I left my job at 49 and started making my way through self storage. I wanted something simple, requiring no employees, and a business in which my hard work would allow me to create a difference that customers would notice. Unfortunately not everyone can do what you and I did for a number of reasons. We need government that will make it easier for those wtih small businesses who are more agressive and need people to carry out their plan. Obama is a disaster as he is a Harvard elitist who simple does not know or care about what it takes to make it as a small businessman. He is a disaster of epic proportions as our national leader. Did you see his arrogance and contempt for opposing views during the health care meeting?
