I just watched the video.

What struck me is the fact that I heard a certain word used a lot of times.

If I type that word out in this post, I will have the post removed....or worse.

So Obama would laud the hammer, not the carpenter.

Obama would praise the paint brush, not the artist.

Obama would praise the brick, not the architect.

Obama would salute the pan, not the chef.

Obama would exault the pencil, not the writer.

Idiot.

it sure takes a lot of time for the professional writers to get on board...

here's an article that berates Obama for his intellectually vacant remarks about government providing the way for a business to be created & the little man, entrepeneur as a mere adornment...

see: www.dailymail.co.uk...

National Federation of Independent Business slams Obama for remarks challenging significance of U.S. entrepreneurs
Obama told supporters over the weekend that it was governments - not individuals - who create jobs

So double taxing is ok then?

So what if she is rich, she is not the enemy, nor the woes of my troubles. I don't concern myself with that. My issue is that the Govt has yet to do any "Program" in budget or correctly.
If she purchases something, she pays tax. If she earns an income, she pays taxes and so on.

All that crap you listed above...uh yea. So my accountant can hide my money just as well as Bill Gates or Mitt Romney's? I get the same tax havens and tax breaks that they do? You sure about that?

If you become wealthy, or a member of Congress, Senate or the President you can use those same tax havens.
But, let's just put those last three people in charge, i am sure they have our best interest. Ah man, just realized that they were the ones that created those loop holes and such.

Obama appears to parrot Elisabeth Warren in socialist rant.



Same socialist textbook.

So, um since they (government) provided everything, they now have an excuse to take it all.

Isn't Warren a wee bit hypocritical (she's indian and all) about government taking away stuff?

Obama and Elisabeth Warren probably have the same posters hanging on their walls.

- Resist Capitalism 100% -

Along the way try to smear American Exceptionalism.

It turns out that American Exceptionalism gives us - strength & power - to resist

a communist revolution.


When we reduce the unemployment rate to 4% the socialists like Obama and

Elisabeth Warren will run back into the bushes where they belong.


Read more about their agenda at the Wikipedia link.

He's telling the truth, but selfish and greedy people can not see the truth.

Great socities and civilizations require a collective effort. Business owners and entrepreneurs are like chefs. While they might be the ones mixing everything together, if their vegetables are rotten or their blender is broken, then they can't make a succesful meal. The quality of the ingredients and tools are just as important as the person who combines everything.

In this case, the raw ingredients are the American people and the tools are this country's infastructure, which was created and is maintained by even more Americans. It's really about acknowledging and paying dues to the people who helped you to get where you are because in truth you can not do it on your own. Companies who don't bother to keep their office bathrooms clean are not going to retain the highest quality professionals, who are smart and help keep them successful. So remember that even the janitors play a part in making business owners successful.


edit on 14-7-2012 by MaryStillToe because: (no reason given)


If the company doesn't bother to keep it's restroom clean, we as Americans (at least for the time being) have the right to go to the company down the block that does. We don't need POTUS to tell us which company to buy from, yet he wants the government to help you decide that really you need to buy solar panels from Solyndra, not natural gas from your current energy provider.

Just because someone does not agree with you doesn't make them selfish or greedy, but that's the current left-wing tactic when participating in an argument. Since the facts don't support you, be sure to tear your competition down by calling them names.

I'm fairly certain POTUS (who I do not think is right to lead this country) mis-spoke here. He was trying to say you can't build your building without traveling over the road that the state or feds built. However what always troubles me about this man (and the 2nd in command who ALWAYS puts foot in mouth) is he never seems to want to make his argument more clear. It's like "yup I said it, what of it?" and that doesn't fly for me.

What concerns me is that they may be gaining ground. With their ever encroaching entitlement campaigns, and subtle brain-washing, it is truly frightening.

Obama is an Anti - capitalist.

We have to get him out of there November 2012.

Then we can restore America.


- Long live American Exceptionalism -

I can't disagree more with your comments.

I started a business...all on my own. I did not walk on the backs of anyone who came before me.
It was my money that paid the rent on space to open my business. It was my money that paid for the materials for shelves for the stock I sold. It was my money that bought the stock for the shelves I built. It was my money that paid the electric bill and the phone bill. Money I earned working and paying taxes, that, by the way, paid for the roads, bridges and highways.

It was my blood, sweat and tears that went into building a business, without government help, without grants or loans from anyone.

The only thing that helped me create a business was the freedom we enjoy in this nation. The only backs that I may have stood on to build my business are the backs of our military that fought to ensure my freedom.

That is something Obama seems to want to take away from us. The freedom to suceed without interference from government.

They are failing miserably with each passing Jobs Growth Report that comes out.

They can't run on their terrible record so they just sit back and throw out

divisive distractions.

It won't work. They are about to lose power in the US Senate and the White House.

It's over.

You are a shining example of American Exceptionalism.

Obama hates the private sector. All he did was smear your accomplishments.

It was a Joe the Plumber moment. Obama is a socialist.

I will guarantee you no one helped my immigrant blacksmith grandfather and father start their BLACKSMITH business, back in the day, where they went down in the mines to shoe mules, that saw them through the great depression, and into the modern era when dad started welding in his shop.

I have had three small businesses, just working from my home, I work one job to buy the supplies for the other,

No government grants.

Obama doesn't have a clue, it all about the handouts with him.

Speaking of Joe the plumber....I could not believe what Obama said to him. Obama wanted to make sure others enjoyed sucess too.

I looked up the word sucess...my dictionary definition: to get rich.

Apparently, Obama wants all the do-nothing slouches to get rich off the backs of hard-working Americans.

Thanks for reminding me of more evidence we have an "Idiot-in-Chief" in OUR Whitehouse!

But. . . but. . . . but. . . . but the government built the road that you drive on to get to your house!

So just hush up and give Obama all your stuff.

Obamas days are numbered.

Even Chris Mattews has turned on him.
