RealClearPolitics ^ | September 21, 2011

“I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody," Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) said.

Warren is running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts. Warren hopes to face off with Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) in the general election.

Rush spent a good part of his show today ripping apart Warren for these ridiculous comments. And to think, a few months ago this Marxist kook was one confirmation vote away from being over all the financial institutions in this country.

My grandparents came from Italy LEGALLY with nothing-
25 years later they built a village block, 2 restaurants, a 100 room hotel and an olive grove estate [in Italy] with cash.

My favorite part of this is that she makes this tirade with a completely straight face!

Does she not realize that these successful people were paying the same taxes as those who she claims did all the road building and police/fire costs?

This woman has no clue! She pointed out facts that most of the left libtards will completely MISS in this entire rant! All the while that the successful man was risking his money, his families future, etc... he was also paying for roads, police, fire, schools, etc...! This man has paid above and BEYOND what these others have paid, but she wants him to pay MORE?!?!? IDIOTS!

I can see it now election night 2012, MSNBC will focus 59 minutes of every hour talking about how this idiot pulled the momumental, stupendous election victory over the Playgirl RINO Brown, meanwhile the Democrat party will take a whipping of historical proportions,and Obama will be the first black man to an Ex-President.

This is standard left-wing boilerplate, and Massachusetts voters will eat it up. Particularly once she starts wailing away on the banks. She will give Brown a very tough run for his money.

This is a clarifying argument. The liberal Democrats maintain that the wealth of the country rightly belongs to the government, that is to say the permanent ruling class, in other words themselves. They then have the right and responsibility to re-distribute it as they see fit. Those of us who believe that the fruits of our labor should be our own, are their enemies.

Good to know where we all stand.

Sorry Liz, I May call you Liz, right? But you got is bass-ackwards.

If you didn't have companies mining materials, making steel, making cars, making medicines, ..., generating wealth and hiring employees, you wouldn't have those government services.

In fact, you wouldn't have

your own job

so sit down, Liz, shut up and thank capitalism for your own comfortable existence.

Since nobody in America got rich on his own, I hereby make this public demand.

BARACK OBAMA OWES ME PART OF HIS BOOK ROYALTIES.

I helped him distribute the book through my tax contributions to infrastructure.

My tax dollars provided him with police and Secret Service protection. My tax dollars paid his salary as a U.S. Senator when he wrote the books.

He got rich off his books.

I'll take ten per cent of his book royalties.

That should nearly cover what I contributed to his wealth.

Worldview conflict:

1) Unalienable rights from the Creator, government of enumerated powers.

-or-

2) Government owns you and entitled to a piece of everything you have or ever earn or create, ever-expanding government.

I hate to agree (at least with her quote) with a commie - but your post drives at what I was thinking. All of the good employees that your grandparents hired helped him become successful. But it was not the employee’s driving force that created the hotel, etc. - it was your grandparents. Amazing how capitalism is beneficial to EVERYONE! (Owner, employees, tired travellers, ...)

I suppose this gal thinks it is the government that helps people get rich? I think we already pay our fair share for roads, military security, etc. which help our ability to “get rich”.

And of course she doesn’t think about the fact that raising taxes on the “rich” business person will cut into their profits, seeking them to cut costs elsewhere - such as laying off employees. Or going Galt (or “going to India”) and saying srew-it-all. And follow a long list of good firms that have already done that.

I heard the woman's angry voice.

Another, "Thank God I am not married to her" moment.

Can you imagine hanging around her house when she's home?

Even the Munchkins of Oz would agree, "We're gonna need a REALLY BIG HOUSE to drop on a witch like that."

She’s not saying anything different than Ted Kennedy did for four decades. The only difference is she is not slurring her words.

Note to Ms Warren:

I have owned more than one house at a time, due to an inheritance. I have actually paid more years of property taxes than I have total years myself: I am 71 & have paid out 78 years of taxes. Currently sending year 79 to local county.

I have produced NO children.

Therefore, I have produced NO grandchildren.

I have paid an enormous amount of money to ‘educate’ children with my property taxes monies.

I have never hired anyone for my bookkeeping business—mostly because I never met anyone who had the initiative to put in the hours required to meet deadlines & accuracy standards.

Therefore, Ms Warren, I would like a refund for all the money I paid into the system, which I never got back since I didn’t hire anyone.

This shreiking hag is one of the most stupid I have ever heard speak.

Someone in the Dem party needs to pull her off the stage-—or just concede the entire election to Scott Brown now before they spend any more foolish money on her.

She may have a point here.
However, if the ‘previous’ rich would have blown their fortunes (no matter how they got it) the sons/daughters of the moguls would have been on their own.
For example, the modern day Kennedys, Kerrys, etal would have had to start on their own and I seriously doubt that other than drinking and whoring around their life would have been futile.

The LIBS example of a self-made millionaire is someone who was willed 2 million bucks, lost a good portion of it and then continues to call himself a millionaire, and yes, he is a self made millionaire, just started out above the fold.

people who think like Lizzie would say your grandparents got rich because of the government, which obligingly provided them with “infrastructure” like roads, utilties, police, military, bank regulations etc

So, all their base belong to the govt, suck it up and pay up

Confiscate 90% of the bitch’s assets, every year. Using her logic she got what she has not on her own but with the help of all of us. While we’re at it, move 2 or 3 illegal families into her house because she’s not allowed to have all of it for her own. You worthless socialists are going to start a revolution all right except you will be at the receiving end of the sword.

No one who receives welfare, or how doesn’t work but has housing and food anyway got these things on their own. Still waiting to hear a nice hearty ‘thank you’.

It is true than no one has ever gotten rich without help from others.

However, Mrs. Warren, the more operative truth, in our system, is that no one has ever gotten rich without enriching others.

One of humanity's sadder legacies is a long trail of creative justifications for theft and envy.

Moses brought down from Sinai a few laws that address such human failings, but many persist in ignoring them, much to their detriment.
