Letter: This guy’s a hoot!
June 21, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

After reading John McDowell’s piece “Bureaucratic barriers,” in the June 14-15 edition of the Daily Journal, I just have to say, this guy is a hoot. He’s so funny! Either that, or, he is completely delusional. I’m not laughing at his plight, well sort of, as he goes through the motions of getting a business license, but what’s funny is, he whines and complains about the laws, rules, regulations and procedures millions of Californians have previously gone through, and we didn’t complain. What’s funny is that McDowell, in his typical Republican/conservative opinion, thinks he shouldn’t have pay for anything and that he shouldn’t have to follow all the procedures, rules, regulations and laws. That’s what’s funny! What is even funnier is that McDowell is clueless why we have such procedures, rules, regulations and laws. It is to protect the public, ensuring the public’s safety and well-being. McDowell doesn’t get it.

What’s funny also, is McDowell’s contradictory reasoning, as he writes about is ordeal. He thinks that since he can’t get his business license, resale and seller’s permit and Fictitious Business Name done online, because it keeps people employed in government jobs, those jobs should be eliminated, for the sake of “job creation and entrepreneurship.” Wow! What a crack up! This guy should write comedy.

It's great, we need to get rid of them
Doesn't matter around here, they are already banned
Don't like it
Hope it starts a nationwide trend
Don't like it, but whatever
