It takes a village?

Over 20 people fainted during this speech in Roanoke, Va. Probably because they couldn't believe he was continuing the line of B.S. that Elizabeth Warren started a year ago.

I was just going to leave this here and let you come to your own conclusions - but without the TAXES to hand out to the cousins and cronies who built the roads and "crumbling infrastructure" where else would the government come up with the money? And if you look at the history of paved roads - those were PRIVATE enterprises, including the Pennsylvania Turnpike. And if we're going to look at the history of governments moving people and goods along - let's have that argument. How's the Post Office doing? How's Chicago's CTA doing right now?

Sure, I got help from mentors and great teachers - but I didn't see those folks sitting with me until 2 AM getting my work done. I hit those deadlines, Mr. Obama didn't. Fairly sure the CUSTOMERS make the business work.

“He didn't invent iron ore and blast furnaces, did he?”


“Rearden. He didn't invent smelting and chemistry and air compression. He couldn't have invented his Metal but for thousands and thousands of other people. His Metal! Why does he think it's his? Why does he think it's his invention? Everybody uses the work of everybody else. Nobody ever invents anything.”

She said, puzzled, “But the iron ore and all those other things were there all the time. Why didn't anybody else make that Metal, but Mr. Rearden did?”
