More Fun from Prince William County

First they ran off taxpaying homeowners and now Prince William County is set to run off small business owners. 'Cause you know, they're just rolling in dough.

That's right, boys and girls, Washington Post reports that every businessowner who wants his or her county business license renewed (i.e., physicians, mortgage brokers, restaurateurs, insurance agents, merchants and so on) must now stand in a long painful line before they can renew their license.

Of course, some officials have a few qualms.

Supervisor Martin E. Nohe (R-Coles), a small-business owner who expressed reservations about the business license requirement last year, said it could put Prince William at a competitive disadvantage because people in other counties can apply for their certification online or by mail.
Nah, you think...?

Happy, happy days for the idiot Republicans running the county; this should definitely win them a few more endorsements from the Chamber of Commerce.
