That’s just restaurant businesses, expat.

It's often said that more than half of new businesses fail during the first year. According to the Small Business Association (SBA), this isn't necessarily true. The SBA states that only 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years and 66% during the first 10. The SBA goes on to state that only 25% make it to 15 years or more.

Right. But when your post generalized I wasn’t sure if you differentiated ... which I didn’t specify just to be picky ... but because I know how some readers grab a statement and run with it on face value alone

True, answering one specific question is not always something people recognize and they think it has broader applications.

Not only the most innovative but imaginative. I see this coming to TV soon as a recruiting tool for the CHP.

Those are usually in places where Democrats are in control

Those are usually in highly desirable places with growing economies.

Regardless, they aren’t California ... therefore the issues cited aren’t unique to California.

haha Tulemutt just can't accept any blame for supporting an ideology and party that has fostered the rot that the DNC has.
This is exactly why California is how it is. Based on strangely distorted logic, because California is doing so well, is why it's doing so bad, don't you see ?

No, I don’t see. You make no sense.

I don’t support ideologies or parties. I support science, logic, and historical precedent.

“Ideologies are bad excuses for lazy intellects.” ... It that shoe fits, wear it.

Do NOT criticize communist China, er, I mean, Ca. People get soooo upset when that happens. I thank them for paying my huge pension though. It's about to hit my direct deposit once again!
