    ??? WTF??? A startup business that profits??? or just an idea of how to start one and you can get together with all your liberal buddys get high and ponder the idea. 98% of startup businesses FAIL

    • So don’t do anything? Don’t learn anything? Sit on the couch all day, get high, play videos and do nothing?

      Entrepreneurs, risk takers, dreamers, inventors, small businesses, and yes, even the gold rush mentality at work. Just be sure to follow the rules and pay your taxes, dude.

And watch out for that tree, George!

      Besides, ‘ya gotta learn and start somewhere.
      Just ask Trump.

  • DELUSIONAL LIBERAL

    Most people wanting to start a business would probably be contacting a hard-core conservative , the conservatives want less government taxes and interference with their business. (I.E. Capitalism). Why would any good liberal be looking for launching a business anyway?? Aren’t there a plethora of government programs one could get paid from?? A check from Jesus every month?? Every good liberal has found out how to get paid from the government, isn’t that money enough?? Small business and entrepreneurs don’t make as much as the government entitlements provides anyway!!! How many times are you in the Safeway line backed up with food stamp credit cards???? There that is a big pile of food …
