So according to Fearless Reader, I didn’t build my business.
President Obama, in a speech to supporters, suggested business owners owe their success to government investment in infrastructure and other projects — saying “if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.”
Obama’s comment Friday during a campaign stop in Roanoke, Va., came just days after he urged Congress to extend tax cuts enacted during the Bush administration only to families earning less than $250,000 annually — part of his argument that top earners have an obligation to pay more to trim the deficit.
“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,” he said. “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.”

I started this blog five years ago in August because we were getting ready to move from Ohio to California and I thought it would be a good place to dump photos, let people know what was happening and in general keep in touch.
I grabbed WordPress (mainly because I hate Google) and a theme, then another theme, and another, until I found this one and settled on it. I knew nothing really about the blogging world, except that I had stumbled across Rachael Lucas’ site and was reading her stuff, which led me to other stuff, etc….
Now, I’m running my own business out of a WordPress blog and made my first sale, I have a son, I’m back in New Mexico, and the wife and I are thinking of adding another member to the vast right wing conspiracy.
It really has been a long strange trip.
