    This quote came to me in an email (having nothing to do with politics), but seemed appropriate here:
    "WHEN PEOPLE HAVE NO DREAMS AND NO HOPES OR ASPIRATIONS,LIFE BECOMES A DULL AND MEANINGLESS WILDERNESS."
    If no one can claim any individual responsibility for success, and if they achieve it, the fruits of their labors are distributed to others, aspiration is stifled. Not just talking about the revenue, but also the personal satisfaction for turning an idea into a reality.

    Interesting story about entrepreneurship ... about the difference between the govt running something; and private sector motivation.

    Maybe the govt itself should do more outsourcing?

    Earlier we were discussing exactly what POTUS meant by his comments. For clarification, POTUS put out a campaign video explaining that. He explains:
    In an attempt to combat the negative attention, the president’s team released a television ad Tuesday night, in which Obama directly addresses the attacks from Romney and accuses his political rival of taking his "words about small business out of context."

    “Of course Americans build their own businesses. Every day, hardworking people sacrifice to meet a payroll, create jobs and make our economy run. And what I said was that we need to stand behind them, as America always has," says Obama in the ad.
    To me that sounds very little like what he said originally. No wonder we've been confused as to what he really meant by his original remarks.

    But the third line really made me smile: "I am Bob Gastner, & I approved this message." (not sure I got the fellow's name correct).

    Have noticed that the bulk of campaign ads carry that "approval" message. If any of the "facts" in them ever are proven false, it won't be easy for the "approver" to wheedle out of them. (Goes for both sides, BTW).

    Would you have made that same prediction in 1920 when the Fed budget was cut by MORE THAN 1/2 IN LESS THAN 2 YEARS???? Yes, you probably would have.

    I knew this sounded familiar!

    From Atlas Shrugged:
    “He didn’t invent iron ore and blast furnaces, did he?”

    “Who?”

    “Rearden. He didn’t invent smelting and chemistry and air compression. He couldn’t have invented his Metal but for thousands and thousands of other people. His Metal! Why does he think it’s his? Why does he think it’s his invention? Everybody uses the work of everybody else. Nobody ever invents anything.”

    She said, puzzled, “But the iron ore and all those other things were there all the time. Why didn’t anybody else make that Metal, but Mr. Rearden did?”
