings, mortgage everything they own and then work 70-80 hours a week for years to make a business a success.
All he understands is that he wants to penalize them for their hard work and give their money to non productive bottom feeders, of which he has always been one.
Take a line out of context and you can make it say anything you want it to say.
Bold words are mine for emphasis.
CTB actually said something worthwhile & believable.
Now let's wait and see if he practices this new-found knowledge!!???:sleep::sleep::sleep:
Let's examine Obama's remarks one sentence at a time.
This is true. The statement is so generic it must be true. But successful business people don't think of help "along the line" as being what Obama describes. Successful business people give credit to mentors that helped them in their specific business endeavor, or else give credit to investors, or else to family members that encouraged them to follow their dreams of owning a business.
There was a great teacher somewhere in everyone's life. But this teacher is probably not responsible for instilling the entrepreneurial spirit in someone. Note that teachers are government employees.
So we are going to praise the founding fathers because the Apple iPod has been successful? Notice that the creators of the American system are government people.
Well, duh. BTW, it's not an investment it's taxing the citizens and spending the money for the greater good. Nobody gets inspiration for creating a new product by contemplating how wonderful the interstate highway system is. Notice again that Obama is giving credit to a government program.
Well, e-x-c-u-u-u-u-s-e me, but I've got a business, and yes, I built it.
Must be those elves that come out when I'm sleeping.
The internet wasn't originally conceived for commerce. But someone had a brilliant idea to adapt a government run entity for profit.
Really, this whole "it takes a government to be successful" is sickening. Obama ought to be ashamed at himself.
I heard the recording of this speech, and the crowd was going wild. That shows exactly who Obama appeals to, folks who think they are victims. They think all rich people inherited their wealth, or were members of the "good ol' boy society", or just got lucky. These folks constantly feel sorry for themselves and blame everyone but themselves for their lack of success in life.
And Obama is telling them it is right to rob the rich and give to the poor. He is the modern day Robin Hood.
Has a ring to it, doesn't it?
:thumbsup: He's never started a business, nevertheless managed a lemonade stand. Duh....
Who else would know that better than you...
Since it is your standard operating procedure. :laugh:
Nothing was taken out of context. To suggest such is a bald face lie.
No CTB it is not a bald-faced lie. Read the quote you posted:
CTB, Your <edited - LE "obama"> has swilled at the taxpayers trough all his life. He is a Marxist. Joe the Plumber was smart enough to understand that 4 years ago. Now if you are a Socialist and want to swill at the taxpayer trough like Obama then "fess up.
This all boils down to the fact that the government never created one penny of wealth. Then the government (Obama) spends money on a bailout or making a job, the money was handed to them on a silver platter called tax dollars.
When a citizen starts a business, unless he or she is from a rich family, they are risking usually everything they have to get the resources to even start a business. It takes guts, leadership, foresight, and a vision to even have a chance of success. Add to that patience, determination, and hard work. Starting a small business is not for the faint at heart or constant worriers.
These people realize this is the engine that creates prosperity for all of us. It is the ultimate irony that the government that does not know how to manage anything, puts up roadblock after roadblock to those trying to make a go of an idea to make a profit.
Obama is already accusing Romney of shipping jobs overseas. Why do jobs get shipped overseas? Because of stupid federal, state, and local regulations that drain the life blood out of a business.
