Comments:In a very sarcastic tone, I say: That's all we need! Another blow to free enterprize! I know there are some companies that give home based businesses a black eye. Why add to it by attempting to make the whole industry, meaning home based businesses, smell of "guilty until proven innocent"? Why not just go after the ones found in violation, instead of attempting to cripple everyone else, just in case? That seems so much more fair, not to mention, constitutional. It sounds to me much more like "big brother bureaucracy" that end up putting the little guy out of business? I am no expert, but it seems pretty clear to me that the one regulation about requiring a 7 day waiting period is a huge infringement on personal freedom, and down-right unconstitutional. If you are worried about people being bullied, or blind-sided, or conned, why not enforce some kind of contractual grace period? Give 7 days to change your mind, like the 3 day transaction cancellation that is already in place. Otherwise it is like my going in and showing people my merchandise, then saying, oh sorry, you can't buy it now, you have to wait a week. That is just dumb. How would you feel if you were that customer? How would you feel if you went to buy a car or furniture or something even bigger, like a home, and were told, "sorry, somebody out there doesn't think you are smart enough to know your own mind, so you have to wait a week, just to make sure you are sure you really want to do this". Give me a break!! Not only is it stupid, but it is wrong. I also have an issue with requiring that my identifying information be made available to others as a reference. I have a right to protect my privacy. That is a gross infringement, and one entirely un-neccessary to run a productive business. God Bless America, and the Constitution that keeps us free.
