You didn't make the gains are not yours. They are ours.

From the Romney campaign:

President Obama recently said, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

Comments like that are a slap in the face to the American Dream and reveal the President's naïve view that government, and not the hard work, talent, and initiative of people, is the center of society and the economy. Clearly, this President doesn't understand how our economy works.

Oh how I miss the days of arguing theory in your classes. Seeing this post, and how you blatently took it out of context from POTUS's speech, makes me folkloric for 1987 and also glad to see that you still have the ladle that stirs the pot. Godspeed Doc Parker. A Blankenship.
