Put this in your, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that” comment and smoke it:
Obama: ‘We Don’t Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country’
11:59 AM, Oct 5, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER
President Obama, speaking in Virginia, said, “We don’t believe anybody is entitled to success in this country.”
“This country does not just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top,” Obama said, according to a rush transcript of the remarks. “It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy does not grow from the top-down, it grows from the middle-out. We do not believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country. But we do believe in opportunity. We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibilities are rewarded and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody’s doing their fair share. And everybody’s paying by the same rules. That is the country believe in. That is what we have been fighting for the last four years. That is what we’re going to put in place in the next four years if you reelect me as president of the United States of America.”
You see, that’s the difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals say everybody ought to be the same, everybody ought to have their wealth redistributed and doled out to everybody else such that as Karl Marx famously stated:
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”
You see, conservatives don’t think so. We think if a small business owners works a hundred hours a damn week to make his or her business successful, that business owner is entitled to his or her success. Conservatives think if a smart investor risks his or her money on an investment that succeeds, that investor is entitled to his or her success. We think that people who work harder or who work smarter than other people ought to be entitled to keep what they worked harder or smarter than others FOR. In the case of rich people, we even think that rich people who worked hard their entire lives to give their children an inheritance are entitled to GIVE their kids that inheritance. Just as we think those kids are entitled to receive what their parents worked so hard to give them.
Do you know what you ARE entitled to in America under Obama’s failed presidency? Food stamps:
[W]e are confident that no readers will be surprised to learn that foodstamp usage for both persons and households, has jumped to a new all time record.
At 46,681,833 persons hooked on SNAP, the July number crossed the previous record posted a short month before, as the foodstamp curve continues ‘plumbing’ newer and greater heights each month.
More disturbing is that in the same month, the number of US households reliant on foodstamps rose by a whopping 99,493 to 22,541,744. Assuming a modest 2 persons per household, the increase means that more people went on Foodstamps in the month of July than found jobs (181,000 according to the latest revised NFP data). Furthermore, it appears that buying votes has become a tad more expensive in the past month. After the benefit per household dipped to a record low in April at just $275.81, this has since retraced some of its losses and is now at an inflationary $277.92. Oh well: inflation.
Adding the number of disability recipients in the month of July, which in that month rose by 20,474, and one can see why the government is quite happy with dumping this particular release long after everyone was on their way back home for the weekend.
Finally, and putting it all into perspective, since December 2007, or the start of the Great Depression ver 2.0, the number of jobs lost is 4.5 million, while those added to foodstamps and disability rolls, has increased by a unprecedented 21 million. Oh and about $7 or $8 trillion in debt. Who’s counting really.
Which is why you can bet your farm that this government-subsidized princess will be sure to vote Obama:
I wish I could go to the home of every liberal (like a liberal version Santa Claus) and take away every single toy their kids come out of the house with. A liberal’s kid comes out with a new bike, I’m going to take that bike. That kid isn’t entitled to that bike. And I’m going to redistribute it to some other poor kid. If a liberal’s kid comes out with the hot new toy, why, just how in the hell is that kid entitled to that? Santa Claus is coming to town to redistribute the damn wealth. And I’m going to make sure that every fat-assed, lazy, good-nothing sluggard gets what every hard-working person worked so hard to build. Because I think that “you didn’t build that” and “you’re not entitled to it.”
People who work hard and suceed are FAR more entitled to what they earn than every single liberal parasite on earth combined.
