damn ... all these years I thought Al Gore invented the Internet.
Which he doubtless regrets now as all those wires and routers just warm the basket case earth.
Actually, Gubmint created nothing. Whether it be weapons, rockets, internet, whatever, they contracted out to PRIVATE companies to develop what the Government wanted....then, they chose (whether honestly or corruptly is another matter). It was a small car-maker who developed the Jeep in 90 days before World War II. It was a luxury boat maker named Higgins in New Orleans who developed the Higgins Boats. It was private initiative that led to all the modern conveniences we rely upon today.
No, damn, all these years of working 16 hour days and now to know I didn’t have to because someone else was building my business.
I didn’t have to worry about banking, cash flow, accounts receivable, getting the bills paid on time, taxes, payroll, OSHA reporting, recruiting, clients, contracts, insurance.... none of that because I didn’t build my business. Someone else did and all I got was the benefit.
I have hated this guy for as long as I’ve been aware of him. Now I resent him.
