Get Me Away From This!

I am so tired of all the regulations here in California. Perhaps it's because we own a business, but we are constantly bombarded by more rules, regulations, taxes, fees, and paperwork. And constantly scrutinized and made to feel that we are doing something wrong! Just last week I went to the City of San Jose for a building permit. I won't go into ALL the details, but it had to be one of my most miserable experiences in my 57 years. Not only did they give me wrong information and a big run around, but they must have asked me three times if I was the contractor and did I have worker's compensation insurance. Hello, all you have to do is check our license with the CSLB and you will see that I have been doing this (with worker's comp) for over 20 years, and "Yes, Thank You Very Much, I Am The Contractor!"

Anyway, I am officially sick of all these acronyms and their associated organizations and their ridiculous forms, regulations, and fees:
IRS
FTB
SJVAPCB
ADA
CSLB
FAFSA
COS
SPD
SFD
UL
OSHA
DMV
DOT

Is it any wonder that businesses are running away from California as fast as they can? Is it any wonder that I want to fun away from California as fast as I can? The only acronym I'm liking right now is my 401k.
