    • I think those “Don’t California My (fill in the blank) slogans are running rampant everywhere, including here in Texas, where Californians are perhaps relocating to more than any other state in the country.

      • LOL I hear ya, James…and as a life-long Bronx Boy (now miles north of Ground Zero)…I just want you to know that a shit ton of NYers north of NYC feel just like you do!!! And if any of us decide to move South, we won’t be bringing Gov. Mutt Cuomo’s beliefs with us…like people in the Hudson Valley – the area where West Point watches majestically over the lower Hudson Region…and the Adirondacks, the Catskills, Roscoe (Trout Town USA), Hammondsport (Cradle of Aviation – Curtiss Wright Aviation), Sherill (Silver City – Oneida Silver), Cooperstown (MLB Hall of Fame), Granville (Granville: “Colored Slate Capital of the World” – is the only place in the world where naturally-colored slate has been mined for over a century), Troy (“Collar City” – is famed for being the birthplace of Samuel Wilson, the inspiration for America’s “Uncle Sam).
        LOL James…I bet you’re saying “WTF did I do to get this infomercial from this azzhole”…but just want you to know NYC is not NY State. Thanks, brother.

  1. Litmus test for the guys wrestling with working toward self-employment.

    1. At the end of the day do you want work to stop, change directions and worry about it tomorrow?(does not mean you don’t bring work home , but that work is attacked then put aside)
    2. At the end of the day are you still working on the business, embracing new ideas, staying up late or getting up early, totally absorbed in ideas to make the business grow?

    #1 stay employed you may not make as much money but you will be happier in the long run
    #2 go for it. You will be happier, and more satisfied working on your dream and vision.

    • I gotta go with #2. Put the work in for 5 years and then you and your co-worker hire a few good employees like you to do the majority of the work. The way I look at it is, you can work 40 hours a week for the next 20 years as employees, or work 60-80 hours a week for the next 5 years as owners. Maybe even find a way to automate most of the daily tasks you do (see The Four Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris as a starting point). If done correctly and you hire the right employees, come up with systems, automate, etc., you’ll actually work much less in the long run.

  2. 20-Year Old from Maryland: Do your parents also acknowledge that Trump essentially saved the economy by opening everything up sooner? I think that’s the counter-argument to all of this. They can either believe the “virus is all Trump’s fault” or that “Trump ruined the great economy with the shutdown” but not both. That’s the problem I have with the Democrat’s arguments. It’s either one or the other, but it can’t be both. For me, I’d rather have the economy back booming.

  3. As a libertarian who leans conservative who is likely trapped in California for the next 12 years (career, wife’s career, and kids) I can’t figure out why people leave this state only to vote for the same crazy policies that drove them out. You can’t whine about Gavin Newsom and Sacramento, then move to Boise and keep up the same behavior, only to expect a different outcome
