Video: Telling a child that she DIDN’T BUILD THAT

This video hits a lot of notes.

Obviously, the main point is to show the absurdity of Obama’s statist, collectivist “You didn’t build that” concept (which we call the Obama-Warren Doctrine).

It also touches up against the allegory of grade redistribution and, if one is paying close attention, obliquely hints at the I, Pencil theme.

All of that is rather abstruse for most folks, though. The main point is obvious, and it helps clarify our thinking. Did that little girl make that popsicle-stick obelisk or didn’t she? Did she earn her A+ or not?
