Government v. business 12

A few days ago Obama told a crowd in Roanoke, Va., “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

In Obama’s phrase book, “somebody else” means the government.

Here’s the opposite opinion.

    Ms Becker,
    I did not post the comment “You are a tool”. I do not recall posting it and it does not appear in my Disqus log. I think I got under someone’s skin and they are trying to cause discord.

      Thank you, rogerinflorida, for letting me know that you didn’t post the remark. I thought it was not the sort of thing you usually post. I suspect the hand behind it is the same as the one behind  “JJ McHenry”. I shall now remove it.

    Our suspicion is that “JJ McHenry” is a non-person, a program placing pointless abuse at websites the programmer doesn’t like. There were many more from the same source. We eliminated them, but left the only two which our bona fide commenters had replied to, as we didn’t want to leave their replies floating. 

    We suggest our readers take no more notice of “JJ MacHenry” under this post. 

  •  I like how JJ McHenry calls us fools, but can’t elaborate. Typical troll.

    You are a bunch of fools

      So, you think socialism is a good thing, I presume.

     Obama’s arrogance truly is astounding!

    I ask myself if Obama is being serious when he says things like this. How can anyone be so obtuse, if he believes what he says then it is clear that he has absolutely no idea how wealth is created. It is more likely however that statements like the one he made are actually triggered by a profound sense of resentment, at white people but particularly against successful white people. This man has, like most of his type, a huge chip on his shoulder.
    He was elected President, and may well be re-elected, how can anybody be optimistic about the future of this country.

      You are an idiot of the highest order
