Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

I want to know what others think and have a debate. And make sure to check out my Articles and Columns if you haven't already.

So tell everyone you know.

Government Licensing Gone Wild!

This is a continuation of my previous post, Herman Cain on American Live W/Megyn Kelly, from yesterday. While this originally aired on 3/11/2010, it works with my previous post.

This whole issue of Licensing and Licenses, with some exceptions, is crazy. I can give you some good examples you might find ridiculous, as I posted back in my post, My Rage at the Minimum Wage, from 1998-2005 I ran my own small business, with myself as the only employee, I mainly sold collectible games, you might know some of them Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokemon, and several others as well as gift items for anyone. First for most of my time I was at a place called the Barnyard Flea Market in South Augusta, well I had to have a business license to be in one of the Mini Stores spots, as did everyone else, and this wasn't the market's policy this was law by Richmond County. I didn't think, still don't, that you should have a business license to sell cards, games or gift items, I still have friends over their that have to have a business license. Just a short list of items they sell toys, craft items ranging from things made from wood, cloth, beads, thread, and paper, movies, tapes, DVDs, and, music (all legitimate originals, no counterfeit goods,) Clothing new, used, and handmade, coins and other collectibles, used-not new glassware, plates, china, etc, books, comics, computers and other electronic items, other household items, and so much more, but if you wanted to do this in a Mini Store spots you needed a business license. Yet if you were to sell the same things in one of the open spaces you didn't need one, why? Probably because the county didn't think that any one would set in a space consecutively, but they do I know several people who use the same spaces, renting by the month, who sell the same stuff as people in the Mini Stores, including produce.

If you didn't read my previous post, Herman Cain on American Live W/Megyn Kelly, do so now because it is important for the next part. . . . . Ready, good.

As I said before when government sticks its nose in the business of businesses all it does is cause trouble for more then 75% of the time, such as with the railroads, only a few businesses one can really argue should be regulated, such as those that deal with food, and then only as far as it takes to keep the food supply clean and safe and no further. Because when it does it only increases the coasts of business, often to the risk of that business's health.

And before I finish this up I want to repeat something, Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware!


P.S. I want comments on this, especially any arguments on why people who sell cards, games, and some other things listed, almost all second hand, should have to get a business license to sell. Especially from any one on the left, but fellow conservatives are free to have fun with it too.
