Obama is dangerous to have running the country and that comment of his really sums it up. It's the mentality in this country now. Nanny state full steam ahead.
Well all that glitters is not gold. They have a bright future, but for now the golden gate is closed.
SEIS DE Maynu!
Well it looks like the Lake(rs) done dried themselves up, but at least they have a fishing boat over on the lower left corner to keep them busy in the offseason. Looks like it needs a little cleaning, but I am sure that there are enough brooms to take care of that task.
I am riding in the MS150 for San Antonio in October of this year. Part of it includes raising funds that get donated to help fund MS research. If you would like to donate my team please go click on this link and click the "Donate" button on the right of the screen. Thank you.
Fuck our team, clown!
Oh you mean the part where he is talking about the infrastructure that business owners take advantage of that they didn't build?
oh you mean the infrastructure that the government built using the money from the people he is reffering too?
but i forgot, the goverment roads built that computer...forgive me.
i.e. don't benefit from the golden goose then kill it once you get yours.
Here is the actual cogent part of the speech.
For what it's worth, he mentions government (research) once in the whole speech, but he mentions "we" and "each other" many times. He is trying to say that we all stand on each other's shoulders. It's not that hard to read this.The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together
i know what he said, and i dont agree with it...then again, im a selfish business owner who didnt build my business myself right?
We give plenty back to society...and not only does he WANT more of what we earned, he also doesnt want us to take credit for it.
Government spending is almost always inefficient spending. Whenever people are operating on government money they have no incentive to be wise with it. They work less hard, take more short cuts than if it was their own business. Recipients of government money do crooked stuff to get even more govt money, for instance schools. When I was in high school, the last month of school we did nothing but had to be there just so the school could get more money. It was a waste of time and added no value to society. Take a dollar, and that same dollar goes a lot further in the private sector than in the public sector because people act differently whenever it's YOUR money.
Government stands to perform certain core functions to society, and anything outside of that is waste and overkill. It's just plain bad for the economy. The commies owned everything in Russia and it failed. China would have already developed by now if they weren't being held back. Governments only stand to serve the people, we don't stand to serve our governments.
we dont need more taxes, we need smaller government
damn right. there's already too much government...dont need them between me and my doctor either.
government should be 1/10 its current size but trimming the government size would mean more people being employed because in 49 of the 50 states, the government is the biggest employer within the boundary of the state.
the fact is the bigger your government is, the more problems you have and then, you need to expand the government & add a few more governmental branches designated to solve these problems, which might not look too bad as a short-term measures but will certainly making things worse in the long term. and that's the way the government's been functioning for the past decades... Rome ain't built in one day tbh
the iceberg can't be thawed in one day imho
Oh and FWIW I would completely support the denial of all future overtime for government employees as a common sense way to save some money. A buddy of mine did an internship at the VA and one of the staff there refused to use a computer (used a typewriter). She ended up taking far far longer to do anything than her coworkers and therefore racked up a lot of overtime so that she could complete her work. She made more from overtime than her base pay annually. This is apparently more common than we would like to think and is exactly the kind of thing you were talking about (M<S) when you said private business is more efficient.
So, Obama basically says "No man is an island" and the right goes apeshit. The funny thing is his sentiment is seemingly Christian, right?
