SlothB77: The fact is, five people open five restaurants on a road. Two go out of business. Three become successful because they provide great food with great service in a pleasant atmosphere at a reasonable price. Let's demonize them. Their success can only be attributed to the help they got, the collective and the road. And because of that, they should pay more taxes, which will be redistributed by the government to the two restaurants on the same road that failed.


Some of those restaurants are actually PUSHED OUT of business by the government, you know. I opened a restaurant that sold Patriot Burgers and Freedom Fries and, every one of my combos was named after a Great Conservative Hero, and Obama's brownshirts came in and put me right out of business. They made up some bullshiat excuse about how my Reagan and Cheese didn't have their fancy "USDA" stamp on it, and how the flies kept getting in my Double Oliver North with Bacon, and how that wasn't "sanitary". *I* don't think we need more regulations like that, but what do I know? I'm just a Small Business Owner.

Fox News has finally managed to find some business experts who can speak at an intellectual level understood by the average Fox News viewer.

I loved that place!

The food loved liberty so much, it couldn't stand having its hard-earned nutrients taxed away by my alimentary tract.

So every time I ate there, my meal would Go Galt and seek freedom via the closest orifice, as soon as possible.

Anyway, that's how I saw it.

LIVE FREE OR DIARRHEA!

In breaking news, Bain Capital invested in the lemonade stand this afternoon. In order to save the stand from imminent bankruptcy they had the stand take out a 1.2 million dollar loan. Both of the customer service representatives were fired and replaced by a phone bank in India. The lemonade will now be manufactured in China. Bain will receive 1.19 million dollars in consulting fees for the brilliant efforts to save this struggling company. When asked to comment ion this Development CEO Mitt Romney stated "I take full credit for saving this upstanding American firm. I will be retroactively retiring in 3 years , so I also have no involvement in any way."

SlothB77: Look, I get Obama is saying government built the roads and bridges (and they funded those with tax dollars collected from businesses and workers). But if all you needed to be a successful business was to throw a road in front of it, why are so many businesses unsuccessful? Take an unsuccessful business. It is just sitting there. All we need to do is throw a road and bridge in front of it and all of a sudden it will be successful? Nope. Absolutely not.


Take a successful business and remove the road to it. Will it all of a sudden become unsuccessful? Probably.

MaxxLarge: I love how Focks has no trouble pulling a frankly retarded stunt like this, but Michelle Obama's anti child-obesity initiative is somehow "indoctrinating children with partisan rhetoric."

I seriously have no idea how these hypocritical assholes sleep at night.

What's missing is the obvious implications. If you didn't build it, we can take it from you. It's not theft; it's restitution. You didn't build the roads and bridges and Internet. You didn't educate your workers in government illiteracy factories (but you did get to finance the foregoing through your taxes). So you don't deserve a six-figure income.

Which, thanks to the government, isn't acid-rain water and lemons with carcinogenic pesticides.

You know what I miss? The Charlton Heston "Just Try To Pry 'Em Out Of Our Cold Hands" Frappes (or "Milkshakes" for those in the uncivilized regions)

I hope in honor of their Fox guests, the girls had a special pitcher of lemonade that was made with neither government help nor interference. And I hope the Fox crew spent the whole ride back to the studio battling "freedom diarrhea" from the fetid water and bug-infested citrus.

Is the lemonade stand located in a public sidewalk?

Do any of their costumers use public roads to reach them?

Did they learn the math to calculate their costs and profits at a public school?

Did their "investors" (aka mom and dad) attend a public school or university in order to attain the educational level that was key to securing their current employment and thus raising the capital to invest in the lemonade stand?

Are lemons purchased at a supermarket (can we then assume those lemons reached the supermarket in a truck that drove on a public roads)? Did their parents drive on similar roads to reach the supermarket?
