    It's Michelle's fault, encouraging people to eat healthy, despicable!

If so, then lindly provide a link to support it, otherwise accept my point.
    Nope, you misread what I wrote. I just made a generic statement about small businesses. I didn't specifically connect it with this closing. There's nothing in the article to support that.

    But I'd be willing to bet that Obama's policies had a lot to do with it.

    Then you should be able to provide evidence, or pay off that bet. It is not up to us to prove a negative.

    Did you read my previous post? Apparently not. Thanks for that hack attempt.

    I'm noticing a curious shift away from personal responsibility to a keen over-reliance on the federal government's policies, and it ain't the restaurant I'm talking about.

    I was noticing this, too. This place couldn't possibly have failed because of a bad business model, or because everyone likes Five Guys or Potbelly instead

    Restaurants come and go, especially in big cities. No big thing.

    Since 2 of his 3 restaurants were shut down for not paying rent, it sounds more like an owner who was either pocketing cash, or his management wasn't paying the bills and pocketing the cash.
