Matt Yglesias has epiphany: Gee, it’s hard to start a small business in D.C.!!/jaycaruso/status/298089257925500928

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!

Gosh, It's kinda hard to start a small business, whines Obama-worshipping journo dipshit #HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAH

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

@iowahawkblog DC, NY, SF, USA… gee, what do all those business-unfriendly governments have in common?? #idiot

@iowahawkblog funny thing is it's not even in the top 10 of his dumbest posts

@iowahawkblog Why would anybody want to have a business in DC. It is the socialist land of milk and honey…

Matt Yglesias tries to stop the mockery.

Awful lot of conservatives totally unfamiliar with my work seem to have discovered this AM that I’m not a fan of local business regs.

— Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias) February 3, 2013

“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.

@NotReallyBarack In fact, I voted GOP in the last two local elections that had a Republican on the ballot.

The mockery continues and it is hilarious.

.@mattyglesias How many pages of business/entrepreneur stifling taxes rules & regulations has obama admin implemented? #askingforafriend

— Barbara McMahon (@southsalem) February 3, 2013

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

— LittleMissRightie (@LilMissRightie) February 3, 2013

@iowahawkblog @mattyglesias Were you really surprised that government made it harder not easier?!?!?!

Watching @mattyglesias discovering the problems of big government slow, you wonder: Does he never get out of DC? (1/2)

— BattleSwarm (@BattleSwarmBlog) February 3, 2013

.@mattyglesias could have picked up the phone and discovered big government's baleful effect on small business many many years ago. (2/2)

— BattleSwarm (@BattleSwarmBlog) February 3, 2013

But watching you fail to draw the obvious conclusions on the baleful effect of big government is priceless! @mattyglesias

— BattleSwarm (@BattleSwarmBlog) February 3, 2013

It’s funny, because it’s true.

.@mattyglesias wants to put y'all back in chains!

— Jimmy (@JimmyPrinceton) February 3, 2013

.@mattyglesias You didn't build that.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) February 3, 2013

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.


For the win:

Onerous regulations. RT @mattyglesias: How come Whole Foods doesn’t sell any decent tortillas? #logancircleproblems
