Obama lapdog Matt Yglesias has epiphany: Gee, it’s hard to start a small business in D.C.!

Zing! Reap what you sow, indeed. Aww, poor, little Matt Yglesias took some time out from talking about how Obama’s kids are more important than yours to lament how hard it is to start a business. No, seriously. He wanted to “build that,” but oh-how-hard it is!

Twitter users gasp for breath, while pointing out some pesky reality to Yglesias.

Matt Yglesias tries to stop the mockery.

“It’s the irony, stupid.” Also, he admits local regulations are business-killing, but federal Big Daddy Government regulations, burdens and business-killing policies are hunky-dory? Oh, sweetie.

Some of his best friends are Republicans.

The mockery continues and it is hilarious.

It’s funny, because it’s true.

Zing! But, take heart Matt. There is a job for you yet.

Heh. Since we are givers, we’ll offer up some follow-up required reading for Yglesias. Get out of the beltway bubble and talk to some small business owners.

First it was “You didn’t build that.” Now Yglesias has discovered another aspect that those living in reality realized long ago: You can’t build that. Government business-killing regulations won’t let you.

Update:

For the win:

    If there were no “D”s or “R”s on the ballot, but just the actual policy of the candidates with no name. Democrats would never win another election.

    • Jim Denney

      Kinston, NC tried that. Eric Holder and the JustusDemocrats Department sued them.
      Sad but true ….

      • b_truit

        Why would they sue? Could they be fearful of what would happen if people voted on policy?

      You’d like to think so, but try getting people in CA to part with welfare or Iowans and Minnesotans to do away with farm subsidies.

    Geez, it hard to try to get something done when the GUV is involved. I hope my appendix holds up. What a dumbass.

    Yglesias’ extended little whine boils down to, “Big government and its useless regulations are a wonderful thing, but they’re not supposed to apply to ME! It’s just not faaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiirr!”

    And that’s liberalism right there.

    Memo to LilMissRuleOfLaw:

    “My favorite part may be where @mattyglesias laments having to walk through a ‘sketchy neighborhood’. Hey, Matty, Welcome to Liberalism!”

    Kudos!

    Memo to Matt Yglesias:

    That ‘sketchy neighborhood’ was created through decades of hard work by liberals and the D.C. City Council. Whose bed you crawl into each night!

    Deal with it!!!

    • Jim Denney

      It’s The Kismet neighborhood; centered around the mosque at the corner of Irony Drive and Karma Street.
      But why is he nervous? It’s in a gun free zone.

    liberal wants to fire all those hard working bureaucrats whose whole job it is is to ensure that the proper forms are filled out. How many people have jobs just so that others can’t create them? welcome to public sector spending.

    Hey, Matt. In all seriousness, where do you think the federal over-regulators started? They cut their teeth in localities by condemning property for “public use”, restricting what homeowners can do in their own yards and deciding what vehicles you can or can not park on the street, or even in your own driveway.

    But heck, what’s the fun in controlling thousands of people when you can take a shot at millions of them? Wake up! Your side of the aisle does not trust citizens to make their own decisions.

    I have to say, this morning I was in a pretty low state, watching the news and the political shows. I was thinking, “How are we going to endure four more years – at least – of this?”

    But, Twitchy to the rescue! Two threads about Hollywood stars speaking out for the good guys, and now this? Things are still as dark as ever, but maybe there’s hope the sun will rise again.

    BTW, Matt, remember, all politics is local.

      Things always get worse before they get better. Me? I’m about to move from the northeast to texas for a new job next month!

    I wonder if he will realize that standing for big government will always lead to people getting hurt.

    NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. He’s a leftwingwacko. Brains not included.

    Yglesias don’t act so damn ignorant. You know very well that one must apply to a Black gang for a “corner” franchise, and then apply to MS13 for a supply connection, and within weeks you can be drivin a sklade with a $10,000 sound system. You got to be knowin what the market is, and then just cater to it. Simple as shit. And the perks and fringe benefits are amazing, a free govt.check every month, free housing, free medical (great for removing the occasional 9mm projectile from ones stomach,) free food, free lawyer, etc etc etc……. I mean c’mon now, even a Harvard rat knows how easy it is!

    if you fuck up really bad, just shut up. whatever you say itll only harm you even more

    Not surprisingly (seriously, is ANYONE ‘surprised’ by this news?) Matt Yglesias just posted an article on Slate titled “How We Overregulate and Underregulate at The Same Time”. In the article he literally writes “Business licensing is different.” By which he means, ‘what I complain about is legit, what you conservatives complain about is bogus’.
    Defensive much, Mr. Y?
