Last night my four year old counted to 100. At first I thought this was a nice accomplishment for a pre-school child. But then I remembered the words of our President and I reconsidered what I should say to her.
 
I told her that she did not learn to count to 100 on her own. Someone else created our base ten system of numbering. Someone else created the card with the numbers she read. Someone else took her to school and taught her. I remonstrated her for her arrogance in being proud of "her" accomplishment, as it was not her own.

I was glad I had not missed this opportunity to correct her. The odd thing is, now she doesn't want to learn to count past 100. I am completely confused by her sudden disinterest. Can someone explain this to me?

I did. And I actually thought about doing that, but I can't now because Snopes will get it and you'll all find out who I am. :(


In fact, why don't you guys spread it around and say it came from Rocket on SomethingSensitive. We'll be famuous!

Hold on, I can't laugh at posting this. Someone else wrote this and someone else invented the english language and writing system we have today.

I feel so ashamed.

Obama speech where he says:

Quote

    There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me ó because they want to give something back.  They know they didnít ó look, if youíve been successful, you didnít get there on your own.  You didnít get there on your own.  Iím always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.  There are a lot of smart people out there.  It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.  Let me tell you something ó there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.  (Applause.)

         If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.  There was a great teacher somewhere in your life.  Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.  Somebody invested in roads and bridges.  If youíve got a business ó you didnít build that.  Somebody else made that happen.  The Internet didnít get invented on its own.  Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

         The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.  There are some things, just like fighting fires, we donít do on our own.  I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service.  That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

Basically pandering to his audience saying just cause your a failure doesnt mean you arent smart and hardworking and beautiful and special

if it was a republican who said that last part: "There are some things, just like fighting fires, we donít do on our own.  I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service.  That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires."

it would be thrown all over SA on dumb posts that looked like this

Hahaha it's great because business happens in spite of government. A lot of business doesn't happen because of government. Look at all the taxi drivers who don't own their own cabs or who do not become drivers in the first place because of the cost of a medallion, the supply of which is artificially restricted to protect those already in the profession. Only government could maintain that kind of business-killing regulation.

Without government intervention, the only way to keep would-be taxi drivers out of the profession is intimidation and violence, and that's the only time when the government should really step in. Law enforcement and the courts.

Even if you want government for infrastructure and shit, that would really be done on the state, county and city levels, not the federal level. Okay, I might buy Obama's (really, Elizabeth Warren's) argument for reasons why the states and counties should intervene sparingly, but not the federal government.

The intellectual dishonesty it takes to believe that's what he said and then to spread it around is staggering. I thoroughly expect Reason to carry water for Romney, but this is pretty disturbing. The fact that the context of the speech is a few clicks from you at any given time and still you people choose to disregard fact in favor of a lie that fits your desired reality is shameful.

Thanks.

I wonder if Obama would say to bin Laden, ."Those buildings you blew up? You didn't do that by yourself. You had volunteers on planes, and government officials covering you and a whole lot of Jews to help you along the way."

The "if you got a business -- you didn't build that" was legit poor translation to text. He stopped himself mid sentence and was referring to the other shit he was saying. Translated properly it was "if you've got business you didn't build the roads and bridges and the fire dept" or whatever. The memes imply he was saying "if you have a business you literally didn't build it."

Sorry it annoys me that people say this because it makes it easy for people to just dismiss criticism of what he was saying because they are misquoting it, when what he was actually saying was fucking stupid and deserves direct ridicule. Honestly at the time when I read the "hilarious" memes it led to me swallowing more blue pills instead of thinking critically about what he was saying. It's counterproductive.

What he was actually saying: "people who are successful think they got there because they are smart and talented, but that's wrong they got there because of roads and bridges and their teachers and other forms of government assistance therefore they should pay some unspecified amount of high taxes." This is a fucking retarded perspective for a dozen different reasons, not the least of which that is sets up no framework for how to gauge what is fair in terms of taxes, just that for any arbitrary rate the rich probably aren't paying "their fair share."

He's got a vague point--if you didn't have taxes pay the govt to maintain the roads, police the streets, have an army to stop invading, etc you wouldn't have much of a business. But only the most hardcore libertarians would try to debate that framework. The actual debate on taxes is how they are used for less basic stuff, but Obama was trying to conflate that. "WELL IF YOU DON'T WANT GIANT GOVT WITH PROGRAMS FOR YOUFS AND GIBS AND ACADEMIC FUNDING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE RESEARCH I GUESS YOU DON'T WANT ROADS OR BRIDGES OR AN ARMY HUH?!"

The misquoting thing is a lot like what happened with Mitt Romney--when he said "Corporations are people, my friend" he wasn't literally saying CORPORATE ENTITIES ARE THE SAME AS PEOPLE, he was saying that corporations are made up of people. But because Mittensbot 2000 it came out wrong and the press jumped on it to make him sound ridiculous.

It's really a shame Obama didn't get torn a new one at the time for literally making a variation on the BUT WHO WILL BUILD THE ROADS argument. Libertarianism was still alive and not 100% sad, too.
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"
