A Sign for Obama

Raymond Gaster is the owner of Gaster Lumber and Hardware, a small business in Savannah, Georgia.

This is the sign he put up in front of his store:


And here’s his message to America:
“When the prez of the U.S. stands up and says that ‘you didn’t build that, someone else did,’ he insulted every businessman who ever started a business and tried to run a successful business. It’s time we stood up and say ‘NO, Mr. President, you are wrong. I built this business.’ If you have a marque or a sign board you owe it to your country to answer back. This is my answer to Obama.”

Congratulations for having the courage to set the record straight, Mr.Gaster! Obama wants to convince Americans that the profits from your business like yours belong to the government because it is responsible for your success. He can take his Marxist theories back to where he came from, wherever that is.

I hope to see more signs like this popping up all over the country! People are just fed up……

Me too!…Every business owner that has had enough of Obama’s redistribution of wealth, socialist garbage needs to do the same thing!

However discomforting this fact might be, there is abundant and irrefutable evidence that Barack Hussein Obama and his socialist cadre are endeavoring to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” with a debt bomb, the future shockwave of which, they surmise, will break the back of free enterprise. From the ashes of that cataclysm, Obama and his ilk envision restructuring our national economy as a Democrat Socialism State.

You are showing your true redneck colors and proving this election is irrefutably about race. You would not have been so insulting of any other sitting president. Your sign is an embarassment to the thinking people of Savannah, Ga.

Actually, this election is about a “president” that is rapidly destroying our country as it was founded.
And people like you who see a racial issue forming in your cereal bowls every morning are the reason why the “racism” charge no-longer has any meaning.
If you doubt me, see Chicken Little as well as The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
Obama is destroying this country, and if not run out of office in November, he is going to succeed in doing so.
Too bad you are too friggin’ ignorant to understand that.

Obama seemed to forget who funds the government and builds the roads and bridges. It is the productive taxpayers.

Don’t forget that the comments Mr. Gaster takes from Obama’s speech are out of context. It was unfortunate that Obama gave that soundbite, but if you review his remarks in the full context you get a very different picture than what Mr. Gaster portrays.

What rock have you been hiding under since January 20, 2009?
Obama said exactly what he meant, and his hostility toward the private sector throughout his term is proof of that.

As we used to say (when we were about 10),” I could kiss u all over and never miss”. Of course, what would u expect from the state that brought us Lester Maddox. Just remain in the backwater & things will be just fine. Say hi to the wife (your sister, right) & have a good one.

As a life long resident of the state of Georgia, I only have one thing to say:
Kiss my ass, you government-educated moron.
And you lefty owners of the liberal plantation crack me up when you accuse anyone of being racist.
BTW: Lester Maddox was a DEMOCRAT, as were the founders of the KKK and the authors of the Jim Crow laws.
But as you clearly attended government school run by the descendants of those same democrats, you wouldn’t know that.

Bet Mr Gaster is proud, but I do see quite a few things he used government help with building his business. Good luck building such a fine business without government help building that nice paved road out front. Good luck building that business without government police and fire keeping the place safe. No doubt this man has had a shoplifter arrested and used our government courts. He uses the government founded postal service, counts on the government to provide him fair access to phones, electricity, radio waves, currency, banking and cell phones. He used the government to protect his business… Read more »

What’s missing in such comments is these things weren’t provided exclusively for these entrepreneurs; they were provided for everyone, regardless of whether this shop opened or not. It’s just short of a non sequitor.

Hey Ray! First, Obama didnt say Govt. helped you build it, he said other PEOPLE helped you build your business. Secondly, as the sign on FB shows, govt had a HELLUVA lot to do with helping you build your business from giving you permission to trademark your name, to providing you electricity to policing the area. Other PEOPLE helped you because I know YOU didnt build the building, lay the plumbing, run the electrical conduits, nor are you the sole employee of the company, other people help you run it. STUPUD people like you do not deserve to own anything… Read more »

P.S. I spelled “STUPID” wrong on purpose (trying to dumb it down a bit for you.)

It amazes me how you closet racists will take things out of context and twist the words of the President. You know damn good and well WHAT he said and WHAT he meant. If you business owners are really educated, it is a sad state for this country if all your learning got you this stupid. It isnt a matter of “kool aid” MORONS…it is a matter of simply listening to what the President said. He said, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!! But for you greedy republican, ignorant conservative racists I see how you would hear something else. Fucking… Read more »

@Grouchy Fogie- aside from your name saying it all…It is sad that you had to point out that Obama didnt actually USE the word “help”. His WHOLE message is about ALL OF US WORKING TOGETHER TO BUILD THIS NATION!! You’re the stupid one if you cant see that! But instead of just admitting your wrong (which we know will NEVER happen from the RIGHT…I guess many of you assume your political position equals your debate skills). I will say this ONE MORE TIME!…all of you are ignorant because you assume Obama said government got you were you are. HE NEVER… Read more »

Just curious…that mailbox in the picture; what’s it used for? Those roads in the picture; what organization built them? What are they used for? What might the store’s owner use them for? Those electricity lines…could those possibly be providing electricity under government regulations that ensure fair access to electricity at reasonable prices? That cell phone…I assume it’s not hooked up to any sort of cellular network, because the only reason we’re able to use cell phones is thanks to government regulations on wireless spectrums. The lack of criminals trying to break into the lumber yard…could that possibly be because of… Read more »

Mailbox is used by a government agency that is billions in the hole. Roads were funded by taxpayers and built by contractors. Cars were invented and got around on dirt roads just fine. A basic service that we fund is now paying for outrageous state pensions that are unsustainable. Enterprise funds are not designed to make a profit either. They continue to raise our rates to meet the demand of complying with strict fed regulations.They also have unsustainable pension plans. Point is us taxpayers fund these services. The government is over bloated and wastes our money in astronomical proportions. I… Read more »

Me, You hit the nail on the head. This is exactly what Obama was saying, and was quickly taken out of context. As a small business owner with 30 plus employees paid a fair wage, with medical and 401k, I understand this.
It’s time for us all to pay our fair share, including corporations, and the upper 2%. We will not survive unless invest in our infrastructure, education,
and basic care of our fellow citizens.

DCG
Admin

We will not survive unless the government stops spending and wasting our tax dollars. And I’m talking about the millions for their cronies, unions, and pet projects.
Basic services are fine. Yet the government can’t even turn a profit on a whore house and we are to entrust them to spend OUR money wisely? What a joke…

We will survive w/out govt. My church raised over $600k for a private charity tonight. Every penny will go to charity. No govt bureaucrats involved.

America did build that business to every person that forced the indians to move and stole their land. America built that busniness with her 400 years of free labor that was slavery in which she made those who are wealthy now wealthy. To the other 100 years when the African American was forced to take second hand education and jobs. Yes the government has built every business and it started with the ones that got all of it with free labor and selling people like commodities.

Good grief…it’s history, deal with it. Since you live in Atlanta, how do you reconcile yourself with the fact that you live on stolen land? You must be miserable…Good thing the Indians aren’t as miserable as you. And they still live here. They receive their special compensation, and then some.
Guess who started slavery? Guess which party wanted to keep slavery alive?
Victim mentality….never gets you anywhere. I see the gubermint education system taught you very well.
