Skip to comments.Steve Jobs went to Hero of Left to Bad Capialist

Steve Jobs went from world greatest inventor. The right way to build a corporation to greedy, bashed for his words to Obama your going to be a one term President.
The left in a nano second have begun to trash Steve Jobs for telling the truth.
Some saying they will never buy another apple product.
The guy was a bit of an arrogant d*ck.
But now I’m feeling like buying some Apple products all of a sudden.
This is how rotten our country has become, when we bash the newly dead who created millions of jobs worldwide. I don’t think we have much time left as a country, much less a superpower.
In the business world you have to be or you will be eaten alive............Trump is the same way...........
I never really understood why Steve Jobs was such a hero of the Left. He was an SOB towards his employees, he was tight-fisted with his money, never really gave to charity. Bill Gates tended to work side by side with his employees, gave millions upon millions to all sorts of charities, and from most accounts is a decent (if somewhat misdirected) person, and yet he is the evil capitalist.
Wow, I never thought I would be saying anything good about Bill Gates.
What the heck is a Cap i alist? And why do you come out of the gate with a non sentence? My advice is if you are going to attack anyone that has made an extraordinary success of life and has employed millions, that you use spell check and find out how to write a sentence or forget about people reading your thoughts. Otherwise it looks as though a six-year-old broke into Mommy's or Daddy's FReeper account first thing in the morning while they were in the shower. Please for all of our sake learn to spell and to write before writing a vanity. No one is going to you or your ideas seriously otherwise.
You lost me at Cap i alist and complete made me ill with your first non sentence.
I am trying to figure out what you are saying here, but I am having trouble because I think you left some words out by mistake. Did Steve Jobs say something negative about Obama?
Exactly. Especially by some idiot that has horrid grammar and can’t spell or use a spell checker. That person is going far fast . . . not!
scooby321’s paws are too big to accurately type?
I've found that (generally speaking) many people who rise to the very top of their professions do so largely because of a deeply ingrained sense of self-confidence and self-assuredness. When they get there, they have trouble separating this from self-absorbtion. A few (mainly those with deeply seated Christian values) retain a humble sense of gratitude for their blessings and success, but many view their accomplishments solely as a product of self and from that point it's easy to view "lesser" persons with contempt.
Thanks for the English lesson, my language arts teaching wife would be proud.
Up to the release of the anti-Obama comments, I never saw any negative comments from the left.
Even though evil Apple has $76 billion in cash and is often endorsed by Rush Limbaugh.
Why even take time out of your morning to ask? The way I see it there has been a wreck on the side of the road of FreeRepublic threads—that has briefly caught your attention—and move on to a real thread with clear ideas expressed and spelled properly. Life is short. Let’s not waste a second on the functionally illiterate.
I bought a new pc recently, and gave Apple serious consideration. But the price was a bit much. I ended up with a Systemax - assembled and supported in the USA. So far, it’s awesome!
I’ve never understood why Jobs and Gates get a pass from the left, while Wall Street is pilloried.
Jobs and Gates got rich selling products that have parts made in Asia for pennies on the dollar.
Why do Big Hollywood and Big Sports get passes, too?
Why don’t the OWS people advocate limiting how much a movie or sports star makes like they want to limit what a Wall Street banker makes?
Before attacking the successful of this world to a wide audience or any other time you post a FR vanity, have your lovely wife edit your work. Opposites truly do attract for a reason.
haha. Sweet. :)
I think the man that co invented the Mac was able to use a spell checker, and certainly was no idiot.
Hell I can really stink up a good sentence on occasion or more, but I don't write vanities. Maybe it is for this reason. I feel they are often just that VAIN. It is sort of like a really hot person or talented. They can hold my attention but if they are just unattractive on all levels and have no talent why bother others? Haha. So I just stick to the small time post--the un vain tyrant :)--the true FR rebel :-D.
Yeah, and they’re transmitting their anger via iPhone and Mac. LOL! Are they really that stupid?
“You lost me at Cap i alist and complete made me ill with your first non sentence.”
“When someone makes a mistake whether it’s a spelling error or a spelling flame, a stupid question or an unnecessarily long answer be kind about it. If it’s a minor error, you may not need to say anything. Even if you feel strongly about it, think twice before reacting. Having good manners yourself doesn’t give you license to correct everyone else. If you do decide to inform someone of a mistake, point it out politely, and preferably by private email rather than in public. Give people the benefit of the doubt; assume they just don’t know any better. And never be arrogant or self-righteous about it. Just as it’s a law of nature that spelling flames always contain spelling errors, notes pointing out Netiquette violations are often examples of poor Netiquette.”
DeLl inSpirO n 2500!(
Really?--we all thought and expressed in our posts. Of course the OP on that thread attacked all the people--who said it was his business--with intense vitriol.
