    The first Automobile in America was made by the Dureya Brothers in 1893 yet the DMV (as we know it now) wasn't established until 1915!

    Question for you Liberals: How is it possible that a revolutionary vehicle like that was made without the direct support of a giant gov't agency?

    Because back then America still had an A. Had some gubment idiot shown up at their shop with a questionnaire he would have either caught a bullet or wound up swinging from a tree.........as it should be. Think about that the next time some Nazi at the airport wants to tickle your fuzzy, murkins.

    How was it possible for Microsoft to get started when the top tax rate was 70% or so?

    When they started they had little or no money so they weren't IN the top tax bracket.

    Ah, but the Right would have us believe that innovation is being throttled by high taxes. That the super rich 'job creators' have no incentive to do anything because they can't bear the thought of paying an extra 3% on their last million so they'd rather not even make it.

    So again, why was Microsoft developed if Bill Gates knew he'd some day face a 70% tax rate on some of his millions?

    And yet the Wright brothers famous first flight was financed by government monies, just like the "green technologies" of today.

    Oh wait, it wasn't.
