The Ridiculous: Gummint Regs

Mind you, this is the story behind killing a pre-born business.

...I decided it might be time to open a retail food establishment in the space that used to be a restaurant. How hard could it be? 

The link will give you all the gory details, but we're talking about $100+K to 'bring into compliance' a 1000 (yes, ONE thousand) square foot bagel shop.  BAGELS!!

There's more to it than just Gummint stupidity, though.  What this entrepreneur doesn't even suspect is that the HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical contractors' associations (and unions) are usually found behind the scenes agitating for all this horse-puckey--and that's before looking at crony capitalists.

Land of the free, my ass.
