Meet Ray Gaster, the business owner behind the “Obama can kiss my a–” signs

Yesterday we reported on a new sign that had cropped up in opposition to Obama’s “you didn’t build that.” Well apparently there are more signs like that one and they are being made by Ray Gaster, a lumber yard business owner in Georgia who found Obama’s comments very offensive – enough that he made a sign that said “I built this business without gov’t help. Obama can kiss my a–” and started taking orders from other people who want their custom version of that sign.

He was on Greta last night:

  • Obama will lose in Nov.

    • hbnolikeee

      it must be a landslide or they’ll keep in courts contesting it for years. plus it must exceed the number of fraudulent votes that they will certainly inject into the system.

  • stevenbiot

    I’m gonna purchase one of those signs and post it in the lobby at the health clinic I work at.

  • 911Infidel

    Well said. And Obama can kiss my a$$ too. I wouldn’t pee on Obama or any of his cronies if they were on fire.

    • keyesforpres

      I would! Tee hee!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    If obama loses in november the “you didnt build that” will haunt the tyrant forever. I believe that Romney should keep hammering away with it.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Straight forward, articulate, eloquent… I respect and appreciate this guy. The words are strong and perhaps tacky… but the message is clear and warranted. I’m proud of you Mr. Gaster. I also like that this has caught on with other businesses across the states… good.

    • Patriot077

      He was very eloquent and didn’t leave Greta any room for misleading questions. Good on him…I wish I had a business so I could hang a sign!

      • DebbyX

        Did you build your home, buy a car? Yeah, me too. We did that on our own with no help from the Government. Buy a sign!

        I’m thinking of doing the same!

  • Good for him! Standing up for what is right and what is proper! It gives me heart to see people of good character standing up for themselves and refusing to take that BS “you didn’t build it” nonsense and insult lying down! The only things NObama built are national debt, distrust, racial divisions, unemployment, the number of people on welfare and on food stamps. And the really disgusting thing is he’s proud of it!

    This community disorganizer never ran as much as a lemonade stand and he has the gall to try and tear down people who genuinely poured blood, sweat and tears into building up a company to provide for their families and provide a good wage to his or her workers!

    Hurry along November, we need some R&R pronto!!!

    • sDee

      It is even deeper than not having run so much as lemonade stand, Obama does not even have a basic grasp of even day to day consumer economics.

      Here is something he said about car insurance in the healthcare debates that SHOULD HAVE SCARED THE HELL out of every American citizen.

      It is perfectly clear from this statement, that Obama does not even understand the difference between mandatory liability coverage and optional comprehensive/collision coverage.

      It is hard to believe that even a newbie high school drivers-ed student would say something as ignorant as this. The elephants should have been running this over and over and over on every media and internet channel they could.

      “” When I was young, just got out of college, I had to buy auto insurance. I had a beat-up old car. And I won’t name the name of the insurance company, but there was a company — let’s call it Acme Insurance in Illinois. And I was paying my premiums every month. After about six months I got rear-ended and I called up Acme and said, I’d like to see if I can get my car repaired, and they laughed at me over the phone because really this was set up not to actually provide insurance; what it was set up was to meet the legal requirements. But it really wasn’t serious insurance.

      Now, it’s one thing if you’ve got an old beat-up car that you can’t get fixed. It’s another thing if your kid is sick, or you’ve got breast cancer.””

      • Wow! Thanks for posting that. I somehow missed that. Or forgot it. But you’re right, it speak to his lack of understanding of even basic principles.

        • sDee

          Here it is

      • Patriot077

        When I heard that my jaw dropped … it convinced me that he truly is dumber than a box of rocks. That doesn’t mean he isn’t a competent community organizer but he has very little knowledge outside that circle.

        • sDee

          Yes! – and Sarah Palin is stupid?!

      • Dukehoopsfan

        You think he got rear ended while firing up the pipe?

      • RH

        why didn’t he contact the insurance company for the person who hit him? is this even a real story?

  • WhiteGuy2

    Indeed if one would make a list of the top ten things to do in order to sabotage the American economy. These are the exact things Obama has done in his first yr in office.

    Intentional ? “You Betcha”

    • sDee

      Agreed! Barack Hussein Obama has been one of the most highly effective Presidents we have ever elected.

      He has delivered on the policies he promised. Had the Tea Party not turned out to take the House back, Hussein Obama would have passed Cap and Trade and stealth gun control…. and his 8 year mission would have been completed in only 4 years.

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    Love it – turning his banner into an internet business opportunity. The epitome of the American entrepreneurial spirit. Can’t keep us down!

    Our small town’s unemployment rate is 25% due to the loss of its lumber mill because of the “endangered spotted owl” scam. Residents here have 2 and 3 jobs: preacher/farrier, FedEx driver/cowboy/handyman, tire shop manager/landscaper…goes on and on.

    • badbadlibs

      Those who perpetrated the spotted owl “scam” as you so aptly put it, should be in prison.
      I live in the pac. n.w. and that scam has severly affected so many people.

      • I agree. It is positively criminal and most environmental issues are a scam. Don’t get me started what has been done to the farmers.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Curbing the logging industry has resulted in untold loss to many including the owls themselves, who lose their lives and habitat as forest fires rage through dry, overgrown forests. Turns out their major threat is “environmentalists.”

        Actually, the spotted owl doesn’t defend its nest, so other owls and birds of prey eat its eggs and young.

        • badbadlibs

          “Turns out their major threat is “environmentalists.”

          So true! That needs to be plastered everywhere! And yet another reason those who haven’t the sense God gave geese (enironMENTALists) should be made to re-imburse those whose lives were effected so severely.

