*Blink*. Seriously anyone who believes that helps small business is a burger, fries, and a drink short of a Happy Meal. All you have is an empty box full of napkins.
All this serves to do is raise costs equally across everyone, small and large businesses alike. In the end that will affect small businesses more because it will trim down their profit margin if they attempt to stay competitive. Larger retailers have a larger profit margin and can eat the smaller loss.
The assumption for the above is that the majority of my business is coming from local states. Not only that, but that I can in no way compete with local companies merely because of sales tax. Further many of the large retailers do have to charge sales tax because they have store fronts within the state.
So all this law would do, is cause small businesses to have to raise prices and append an additional tax. Large companies would have to do it just the same but they could more easily eat the cost giving them an advantage over small business. This is merely another example of how this Administration hates small business owners.
As a small business owner the mere mention of this while claiming it will help me is down right offensive, doubly so since that no talent ass-clown of a President accused me last Wednesday of being a liar for telling the truth. Here we are not even a week later and that narcissist is lying and trying to tell me swallow this pill of cyanide because it will help my business. This coming from a man who’s never run a business in his life.
Mr. President, shut the hell up and stop trying to destroy my business. It’s hard enough to get the damn thing rolling without you meddling in it and causing us to have to raise prices.
Remember though they need all that information to do their job and it couldn’t possibly be used for wrong. Seriously those two took identity theft to a whole new level where honestly there’s no way to stop it.
Welcome to the world of the police state. Where the police can ruin your life whenever they want and you are left to clean up the mess.

Because ultimately being a police officer means that you can rob and ruin the life of whoever you want merely because of the information available at your fingertips.*
The unions were protesting a cut in pay which occurred because of increased operating costs. I do find it funny that in this wonderful market, where I know many people who have taken pay cuts instead of raises, these people decided they were going to go on strike. Tell me geniuses, how is no income better than some income? Have no fear though because I’m sure they will all be collecting unemployment from the government. That means you and I get to pay them for their stupidity.
Doubly so since the company warned the union that they were going to have to liquidate and shutdown if they didn’t return to work. Well, the union called the bluff with one minor mistake, the company wasn’t bluffing.
The last thing I need is freaking Twinkies but man they take me back to my childhood. Thank’s for ruining a direct link back idiots.
Welcome to the demise folks. This is what happens as government regulation gets to the point where businesses can no longer thrive or be profitable. Things crash and augur into the ground. Get ready folks because this is going to get worse, a lot worse. Especially when you consider the number of people dependent on the government, when the hand outs stop, they’ll just attempt to take their handouts from others.
Atlas is starting to shrug and it seems a lot of people don’t even realize it.
The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall.
Cicero, 55 BC
[So, what’s changed in the last 2067 years that some how makes this republic exempt?
My mom emailed this to me after the previous post on the budget.
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance."
She added the comment we have learned nothing in the last 2067 years. She’s right. Those who don’t learn from history are bound to repeat it. The problem is though is you have a large segment of the population getting free stuff from the government. They don’t want that to stop until every last drop is sucked out.
Get ready folks because the fall of the Roman Empire wasn’t exactly a fun ride. -B ]
Why doesn’t everyone just give up operating within a budget. Since government doesn’t need to, why should I? Hell the government can increase their debt limit too! The credit agencies should just allow me to borrow as much money as I want. If it isn’t a problem for the government why is it a problem if I do it?
Seriously, someone answer the question. How is it OK for the government to keep writing check, using my name I might add for part of the bill, but they don’t need to have a budge to live within. Not only do they not have a budget, but when they run out of money they just borrow more.
Most people I know are tightening their belts. It appears Washington has decided to go Robb Allen and ditch the pants and belt. Obviously they missed the part where Robb doesn’t do debt which is why he doesn’t need a belt.
You cannot obtain wolf tags within the state of Washington. Not even depredation tags which would allow the wolves to be taken as they’re a problem to live stock. Think about that for a second, instead of allowing the public to hunt, control, and otherwise reign in this problem, the state spends almost a half million dollars a year on the problem.
The best part is they aren’t even really maintaining the status quo, overall they’re loosing and the problem is getting worse.
Idaho finally got the right idea and made tags dirt cheap because odds are you won’t see a wolf, they’re too damn smart, but if you do see one, shoot the bastard! As usual animal rights activists I’m sure will end up in an uproar because they live in places like LA or Seattle where they don’t get to experience the problem first hand. If we could relocate the wolves so the animal lovers could live with the problem I’d be in full support.
As an FYI my buddies who went elk hunting in Idaho this year informed me the hunts were a total bust. Why? Wolf tracks were on the tail of any elk tracks they found. The packs are out of control and decimating wildlife. Remember though, according to the animal rights folks, all will work itself out. Never mind there is no other predator to hunt the wolf, I guess their solution is the extinction of the elk and deer herds.
Lets not forget increasing the state deficit in Washington by having to pay farmers for damaged stock and then the state trying to hunt them down. Know what’s easier? Hunters will pay you for the opportunity. Hell I would go out of my way a few times to go wolf hunting.
