No more confusion on where Barack stands on business. He’s anti-capitalism and anti-success. What exactly did the man say? “Look , if you’ve been successful you didn’t get there on your own.” The whole clip is below. Watch it at your own risk. It might raise your blood pressure to the boiling point.
Well, Mr. Anti-Business, I resent your idiotic anti-business punish-the-rich stance. Here’s what we have done. We have owned five different businesses and built four of them to success by working 14-hour days, often seven days a week. We didn’t take vacations. We didn't dare get sick. We provided jobs for others. We never got a thing from the government. You talk about roads our businesses used, teachers who might have helped us; somebody along the line gave us some help? You are so wrong. We did it on our own, something you would not understand. We contributed to roads and teachers through hefty tax payments so we don’t owe the government one single thin dime. Half of the population pays NOTHING towards roads, schools, education, and they still get to USE what the rest of us pay for. What do they contribute? Zero.
No one helped us succeed except our smarts, our ambition, our perseverance and our determination to do whatever it took to accomplish our dream. Most importantly, every business we’ve owned was started or purchased with our own money. We didn’t ask for any government help, not even SBA loans. Financially we put everything on the line for a dream, an idea. That’s something you wouldn’t understand – personal sacrifice.
I mentioned owning five businesses and building four. Let me tell you about the one business that was a failure. It was a retail establishment that sustained fire damage. Insurance wouldn’t pay for everything, so there was not enough money to reopen. We lost everything we had accumulated over years of hard work.
We were told we should file for bankruptcy because we had so much debt and no assets. We said no, we will repay everyone. And we did. We were told our kids qualified for free school lunches. We said no, we don’t want them stigmatized by government handouts. We were told we could utilize food stamps. We said no, we will feed our family. We qualified for welfare. We didn’t apply. We sold our house and lost a lot of money on it. For six months we had no income. Finally my husband found a job, but it meant moving to another state. We had two kids in high school and one in grade school, but we packed up and moved. We did what we had to do provide for our family. So don’t you dare tell me that any success we’ve had is because “somebody else made it happen.” You are pathetic and have zero understanding of what America is really about.
Two can play this game, Barry. If you are one of the millions of Americans counted as part of the 10-15% unemployed, you didn't get there on your own. Somebody else made that happen, and he's running for reelection.FIRST VIDEO, BARACK BEING STUPID.
