Fox News reports:
President Obama's message to entrepreneurs that "you didn't build that" prompted one Georgia business owner to respond with a not-so-subtle retort.
"I built this business without gov't help. Obama can Kiss my ass," reads the sign outside Gaster Lumber & Hardware in Savannah, Ga. Owner Ray Gaster posted that and two similar ones at all three of his company's locations in response to Obama's comments during a speech to supporters in Virignia, which struck a nerve with small business owners around the nation....
Yeah, nobody helped Ray Gaster build his business, and certainly no one from the damn government ... except maybe the folks at Armstrong Atlantic State University, a public institution of higher learning that's part of the University System of Georgia, from which Gaster graduated in 1972 with a degree in management and marketing, and which has since given him its Distinguished Alumni Award.
Wikipedia tells us:
Armstrong Atlantic State University was founded as Armstrong Junior College in 1935 by Mayor Thomas Gamble.... Gamble pursued the issue during the height of the Great Depression to benefit Savannah's youth and the community, as well aid in stimulating the local economy....The school continues to rely on public and private support (the latter including help from Mr. Gaster himself).
In 1959, Armstrong College of Savannah became part of the University System of Georgia as a community college, and in 1964 the Board of Regents conferred four-year status on Armstrong State College.
Gaster's education? He didn't build that.
