protein wisdom "Everybody knows that protein is one of the building blocks of life, and you will find no finer protein in the blogosphere than that produced at protein wisdom" -- Bill Quick, Daily Pundit

You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative or Tea Partier. You believe in smaller government, states’ rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’"
Mr. Pearlstein is absolutely right. As CEO of my company, I am out of creativity. I will give you an example. The new health care law appears (the implementation is still hazy) to impose a $2000 penalty per employee for not having a corporate health care plan (all my employees are retired, so they already have health care plans, but that does not affect the penalty). With a bit over 400 employees, that makes the penalty something north of $800,000 a year. This is larger than my annual net income. And Mr. Pearlstein is correct — I am absolutely at a loss as to how to deal with this, which just proves his point that all we CEO’s have an appalling lack of creativity.
But, he added, “If you go in the military, they have months and months of instruction. The Chicago Police Department has months and months of instruction to fire a handgun. Handguns are used to kill people.
Mayor Daley you're an idiot. My weapon instruction in the military consisted of a few hours classroom instruction, a demonstration, then being handed a rifle and told to shoot the target downrange. Of course the military is much easier since the point of learning to shoot is to kill the enemy. Oh wait, that would be my intent for someone breaking into my home too.
