Success in Spite of 'Some Helpl'
I am now retired, but I speak from my past. I owned and operated a bar and restaurant, 24/7, for 16 years in Northern California.
I became very successful with “no help” from anyone other than my bank. I stood tall and strong countering my combatants, my former husband, the trade union, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) assigned by liberal Jimmy Carter, and the Mafia. They were all against me and I survived.
I overcame them all with “no” help other than my pricey attorney, at the same time sending two children to college and raising another. I refused to be defeated. The stories I could tell!
Tell me, Mr. Obama, who claims, “You didn’t get there on your own … if you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.”
Yes, my bank did, to whom I paid in full. A second mortgage on my home, which I repaid in full. We who are successful give our all to be so, with no help from Uncle Sam, just our own determination to not fail.
So, Mr. Obama, I, among many Americans with the spirit of Americanism, a replica of many of us, am not willing to submit to your style of socialistic government that you are
proposing to us.
Beyond my own enterprise, 1969–1985, there are many Americans who will continue to become successful in spite of you.
