Let’s make Christmas Great Again!

Let’s make Christmas Great Again!
Or, what I really want from Santa this year

Now I know no politician either national or local has ever really run on reducing the regulatory burden on small business so I am going to have to take this appeal directly to Santa. Santa, if you are listening, what I want for Christmas is less burdensome paper work from county, state and federal agencies.

This is something I have been quietly complaining to myself about for the past year or so. It seemed to me that every month or so some new regulation would pop up from the county, state or one of the many federal agencies that love to get in on the action. The tipping point came for me last week when Matt, our tireless General Manager, told me that we got a letter from the TTB (federal agency that governs what we put on our labels and other fun things) informing us that our labels were not in compliance. And here is the bizarre part; they have not been compliant for our entire 40-year history. Imagine my reaction. And if anyone can guess what is amiss with our labels I’ll be VERY impressed. Hint: its really stupid!!
