    It's quite simple proof too. We hear from the rich that people should stop whining "and go start a business". Thats the answer to everything these days...."go start a business".

    Well, what if the utopia occurred, and EVERY single person in America did just that?

    What if every single one of our 300,000,000 people started their own business today? The question is......with 300,000,000 businesses, and thus 300mil owners, WHO WOULD DO THE WORK????

    Would we have 300,000,000 SUCCESSFUL businesses that were owned and operated by a single person? What kind of products or services could possibly be offered by that many 1 man businesses?

    How many of that 300,000,000 would succeed with ONLY 1 EMPLOYEE....that being the owner.

    It'd argue less than 1%.

    Proof that, if you own a successful business, you ALONE did not build that.

    wow, this was a guy that was "convseervative'? LOLOLOLOLOL...I've refrained from calling you a fake or a kook, but this crap is rediculous, it's not EASY to start and run a business...therefore most people dont do it. It's much EASIER to collect a paycheck.

    The first flaw in your argument:

    No one ever said the answer to everything is to go start a business.

    The second flaw in your argument:

    The fact that a business has employees does not demonstrate that the business would exist without the owner.

    Bucs90 was never a conservative. Nothing is more common that lifelong liberals claiming they were once conservative or that they voted for Reagan. There's a whole chapter about that in the progressive propaganda manual.

    Can no one refute my premise then? I'll give an example.......

    Jerry Richardson is the owner/founder of the NFL's Carolina Panthers. He was also the owner founder of Hardee's/Carl Jrs.

    Now...he founded the Panthers. Put a shit ton of money into it. He deserves a lot of credit for the successful NFL franchise. But did HE alone build it? How many passes has he caught or thrown? How many tackles has he made? How many hot dogs and beers has he walked up and down the stadium on a hot day to sell? How many bricks in that stadium did he lay?

    How many gamedays did he paint the white lines on the field? How many Pro Bowl players did he tape up and rehab after injury? How many sleepless nights did he spend scouting video of the opposing teams?

    How many highways did he patrol to ensure fans got to the games and got home safely? How many TV's did he donate to homes so that all that TV revenue could be generated?

    He founded it. He funded it. He had a huge hand in building it. But did HE ALONE build it? No. Same with his fast food business. Countless other people chipped in on that.

    And the arrogant attitude of some on the right and some in business of trying to stand on a soap box and look down on anyone below them, as if they have never contributed to society, is sick.

    Yep. Taken way out of context.

    But....in the new fad of right wing business arrogance, there are many who take it as an outright insult if someone suggests that maybe...just maybe....other people assisted them in their success.

    To suggest that means you obviously are an America hating commie.
