The City didn't shut her down for not having a food handlers permit? WISHA didn't inspect her home as a commercial kitchen and make her put in a fire suppression system? She didn't have to get permits and licenses and register as a 503 of some sort?
That's the real miracle here...someone was able to do a good deed without government interfering.
You comparison of competition in the educational field and the political field couldn´t be more apples to cinder blocks.Every election the people have choices, there is competition, and the winner crowned. You fuss because your team doesn´t win much in Idaho, that is not however lack of competition, that lack of people voting for your team.K-12 education, however, is a monopoly. There are no choices for parents, taxes are taken for education regardless of if you even have children, let alone based on where your child might be educated. There´s no choice in schools, teachers or any other part of the education system. It lacks any aspect of competition whatsoever. I´m sure you´d like people to confuse competition with representation and be sympathetic to your cause, but they are not the same in any way. Political representation is the RESULT of fair competition, lack of educational choice is the result of a bureaucratic monopoly, a monopoly sacred to Democrats and their union friends. Ironic where you choose to abhor lack of competition.

Who gets to draw the line? If the bank hired them to play their Christmas party...is that noble whoring?
Does this really tell us anything if they are not comparing the same job across women/men? If all the women decide to become orthodontists and all the men decide to become brain surgeons and brain surgeons make 25% more, is that an inequality in the workplace, a gender bias? Just seems like not taking into account any factor other than "average wager per hour" gives a potentially misleading picture. Obviously there is a gap that needs to be closed, but this way of comparing is unlikely to tell us the real story about that gap.
"Forcing" people across state lines? We aren´t talking about diabetes medication here, nobody was forced to drive out of state to buy their booze for a few bucks less. My understanding is part of the tax dissolves after the first year? Where will that put us in line with pricing once that happens? A
