Without those there would be no government money for your free handouts.

Did you take out a mortgage on your home?

If so, do you deduct the interest on your taxes? (Government "handout" that is subsidizing your home ownership compared to renters)

If you took out a mortgage, was it sold to Fannie, Freddie or GinnieMae (or is it FHA insured) - government is subsidizing your interest rate

Just saying government "handouts" are more than social transfer payments to the indigent

Why does Obama hate lemonade stands? The Fair and Balanced Fox & Friends wants to know - unfortunately the kids fail to stay on message and state they did not build their business by themselves

[youtube]Muue5VsGZiw[/youtube]

Here’s how Brian Kilmeade of “Fox & Friends” tried to elide the experience of Cool Blast Lemonade with the controversial remarks that President Obama made on July 13 about the relationship between business and government.

KILMEADE: Clara, how do you feel about the president saying that you needed help to start this business? And just speak from within . . .(Clara is 7)

CLARA: I would say that’s rude because we worked very hard to build this business, but we did have help.

KILMEADE: And your help came from?

CLARA: Our help came from our investors — our dad and stepmom, along with other friends and family.

Known communist radical David Brooks has some thoughts

Dear Mr. Opinion Guy,

Over the past few years, I’ve built a successful business. I’ve worked hard, and I’m proud of what I’ve done. But now President Obama tells me that social and political forces helped build that. Mitt Romney went to Israel and said cultural forces explain the differences in the wealth of nations. I’m confused. How much of my success is me, and how much of my success comes from forces outside of me?
...

Great companies, charities and nations were built by groups of individuals who each vastly overestimated their own autonomy. As an ambitious executive, it’s important that you believe that you will deserve credit for everything you achieve. As a human being, it’s important for you to know that’s nonsense.
