Thanks for responding. As always, you have been a gentleman and a provider of useful information. I hope the information you gave the others in this thread will help them. I understand your views on hand holding and seeking professional counsel. I guess the issue is more of “how” the licensing issue is regarded.
I’m only discussing what I actually observe here and, in my observation; the licensing issue is nearly disregarded here. I have no axe to grind with anyone here. This is a great site, so of course the people that make it what it is, are also. It’s just disappointing to me when the consensus encourages looking the other way.
It can be quite confusing and possibly lead to eventual disaster for the neophyte. I don’t agree with many laws that exist today. Some are unconstitutional in my opinion, but I know I should abide by them whether I like them or not. We all should. History has shown, when we look the other way once, it makes it that much easier to look the other way again. It’s like the old cliche: Do as I say, not as I do.
Case in point:
Very recently, this was a thread that passed through this board:
You yourself quoted Deals On Wheels as it pertains to the subject. I also did some more digging and found this:
I called a regional office for further clarification. They enforce the law as best they can, and yes they know people do get away with it…but they’re always looking.
It s*cks, I don’t like it, but I won’t disregard this particular law any more than I would any other law.(Not implying anyone suggested as such) I don’t think anyone else should either.
Those are my thoughts on it.
