The Cobs Have This Idea That You Will Write This Post For Us

Oh yes you will.
Lefties are orgasmic over this video. I had no idea my small business was such a public burden. Wow.
Good to know.

Have at it, darling Morons. I'll be checking out the comments and main-paging the awesome ones. I have a good feeling about this concept.

Above the video AWESOME comment:

267 Is she f*cking insane?

I gotta ask.

Its the taxes *I* pay as a small business owner, and as a private citizen, that funds the roads, the police, the army, and so on. I pay for this now. Right f*cking now.

And you don't think I built my goddamned business on my own? You don't think I am the only one who was willing to take a f*cking risk on my vision? You think that society as a whole contributed to my business growing and being successful?

So, in the deepest dark of the credit crunch, where was society with the capital to back the asset purchases I needed to fulfill orders when the banks wouldn't? The banks that are partially publicly owned, too big to fail, yet probably should?

What grew my business was the intense backbreaking labor I put into my business. The complex financial arrangements, and the risks *I* f*cking took. The danger to my families well being by literally risking every f*cking thing we had in order to pursue this, while this idiot and her fellow travelers were busy raping larger versions of businesses and denying their rightful owners their assets handing everything over to their buddies.

Lady, you have no business being in government. You have no business teaching. You have no f*cking clue what it takes to start, grow, run a business.

Yes, it is quite galling to work 6, sometimes 7 days a week, get F*CKED by the government six ways to Sunday in ways that employees never get to know about, and be told about all this wonderful 'help' we received.

19 "Mr. Rearden, the law which you are denouncing is based on the highest principle - the principle of the public good."

"Who is the public? What does it hold as its good? There was a time when men believed that 'the good' was a concept to be defined by a code of moral values and that no man had the right to seek his good through the violation of the rights of another. If it is now believed that my fellow men may sacrifice me in any manner they please for the sake of whatever they deem to e their own good, if they believe that they may seize my property simply because they need it - well, so does any burglar. There is only this difference: the burglar does not ask me to sanction his act."

-- Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged.

49 Actually, about 50% of the population didn't pay for any of that. The "rich" guys who run the businesses paid for it, you condescending elitist scrunt.

80 Hidden (but not really) in Warren's idea of the implied social contract is the assumption on their part that they are the ones who are going to set the terms of the relationship between the government (them) and its citizens (you). They truly believe we should all be grateful for what the government "gives" us, not stopping for a minute to realize that the wealth of government cannot exist without the work of its citizens.

The concept of individual liberty, of citizens as autonomous actors who have the power to establish what relationship we should have with our government confuses and enrages them. It's astounding, but welcome, to see a candidate express their beliefs in such stark terms. This is the American left.

235 The thrust of these comments is clear. (Leave aside the fact that the wars were in response to being attacked. (She's right about the drug benefit not being paid for, though.))
"Pay it forward" means, to people like her, "do as the government says." The end state of this philosophy is corporatism, in which only large corporations who can satisfy the government's requirements survive and flourish. The other name for corporatism is fascism. This is the end state of her philosophy, and she knows it and work toward it with the fervor of a zealot. That's what we're fighting against: the death of individual initiative and success and the rise of the all-encompassing corporatist state.

OK, that's enough. You get the gist.
This comments thread is the cat's tits. You guys are hilarious and well-informed.
It's no wonder Breitbart desires you. The covetous bitch. I'll cut him if he tries to take my Morons.
I'll do it.

Best retort of all, thanks to Kratos.
