    Default President Obama; thoughts on being successful in business.

    So what do you make of this part of a speech given to supporters? I think he is correct about the teaching part. Many people learn from others, the "teachers", even copy them to be successful, but it is still the individual that put's their financial, physical and emotional lives on the line, not the government. Interesting how he thinks and how little it seems he really seems to know.

    BTW Mr. President Al Gore invented the Internet not the government....

    There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me -- because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -- look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.) 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. 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. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

    So what is the asshats point here? Germans invented and developed a number of things during WWII. Is he suggesting that we should learn from them.
    Is he suggesting that bigger government will lead to bigger better inventions and developments and larger more successfull corporations? If so, why doesn't he just come right out and say it. NO BALLS?


    I cannot believe the American public is so ignorant that they elected this POS. Goes to show you just how many losers with there hands out there are in this country. Sad.

    Really? Bullshit! I believe that my success is majorly self driven. Although I have a lot of college behind me, they just didn't cut my head open and pour in the info. They didn't pass 400 level Agronomy courses for me. I did it. I was placed as manager on my family farm, and through hard work and perseverance, got it out of major debt in just 10 years. Now I am kicking ass and taking names. Nobody GAVE ME A DAMN THING!!!!

    He is simply appealing to the losers in the country and telling them the reason they are not more successfull is that the government is too LIMITED to be as much help as it could be, and the successfull people are the ones holding the government from reaching its full potential to help the less fortunate from becoming successfull.
    AND IT WORKS! On the brain dead lazy ass POS shit in this country. Ever notice the number of losers on this forum that buy into the CORPORATE CONSPRIACY bullshit? Ever look and the mental capacity of those losers?
    Losers in theis world love to play the blame game. Oblaimo himself is the perfect example.
    They are not being held down by their own lack if balls, ignorance, lazyness, or any other reason. They are unsuccessfull because the successfull people are to blame.

    I would ask him who? Who feels that way? Then I would provide facts on what those who disagree with him actually do to help society as oppossed to what those who hate success such as himself actually do

    Maybe it's a good thing he keeps playing the pied piper to the unsuccesful because as he is doing that, it seems like he is loosing some of his base.

    Major Obama Donor R Donahue Peebles Calls Out President Obama For Class Warfare Rhetoric | TheBlaze.com

    Fort instance, Millionaire developer R. Donahue Peebles -– a 52-year-old D.C. native whose company website touts The Peebles Corp. as “the country’s largest African Americanreal estate development company,” is a top fundraiser for President Barack Obama…raising between $100K and $200K for this reelection.

    He became outraged when he received a letter from the DNC mocking Romney's success. The guy says, we don't get up evey day thinking how can we screw someone.


    I’m so tired of hearing that the rich are not paying their fair share of taxes. Yeah we are,” Peebles said. “The super vast majority of wealthy Americans do not wake up every day and say, ‘Let’s see how we can pay less than our fair share of taxes.’ They say, ‘We’re going to follow the law and we’re going to hire some good accountants to tellus how to do it. And we’re going to pay no more or no less than ourfair share.’”So to say that wealthy individuals are not paying their fair is unfair and delusional,” he said. “So what should be said is that the wealthy Americans should have their tax rates raised because we need more money. Now by the way, if they got all these tax raises it still wouldn’t put a dent in the national debt
    Like he said,why wouldn't Americans want someone succesful to be President? Maybe they should put a homeless guy up on the D ticket instead of Obummer.

    Obummer is always talking about education. Let's teach the young hardworking honor students what the obummer ideology really is. Let's start giving away a letter grade to all those kids who are flunking. I think we need to wake up young America. Why wait till someone has reached their success financially to start criticizing success and taking from those who are successful. Why not start criticizing the honor students and begin stripping them of a letter grade to give those kids who dont even show up for school. We could just teach them all to fail since obummer hates success.

    The arrogance of that statement really bugged the shit out of me since I am a manufacturer. He is correct that I don't build that. While in the beginning, before we had any employees, it was indeed us building it. But now, I only work in production when it's really busy and we start getting behind. Maybe a few times a year. Now my employees build that. And I think they are even more pissed than I am by suggesting the government is doing it and not them.

    He's not really appealing to blue collar workers now is he? Wonder how the major unions will feel about him taking credit for their work.


    While I'm not doing the actual "building" much anymore, I did, in fact, BUILD this company.


    Fucking prick.....

    Well, that certainly confirms that O is about as clueless as is humanly possible.

    Default "the communist in chief"

    I will get a lot of flack, but I don't give a shit. This fraud president is showing his belief in "collectivism" which is key to communist doctrine. Individualism is not buliding business small or large, its government participation that is responsible. I welcome the fact that he himself is showing his true beliefs, because only a few in the media have the guts to see him for what he really is. I hope the voters see through his lies and criminal behaviour, and fire the bastard.

    I didn't get here on my own? Really? Here's a statement made by a man who has never as much as run a lemonade stand.

    If I didn't get here on my own, who went to school and passed the tests? Who passes the state license exams? Who paid for the business licenses? Who paid for the facilities? Who bought the equipment? Who hired the employees? Who bore the burden of payroll, insurance, taxes and accounting? Who was it that paid to purchase, service and repair all the operational equipment over the years. Who stayed up long hours bidding new work? Who did the take-offs, ordered the materials and delivered the equipment for existing work. Who established the marketing plan? Who put up the websites, pays the bills and, God-Forbid, answers the frivolous law suits? I can't recall anyone else doing that for me. Of course, I'm grateful for customers who partook of my services but it's my job to keep them happy since I have plenty of competitors ready to take over.

    This president couldn't possibly be more wrong about business owners. He couldn't possibly be more out of touch nor could he be less qualified to speak on such a topic as business ownership.

    As noted in my other post, the DUMB FUCK in the White House doesn't know who PAID for the roads.

    liberals are IDIOTS
    "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though" President Barack Obama.

    Liberals just chose to ignore relevant information about the world they live in, and then call themselves sophisticated for having chosen to be more stupid than God made them.
