Billboard: Obama Can Kiss My Ass

| |

Top Tier Gear USA

Barack Obama’s “You Didn’t Build That” speech has infuriated entrepreneurs across the country. Georgia lumberyard owner Ray Gaster decided to do something about it by publicly refuting the outrageous speech.

At all three of his business locations in Savannah, Georgia, Gaster has posted signs:

“I built this business without gov’t help. Obama can kiss my ass.”

The Vietnam veteran began Gaster Lumber and Hardware 28 years ago.   “I started on my own,” Gaster said. “The government wasn’t there. We work long, hard hours and what he said is an insult to any businessman.”

Some people have criticized Gaster’s language, but he defends his choice of words as a necessary tool to get the attention of the President and the public.

“When I heard what he said, I said ‘I’m going to give him an answer in Chicago language–something he’s used to,'” responded Gaster. “If I would have said ‘Dear Mr. President…’ there wouldn’t have been as strong of a response.”

He continued with the recommendation that other businesses stand up for themselves too. “We need to stand up to the criticism coming from our own government.  If this economy is to get better, it will be driven by small and independent businesses.  We are part of the solution, not the problem.”

    Great message on the billboard! It should end with; ‘The half-breed Kenyan scum also wasn’t even eligible to be the president.’

  • EB

    NICE, very nice, I love it! I salute you sir, for both your service to the country in Vietnam and this well said statement of yours. You continue to do this country a great service, thank you!

    Hey dickweed. Send all your employees home. Let’s see how you kick ass, you rugged individualist.

    • MR

      Lets see you start a business. welfare baby daddy.

      I’m on no. three, numbnutt. Only difference is I’m not ignorant enough to even pretend I do it all by myself. It’s my idea and my money, but it takes a team of skill to be successful. That, and I appreciate the work done by real Americans back when we still had what could be called a country, without which people like me would not have opportunities.

      Now get that timecard punched before you’re replaced by someone half your age at half your wage. That seems to be what you are fighting for. Idiots.

  • kos

    though i dont support obama (or ayone else) he is right…this guy didnt build that business himself….. i would like to know where it would be without the customers….we forget about them? oh thats right he can buy his own product and live off that money and buy more…wait…..

    • Prepaired Painter

      A shoe company once sent a sales rep to a small province in Africa… He called and said “Nobody here wears shoes, fly me back”… They sent a different rep the next year to try again, he called and said “nobody here has shoes! Send all you have!”… Get the picture? The person with the “go out there and get it” mentality is the one who built the business, every business has a time when they dont have any customers… its when they first open. I own a small business and I am with this owner… Obama can kiss my ass. I sweat to make my living, not Obama or my customers!

      • kos

        obama can kiss my ass too…as well as the other dip…but he never said you didnt work hard or that you didnt start it….stop using your hate to twist things….stop finding the best decorated bandwagon to jump on and think with your own head…

        you wouldnt have a business without other people….hence it wasnt built by yourself….period

        • kos

          oh yeah…no matter how how hard someone worked to get those customers….you still NEEDED those people……………….

          • Tym

            Isn’t it funny how only people who have never run a business, or simply can’t think, are so quick to jump on this bandwagon? As a country we’re doomed by our own igorance.

    Thank you, Mr. Gaster, for having the courage to say what millions of us want to say. And thank you for your service to our country and fighting for freedom. My father was a Vietnam and Korea vet and I deeply appreciate all that you have done for me and my children and my country. Don’t change. Stay bold and courageous. It is refreshing to see.

  • Laura

    I love it!
