Starting a Business Is a Huge Pain
Slate, by Matthew Yglesias

Original Article

Posted By:Gambrillsgal, 2/3/2013 10:04:44 AM

Last week, having read my own writing about how it’s cheaper to buy a house than rent one in most markets, I decided to take my own advice. My wife and I bought a new place, and instead of selling our old condo, we’re going to rent it out. And thus I became a small-business man. Or, rather, I’m becoming one. Entrepreneurship—even on the smallest and most banal scale—turns out to be a time-consuming pain in the you-know-what.

Comments:
I think he´s just figuring this out. The comments are hysterical.

I thought Matty was their business correspondent. He´s surprised by this? We incorporated our family business back in the 80´s thank god. Too many young entrepreneurs won´t make the effort today because of the regulation and tax hassles. That´s before you even get to Obamacare and all the Federal morass.

Government will never ask ´How can we help?´

Government will always say ´You want to do WHAT?!?!?´

You won´t be surprised to find out Yglesias was a card carrying member of JournOlist.

I always get a kick when liberals enter the real world and find out their theories and beliefs consist of wind pudding, air cake and ground unicorn horns.
What´s even more amazing is this whiny little man was Slate´s "business" beat reporter. It has become obvious what he actually knew about business could have been deposited up an ant´s rectum and would roll around like a pea in a boxcar.

FTA: Shifting as much form-filing as possible to the Web, where it can be accessed 24/7, wouldn’t undercut any legitimate regulatory purpose.

No, it wouldn´t, but it would take the place of a bureaucrat and we can´t have that now can we?

What he needs to understand is that if he files all these forms online, no political patronage job is required, no one is needed to sit lazily at the desk down the hall in the drab building in the bad neighborhood.

Classic case of the problem with this country and the Leftists/Liberal/Progressives...they do not know how to work...hard. If it cannot be handed to them, then it is just not worth it.

My mother was very liberal while my dad was conservative as he was part owner of the family business his dad started.

My mother got her first outside job while in her late 40´s in an office and noticed that some worked less then others while getting paid the same or more....

When my parents retire to Arizona they started 3 business´s. By the the time they were on their 3rd my mother was very conservative. She commented to me that the state was always getting in the way.

Awww...libtard Slate writer doesn´t like the end results of a big government--when it inconveniences him. Awww, he has to walk into a bad neighborhood (guns only for criminals, please!) and he has to do all this work on SHUDDER, his own time.

Suck it up libtard.

Way back when I started a business or two, only 5% of all new businesses doors where still open at the end of one year! I´m sure it´s less than that today! It´s just too big of a chance to take! To survive on a small margin, no way! To hit it big is one in a million!

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

White is not right: Campus admins ask

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
