    Oh, come on Obama. Willard started that ‘small’ business with $10 million of his own money, earned as a small child from the tooth fairy.

    ^ btw, nice comment, rv

    Not at all what he said, but dittoheads don’t listen, and get PAID not to??

    Not at all what he said. So the words,
    “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” never came out of his mouth? Ever? I must be imagining things!

    C’mon trout, be honest with yourself. He revealed his personal beliefs here, and they are left wanting. This is not a socialist society; we pride ourselves on our individualism. We cling to the idea that if we succeed, it’s because our own hard work got us there. Have you ever owned a small business? Have you ever owned any business? If you had, you’d realize and recognize that government on any level is an obstruction to your success, not a boon. Yes, the government built the interstate highway, researched the internet protocols, and the power grid. But you know what? It was the taxpayers and successful businesses that paid for it. In effect, we built it ourselves, and the only thing government did was coordinate our efforts. If government didn’t do it, I’m quite certain a private company would have done it and charged tolls to pay for it and turn a profit.

    Wraith: as you proved yourself, the ’toon is NOT what he said, not even close. YES! I"ve owned a business, and did quite well, and sold it at a tidy profit, on which I paid taxes, back in those “bad old days”! What YOU also confess is that without the effort and contributions of THE SOCIETY, NO American business can succeed. I also worked for government with many businesses that COULD NOT HAVE EXISTED without “government” help, notably, mining, ranching, timber, oil and gas, and electrical energy development and generation.


    BTW: our “toll roads”, most owned by AUSTRALIANS, if you get 30 miles to the gallon for gas, are charging you the equivalent of $24-$48 PER GALLON!! NO, that’s not a “tax”, it’s outrageous profit for a company charging YOU to drive on roads GOVERNMENT BUILT!!!!!!


    Cars, trucks, TVs, stoves, shoes, clothes, and other products I WANT to buy from private companies in competition with each other. I do NOT want to have toll roads (total ripoff), or other public services, like police, fire, or prisons, run by “private contractors”, OR our wars! Those last items ARE being driven by the MIC to assure profits, for blood, and Ike was RIGHT! It’s time to work on peace for a change, and a part of that is for oil and gas companies to pay FAIR MARKET VALUE for taxpayer owned resources, even if it DOES mean higher gas prices, and buying more efficient transportation, including MASS TRANSIT in big cities where it’s the only practical way to go for “commuting”. (Better land use planning would also help, a LOT!)

    He can’t. Would be better to give this space to a talented and salient artist like Matt Bors,

    Obama is most people’s intellectual superior. I can only hope to someday be as wise and inspirational as he is.

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    So private corporations have the right to their own choices? Why is this guy ramming the ACA down their throats with a punitive tax if they don’t do things his way? Kind of a hypocritical comment from you, don’t you think?

    You’ll need to quit licking toe jam and go to school first. But, it’s also nice to note that you’ve set your sights so low. Underachievers unite!

    The cartoon and Wraith tell different lies — the cartoon makes up stuff Obama never said or even implied. This is a caricature that the right would LOVE to run against, but Obama is a better man than that. Wraith, see if you can spot the difference between what you were told Obama said in the Romney ad, and what he actually said, which was "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.” In other words, you want a country that you can run a business in, you’ve got to pay your share of the taxes.

    Must watch FOX, haven’t seen anything like them since the NAZI Ministry of Propaganda. OF course they were more honorable than FOX as they admitted what they were.

    As usual, McCoy is following the party line – or should I say the Romney campaign line, in which Obama’s statements are edited to make it sound like he said something other than what he did.

    As for the debate over the purity of captialism, the simple fact is that market forces are not enough to keep the different parts of our system working smoothly; that’s why we need government regulations to keep things balanced when corporations would otherwise cross the line. If you don’t want to run a business under those conditions, fine; plenty of other people are willing to step in and fill the void.

    @Oscar54

    Just because we don’t agree with Obama doesn’t make us racist. Stop dredging up BS accusations that do nothing but incite negative reactions.

    Rodney, I would appreciate if you didn’t commit libel and say I lied. Nothing in my comment was a falsehood. I quoted his exact words. And government is an obstuction to business; government is parasitic to businesses and the people. That’s why it should be as small as practicable. Right now, government takes up 1/4 of our economy. That’s like a tick consuming 1/4 of the blood in your body. How long do you think you’ll survive at that rate?
