My Political View

You won’t find me publicly endorsing one candidate over the other on FB. There is more than enough of that going around on social media these days. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts.

Here’s the only fact that allows me to maintain my sanity through it all…

“Life isn’t fair”

This is our ten year old elevator passing inspection at Aqualand. After paying OTIS elevator for this required certification service, we were informed the elevator was good to go, but the ladder wasn’t.

The ladder?!

“You mean the ladder that only gets used once a year by YOU during the inspection?”

“Yep” (insert expressionless elevator man face here)

Apparently our ladder is now 1.5 inches to high from the floor and “surprise” 1.5 inches to close to the elevator box.

Say what?!

Turns out Illinois changed their elevator inspection standards within the last year and now I will be out 4500 bucks to rectify a 1.5 inch “problem”

Illinois is a bankrupt state. Believe it or not someone has to pay for that problem. This is yet another classic government cash grab that as a business owner I’m expected to pay.

“Life isn’t fair”

As for my political views here goes.

LESS GOVERNMENT NOT MORE!

As a business owner when I don’t have enough to pay my bills I’m forced to work my ass off to increase sales or make gut wrenching decisions to cut expenses.

Our government only needs to change codes…by an inch and a half!

“Life isn’t fair”

I was blessed to be born in the greatest country in the world. I truly believe that! I was able to turn my love of turtles and nature into a lifelong career, thanks, in no small part, to where I live and the era I grew up in. But I’ve still got a long way to go with plenty of fights between here and the end of my career.

I’d prefer not to be adding any fights with my government as I make my way through the treacherous world of entrepreneurship. In fact, I’d very much prefer the government just stay out of my way while cheering my efforts from the sidelines. After all, any success I’m able to attain, they get a big piece of.

Sadly though, and here’s the crux of the problem, I think they would rather just watch my performance high up from their luxury skybox.

If so, I have a spare ladder now I’d be more than willing to let them use to climb up there!

Something tells me they will just stick to taking the elevator though, while sticking it to the rest of us.
