“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing – when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors – when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice – you may know that your society is doomed.” ~Ayn Rand *************************************************** In the battle between good intentions vs. unintended consequences….UC always win. ~Sharon

    Alas, this shows that President Obama was correct in at least one instance during his “you don’t deserve the successes you achieved; others deserve the credit” screed. I wonder whether he was, unexpectedly, thinking of himself when he delivered it.

    Our son and his wife are working 7 days a week right now in their business of sports/business promo because, after 6 years in business, they’ve established a rep among sports organizations that has them receiving invitations to print T-shirts on site for regional and state tournaments of various kinds.

    Last year when we first arrived in OR, one of our first participations was running food for them to their office/warehouse location (where they and their two kids are the only employees)…I was cooking and transporting lunches/meals so that they wouldn’t lose any time going to get anything. They were working almost 20 hours a day for five days because of thousands of football and volleyball uniform printings that all came due at the same time, and because they are still honoring short turn/quick turnaround orders for those who screw up and “order too late” to be able to get their orders filled with larger firms. (Delivering on the quick turnaround is a great way obtain customers….at some point they’ll restructure that, but they are still doing it and staying very busy because of it)

    They are where they are and succeeding the way they are succeeding because they are busting their butts 24/7, taking all the risks themselves (like a second on the house to get off the ground at the beginning). Just recently they added embroidery to their services. Bought a $5,000 second hand piece of equipment to make that happen. Used personal funds to buy that.

    No. Mr. Obama. They are not “standing on anyone else’s shoulders.” They are grateful for their customer base and appreciate their good standing in the business community. They earned every bit of it themselves. Berry, you are a manipulator and a deceiver.

      I don’t even want to talk about how much debt we went into to start our business. And I sure would like the government’s help to collect the money that we are owed by people who are so used to feeling they are entitled to free supplies because they are just as hard working as the next guy. Right. Seriously, we go through the process of collections, use the court system which rules in our favor but when it comes to actually collecting the money we get no help…and no “hope” to get what we worked for. On top of that we have the IRS hounding us every month about money that we don’t owe them but they think we do. Is it any wonder my husband wants to give it up and become a professional poker player? His odds couldn’t be any worse.

      Grrrr…I feel for your son and daughter-in-law Sharon…we are in the sports equipment business by the way…similar to yours?

        They don’t deal in sports equipment exactly, but sports uniforms, memorabilia, banners, etc. and all the same kind of product for business large and small, anything you’ve ever seen a business name printed on. They keep really short accounts and have a collection process in place, too. They’re both really easy people to deal with until somebody lies to them or tries to yank them around. Things go south real fast at that point, and I’m so glad.

        On large orders from private customers, they always require 50% up front…but can’t do that with “gubmint.” Several months ago, they had a $5,000 order for the City of Portland which was on a 30 day contract. Guess what? Those yahoos couldn’t be bothered until it was past 45 days and a couple of phone calls…so for all that time, since they had paid their vendors and still were not paid…they were out the $5,000 in terms of continuing to purchase product, etc. I wonder if zippy will ever have the nerve to have a closed door meeting with small business owners? He wouldn’t get off as easy as he did with the closed door extortion he had with the bankers a couple of years ago.

        I so admire our kids’ ability to be genial and approachable with everybody they deal with, and then having to sort out who the jerks are as they go along and not lose their cool in a way that would compromise their own credibility with others. You and your DH are doing the same thing. Get every dollar you can out of it, and hang to every dollar you can. You earned it. It’s your sweat and muscle and time. It’s your money.

          Too bad John McCain didn’t have the courage to use that photo in the campaign, along with another of himself recreating the scenes where his wrists are tied behind his back and he’s being suspended off the ground in the N.Vietnamese prison camp, the resulting damage making it impossible for him to ever raise his arms normally again.

    Very, very stupid statement by Obama. “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that… Somebody else made that happen.” I mean, of course almost anyone who starts a business has HELP from other people, before, during, and after start-up. And of course their employees deserve a ton of credit if that business becomes successful. But what Obama said, and the way he said it is just STUPID. He deserves every bit of grief he gets for that.

    As for the Peace Prize…. that was probably the biggest mistake the Nobel Committee ever made. And how ’bout during his acceptance speech? You like the way Obama made not-so-subtle digs at people like Gandhi and MLK? I thought Bush was really arrogant (hey, I told you guys a little about myself! 😉 )…. but Obama is FAR worse.
