The perfect counterexample to the “you didn’t build that” meme is any episode of “flip that house”.

The houses are out there for anyone to find

Investor financing is out there for anyone to find

Anyone could learn to bring a contractor to estimate cost of repairs

Anyone could learn how to put the deal together and monitor it.

Anyone could learn how to sell the completed property

Very Very few do, and make significant money doing so. But of course, the persons who do so “didn’t build it themselves”.

And the secrets cost next to nothing used on e-bay, Craigslist and Amazon.

The Slate didn’t care what Akin meant about “legitimate rape”.

The Slate didn’t care what Bush meant by “mission accomplished”.

Barry was caught once again using the Marxist belief that all property is theft and that redistribution is the only moral response to success.

If you think that's something, you better sit down for this. Saturday and Sunday I read two articles that were actually 'nice' to Romney. They were in the --- New York Times! Honest 'Injun'. I'm not kidding. I had to double check the URL to make sure I was at the right website. And yep, it was the NYT.

Like you, I'm stunned. The New York Time's has to be up to something... Either that or the world's ending...
