Home Depot Founder Apologizes for Creating Over 300,000 Jobs

This one somehow slipped through the cracks earlier in the week. Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot, is tired of clueless dilettantes who couldn’t operate a lemonade stand without ending up a hundred grand in debt portraying the business community as “the problem.” Marcus was on CNBC and profusely apologized — tongue-in-cheek of course — for helping to create over 300,000 jobs:

300,000 jobs? Sure, but how many “lives touched” is that?

And this criticism from Marcus comes after President Obama used Home Depot as the backdrop for the announcement of yet another “green jobs” scheme? Tsk tsk.

Of course people like Bernie Marcus are despised. The “tenured academics” in government tend to view private sector job creation as the mere byproduct of the greed of the person or people who started any company in question. In other words, entrepreneurs don’t start companies to help people — only to get rich and then ultimately not share any of the wealth with their employees. They’re a grave threat to the de-development of America. Only those who spend somebody else’s money free from the consequence of success or failure have the purest, most humanitarian motives.

This is why the government is increasingly stepping in to ensure that nobody — save for tenured bureaucrats and academics in government — has any money or power. That way everything’s nice and fair — because they care about people, dammit!

A couple more clips from Marcus’ CNBC interview are here.

Choose your words carefully, Mr. Marcus, or Joe Biden will stop shopping at your stores — not that he ever did.
