“At the risk of sounding like Elizabeth Warren, if you built a successful business, then congratulations. Your success wasn’t achieved in a vacuum, though.

I’d submit that Gaster Lumber and Hardware would wither and die posthaste. And Ray Gaster would be revealed as the hateful, ill-informed ideologue he is.
“Ignoring the way things are doesn’t validate your argument; it just proves that you’re a fool.”
