(Pictures are of Native American wannabe Warren and Barry after falling for the “pull my finger” gag, again.)
No, really, in a speech Obama gave yesterday is nearly identical to what the speaks-with-forked-tongue Elizabeth Warren did last year.
Here’s what Warren said in August…..
“You built a factory out there? Good for you,” she says. “But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.”
She continues: “Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
Now, this demonstrates and incredible ignorance about who pays for what and where money comes from, but, we’ll get to that in a moment. Let’s see what the prez said yesterday……
“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.”
Okay, seeing how these are the same arguments, we don’t have to address them one at a time. These people are complete and utter imbeciles. Where in the heck do they think the money for the roads, bridges, teachers, and even the internet research came from?
I’m not sure I can articulate this to where simpletons such as Warren and Obama can understand, but, I’ll give it my best shot and hopefully someone can dumb it down and send it to these people.
First of all, the government doesn’t accomplish anything without taxing. Without taxation, there is no police force, fire dept, schools, teachers, military, or overpaid imbeciles sitting in our government seats and bureaucracies. This is crucial to understand. Without taxes none of that happens and none of those people have jobs.
So, who was taxed? Employees, employers, and businesses. Now we’re not counting government employees, because they don’t have jobs until someone else get’s taxed. So, it is the private sector who gets taxed. Where did these people get the money to be taxed? Oh, by doing stuff. The build things, they produce things, they farm, they harvest, they ranch, they mine, the refine, they ship, they invent, and they innovate.
So when jack wagons like Warren and Obama spew their silly nonsense about the roads, and police force and schools, we know all of this already, WE PAID FOR THE DAMNED THINGS! These things happened because the populous, the private sector, wanted them to happen and THEY PAID FOR IT! To suggest that successful people owe their success to government leaches because said leaches were so gracious as to act in the public interest at one time is truly a step towards a dystopian future. Let me say another thing about successful business people and paying things forward. They give people jobs! Yeh, that’s right! What clown thinks jobs just fall from the sky? What sort of ass-clown thinks that success will just randomly happen to people? That’s the biggest line of nonsensical crap he’s spewed to date! If I still owned a business, I would move to have all other business owners, entrepreneurs, and self-employed people refrain for a week. Just hang the gone fishing sign out and see what happens. Of course they won’t, they’re too busy trying to keep hold of what they’ve earned and trying to grow what they’ve built that they can’t.
In this country, everyone has an equal shot. So, if some are not successful, that’s because they did something wrong. The ones who were and are successful is because they more often got it right.
If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
No, that’s not true. I’ve never once had the occasion for someone come up to me and say, “Here’s a business for you! Us at the government made it for you. Have at it.”
Let’s review. Employers, be it large or small, give people jobs. Together with the self-employed, create revenue. Governments tax these people. They take our money and hire teachers, police, firemen, bureaucrats, the military, and so on. They also spend our money on public works projects such as roads and bridges and what not. None of this happens without first having successful people who create the wealth of this country. I don’t know how to break it down any simpler.
While I can’t know for sure, because of the insanity the left has, but I think their backward way of thinking arises because they believe the populous exists for the government, when it is the government which exists for the people.
Now, right now, you don’t have to acknowledge or raise your hand or anything, but right now, any one who voted for Obama the first time around, I want you to slap yourself so hard that you knock yourself out of your chair. DON’T YOU EVER HELP INFLICT THIS SORT OF IMBECLIC BUFFON ON THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S. AGAIN!
