To the editor: Those who continue to misinterpret the president’s statement that no business was built by just one person are obviously desperately fishing for a reason to attack him. A recent writer insists that she built her business all by herself, “not owing anyone any money for anything.” Apparently, the writer was born to wealth, needing no mortgage or loans to obtain her building and start her business. She adds, “I built the road” and “I built the bridges” that bring in customers. She states, “The government doesn’t build anything - citizens do.” Most people grasp the concept that in America, citizens are the government. The writer owns a business in downtown Hendersonville, a vibrant center for small businesses. The website for Downtown Hendersonville states, “Downtown Hendersonville’s vitality is no accident. The community has worked together to promote the district.” So, although the writer may have failed to grasp the meaning of the president’s speech, we are grateful t ...
