So, I wrote my friend back with my response to Ole Ray....
I seem to see a ROAD out front in that there piture- that must be what the customers come on to get to Ray's place...did Ole Ray build that by hizmself? ( Oh I know he pays taxes, 'cause his kind don't never stop bitchin about their damn taxes...but do you think he paid for it ALL by himself...heck, does he even think GEORGIA paid for it by itself...no sir, I betcha some of that there road money came down from wealthier states like New York and Massachusetts...simple fact is, them liberal Yankees pay even MORE taxes than Ray...you can look it up.)
Ray also seems to be in the lumber biddness...I'm thinking that timber must have bin brung ta to him on Gov't build roads, or by Gov't subsidized rail...hum, maybe BOTH...or do you reckon Ole Ray went out to Seattle to get that wood hizself?
I'm assumin' that ole Ray has some help at that there lumber yard. I betcha most of them boys he got workin' for him can prolly read and write at least enough to deal with a loadin' slip, or packin invoice, and they can maybe run a cash register, too. You recken Ole Ray waited 18 years to open his store while he taught them kids who work for him reading, writin' and 'rithmatic?
Oh, and I was just thinkin'....lumber's expensive, seems to me people might just take it if it weren't for all them gov't paid cops in them gov't cars on gov't roads...and it's dangerous working with them saws and all...but I betcha Ray does all his own doctorning and fire departmentering, too, huh?
Now Ray MIGHT keep all his money that he made, after doing everything hizself without any help from his tax payin fellow citizens, in an old Bucket out behind the shed. But just Maybe Ray keeps his money in a bank and earns interest on it...he may also have had ta borrow some to finance that there store...now, who keeps the banks from collapsing every time there's money trouble...which seems like always...maybe it's Ray, er, maybe it's the FDIC. (That'd be FEDERAL Insurance Deposit Corporation).
Did Ray loan all them people the money to build or add on to their homes or new construction? How 'bout them small business loans, did Ray make em? Unless Ray owns a hell of a lot more than one lumberyard in Georgia, I'm thinking that might be a bit outta Ray's reach. But I betcha Ray's real happy to take their money when they come into the store fer lumber an sich....
And don't tell Ray about all the kids that went on to college to learn how to keep the electricity on, build a faster saw or better, cheaper paint to sell, trucks to drive in, or computers to keep track of his inventory...a lot of them kids at least got a Gov't loan to that, if not an out right gov't grant.
We don't even need to talk about the billions and billions of dollars the Government spends every day to keep the the bad guys on their side of the ocean...
Hell's bells, Ray don't even have to deal with food riots, 'cause, although we only spend about 8 percent of our money on what Ray would call "Welfare", it's enough to keep most of them folks feed and quiet (hell some of them kids even grow up to go to school on the Gov't's dime and make stuff fer Ray's biddness).
My thoughts on Ray are this: he's entitled to his opinion, and I'm entitled to mine...and my opinion is that Ray's opinion of himself and his abilities as an EntrepRayneer are just a lettle bit inflated...I don't know Ray, but judging by how his sign seems to indicate he thinks he's holdin' the sky up all by hizself, I'm thinking he prolly thinks his turds smell like Roses, too.
Ray...you think you did it all by yourself...and I think you're full of shit. Me and three hundred million other Americans helped make the world safe and ready for your buisness...you could at least say: Thanks instead of bitchin all the time.
WAKE UP...AMERICA IS A TEAM SPORT!
WAKE UP...AMERICA IS A TEAM SPORT!
and I approve THIS message.
PS- Ray, if you can prove you did all this by yurself, I will gladly drive to Georgia and kiss your ass.
Here's another great take on this story- with an annotated photo:
