"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. 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. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."

That SOMEBODY Sally was the American people not the government! The government has created nothing but problems.
On Fox, no less.
Ya know. Just thinking about the Saudi connection of Fox (they have minority ownership). It’s an Islamist government with some truly execrable public policies. You could lose your head over it (pun intended). But it sure doesn’t pretend to be the be-all and end-all of Saudi Arabia’s economic life. Now if Saudi Arabia is that smart why can’t Obama be.
I’m so sick of government “investing”. Who invests in bridges and roads?
What was the title of Hillary’s book? “It Takes a Village Idiot”?
Kohn met her partner, Sarah Hansen, at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2003. Hansen works as an activist and consultant, and is the former Executive Director of the Environmental Grantmakers Association. They have a 3 year old girl, Willa Eliza Hansen-Kohn.
I listened to an old short video— Paul Harvey: If I Were the Devil.
How the heck did our founding fathers survive without all that government help - paved roads, damns, taxes (well, maybe without those at that time).
I guess we could not have survived without all of today’s overbearing government control or maybe we would be enormously successful with them...like the old days!
Sally you ignorant slut.
Maybe you should have paid more attention to your grandfather. He didn’t have government build his business. Truth be told government was probably an impediment. But if his business and others did not succeed THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANY NEED FOR THOSE ROADS AND BRIDGES! WE paid for those...we told governments to build them. Not sure how you miss that.
Government doesn’t exist to pick winners and losers, to make investments...it exists only by our consent to do our bidding. Zero is dead wrong. He is not a leader...he is a servant.
Not that any of them think they are any more... Thats why we have lost control of our government..and dumbazzes like you making excuses for it don’t help.
What is it that Ron White says, “You can’t fix STUPID!!
>> “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.”
Presumably, from the great, selfless union of Public Education. /s
They’re paid to teach, moron. And if the students are lucky, only the most fundamental aspects of the primary disciplines are taught.
Take this template, and shove it. PE does NOT teach entrepreneurship, nor does it inspire greatness. I don’t give a # what anecdotes are thrown out.
I can see her point. It took many Commie teachers and acquaintances to make Obama the man he is today. We shouldn’t forget a shout out to various dopers and American hating Muslims and Christians too.
Sally is FOX’s token lesbian. She’s the Rachel Maddow of FOX.
My wife said “Fox doesn’t cover the news. They cover for obama.”
I wonder if Silly Sally realizes the government builds all the country’s infrastructure with tax payer money. The reality then becomes the government can’t do anything without private individuals “helping” them.
