Break Me Off a Slice of That Good ‘Ol American Entrepreneurship!

Image

One of the best things about being a curious person are the infinite number of little adventures and surprising scenarios you find yourself in. While house-hunting this weekend in Wellesley, we stumbled upon two darling little girls standing in their front yard holding up a sign that read “ART FOR SALE $.75 cents!” The 8 year-olds waved eagerly in attempt to grab our attention, and they were successful. How can you not stop for such adorable entrepreneurship?!

Finlay and Taryn proudly spread out their inventory for me after we introduced ourselves. And while I asked a few questions about their drawings, made my selections, and paid for them –  I walked away full of such enjoyment of what just took place. The seeds of industry had been planted in the hearts and minds of these future leading women. A belief that they can create and be rewarded for it. What a remarkable real-life example of what makes this country so exceptional.

This in stark contract to the widely talked about shameful display from President Obama regarding the nature of business creation and success in the United States that I previously wrote about last week (‘Hey successful folks – stop taking credit for your, um, success). When you listen to him speak off teleprompter and whoop-it up for his audience, notice that the ONLY jobs he mentions are government related. It took me a third go round of analysis to pick up on that one. This wasn’t a gaff or a misspeak, it was him accidentally letting loose his actual belief system. Obama believes the role of government in your life is a far departure from how our great society was founded, with you dependent on it – and it spreading the wealth around just enough so you don’t starve. No poverty, no success. No recognition for your hard work. No responsibility for your laziness and multiple baby-mamas.

Mustache and freedom loving commentator John Stossel further illustrates the combative anti-business attitude that is unfortunately not only present but growing in our culture in his comical-yet-tragic lemonade stand debacle. No wonder that small business creation is in decline. As goes our business men and women, so goes our great nation.

In the history of the world there has never been a single example of long-term success and sustainability of a quasi-socialist (communist, social justice, whatever…you say potato) quasi-capitalist nation. Never. And the rub is, they know it. Obama knows it. Pelosi knows it. Reid knows it. All you staking claim to others life and property in the name of “social justice” know it. Come out and say what you actually want and believe, as we got a glimpse of last week in Roanoke, VA. Tell us you HATE this country and the way it rewards industry. Tell us you HATE that some people are rich while you are not. Tell us you HATE because you cannot create.

***

My sincere apologies to Taryn and Finlay, my young little entrepreneurs. You didn’t draw those on your own and you shouldn’t think you are “so smart” and “hard-working” because someone besides your mom thought they were of value and paid you for them. Beware if you should become too successful little ones in what I hope is a very bright future. Obama’s social justice society will come a calling to take it away from you.

  1. Lovely post Kristina…..leaves much to ponder. The artwork is delightful! There is nothing more reassuring than the simple, straightforward approach of children to life and its challenges. So much resourcefulness and enthusiasm – to be encouraged and never stifled. Children are so well grounded and in touch with what makes the world go round and their agendas (unlike our breed of politicians today) are always transparent. More and more I am inclined to ponder how much more children have to teach us, than we them 🙂

  2. Great post and keep screaming out… what hits the nail on the head is it’s pure what these children are doing and hasnot been tainted by the Godless minds like President BeHO. If the Government would just let us produce more GDP comes in with no problem. Think about it if the Government gave you an extra $400.00 tax cut on your payroll tax……. What would you do with It? Correct spend to support your family. Now the Great First Black President want to Tax you more. So everybody start thinking about loosing $400.00 of what you make now. SAD.

    This President and government are creating the greates theft in theHistory of a country. The evidense is plain this country is going to die with people running now. I’m sorry to say but if your poor and blame others and vote for these blood suckers you deserve what you have. “they (Liberal Lot) want you that way dummy.

    This note is for Republicans also that walk a thin line of deception.

  3. What a warm story about these young ladies selling their ART! By any chance did they get a government grant? Who ever built Obama shame on them he obviously has never built a thing. He is systematically ripping this country apart. I pray these girls won’t be tainted down the road.

    I trust the young ladies pulled a permit to sell because of your blog they are uncovered.

    The sun is setting on our Freedoms and right to live as we wish… Many have died for us all and this President has no idea of his damage. Toss them all OUT… I know fat chance, maybe not.
    Keep up the good work Blogger. Your computer may be turned off someday if you speak out to much.

  4. Nice, well said.

    You have indeed struck right at the heart of the matter, the indusrty of these young ladies is a very sweet story of budding CAPITALISM. A wonderful lesson so many Americans could gain from…about half I’d say.

  5. But, they couldn’t have done it if the government didn’t build those roads so people could get there to buy them.
