I May Offer a Libertarian Summer Internship

Over the last month, blogging has been both light and of lower-quality than I would like because I have been consumed with some growth opportunities in my business.  Frequent readers will know that much of my effort has not been business per se, but completing all the government waste paper needed to start a new business in a new state or industry.  A partial list of some of these tasks are here and here.

I am thinking next summer I may go on campus and find the strongest big government supporter I can find and hire them to do all this government paperwork -- my attempt to create one new libertarian each year.  Not sure how I would find the right person, though approaching local PIRG chapter or Campus Progressives organization might be a good start.

PS- What I would really like to do is hire one Congressman a year into that summer job.

Love the idea!

Until he retired, our Senator Bob Graham politicked by working one day per month in someone's business. Wonder if anybody ever gave him such an assignment.

Perhaps a liberal Congressman's child?

Oh, I had assumed that all Congressman were already on someone's payroll.

Great post! I am a partner in a small investment club and our taxes on a $400 loss took us forever to figure out. The federal side was no big deal, only a couple hours... but for Oklahoma it took FOREVER. The morons tried to tell me that our out of state partners owed taxes to the state on dividends. Bah!

Name on thing our government does well... take your time. Now name 20 thing the government screws up on a regular basis. Argh.

Make sure you rub it in a little... When the intern is filling out that useless paperwork for the 247th time-- remind him, "How much do you think the guy reading all those reports gets paid?"
