When it comes to politics, they think voters are stupid, don’t have time to question their lies, or don’t care!
Why else would career politician, Hillary Clinton, Professor Elizabeth Warren repeat, and community organizer a.k.a., Entreprenever and chief, Barack Obama’s well worn rhetoric, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” referring to private businesses being dependent of big government.
We have a problem and it is a corrupt government and a complicit mainstream media. Who has time to fact check all the lies we hear every day courtesy of the Obama administration and echoed by the media? Take as an example the huge waste in billions of stimulus dollars Obama spent as payback for getting him elected.
So how is it possible that big government can provide corporations and businesses with the vehicle to succeed? I decided to look on the popular website HowStuffWorks.com to see if they agreed with liberals. This is an excerpt: In 2009, Community Organizer and President Obama’s government spent a staggering $3.5 trillion dollars and raised $2.1 trillion in individual and corporate taxes — still leaving a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars.
The Government doesn’t earn money! “Government Funded”, “Government Subsidized”, “Government Money”, “Government Grant” … all mean “TAXPAYER FUNDED”, “TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED”, “TAXPAYER MONEY”, or “TAXPAYER GRANT”. They’re all money from YOUR pocket. Conclusion: The Government spends money! Currently we are spending or speeding our way toward $18 trillion in debt.
In fact, 55% of all tax dollars come from small business that are spent on government programs, including infrastructure, roads and bridges. When a small business person fills up at the pump, on average, we pay almost 50 cents per gallon to the government for taxes on gasoline, approximately 13 cents on every dollar. Add toll roads to the equation and in many parts of the country the cost to taxpayers for infrastructure goes up.

“To say what he (Obama) said is to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple Computer or that Bill Gates didn’t build Microsoft or that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor Company or that Ray Kroc didn’t build McDonald’s or that Papa John’s didn’t build Papa John’s Pizza. This is the height of foolishness. It shows how out of touch he is with the character of America. It’s one more reason his policies have failed. It’s one more reason why we have to replace him in November.” — Mitt Romney.
Even the Washington Post gave the “You didn’t build that…” liberal nonsense credence, giving him 3 Pinocchio’s.
Here’s what Charles Krauthammer had to say, “The argument between left and right is about what you do beyond infrastructure. It’s about transfer payments and redistributionist taxation, about geometrically expanding entitlements, about tax breaks and subsidies to induce actions pleasing to central planners. It’s about free contraceptives for privileged students and welfare without work — the latest Obama entitlement-by-decree that would fatally undermine the great bipartisan welfare reform of 1996. It’s about endless government handouts that, ironically, are crowding out necessary spending on, yes, infrastructure.”
Professor Elizabeth Warren has never worked in the private sector. She is my favorite definition of a politician, unemployed and unemployable. What she fails to say is businesses pay the lion share of the taxes so everyone in this country can enjoy our roads and bridges, including Elizabeth Warren with her progressive anti-business rhetoric.
Enter career politician Hillary Clinton. There is and there will be hundreds of thousands, if not millions of interviews, videos, news articles, and blogs, written about Clinton, but most assuredly the one she is going to have to walk back more often than most, is this video above about federally mandated minimum wage jobs, and about businesses and technology not being the engine of the US economy and jobs.
After all, The Race Against The Machines has already been lost. There will be no minimum wage jobs in the future. People who know how to use a caulk gun will be highly paid by those who do can’t pound a nail.
My prediction is that Hillary Clinton will be pounded back into the stone age by 2016. There will be a 3rd generation POTUS in 2016, like US Senator Marco Rubio, who knows how to use a smartphone. More on this when somebody is ready to listen.
