But as it is now, hunger is the government's fault because they didn't give you enough food stamps in order to sell half for booze or drugs and feed yourself with the other half.
Blah blah blah are you people STILL beating that dead horse? It was vanishingly rare when it happened at all, and since EBT cards have been in use, it's been nonexistent. That is, for over 15 years now. Give it a rest.
How can you claim it is protecting freedom when it costs something on the order of 10k just to legitimately open a business in government regulation and permits alone in some places today?
What are you on about? I can open a sole proprietorship anywhere in the United States for $0. If I want to do business under a name other than my own, I can do that in my state for $7. I can even submit the form online. Rates are similar in most states. That's if I run it out of my house, which is perfectly legal (and a tax writeoff to boot). If I want an office in the nearest city, it's $50 for the occupancy permit if it's less than 12,000 square feet or $100 for anything over 12,000 square feet. That's hardly unusual, either. Pointing out the prices in Belle Aire is not doing your argument any favors.
Why people like you think laws like no spitting on the side walk is some valiant effort to protect everyone's freedoms or lives or human rights or something.
Because when that law was passed, it literally was an attempt at protecting lives. Sidewalk spit spread tuberculosis and diphtheria. The fact that it was unenforceable didn't mean there wasn't a reason for it.
You anti-government people piss me off. You're always all or nothing. How about we try for GOOD government, which is precisely what we need. We certainly can't exist with no government, not in our current numbers, and we've tried every possible bad government. Maybe we should have good government, for once.
