OA, I remember that phrase very well myself, I thought it was so good I started using it.

As did I.

Oh, and so did Hillary Clinton, while providing testimony to Congress, said that she "didn't remember, didn't know", or something similar: 250 times.

"I don't recall" WAS a lie. Clinton was lying about sex, Reagan was lying about illegal activities.
Yeah OA, it's really hard to compare lying about a BJ, to lying about the illegal sale of Hawk and TOW missiles to Iran.

I couldn't disagree with you more. I will say again, your business exists due to one person - YOU. Without you, there wouldn't be a business ... period. I don't know the details of your business, but my business would not exist without me starting it. And since both of our businesses exist, there is now more tax revenue going to pay for the services you list.
Taxpayers are the heart and soul of the country, not the government. If taxpayers didn't exist, including businesses, there would be no government. Every service offered by the government is paid for by the taxpayers. A lot of the services you list are provided by private entities. Some are provided by the government, but they are all paid for by people like you and me. Just because we use some of these services doesn't mean we should be penalized for using them because we helped pay for them. Regarding electricity, internet, postage, etc., I pay the full cost for the part of these services I use. A private entity could just as easily provide them. We are not indebted to the government because we use services we have paid for.
To use your philosophy, I had a construction firm build my initial building. The construction firm could easily say that I didn't build my business since they built the building. However, I paid them to build the building and without customers like me, they wouldn't exist.
Your willingness to risk your financial assets, your initiative and your work ethic are the reason your business exists, not because of the government. Yes, you do need employees to operate. However, you are paying for their services and you have paid for their education. You are also funding their unemployment, their healthcare, part of their medicare and social security and workman's comp. But just to be clear, the employees are not the reason your business exists, it is because of you. Your employees need you for a job. The government needs employees to get tax revenue to pay for the children of these same employees' education. In fact, the government needs you more than you need it. Without taxpayers that are made up of businesses and individuals, there would be no government.
I applaud your initiative to start your own business because I know what is involved and the work it takes. You are a huge asset to your community and even though we may disagree on how involved the government is regarding our businesses, I am very appreciative of all your efforts to create jobs and provide support for your local community.
I never said anyone should be penalized for anything. I listed things such as roads and highways, education, TVA electrcity, the postal service, the internet,a stable banking sysyem etc. without which I could not conduct business as I now do...or not at all. I never said you and I didn't help pay for them, but you or I could not create them ourselves, and some would never show a profit if they were done by a private entity, but without them my business as I know, it COULD not exist.
The area where I live would have never gotten electricity if not for the REA, because the long lines and few customers made it a losing proposition for for profit electricity providers.
We see something else differently. I do not "fund" unemployment, healthcare,Medicare and Social Security for those who work for me, they do. They EARN those things by the work they do for me and the profit they help me to make...

News is reporting another school shooting, this time in Texas, at a college. Makes me wonder what is wrong with this country that people have to shoot kids at schools.

And will Mr Transparent shed all the secrets?
Did he mention no more torture?
How about Gitmo?
Does he now see the light and send illegals to the end of the line NOW?He did promise.
I've heard mention of nukes?His speech did say it won't happen on his watch?Right?
"I will not take your GUNS"
He did say he would undo the NDAA?
According to study drone strikes in Pakistan kill 1 terrorist for every 50 deaths,did he shed a tear?
Whistle blowers are so patriotic he has said will he now stop destroying these great folks with lots of r

Why are you picking on Reagan, He wasn't lying about not being able to "recall" he had old timers disease even during his first term. He was a perfect example of genius Republican, because he actually had half a brain.

These are not kids, they are young adults. Most of the are 18 or older. and it seems to be a rivalry (possibly gang related)shooting.
Unlike the elementary schools where a 6 yr when told to run will run up to the shooter and look at them like a deer in headlites. If everybody focused on that picture in their mind, we would have a police officer in every public school.
