Pissing away our American Heritage

A Planned Ordinance, hurting independent diners and restaurants

Small Businesses across the nation get few services, but many fees, fines, and outrageous taxes.

Ask for police protection and service, and if you’re in a downtown area or lack political influence you don’t get any, just scrutiny of every transaction and action to see if there is a slight excuse for another fee, fine, arrest, or concocted event to confiscate the cash and assets.

Running a small business can put you at more risk for arrest and financial ruin, beyond what the average criminal parasite does. The parasite does not invest and give to the community and isn’t a revenue collection target either, as usually they are hard to find and to fine.

Corporations have a direct lobby into legislators to get pretty much what they want, when they want it.

An ordinance in Connecticut would require small and large restaurants to have a filtration system in dishwashing and sink drains, installed as early as this upcoming January costing a few thousand dollars, up to twelve thousand dollars.

If a few dishes are being washed, how much grease and oil can there be? A small volume restaurant would produce what a few normal households would.

Small restaurants might not have the space for the device and when rents for space are a struggle every month, the added cost might just put even more family, Mom and Pop shops out of business.

The time isn’t far off that America will have the same limited choices from the small number of chains, ever-expanding absorbing independents and lesser chains, border to border, sea to shining sea.

When there isn’t competition, policies can be strict and prices can rise.I hope to be long gone, being free and American elsewhere, when there are only a few corporations, merged with government to run everything, including every minute aspect of your daily life.

TOO LATE, is approaching fast.

Don Christmas is an example of what we are doing to those that fix up dilapidated downtown property, making affordable, quality housing options. They are harassed, fined, and threatened out of town.
