    Obama: "If you have a business, you didnít build that. Somebody else made it happen"

    No wonder our economy is in the shitter. This idiot doesn't know anything about economics.

    There are always exceptions, but how many smart, hard-working, good-at-their-job people do we all know that are unemployed?

    I know exactly zero. My only unemployed friend is a head case who's lazy as shit. Of course it's the economy's fault, not that he has an attitude problem, that he's not skilled outside of one area, or that he'd rather be smoking pot.

    Logically, Obama's also implying that it's not anyone's own fault they're out of work, but a collective one.

    It's this speak that gets votes, just like handouts do.

    nice hand picking of one line out of a speech that doesn't represent at all what he was saying.

    That speech pissed me off to be honest with you.

    I am a firm believer that there are no self made men, but that wasn't the point he was trying to portray in my opinion.

    He is playing the class/race card, and he is playing it from the bottom of the deck.

    In this country it used to be "wow, look at the car Mr. Smith is driving! Someday, if I keep working hard, maybe I will be able to afford the nicer things in life."

    Now it's "wow, look at that car Mr. Smith is driving! He doesn't deserve that, it isn't fair, why does he have a Ferrari and I have a Prius? Just because he was smart enough to get into Harvard and works eighty hours a week doesn't mean he should have nicer things than I do. It's not fair!" Proceeds to hold breath and stamp feet on floor.

    We seem to have forgotten some things is our declining western civilization.

    Life is not fair. Nothing is guaranteed besides death and taxes. So even if you are smarter than most, and work harder than most, you still might not become uber successful. It's called life, pull up your fucking britches, deal with it, and quit whining to me about how unfair it is.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I don't think he's done a good job as president. I don't like the current stuff that's coming of his mouth (and of many politicians) but I think hand picking one line out of a speech to make a point is dishonest.

    I for one heard the whole damn thing. Maybe because it was in my region it got more press, but it really made me mad, and I don't get mad very often, but I was actually saying "fuck you" to the radio.

    I for one will not feel guilty about the success I have had, nor will I bemoan those that are more successful than I am. They give me hope that I too may someday attain their level of success.

    I see millionaires and multi-millionaires every day. And yes, some of them are douche bags. Mostly the douche bags are the ones that were born into it as they didn't put in the hard work to earn it. The "lucky sperm club" as they say.

    However, most millionaires are that way because they were smarter, worked harder, and took more risk than the average person. I could list example after example. In my line of work I really do get a birds eye view on the difference between financially successful and unsuccessful people.
