Khellendros: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Having a bad day, buddy?

Nope, just enjoying calling out people who say stupid things. Are you going to defend your comment?

Nope, you win : )

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Khellendros: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: abrannan: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Khellendros: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: "You didn't build that" was an affront to every innovator, entrepreneur, and free-thinker that made this Country great.

Sure, if those innovators, entrepreneurs, and free-thinkers spent all of their time building roads and bridges.

I don't understand what your point is. Are roads and bridges only available to an elite class or something?

Clearly you don't understand. The country provides the framework for those entrepreneurs to succeed, be it infrastructure like roads and bridges, electric grids, internet. Civilization where you don't have to worry about constant bribe payout to corrupt officials, or mob shakedowns. Public educations systems that provide you with an education and a well educated pool of potential employees. All of these things figure into the success of an individual entrepreneur, and for them to claim that the government played no role in their success is disingenuous at best.

I totally agree. If he was refuting someone who claimed that most businesses could succeed independent of public infrastructure, then I retract my criticism. I thought he was just stating a retardedly obvious point (the government builds roads) to pander to a bunch of college students.

Here's an idea - listen to the farking speech. Not just the often repeated "you didn't build that" line that gets parroted every six seconds and taken out of context by drooling partisan idiots. Your comment "'You didn't build that' was an affront to every innovator, entrepreneur, and free-thinker that made this Country great" is a completely moronic and absurd statement, and you clearly have no idea where it came from or what he was referring to.

To be direct about it - "you didn't build that" wasn't an affront to anyone. In context, it was a factual statement that businesses need infrastructure to exist. They need pubic services and a safe env ...

I voted for Johnson because I wanted to send a message.

My State is so red, Romney will win by at least 2 million votes, it s the thought that counts. Any of you California Farkers who are in the same boat ought to consider the Libertarian Party.

It is a reasonable alternative to two equally bad extremes.

Best AND worst moment:

Mitt Romney spray-painting his face orange in a very pathetic attempt to appeal to Latinos.

That may have earned him the Oompa Loompa vote, though. Time will tell.
