Listening to President Barack Obama (D) whining and complaining
during his news conference/campaign speech Thursday that if the selfish and greedy Republicans won't pass his jobs bill now!
and tax the millionaires and billionaires now!
the whole country--especially his union and/or lefty backers--won't get its necessary jobs jolt now!
was quite a contrast to the tributes paid to Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs and his friend Steve Wozniak started Apple in Jobs' parents' garage as a pair of 20 somethings, all without government help.
And Apple grew--again without government help. Microsoft. Google. Facebook. All started without government help by a bunch of kids (I'm over 40; 20 and 30 somethings are kids).
They discovered and grew without government help.
They created thousands of jobs... without government help.
They created wealth for thousands; many became millionaires, some even billionaires... all without government help.
They made life better, easier, safer, more productive... all without government.
They paid more than their share of taxes while receiving less than their share of government. And that's why they prospered and succeeded. All without government help.
As the late President Ronald Reagan (R) liked to say,
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
