I agree with Moochchelle.
They both got where they are today because of labor unions, George Soros, the MSM, Hollywood, low educated voters, Acorn, the Shadow Party and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama's could NEVER have done it on their own merit.

I got where I am on my own, of course I don't count in Obamaland. They don't believe it, but there are still individuals out there who count only on themselves, we are the outcasts of society the unknowns who just live don't ask for anything but to be left the hell alone. And I just love the goofy pictures they post of her and her clown husband. Anybody ever notice the way he crosses his legs very strange, or the way he runs down the steps of AF1 I would love to seem him stumble just once..

And every single one of you idiots just used the taxpayer-funded internet to tell the world how utterly independent you are.

Carry on with your malicious retard echo chamber.

Taxpayer funded I beg to differ, no one pays my bill but me an individual. Oh and I can choose to not have it I just choose to have it, dare I say it an individual making his own decisions. No community or committee just me....

I think one eye was talking about his own internet access being taxpayer funded, being that he doesnt work and all, so it's the taxpayers that in the end, are paying for his internet access.

Morons, without huge government (as in taxpayer) investment, it would not exist.

You people really are too stupid to breed.

It's all he/she has, Shoeless. We know ole one-eye won't win any argument because that is all he/she ever does is insult and name call. It's the calling card of the extremists in both parties.

Translation, the real meaning

"No One Gets Where They Are on Their Own’ it should be off the backs of others.

Good Day,

In part, but not thoroughly. The precursors to the internet (research) began as early as the 50s! Things really got going in the late 60s and 70s. Some of the research was sponsored by DARPA, but so too was a lot of it by private companies such as IBM...

I agree.
Seems name calling and insults must make some folks seem sort of superior over others.
I think it's called the little boy syndrome.
That person has lost all credibilty long ago, with all of the name calling.

Good Day,

And as I think about it more... A buddy of mine from high school did "do it on his own". As a high school student he started mowing lawns in his neighborhood. He started simply by buying a simple push mower funded by doing chores around the block. He started it, he built it. As he saved his funds he was able to upgrade to a riding mower making him more efficient. By the time he was a senior in high school, he owned two fully loaded trucks and trailers hiring fellow students. Now... he is a millionaire. He built it.

Agreed.
Michelle Obama didnt get to take that multi-million dollar taxpayer payed for vacation in Spain, with dozens of her freinds last year on her own, did she?
We paid for that!
So,... in a way,...she is correct, isn't she?

“And we were taught to treat everyone with value, and everyone with respect,” she said.“We learned about citizenship and service, that we’re all part of something bigger than ourselves; that with our freedoms come obligations, and with our blessings come a duty to give back to others who have less."

To hear it sounds wonderful, until you realize what she's talking about is empowering the government to take one person's personal property and give it to another based not on merit, but on social status.

To hear any of Obama's '08 campaign speeches sounded wonderful I'm sure to the throngs of people dazzled by his speaking talents, until nearly four years later, after he's spent our money faster than any president in history, we're still fighting wars in the Middle East, we're still staggered with unemployment and a poor economy, and he's promising 4 more years of the same.

So between the two of these radicals the message seems to be, "we want the power to take a citizen's personal property and spend it as we see fit."

And the left is still convinced these people are what's best for America.

If that Marxist SOB gets reelected I'll be watching 30+ states telling him to go to Hell with his treasonous ideas. States vs the Fed. You know it's coming and it ain't going to be a pretty picture.