          • westernhunter

            People need to connect the dots to enviromentalists and the marxist/communist movement.

  • anneinarkansas

    A man after my own heart.

  • badbadlibs

    It’s absolutley stunning that bo would say what he did and think it was a good thing! bo has no idea what it takes to open a business because he’s had life handed to him on a platter, never having worked at anything.
    I’m hoping the continued negative reaction to bo’s stupid love of socialism is a signal that American’s are fed up with the anti-business dope in the WH.

    • sDee

      I believe that the Presidente may not love or hate any “ism”. Marxism and Racism form his only frame of reference – he thinks and sees everything from that perspective.

  • WordsFailMe


  • Ladies and gentlemen: I submit we have a president who is the poster child to what happens when you are raised in a dysfunctional environment. BO doesn’t know any better because he has never been a part of something better. He has no frame of reference.

  • Patriot077

    Just heard on Rush’s show that Nov 6 will be a Chick-fil-a Day in America.

    I really like the sound of that!

    • p m

      Great. Time to plan the 900 mile round-trip from Vancouver!

      • Patriot077

        I think there is one in Bellingham, but if it is on campus it might require student ID. I need to check with one of my son’s friends who attends Western.

        • p m

          Thanks patriot – I checked on CFA day and it seems not to be there any more. Boise is the nearest one – but I adore autumn/winter travel, so will relish it. Just had a look to see if it’s in a red or blue state, and was delighted to see the first search response: Why is Idaho so Republican? Even better, eh? Something in the spuds?

          • Patriot077

            Dang! I looked it up for the Appreciation Day … but you’re right. Now Boise is the nearest. (Though there is a franchise for sale in Redmond … I’m only about 10 miles from there)

            • p m

              Thank you again, you’re very kind, patriot. Wish I were a US citizen so that Redmond franchise would be in my sights! I have let CFA know that a foray into Western Canada would see many franchise applications. We’re pretty conservative in BC, relative to the East. Thank God.

              • LdyDesign

                pm, once lived in Calagary. Beautiful, beautiful country with some of the most lovely people. Wish you were a US citizen too! We need more people like Mr Gaster to speak out.

              • Patriot077

                Oh, pm, I thought you might be in Vancouver, WA. I’ve always enjoyed my visits to your city. The people there have always been very kind and hospitable, and I’ve been very impressed with Canada’s more recent returns to conservatism. 🙂

                • p m

                  Late catching up here, patriot – sorry about the location thing. Mind you, was checking travel times by car and it turns out Boise is even further away. Might be time to use those airline points.

                  So glad you have enjoyed your visits here. Yes, it is a huge relief to have Stephen Harper as our Conservative Prime Minister after 13 years of liberal folly. Mr.Harper and his Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird are the only Western leaders anywhere (since 0zero came in) to stand up against the UN and stand for Israel and all Western democracies. We also feel kinship with the land of Israel up here, much like the US. OK, advertisement over. Thanks again, patriot!

  • p m

    Mr.Gaster is certainly plugged in to the malevolence of 0zero.
    Loved where he says at the beginning that his signs speaks to zero in “language he can understand”. Brilliant!

  • This is what makes America THAT SHINING CITY ON A HILL that Reagan spoke about…People who take the risk, start a business, seek success and in doing so lift others and offer opportunities. THIS IS AMERICA!! Something the Marxist and Community Clown have no idea about!! When I heard him you could sense the true sense of a small business owner. I know I am one and you worry all the time about your employees who look to you to make the company a success and who rely on you for the livelihood of their families. The responsibility is IMMENSE!! and when like Caster says things go bad or you lose business the anguish of letting people go is LIKING NOTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE!! Someone like the Marxist have NEVER MADE A PAYROLL, pondered over decisions that can help or hurt the company, wondering about money and financing, growth or cutting, finding customers, competing, taxes, regulations and surviving!! When I heard the Marxist that day in Virginia I almost lost my mind!! HOW DARE HE belittle what millions and millions of men and women have achieved on their own in building a business. Only a government loser and Marxist would have no idea!!

    Yes Obama’s remar is resonating much more than people realize. From coast to coast WE WILL NOT FORGET WHAT HE SAID!!! NEVER!! And I will spend as much as I can TO DEFEAT THIS MARXIST and AMERICA HATER!!

  • If I’m allowed to say it “AMEN”. I have a small business I started in 2001 with no help of goverment or banks. Hard work and myself built it. Porkchop from Texas “GO COWBOYS”

  • kong1967

    He hit the nail on the head. Obama’s “stimulus” money was nothing more than a slush fund for his friends. Obama has been nothing but slush funds for his buddies, campaign, party, vacation, golf, give speeches and declare war on the nation.

    Worst….President……EVER!! I would swear we were talking about Hugo Chavez.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    America needs more people like Ray Gaster. Small businesses are the backbone of American productivity and are job creators in spite of all the obstacles the Federal government puts in their way.

    And his sign ain’t too bad either.

  • DebbyX

    The town I live in has nothing BUT small businesses. Unfortunately, I live in CT. Our little Main Street USA should be wall papered with signs such as these. What a bunch of wimps and dump Libs.

  • 12grace

    Love it. Americans have had enough of obama’s BS.

  • More people must stand up and express their frustrations because the emperor will only take questions from ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, which is part of his propaganda machine in Hollywood. The 2016 movie was great and I recommend it to all who still have some love for our Constitution.

  • He was talking about infrastructure.

    The roads, bridges, railroads, television and radio technology, the god-damn internet –

    You may have had to struggle and innovate to get where you are, but you started off standing on the shoulders of others.
