So Nancy Pelosi now claims that Apple (under Steve Jobs and Jony Ive) didn't create the iPhone - government did :eusa_doh:

Let's pretend for a moment that's not one of the ten dumbest things ever said by Nancy Pelosi (which it unquestionably is - and that is no small feat) - it's comical to hear her declare that as if it were a positive thing. Sweetie....all you're doing is sitting up there bragging about how the U.S. government egregiously violates the Constitution. :eusa_doh: :eusa_doh:

Nancy Pelosi: proof that you can't fix stupid.

You really should at least check before you run your head. Funding for the Iphone and a long list of things we have today was provided by the government.
Who Created the IPhone, Apple or the Government?

Sounds more like you are familiar with the tactics used by tyrants. It wouldn't surprise me if government decided that they are due a big cut of profits. Pelosi thinks it's government's invention and Steve Jobs just used their idea and put it in a nice case. Funny that the same meatheads think clock boy actually built a clock.

Pelosi is an idiot but she is just parroting what others are likely talking about in Washington. There are those who think that nothing can happen without government. Al Gore invented the internet, you know. :cuckoo:

You get a loan from the bank to buy or build a house after you pay off the loan does the bank still own your house ?

Nope. I own it at that point. Oddly Apple owns the IPhone even though they never paid back all the free research and grants they received. Without all those gifts, they would have never been able to produce their products. Apple didn't build that after all. It was Apple and the taxpayers.

When you see a statement that someone "said" something without a quote, just assume they are lying

Democrats would love to take over oil and gas. In other countries its the government who owns these energy resources and they reap all the profits.

You should really stop buying into libtard propaganda. Apple created the iPhone. Period. Apple. If the government created the iPhone - they would be making sure the world knew about it. And they also wouldn't permit Apple to sell it and make money off it.

We do. Everything you post doesn't have quotes around them. Ironically, everything you post is a lie. Though in your defense - most of it is because you are ignorant of the facts (sadly, by choice).

Yeah....and look at how that has worked on in Venezuela (one of the most oil rich nations in the world). They are now importing oil from the U.S.

Then, when you see quotes, the Left focuses on the source, then, when multiple sources say the same thing, the Left cries that everything is being taken out of context.

Well, Jobs had to drive on roads to get to his office at Apple, so....

:rolleyes-41:

No business, no roads. Capitalism founded this country and Capitalists set up Government to support Capitalism. You people are flat out trying to inverse that as you believe that corporations and individuals should serve Government. This has been tried in other countries and failed.

Back to Pelosi and her notion that the Government built the iPhone, she is wrong. The truth is that much incredible innovation comes out of the Government from a conceptual perspective. Capitalism makes this a reality by refining design, producing, and delivering to market.......one could say, "build" the product.

Most technologies developed in the U.S., since WW II, we're developed under contract to the federal government (chemical & pharmaceutical excepted).

The internet was created in the 1960s by the government. It was called the ARPANET. The government had laptop computers at that time as well.

Private companies develop under government contract, then get the patent when the government declassifies it.

The tax payer pay for the research & development.

That's how the U.S. research and development goes. You know nothing of this because the people that do the it are required under law to keep secrets (It's called 'The Industrial Security Code'. Some violations of which can be punishable "by death or any number of years imprisonment")

No, the government is very strict about NOT letting the world know about the technological advances they've funded.

I do not know the particulars of the iPhone or Apple, but if the minority leader says so, it's probably correct.

Apparently you've never heard of the 'Military industrial complex'.

Welcome to America!

Progressives are trained to believe that the government IS the economy