It is Steve Jobs job to make his own decisions about his healthcare. It was the most bizarre thing and now this bizarre slice of . . . God knows what . . . vanity to start the day. Makes one wonder what has happened to people.
No offense intended, but in the post I am replying to you used sentence fragments, are missing some punctuation, and wrote a completely incomprehensible sentence altogether.
As to the OP’s vanity, I am surmising that because posting directly from the HuffPo is not allowed on FR (for good reason), he chose to summarize the sentiments he saw expressed there. I’m sure he could have crafted his post better, but I wouldn’t beat him up for it, especially on matters of spelling and grammar.
Great find. That is a hilarious post. Sort of like reading Miss Manners’ hard bound bible while sitting in the stands of a Texas Ranger’s game drinking beer with your buds. A good laugh.
Well folks do seem to be on edge lately, and not only here.
Is that Steve JOBA-THE-HUT? hahaha.
Explaining away ignorance is never a good thing for the unskilled or lazy. Are you a union man or woman?
Listen. We all make grammar, spelling, and writing mistakes. But posting an unreadable and incomprehensible vanity post ripping apart a newly dead man who has achieve more success in one lifetime than ten lifetimes of many of us here--one better have a decent intelligent presentation or move on.
I am sure the closest union office would love to have your excuse ridden, co dependent writings. Lord know they exploit and thieve based on that reality. Or the nearest homeless shelter too can use such a spokesman.
And for the few, for whatever reason, it looks like poor, dead Steve is their kicking post.
“...Why do Big Hollywood and Big Sports get passes, too?...
The New York Yankees are the epitome of greed all around....Greedy owners, greedy players, greedy concession owners. A normal family has to scrimp and save for a day out at the ballgame. Why doesn’t OWS address that? I guess it is because even communists and marxists get starstruck.
You really enjoy attacking other FR posters, don’t you?
No, I am not in a union, and not “explaining things away.” I have an MA in English, work as a professional writer, and yet I make mistakes too—so do you, as is quite evident in your posts in this thread. I am merely pointing out that it is unwise to cast stones while dwelling in a glass house of one’s own.
Additionally, I think you are completely misinterpreting the purpose of the OP’s post. As I understand it, he is commenting on the irony of the LEFT (not you or other FReepers), trashing a man they once idolized because they have just now discovered he held anti-Obama sentiments. I do not think he shares those sentiments himself.
Because, for years, Apple was seen as the underdog. No more than that.
LOL! I just replaced my Dell Inspiron! Don’t remember the number. It worked okay for 3 years, but has had all kinds of problems in the last 2-3 months. I finally gave up on fixing it and replaced it.
In a word? Yes. :-D. When it is well deserved. Otherwise I don't bother.
I'm a very understanding and generally accepting person on most accounts. However laziness and explaining away or sticking up for stupidity and laziness bugs me to no end. Guess you fell under one or the other.
Unwise? A glass house of one's own? Really? Posting a vanity is a big deal. It is saying I am so self important and my ideas are so important I have to post it with all the other professionals.
I don't post vanities. I don't assume so much self importance that I would waste people's time. If I did, however, I would take the time to truly edit it for comprehension and use the spell checker.
if I ever post a vanity, I hope you stand there is judgement and comparison to this guy that posted a stinker and took off.
Otherwise you are comparing Apples and Kiwis. I dwell as a small time poster. That is where I live. OP is a vanity--huge thread of their own person. Let them live and die on the comprehension of their ideas. Me I'm just a worker bee.
Having watched jobs public persona over the years, he has always stuck as a salesman more than any kind of designer. Now we will have to suffer the cult of Saint Jobs.
Bravo! You are, indeed, quite the poet.
Yeah...I’m not sure what the problem is. Not everyone is an accomplished writer. I was still able to decipher what the OP meant.
I wonder now what sort of sickening tribute they’ll do on every anniv. of his death. I do not like Apple products. The difference between Apple and a PC is like a tricycle vs a Black Shadow motorcycle.
In the end, it’s because leftists want to blame Wall Street greed on the GOP (even though Dems are in bed with Wall St. as well). There is no attachment between the GOP and either Hollywood or sports that the left can exploit.
The left says lots of things they don’t mean...next product that comes out they will be waiting in line to buy.I keep looking at it this way...Steve Jobs was seldom wrong in what he said so I believe him when he said Obama was going to be a one termer!
“Sort of like reading Miss Manners hard bound bible while sitting in the stands of a Texas Rangers game drinking beer with your buds...”
...And queening on about someone’s spelling.
But hey. That is just my opinion. I think vanity posters should be held to a comprehensible title and general reading minimum. Otherwise the idea of Thread removed by Admin comes to mind. But I respect my and my fellow FReepers' intelligence level. If I was an ADMIN, and I am not, I would have lassoed the dung into the trash.
But I respect that you found this dung worthy. I just disagree.
Are you kinging me about queening? :-D
“If I was an ADMIN, and I am not,... “
You could always put in your application.
