Georgia lumberyard owner hammers Obama on 'You didn't build that'
FOX News ^ | 8/1/12 | Maegan Vazquez

Posted on 08/01/2012 11:47:53 AM PDT by Kartographer

President Obama's message to entrepreneurs that "you didn't build that" prompted one Georgia business owner to respond with a not-so-subtle retort.

"I built this business without gov't help. Obama can Kiss my ass," reads the sign outside Gaster Lumber & Hardware in Savannah, Ga. Owner Ray Gaster posted that and two similar ones at all three of his company's locations in response to Obama's comments during a speech to supporters in Virignia, which struck a nerve with small business owners around the nation.

This picture started circulating through the lumber industry on Monday. By yesterday I had received it at least three times. It has gone viral since then.

God Bless Ray Gaster and America

I love it--but the DUmmies think it's hilarious since he used "government trees" to make the sign.

What idiots

How the media, academia, and Hollywood will label Ray Gaster:

1) GREEDY for NOT sharing profits

2) MEAN SPIRITED for NOT paying his share of taxes

3) ANGRY for protesting against the government(if this was 5 years ago and he was saying this about BUSH, he’s be celebrated )

4) UNCARING for NOT spreading the wealth

5) HOMOPHOBIC just because he is straight

6) SEXIST just because he is a male

7) CHRISTIAN RADICAL because he MAY just have a Bible in his work office.

8) TEA-BAGGER

9) UNENLIGHTENED for not understanding that without government, businesses could never develop!

10) and of course,A RACIST for daring to disagree with a black politician.

Idiots is correct.

More likely the 4x4 pressure treated in his sign were probably grown in the state of Ga on a tree farm owned by Georgia Pacific, Canfor, Gilman, or any one of dozens of private companies growning and processing southern yellow pine.

Georgia Pacific hasn’t owned any trees for about 10 years or so, we sold all of the acreage to Plum Creek.

The sad reality is government, at virtually every level, is the greatest impediment to starting and building a succesful business.

Even if Obama’s assertion were true, it completely ignores the obstacles government (and, often, the community at large) puts in the way of success.

I stand corrected.

Plum Creek bought the timber. Koch bought the mills. Blue Linx got the distribution centers.

Support FR and the truth



Henry Ford built it.
He built 1.1/5 million cars before there were any roads.
Using Obama Logic, Henry Ford Built the USA
And Obama has still done diddly squat but rob us all.

If Obama was 100% constipated and had to carve a prying stick to survive a gastro intestinal catastrophy resulting in death, he “ couldn’t build ( even) that!”

KUDOS to Gaster!
