My apologies for again being optimistic or Non Illegitimi Carborundum

Not the first time I've said this but the country is at the end of a rubber band and we're about to be sling-shotted...  [I'm sure there is a better syntax for that] into the economic future.

I suppose you want some more evidence other than the fact that I managed to get a job about 10 minutes after I really started looking.  

Buried under the headlines of the new Supreme Court Justice who will end the world as we know it, the pandemic the required endurance for which makes an Ultra Marathon seem like a sprint, the legitimate social unrest that is not going away soon nor should it, is a summary of an article I could have predicted and have been looking for.  The Wall Street Journal (I can only read the summary since the capitalist bastards want to charge me to read it directly!!) reports that there were 3.2 million EIN's taken out so far this year.  

If you've ever started a small business, that's the first step towards declaring that you really have more than a mom and pop thing going on and are serious and are interested in supporting a CPA and his family since your taxes just became much more complicated.  

People have been sitting around the kitchen table last year having just finished the Tiger King and very tired of hearing "I don't know what do you want to do" and thinking "Wait, those people could run a business?"
