A juxtaposition just too good to pass up. Think of it as a Rorschach Test in prose.
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.

Hopefully we can continue to increase what we do in this community. It's always up to government and it's their choice.
