        what President Obama said about they didn't do it on their own.  Yes business owners work hard and long, some risk all they have on their idea.  But they all are able to move forward to success because we tax payers support infrastructure, research, tax breaks, grants and lots more support systems for business.  None would succeed if they truly had to do it all their own.  The fabulously wealthy like Mitt have more breaks than we will ever have.

          the interstate highway system.
          We'd still be driving our flivvers over gravel country roads.
          At best our cars would look and feel like the WWII iteration of the Jeep.

          No massive car dealerships.
          No American Grafitti.
          No MacDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell., etc.
          No suburbia. Etc. etc. etc.
          No Walmart, Home Depot, etc.
          The interstate revolutionized our economy and our society.

          You can't make this stuff up.

        How about, "I felt like I had built my own coffin?"
