I love that you don't recommend them because you aren't willing to run properly. Very nice. I'm going to spread this out just to see if I can get some crossfitters and barefoot runners rolling. Hope it gets better for you, if not you got the best kind of aqua socks. (unless you didn't get a strap then they don't work for that either.)

True. I guess I just rank that bad up there with fast food companies and internet marketers. People know it is crud, but they think, "Hey quick and easy." Oh well.

While I agree that startups should not pay to play. The angel groups being portrayed as "bad" really annoys me. These angel groups prey on the uninformed and ill prepared. This is the startups' problems.

While non-competes can affect startups, what about things like doctors? Many young doctors gain experience working for more experienced doctors. Often these doctors have specific localized agreements to prevent their protégé from opening a practice nearby. (7-15 miles, is the trend I have seen.) I also saw it in high end software support where competitors are across the street and the analysts have specific knowledge that would be detrimental to lose to specific competitors.
I would not support legislation to restrict the rights of people to trade on their ability to leave. First, if an individual does not want to agree to not run to a competitor at the outset then they can just not accept the position. Secondly, I would rather the government not take away yet another individual right. (Caveat: Industry specific antitrust situations would fall outside of this concern.)

At least, that is secured credit. Much better than credit cards or many lines of business credit that is basically just a signature loan.

Evidently a third party candidate needs 15% in the polls to be asked to participate. This was a truely bipartisan agreement. I am surprised the law has not been challenged in the Supreme Court.

I think it will weed out some analysts to that valued companies for what they said they have instead of what they actually had.

I agree with the over abundance of credit and the availability. I believe things would be better if people on the consumer level understood the risk aligned with credit and the government enforced credit. Maybe labor camps for the debt offenders to work off debt.

I have loathed the "who's to blame question" regarding the collapse of credit and financial institutions. It is the shareholders fault. When did they become the victims. They own the companies. They appoint the boards and hire the CEO's. The CEOs are employs.
I feel no pity for those with stock in the failing companies as it is their own fault the companies are failing. The government and business communities are facing scalability issue when they are so big that not a single true owner (stock holder or citzen - not taxpayer, but citizen.) feels they have the responsibility.

I am not a fan of any term limits.....but it may be the only way. I cannot think of a better way as long as civilians fail to act as their own keepers.
