You did not become successful alone – Obama Helped!

For the first time Obama is correct – we did not become successful in our business alone – we had help

We were helped by:
Our family, friends and relatives that put up with our 24x7x365 work ethic to pay our mortgage

Our children, that at times did not know they had a father and mother because we were always at work

Our competition, that surrounds us, encircles us like sharks waiting for us to fail

Our doctors, who helped us with our ulcers, high blood pressure and sleeplessness all because of our business

Our employees, those mediocre children we hire, pay for and get sued by

Lets not forget our city and state governments, those bastions of spending our money, who sit all day long thinking up new ways to tax us or penalizing us for hidden rules they never told us about or increasing our payroll taxes, our income taxes, our sales tax, our front sign tax, our business license tax, our air conditioner tax, our boiler tax, our sidewalk cleaning tax, our parking meter tax…………………………………………………….. or the unemployment tax because a record number of people are on unemployment and the city has to pay interest on the loans to pay for it – yet the federal government continue to increase how long people are on unemployment

And lets not forget the MTA – you know them – they are your business partners demanding a “vig” from your business every 3 months because they cant control their spending.  Yes, the MTA – the ones that raised prices 50% previously and will continue to raise them

So yes Obama you are correct – we did not do it alone – we had a lot of help
