    Default Obama " the person who started his company didn't make it happen Somebody else did"

    This will be the start of O's long journey down. Dumbest statement ever Made by the President OF the United States of America. I have run my own company for 8 years by myself 0 employees. We do hire temps to do the fullment. I have worked 5 24 hour straight days in the last three weeks. I have done very well at times, and done really bad at others. Digging out right now to try and make it work. My wife hasnt had a set amount paycheck from me in 18 years. Sometimes they can be really good, sometimes very small, and some times none at all. We have done this on our own good or bad. And for the president to tell me It wasnt because of me than who in the he'll was it?

    Why!!! Why!!!! why!!! Would anyone vote for a man who doesn't value the risk a man has to make so that others can have jobs!!!!

    We could very well be employing 70- 100 people in the next 3 months. We will go through a temp agency for all of them. We won't have any full time emplyees other than owners and family. The company will be giving bonuses based upon beating goals and by how efficient they are. I hope that our workers will work so good that they will be able to get large enough bounuses to pay for there health care or other items that they might need. If Obama was not trying to regulate and mandate everything to us Biz owners we would probably go the old route of hiring people and keeping them on as employees. I a job is to large or we get to big we will sub them out to larger companies.

    So no this Zombie your buddy O could very well be putting you into a position where you will only be able to work for a temp agency and hope that you are picked for the day.

    OBama "DUMBEST STATEMENT OF ALL TIME FROM A PRESIDENT".

    Agree with you HG, similar history with me, except I've gone the employee route, at one point 15. Not huge but ok for a micro business. Now however I have 2 and all helpers in the future will be temps or at most part time seasonal. I tried larger, too much government bs. Only time I made any real money was when I was little around 4-6 people. This president does not have a clue what is involved in creating something nor the hours and commitment required. Like I said in another thread, the only time he's likely had his hands dirty doing actual work is some ground breaking ceremony for a government sponsored business of some sort. That bs he spewed really woke a lot of folks up I think, as to just how clueless he is. Government does not create shit accept obstacles when it gets too large. And its way too large right now. There was business and trading long before there was government, and without business there would be no government. Business and workers pay government's salary, not the other way around as this president seems to think. Tax business out of business and guess what, no government because no one will be working to pay for it.

    Calm Down Rex! Obama was speaking about the total system...He is not saying you did not create your business!! He is saying that nobody, no business, operates in a vacuum!!!
    Rex Marine is a perfect example !!!
    Your business is a boating based business. Well, guess who built all the dams to form the lakes, maintains chanels, breakwaters,dredges, maintains recreational sites, makes and enforces rules and regulations that require boaters to buy saftey equipment, installs and maintains navigational aids, regulates fishing, builds and maintains bridges and infastructure to get to the boating areas, conducts boater rescues, and buys boats parts, equipment in millions annually??? Yep the government does all that.
    Rex Marine and all boating related industruies would not have nearly as good a business as you do with out all the governmant infastructure and government functions..

    Not my words but this guy nails the rightie hysteria on Obama 's commets:

    Wow. What a bunch of dolts. CAN NONE OF YOU READ?????

    “Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business. you didn’t build that. ”- Obama

    He’s not saying you didn’t build your business. He’s saying YOU DIDN’T BUILD THE ROADS (the infrastructure).

    Half of you know what he meant and are lying and the other half are just plain stupid.--- BRUCE

    Tell me if I'm wrong about you business Rex

    :
    Pay attention to something, Z. HappyG is a guy with 20 posts and just wrote an extended diatribe. Rex chimed in yesterday. There now millions of peeps like this who ordinarily don't vote, or don't pay attention to politics, and they are PISSED.

    From the blaze:

    The White House has released the transcript of President Obama’s recent speech in Roanoke, Virginia, and it holds a number of noteworthy statements.

    “Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own.

    The official transcript:

    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. [Emphasis added]

    He continued:

    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. [Emphasis added]

    Watch a clip of the remarks, via C-SPAN (the clip begins with Obama’s declaration that we asked the wealthy to pay more taxes during the Clinton administration, and did better for it):

    Z, get to the nitty gritty. Tax payers built the roads and bridges. The government is the distributor of funds, thats all!! The middle class is the largest base of all taxes collected by the government, hence, most middle class being employed by private business payed the for most of the infrastructure.

    Forget about the "you didn't build it" line the one that sticks out to me is, see bold type. That my liberal dip shits is a bunch of bullshit! You don't get wealthy in this country without a lot of hard work and just because there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there don't discount the fact that successful people are always outworking people who aren't and have a certain drive that others lack.


    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.

    Here Zombie, read the entire thing. So you can't use the taken out of context BS that even the White House is spewing out.

    Please explain how this is not a speech on collectivism and demonizing people that work harder than others to build something up. He did. You, and he, both bring up roads and bridges. But let me ask you this. What brought about the need for roads and bridges? I'll answer it for you. It was the invention of cheap automobiles built with mass production by a man named Henry Ford. This created a demand for roads and bridges built on money taken from the population of the country.

    This isn't just about the stupid wording of that one phrase, but about him trying to knock people that work hard to create something. This speech was nothing more than trying to make their accomplishments worth less than they are. He's a fucking asshole for it and I am quite proud, AS I SHOULD BE, of what I have built up.

    Zombie, there are people in this world that work harder than they have to. You've stated before you are definitely not one of these people. You yourself only did just what you had to do and nothing more. Well, some of us go a step further and do more and expect more and accomplish more. And no fucking jackass prick in the White House is going to tell me I'm not any better than the guys that work less and expect the same.

    This is just more of the same liberal "Everyone's a winner, there are no losers" bullshit. This is real life. There are winners and there are losers. And he can go fuck himself for trying to make the losers think they do just as much as the winners and we all accomplish the same things in life.

    You can go bang your head against a wall in a smiley if you'd like, but this is indeed what he was trying to do in this little speech of his. Read the whole thing any number of times. He's still an asshole no matter how many times you read it.
