Government isn't great: honest businesses shut down due to regulations

    I would like to put this question to Republicans and Democrats who support the ever more draconian regulation and bureaucracy that comes with expanding government: does it ever go too far?


    Here an honest make-up school might be shut down so that a cosmetology school can be put in its place. Licenses, fees and expensive requirements will force the business shut. More jobs lost to regulation.

    If I change the title to something Obama, Trayvon or gay rights related, would more people pay attention. Goodness me.

    Can you supply a link to something that isn't a video?

      Specifically for this issue or do you mean generally?

      Generally I find videos can summarise and convey meaning more effectively than any article.

        Videos are too easily faked.

          As someone who works in the video/broadcast field, I pride myself on being able to distinguish between works that intend to inform and enlighten and those intended simply to propagate a specific agenda. I consider the two videos posted to be examples of the former. If you find a factual issue with the videos then I'd be happy to hear it.

        I hardly ever watch videos for informational purposes.  I can read much faster and comprehend much more with the written word than with watching a video.

            And me. Also most people who post video links don't give you any idea how long they are. Will you have to set aside three minutes to watch it? Five? Thirty-five?

            Nah. Give me a written article any day.
