This development is going to piss Obama and the rest of the democrats off to no end. Independence of spirit and free enterprise aren’t what the dark side has in mind.
Well if there was any plausibility to it, you’d think eBay would show great interest too. (Maybe they do for all I know.) It’s an inevitable consequence of big businesses losing due to progressive policies that target them. The economy tries to come back through small businesses.
That’s per house on his poo rounds, of course. Get a neighborhood of that and you can make some pin money.
I know this to be a fact. Lost my job, then started my own business.
Meanwhile, on the sidewalk in front of my business, lie two Occupy dorks who are left out in the streets after being kicked out of the local parks with their tents confiscated. College educated and too proud to get a menial job, yet not so proud as to beg on the sidewalk.
Uh...no they are trying some are trying to survive and some have indeed learned to depend on themselves...
I started my business fifteen years ago, for precisely that reason. After surviving the first horrifying twelve months, we were off to the races and never looked back.
Since the Dims took control of Congress in 2006, it's been tough as hell to make a living, but I wouldn't go back to being someone's employee for love or money if I could (which I can't).
Yep - 16 years ago for me. “What do you call a guy that’s just been laid off? A consultant!” (Funny - the day they let me go I knew it was the best thing for me.)
I think you hit it right on the head!
I wish I'd been so confident on the day I made that decision. My wife and I had just paid the first payment on our first house, and had a baby due in two months. And we already had a toddler who hadn't had his first birthday yet.
Talk about scared.
The only thing that took the edge off for me, was the fact that I'd temporarily gone to work for a buddy who was up to his eyeballs in work. He'd asked my wife and I to run his one man shop for a few weeks while he was out of town. He didn't get back for six weeks. By that time, we'd learned the ropes of his business well enough to strike out on our own.
Just barely, though. We really only knew enough to be dangerous, but we persevered, and made it anyway.
With no help from Big Brother, I might add. That first year we went to the SBA to get a 'micro loan' and they turned us down cold. Don't tell me I "didn't build that". I most certainly did.
The Seasonal Job, driving the Mentally Ill to the Polls for the Democrat Party ended on November 7th.
Translation: After endless months spent searching for jobs, some people create their own.
