One of the most lazy and evil of all leftist tropes was said out loud last week by President Toonces. I quote:
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me because they want to give something back. If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m 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 — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
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 you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
My emphasis added above.
Not only did he say this asinine shit, he said it in a particularly contemptuous off-teleprompter way. This wasn’t a gaffe, it was a tell.
I’ve had it with Obama. I’ve had it with anyone who still supports him. After this, you are the fucking enemy. Obama just displayed his worldview and it’s one where those who work hard owe it all to those who don’t. Where success is a lien. Where the fact that your upper-middle-class taxes paid for all those roads and schools doesn’t matter.
I will take no prisoners now. President Toonces, come and get it, you over-privileged, lazy, articulately-incompetent, resentful, narcissistic self-aggrandizing dumbass. I am so ready to write off friends now in this election.
Anyone who doesn’t recoil from what Toonces said above is a parasite and an asshole, I don’t care what else they are. Toonces, bless you. You gave me garlic to detect vampires.
You declared war on us today. Thank you for, in your infinite incompetence, drawing the battle lines so clearly.
There are theories about how and why human societies advance. The only one that makes any sense is the “great man” theory. There are humans whose genius changes everything. Edison, Jefferson, Whitney, Bell, Ford, Gates, Jobs, Locke, Mises, Hayek, Raymond, Torvalds, Churchill, Ghandi, Sadat….I’m just pulling names at random. In most societies, the great men are suppressed. The genius of Western culture has been that it refused to suppress its geniuses. We allowed them to upset entrenched interests. This is why we aren’t the Middle East right now.
Fewer than 1%, far fewer than 1% of human beings, ever invent anything that matters. The only thing that really matters is, Does your society protect and incent the statistically wispy few inventors?
Barack Obama just told us how stuck on stupid he is. That he thinks genius and innovation just grows naturally on roads and fibre cables, like moss, and requires nothing else to be effective. Obama’s never invented anything. He’s in that middling-smart IQ range that is smart enough to know they can fuck with people to make money but not smart enough to actually produce anything and kind of pissed off about it because they’re too dumb to admit that their Ivy League education turned them into hothouse flowers who are nothing more than legal con men. Every day of his life, Obama lives in subconscious anxiety that the chimerical system he depends on will collapse since he has no idea what it depends on. Good. I hope it makes you smoke yourself to death, you stupid bitch. Please don’t shoot up a movie theater.
Here’s what innovation requires, at minimum, Obama, you big-eared moron:
* rule of law
* reasonable IP protection
* PROFIT. Innovation rock stars should get paid like Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jordan.
* Protection from politically connected, entrenched interests.
And… drum roll please….
* small government. Big government will always be captured by entrenched interests.
Here’s what Obama told us he thinks (I use the word “think” loosely):
* Most everybody is working hard.
* Most everybody is working smart.
* If you’re doing better than the people to your right or to your left, it’s because you’re lucky.
Fuck you, Toonces. Even though your stupid life is about luck and being pretty, that’s not how the rest of us make it happen. President Kardashian, indeed.
I work harder than most people. I work at a place where most people work harder than most people, and I work harder than a lot of them. I’m no millionaire. Most millionaires I know, and I know a bunch of them, work WAY harder than I do. They think work/life balance is just an excuse pussies like me use to justify being lazy.
Nearly everyone who is poor in this country is a lazy fuck. 45 million Americans are on food stamps right now. 90% of them are lazy fucks.
10 Million Americans are on Social Security disability, with the ranks swelling rapidly as the 99 weeks of unemployment runs out for more and more lazy fucks. I promise you, at least half of those people are lazy fucks.
Don’t get me started on unemployment benefits. I have friends and family who are lazy fucks who’ve found jobs suddenly on week 100. Strangely, the cushy government “safety net” seems to bring out the “lazy fuck” in a lot of people.
Section 8…If I were in charge, I’d drone-strike every single Section 8 rental and reimburse the landlords.
Not only do all you lazy fucks not know what it takes to become a multi-millionaire, you wouldn’t do it if you knew. I know, and I won’t do it. News flash: the great majority of millionaires in the USA started out without having a million dollars. Some of them gamed the system or Kardashianed it, like Obama did. But most of them did great work that benefitted a lot of other people.
I wish the working poor would do the math on how much they’ve “given back to society” when calculating their resentment rights. Oh, right, I forgot. The working poor hate math.
In most cases, the working poor have been fully compensated with their paychecks. There is no surplus value that can be attributed to them.
All those iPhones you poor people can afford even though you’re poor? In a country where Steve Jobs didn’t die early as a multimillionaire, none of you would have iPhones. Divide the number of iPhones out there by Jobs’ wealth: each of you paid Jobs a “tax” of about $109 for the iPhone. Forget everything else he did: Do you own a Mac computer? Have you seen a Pixar movie? Do you have an iPod? The “tax” you paid Jobs keeps going down and down for each of those you benefited from. But let’s call it $109. Would you be willing to not have an iPhone or iPod or i-anything, for your kids to have never seen any of the Toy Story movies or Cars or Up or Finding Nemo? Seriously, let’s do the deal–you can even keep your previous experiences. For $109 you agree to never again use an Apple product or watch a Pixar movie. Deal?
Well, Obama is snuffing out the next Steve Jobs. If you vote for him, enjoy watching your Pixar movies on your iPhone till it breaks, because that’s as good as it will ever get. Nothing new from now on.
I wouldn’t trade my life for Jobs’ life. Or Edison’s. Or Bill Gates’ life or even Tom Cruise’s. They have better cars and better TVs but I get to watch my TV with only occasional work interruptions. These are exceptionally talented, nutty, smart, neurotic, driven, obsessed, energetic people who thrive on that kind of stress and isolation and exhaustion and adrenaline and epiphany and egotism and whatever. Turn ’em loose! A society that does that thrives. We each give them a relatively small amount of money and in turn they give us their lives and genius. We win.
Were I ever to shake President Toonces hand, I would hold it tight so I could punch him harder in the face. Toonces takes our money and gives back value only to his patrons and minons–the unions, the crony capitalists, the entrenched interests. Obama is the ultimate conservative, protecting status quo economic and ideological interests against innovators. Imagine if we’d elected this vampire in the 18th Century. Free leeches for everyone!
I’m not likely to shake Obama’s hand. I’d rather stick my hand up a horse’s ass, which would be about the same thing. So, for the Federale douchebags who might think this post is a threat against the President, I have no intention of ever shaking Barack Obama’s hand. I’d rather shake the hoof of Satan. I will never go to one of his events. If he were to knock on my door, yes, I would punch him in the face. I have a NO SOLICITING sign. Keep your little bitch off my property, and he’s perfectly safe.
