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.”
