    I was rather taken back by this story.

    I didn't catch if it said anything about whose she voting for. But this is as much about politics as anything. Leaders who can help to get this country, and people like Donna, back into the swing of things by getting the economy back on it's feet.

    I wonder if Obama would let Donna fail because she is to small ? Probably, I would think if she can't succeed...she can't succeed.

    But I tip my hat to those who have the guts to lay it out and start up a new business. I only wish our economy and government could do better by them.

    The government is Donnas bigest expense.

    Maybe she should change her name to Julia.

    I found the article tough to read.

    There are so many issues that DON'T get addressed in our political discourse. Things that would allow people like Donna a little less worry.

    The particulars of the business plan may not be something that would support going forward.

    But, I can't help but admire people like this who really lay it out there. She's not going to get rich.....just run something that she would be remembered for.

    You dont know many small business owners do ya?

    That's exactly how most get started... or they go to a bank for it.

    Oh wait.... "They didn't build that".

    I know quite a few, including myself. And maxing out your credit and cashing in your 401K is retarded. You don't throw away something you can't afford to lose.

    What are you trying to say, exactly? Her business plan sucks?

    And why would you admire someone that drives themself into the ground? Also, how do you expect government to protect them from stupid choices?
