Excerpt from the socialist-in-chief speech yesterday in Virginia:
"If youve got a business -- you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnt get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

If Government is responsible for all success in this country then I guess they are also responsible for all failures too.
These people and Obama in particular really are in need of some padded room time. I’ve haven’t seen such a disconnect from reality in a very long time. At least I hadn’t prior to this crew getting into office with their myriad hangers-on.
Simple, whereever he made it, it became a government, not a political action, and therefore, not charged to him as a political expense.
This place has become the equal of Alice falling down the rabbit hole.
The Kenyan is just plain nuts.
Nobody has earned a damned thing. It is all stuff we don’t deserve to have. So .. naturally, it is his right to take it all from us.
(Gee, he must be off his teleprompter these days!?)
Obama isn’t even trying to win anymore. And his futile “scorched earth” campaign will be forgotten by this time next year.
Did they learn no lessons from watching Elizabeth Warren and her bulging neck veins?
What a stupid bastard. Everyone’s taxes paid for it.
“The Kenyan is just plain nuts.”
Yup, 25 amendment time.
What a maroon. I have yet to see government do anything for small business except stand in its way and demand taxes and maddening regulatory compliance.
damn ... all these years I thought Al Gore invented the Internet.
No, government created the internet to connect different research facilities and education institutions. Then they kept it to mostly to themselves for years. When they finally allowed commercial connections in 1995, the internet took off, to the point where most people believe the history of the internet only goes back to around 1995. The billions invested in internet hardware and software since 95 was due to the pursuit of profit.
And then, at MOST, maybe so graciously offer to cut a little bit of the huge mass of red tape it has set up.
I first read this here:
but glad you posted it with his statement as title because more people will see it this way!!
Possibly his most outrageous statement as president.
Which he doubtless regrets now as all those wires and routers just warm the basket case earth.
Since the very beginning of our Nation the most consistant enemy has been the Democrats.
-World War (two of them)
-Nuclear Weapons (two whole cities destroyed)
-Cold War (threatened the entire planet with destruction)
So far this century government has done the following
-Run up the most massive debt in world history (US)
-Three nuclear reactor meltdowns (Japan would not have reactors without government involvement)
Would the planet be better off without the obvious corrupt evil of human governance ?
And BTW, Emperor Zero. Government is doing everything it can to destroy my small business.
Yes, we exist and have thumbs and everything. If not for those facts we'd not exist nor have thumbs. Guess what? If no one harnessed electricity then we'd harness it now.
The only 2% in play is the 2% you've bought in to Zero's BS.
Okay, all you slackers. We’te going to be working for a few more hours this evening and we start at 7am on Monday.
Oh, and one of you REALLY needs to clean the employee bathroom.
