People do it at Grand Cayman all time. :lol: Sparely populated, basic infrastructure (Airport and electricity), and banking, investment and insurance businesses have no problem at all. :D

Obama overstates the importance of government, teachers etc. If you want to learn how not to become a risk taker and entrepreneur---you get mentored by a teacher.

Same with infrastructure. The world is full of empty stadiums, ports etc. that were built upon political arrogance.

Businesses want stability, less regulations and red tape, and they want to be left the fuck alone (unless you are Solyndra leeches).

Having Obama say businesses owe their success to government and teachers sounds like Obama is listening to his Bachelor of Public Administration advisors/statists on staff that need reaffirmation of their career decisions ahahahahah.

ahahahahah ahohohohoho ahehehehehe

right about now, I think a dumbfuck liberal would ask: "what about bankers that rig the bids of municipal bonds so that usless stadiums, ports, etc, after bribing politicians, so that these things get built? What about the allowance of money in politics causing this corruption?"

but they're so far up the government's butt they can't even risk an internet argument, so don't count on it

ahahahehehehehehehehehahahahehehehehehehehehahahaheheheheheheheheh

There seems to be a pattern of Rmoney quoting Obama totally out of context, dramatically altering the meaning.

Remember this one:

Obama said: ""Even as we face the most serious economic crisis of our time, even as you are worried about keeping your jobs or paying your bills or staying in your homes, my opponent's campaign announced earlier this month that they want to ‘turn the page’ on the discussion about our economy so they can spend the final weeks of this election attacking me instead," Obama said in the speech. "Sen. McCain's campaign actually said, and I quote, ‘If we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose.’"

Rmoney ad then has a clip of Obama saying,"If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose."

You tell me , now , that context doesn't matter.

Craig, Republicans never take Liberals out of context, ever. Shirley Sherrod IS a Black Panther, white hating racist. I saw it on Breitbart!

I'm not about to drink the coolaid like you libs.

Here' what liar Obama won't tell you: you see those roads and those bridges? Who do you think PAID for all that? People paid taxes from what? Their jobs. Who provided those damn jobs? Successful companies. And no, not everyone built those. Do YOU own a successful company? So how about showing some damn respect for people that got off their assess and started successful companies that actually employ people?

There's a dangerous and stupid arrogance going around amongst the losers. They want to sit on their assess, do nothing, and claim responsibility for someone else's success. That is not going to happen.

Obama is a socialist that doesn't think anyone built anything on their own because he never built anything on his own. He's a pot smoking loser supported by other losers.

The problem is the losers and their ilk outnumber the producers. So the losers can gang up and elect their king loser. That's fine. That's how the system works and it's up to those of us that produce goods and services to take the system back. Our turn will come and payback is a real bitch.

For the fellow producers out there:


Stay strong and vote this LOSER out of office!

I believe they are called workers or employees as well as consumers, without which your production remains a dream.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Obama made it very clear that if you had a successful business, it was due to everyone else supposedly building roads, dams, etc. Except only people that PAY TAXES paid to build those roads, dams, etc. The rest just freeload off the work paid for by others.


Pay your taxes, gentlemen, like true RED BLOODED American, MITT ROMN--

Oh--Ohhhhhh.

I was under the impression that the government generally gives contracts to competing private interest to perform jobs. I.E. we pay taxes to the government, and they pay private corporations to perform tasks like building bridges, or manufacturing parking meters. I must have had it wrong. I guess private corporations are the ones who willingly build roads bridges, and infrastructure across the U.S. in a largely uniform manner.

I must have been brainwashed by these dirty socialist lib scumbags. Liberaaaaaals!! *clenches fist*

Pot is evil. I heard it makes white women have sex with black men, unlike alcohol, which allows all women to get raped by all men. Tut tut. Guess Obama's mammy was smokin' da reefer. Am I right?!

This is all very enlightening. Will keep this in mind when venturing into a cafe to order some food.

I should be eternally grateful when a sandwich appears at my table, it didn't just get there by itself.
Somebody invested in buying the bread, lettuce, and mayonnaise.
I couldn't possibly have made one on my own, somebody had to give me some help.
How much should I tip?

Welcome to the nanny state.

Politicians sure know how to belly up to the populist feed trough. Sadly, I feel that both candidates are part of the problem, not the solution.
