paulejb:

Steve Jobs founded Apple.  He never owned a single piece of road

building equipment and probably couldn't afford to pay for it anyway.

Thomas Edison invented the light bulb.  Even though he was a prolific

inventor, he never had the money or labor to build roads, either.

But never fear, paulejb!

There's these wonderful things called trucks.  Ever hear of 'em? They pick stuff up until there's no more room in 'em and then they take that stuff to places where it's sold!  It's all magic (rocket sergery for teh tupid like paulejb)!

They're part of another industry:

The shipping industry! 

Guess what Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs used?  I'll give you at least five guesses and a half an hour head start!

Ok.  Five guesses and a half an hour is apparently not enough.

Oh, well.

Offl.

 paulejb keeps looking at those contrails high in the sky and thinks:

"I wish I could think like that!"

53_3,

Thomas Edisons' light bulbs would never have shipped. Steve Jobs would not have been able to ship his stuff either. This isn't rocket sergery, paulejb.

Only a mind numbed lib robot would believe that men like Edison or Jobs would have been stopped by the lack of a road. They would have just paved their own roads.

Barack Obama and the rest of you libs are too small minded to grasp the concept of success. You all believe it gets handed to you on a platter by an almighty government.

P.S. What is "rocket sergery," genius?

I'm certain its drugs or Citizens United money, Mr. O.

I mean, this is the first time I've ever seen someone agree with me so vehemently!

I'm sure you can find tons of historical facts about how companies just built roads everywhere and didn't ask the government to invest in areas to make it possible for them to invest or grow.

But not you; faith in what you say is more important then facts.

Problem with you of course is that you mistake having ideas with being able to put your ideas into practical use; practicality is what you need infrastructure for - ideas - all you need is a bright moment.

I do think that paulejb has been drinking more than one coup of whatever it is he's drinking.

According to Barack Obama, Steve Jobs owed his great success to the person who built his garage.

Have we ever had a president so out of touch with reality before?

Actually, someone somewhere built those computers and not in his garage and shipped them  probably from Hungary or Poland and landed on "socialized" runways at "socialized" airports and put them into truck on "socialized" roads to get to the stores which are usually located near "socialized" roads in a city with "socialized" services.
