    It would be so wonderful not to have the Fords Duponts Gates Rockefellers, Jobs types around anymore. Who needs their stinkin jobs and products anyway. What was so bad about the Stone Age anyway??

    Yeah, imagine a world without reasonably priced cars, thousands of useful chemicals like plastics and paint, personal computers and cheap gas.

    You're fond of working in the Aechulian Handaxe Industry, I presume? Or grubbing for your fruits, roots, and nuts.

    No Henry Fords, No Alexander Graham Bells, no Thomas Edisons, No Bill Gates, No Steve Jobs, No Eric Schmidts. No birth controls, must use the cowboy's old sock technique, no antibiotics. Catch a dose of clap in passing you die, or spend the rest of your life in a cloud of senility.
    Its American excellence that produced these wonders, and some human beings incidentally became very wealthy as a result, but you Libs are like envious Cows in a meadow, content to chew on their cud, and insisting on spending your time defecating on them.
