If it wasn’t for Sad Obama yelling “Run faster!” the Wright Brothers would never have gotten off the ground.
July 16th, 2012
I’d like to see obama try to tell that to say, Henry Ford, or maybe Thomas Edison…
This misses the point.
Somebody gave the Wrights bicycles and put them into business, this allowed them to have free time to build airplanes and different things.
and the stupid Wright Brothers did know enough to wait for the federal government to build an airport on the beach in Kitty Hawk…

Good things Moose’s fat ass wasn’t on the plane. Wright’s would have thrown in the towel. “If we can’t get one fat ass off the ground, how’re we ever gonna get 300?”
The EPA would never issue a building permit for an airport.
and they did this before there was such a thing as “federal income tax”…
and road tax and internet and endowment for the arts and…
Beautiful illustration; right to the point – no wasted words.
and no 3 year EIS impact study to see if the noise would scare sea turtles or the plane could kill piping plovers…
Our Outer Banks are being bankrupted by the feds and envirowhackos…
He’s talking about the businesses in states 51 through 57.
@Rando Not to worry. Already done if I could post ‘em. Having internets problems.
That is the most contemptible man in American history.
Lies, it’s all he has.
Apparently it’s all he’s ever had.
eternal cracker p
.. This scene eventually lead to NASA, and was recently largely cut.. because….? mmmHHHMmmmm….
Wait….Obama DIDN’T create the universe?
Here is the Picture that hangs over my computer desk
this was back in the time that government didn’t stifle and regulate everything, and a couple of guys could do stuff like this “just ’cause” they wanted to.
Stirrin the B.S.
@Menderman – it took a double take, but I caught the shadow that the Wright Bros plane cast – a nice subtle statement of American ingenuity.
BTW, the wooden Indian’s argument FAILS in this case. There was no income tax or Progs in government to redistribute stuff when the Wright brothers built the first working airplane. The same goes for Ford and Edison. In many ways the country was a better place without them.
Without the progressives that is.

Not only did Orville and Wilbur Wright build the airplane, they also designed and built the engine that powered it. Along with the propellers as well. They discoverd that the propellers are just little wings and they just couldn’t be flat pieces of wood. They realized that the screw propellers used on ships moved water and they figured out how to get them to move the air.
However, their biggest accomplishment was not in flight per se, but in the ability to maneuver while flying. The pilot would lay prone in a cradle. Shifting his hips right or left would warp the wings making them act like current day ailerons. They put the elevator out front to make the plane climb or dive. Originally, the rudder on the back of the plane was fixed, but when they couldn’t pull out of roll maneuvers in 1902, they wired the rudder to move with the hip cradle. In 1902, a year before their powered flight, they were gliding in excess of 600 feet at a time in complete control of their craft. What the Wrights discovered were the three flight axes; roll, pitch, and yaw.
And something else. Their father was a bishop and they made a vow that they would always keep the Sabbath and never work on Sunday. At Kill Devil Hills on Sunday December 13, 1903 the weather was perfect for flying (as it had not been for at least a month) but the brothers held to their vow and waited until Monday to begin again. Three days later, two bicycle repairmen from Dayton, Ohio led the world into the Age of Flight.
Hey, Obama. It’s obvious they didn’t teach American History at Harvard. So why don’t you STFU, resign, and just go away.
if if if ya got an education…. ya didn’t git one on your own ..SOMEONE pushed your CHOOMING, lying, mac-daddy, sorry ass and REALLY got ya out to the richy-rich hawaiian high school …somebody helped you stoke the propaganda with that street corner commie agitatin azz thing….
and SOMEDAMNBODY helped you to mysteriously matriculate from high school to columbia to harvard where somebody DAMN wrote review for your sorry, lying, chooming, rat-bastard azz
and ultimately got you on the road to success voting “present” and voting yes to screwing America azz
can’t friggin take thia pos commie rat-bastard any more
The brothers were Wright! Barry is Wrong!

“Somebody gave the Wrights bicycles …”
No, they EARNED the money SELLING and FIXING bicycles. They then invested EXTRA, personal time and effort – off the job – to experiment and learn RELEVANT facts they needed in order to improve the designs.
This economic loser who thinks that others must GIVE you things in order to create an opportunity, or worse that government must TAKE from successful people in order to GIVE to ineffective incompetents – is probably moping about wondering why the world won’t just GIVE him what he wishes…
It’s NOT FAIR. Waaahhhhh.
But but, were there wheels on that plane? I don’t think they invented that! And did they use any fire at all in this process? They must give proper credit where it’s due. See, they didn’t do it themselves.

obama and the wright brothers get real here thats like comparing aples to oranges i fai to see a point here waaaa waaaaa waaavote ron paul if u want your country back

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama. I wish the Paulistas would take a dose of reality with their Koolaid. Remember Ross Perot? Geez, vote Romney and support down ballot candidates that will hold his feet to the conservative fire. We simply cannot afford four more years of a guy who thinks our tax system should be used to spread the wealth around by taxing achievers to give to welfare recipients who now no longer even have to attempt to find work. A man who rewrites laws with the stroke of his executive pen… I am really tired of the Ron Paul Koolaid crowd, grow up.
