Excepting the poor turtle did nothing wrong, and isn’t trying to capitalize off his position, this is dead on target.

Great one...

Post turtle indeed.

Nobody gets rich on their own - they get rich through voluntary cooperation and association with others.

The problem with the Left is that they think that they are justified in forcing cooperation and association, involuntarily.

My uncle used to always tell me, “In life, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for so, you better look for something worthwhile.” And, I’ve made this my mantra ever sense.

In my opinion, if people have found success in their lives, it is simply because that was what they were looking for. On the other and, if they’ve found mysery and poverty then they should have kept looking for something better.

I’ll take it a step further. If you’re looking for excuses, you’ll find those anywhere. Look for progress and it’s right there to be found as well. Drugs, sex, stability, money, friends, enemies. It’s all out there...whatever you’re looking for.....

I for one looked for a pretty wife, a fulfilling career, and season tickets to the Raiders. Guess what? That’s what I found.

So, Mr. President no one makes it on their own as you suggest but, thats not appreciating those who’ve help us along the way is really not the problem as you are obviously suggesting.

The problem is with people looking for the government to help rather than looking to help themselves.

Hmm who gets there with more “help”, a working person or a family of fat welfare recipients who get all their food, clothing, education and shelter from the taxpayers?

Obama and the leftists are evil idiots.

What on earth has a successful, law abiding person done wrong? They pay for all the services they receive by paying tons of taxes.

Otoh we have tons of able bodied persons who live on welfare their entire lives! Aren’t they the ones who don’t do it “on their own”?

Screw you Obama! The liberals are peddling awful sick crap.

The concept he is spouting is idiotic. Roads were created in order to serve the interests of all people, and are paid for by taxes. Some such taxes, like the gas tax, are designed to make the person who uses more of the service or object pay more for that privilege.

Postal service is the same - you pay for what you send.

Electricity, heating fuel - all the same.

Taxes on property - the larger and better the property, the higher the taxes.

The imbecile-in-chief would prefer we ignore the fact that the “rich” who have made their fortunes by recognizing a need/opportunity and filling the niche pay for the common services they use. They pay dearly, indeed!

Let’s apply Obama logic to Obama himself.

Obama didn’t become president on his own. He needed people to donate to him, campaign for him and vote for him. And he needs the taxpayers to pay his salary.

So... how come he’s the only one who gets to live at the White House? How fair is that? Why doesn’t he have to share with everyone who made it possible?

The rich are talented at allocating limited resources wisely and creating new wealth and jobs. The poor and the government are talented at foolishly allocating limited resources and destroying wealth and jobs. Why take from the wise and give to the fools? The rich have only 24 hours in a day like the rest of us, have nothing more to buy, so they invest their wealth. That’s their function in a healthy free market. The O’Bastard shouldn’t demotivate them.

Most of the folks who helped me were bright, educated and motivated folks who willingly shared their knowledge and talent. I now find myself mentoring young, bright and educated young folks in kind. I’m generous with those who seek to learn and aspire to better themselves and so are most conservatives I know.

All of the wealthy people I know got that way by creating/providing some good or service that people wanted/needed to make their own lives better.

In other words, they got rich by helping people help themselves.

And, they didn't do it alone. They took a lot of people with them on their way up and they all did well together.

Only politicians, bureaucrats and people like Soros got rich by hurting and taking advantage of people, but you don't last long in business doing that.

Those are obama's people, like minded, soulless floaters and fellow travelers, stinking up the place as they swirl their way down the drain.

Obama is just preparing America for the riot surprise
he and his community organizers have planned, using the Obama equivalent of his brown shirt movement.

Obanma and his minions , you see, are fascists. Not that the country may ever know, unless he is NOT defeated in November.

Then the country will be hammered on the anvil of the Obama Utopia.Obama and his minions now wage war on America to that end.

Good Read:

'YOU DIDN'T GET THERE ON YOUR OWN

In one sense, he's actually right -- You didn't get there on your own. Your 'getting there' benefited countless people who associated themselves with you.
