    Just came across this in one of my typically subversive emails. Had not heard of it before, but when you read the summary it just reeks of more crippling federal oversight.

    Any finance/accounting people here? What has Sarbanes Oxley done for your company? This seems like SOX for agriculture and restaurants.

    Anyway, here's the link and a copy of the letter I sent to both senators, if anyone is interested.

    Too many small businesses is a pesky thing for the federal govt to keep up with, and small businesses owned by entrepreneurs is especially onerous to the govt, for if successful, those business owners are truly independent. The govt enjoys reeling out the red tape to put them in their place.

    Having a fewer number of businesses is easier to keep a thumb on, as well as being better able to control where people live and work. And if someone can't get a job at one of the large employers, then the govt handily gets another dependent.

    Big govt also loves the support big businesses give it, whether they give out of loyalty or fear.
