    "We Built This" (the GOP's "Call Me Maybe"), is the catchphrase of the season, and it'll be a major theme of the Republican National Convention at the end of this month. The irony? They'll be holding that convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, formerly the Tampa Bay Ice Palace, which was publicly financed.

    GOP Will Tout 'We Built This' In Arena Built With Public Funds - Politics - The Atlantic Wire

    Oh, the "irony".

    Republicans will probably win because the rest of America is more interested in Kim Kardashian.

    I wonder if they'll use "legitimate rape" too? Like Haliburton is legitimately taping the Northern Tier of PA with their tracking.... but what the fuck....who needs drinking water?

    Seems to Me that in order to pay their fair share, businesses pay not only their taxes, but over half of the populations as well.

    I see a forum, built by business, using local labor, local skill (probably even some union labor and skill in there too!), all for the purpose of community events.

    What I DON'T see is a forum built using government carpenters, government plumbers, government brick layers, government electricians, government catering, government designers.....etc., etc...

    However, the direct fact that this forum likely cost 50 times more than it should have can be attributed to government lackeys, government politicians, and government regulations.

    wow...you see all of that? You must be the Amazing Carnac. I see a taxpayer funded building that wouldn't exist without public dollars....That a business profited off of and gave some good people decent jobs for a while.

    Do you honestly think that government has its own money?

    That money comes from us.

    It comes from businesses. It comes from communities. It is often seed money from an investor that builds that kind of building.

    What it is NOT is something government built.

    Built by business, paid for with tax payer money. Yes, the horror, the horror.
