One of the things I shook my head over

 is when I heard that the mayor of Boston wasn't going to let Chik-Fil-A or whatever the damned place is called set up shop in Boston.

Apparently he doesn't like their stance on gays.

So? Let them in anyway. They will bring in a few more jobs and if people don't like them they don't have to eat there.

I've never eaten in one and eating in one is not on my immediate list of things to do but then again I suppose if I get hungry enough near one I might check it out.

I've watched a few states over the past four months run a lot of businesses out of their states with gun control laws. Colt is leaving Hartford and so are a few others.

Magpul and a few others are leaving Colorado and Beretta and Benelli are likely leaving Maryland.

When you add all of the companies that are moving out there is a LOT of money involved. It's not just the companies, either. It's the support and the other little parasitic businesses that rely on the company.

The very people that voted for the gun laws that have chased these businesses out are likely the same dumbasses that will hear that their Uncle Louie is out of a job because of it. They will stand there wide-eyed and agape and after a few flies land in their mouths they'll spit them out by saying something stupid.

"But...but...THAT'S NOT FAIR!!"

What's not fair about it is that they are now facing the law of unintended consequences and it's their turn to feel stupid. They have just $hit and fallen back in it and are angry that now they have to clean their own feces off of themselves.

They seem to have forgotten that they have created a lousy atmosphere for businesses and that if the business wants to make any money they have to leave and go somewhere else that will allow them to.

In reality they have not created the safety they were looking forward to. They have eliminated jobs, added to the unemployment roster, increased poverty and with poverty comes the inevitable increase in crime.

As for the firearms they have outlawed they haven't done themselves any favors because criminals don't obey laws in the first place. If they did we would not have any crime to begin with.

In short these states have done nothing whatsoever to make themselves any safer and have done quite a bit to make themselves poorer.

In fact they are likely to become a lot less safe.

Yet I see stupidity in high places everywhere I turn.

Not allowing that dopey Chik-Fil-A or whatever it is to open in Boston is just another example of lousy business sense on the part of the powers that be.

You voted for these people that hinder business, so save me your laminations. Take yourself into the darkness and moan, wail and gnash your teeth quietly so I don't have to hear it.

You already have made my ears sore when you whined about their moving not being fair.
