Is it hard to start a small business in Europe because of all the regulations and taxes? I assume it's unbelievably easy to start one in china because of the lack of enviro regulations.
I guess you can be grateful that you can start a business here n an environment that isn't fallujah or Kandahar because of the public infrastructure and security etc. is a good thing.
A key test is just how long does it take to wade through all the government (and bank) hoops and hurdles before you can start trading? Is it days, weeks or months (or in the case of India - years)?
I'll post this here too:
Does anyone really catch the way this guy talks? He's saying 100% of what you make belongs to the Government. If he lets you keep it...that's spending. WTF? And then he has the nerve to say "for ME" What?! Is he the Government then? I guess we already have a monarchy. Sounds a little like:OBAMA: We're sure not going to spend that money better on tax cuts for me.http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...45#post6274345If you’ve got a business. you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.

The Wash. times article doesn't really explain to me his comments about entrpreneurs. It just seems he is trying to spin it into a different subject.
Hoover dam? GG bridge ? ..... doesn't explain why he thinks "If youíve got a business. you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen."
....not at all
That was the STUPIDEST THING OBAMA HAS SAID! (yet) Is he trying not to get relected?
I don't want any of the presidential candidates to be president.
Some explantation of this line I found
Obama said that businesses needed infrastructure investment to succeed. "If you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen," he said. Mitt Romney took the line out of context, and used it to attack the president for being anti-business.
It's not just taken "out of context", it's simply a highly questionable comment.
Even if you accept the idea that when Barry said "you didn't build that", he was talking about roads, bridges and other infrastructure, the general thrust of his comments remain. His statement was to the effect that business owners could not do anything without government providing necessary services. The problem with that is that the opposite is true. American was built by businessmen before the government was even in the infrastructure-building business in a big way. And even where the government today builds lots of infrastructure, private construction firms are usually contracted to do the work, and the tax money from businesses and business owners largely pays for it all. But Barry always puts government first as the solution, the provider, the savior for us all. That is his mindset. He is a statist to the core.
Taken out of context geez what a joke. This is just like his "The private sector is doing fine." Gaff.
