Casualty of Incremental Communism: Tam’s Burgers

Big Daddy O’s Beach BBQ is far from the only business popular in the local community to fall victim to deliberate strangulation by regulation:

Capitalism has done too much for too many to be snuffed out all at once. So bureaucrats grind it out of existence one business at a time.

On a tip from Katya Kakhov.

    Atlas must shrug. Let the looters starve.

    Top three LAPD cold cases… Nicole Brown, Natalie Wood, Elizabeth Short.

    They can wait; they’re still dead. Instead, shut down a burger joint for not paying protection money (aka – free burgers to the LEOs)

    Nice.

    To quote Stevie Wonder, ‘L.A., just like I pictured it.’
    What a bunch of assholes running that slum. Maybe the cops should start doing their job better near the restaurant. If he hasn’t been robbed in all that time; and withstood the riots; then they are harassing the wrong people.

    @ gemalo

    The cops are jealous, plus the owner is a good neighbor.
    You can’t have that.

    Remember the old axiom: “If there weren’t any wolves, you wouldn’t need shepherds.”

    I’m sure now that he’s closing, that empty building will really deter crime.

    To top it off, he probably paid $1000 for his chance to ‘appeal’.

    The time for appealing is over, start the list.

    4:05 Thirteen incidents, including two homicides, three drug busts and two felony assaults, all in less than three years? Sorry, bub, it’s time for you to leave. A woman in my high school class owned a bar in Pennsylvania with a dodgy reputation. She sold and closed the place because it was too much hassle.

    THAT SAID … come on over to Florida. If LA doesn’t want you and your tax revenue, FUCK ‘EM.

  • James McEnanly

    It sounds like the city councils idea of restaurant decor is a prison.

    ^^ Say, what’s with that stupid pop-up link? I didn’t ask for that.

    LAPD were looking for their freebies. In NYC there is a long history of cops “helping themselves” to food and whatever was in the cash register. I almost feel sorry for the law and order types who post on here that cannot understand the level of corruption and the reasons for the hatred and distrust of cops in the cities. It is well earned.

    These are the things that go on every day in Progressive Utopias and Liberal Paradises. Bloomberg kills every New York City small business by turning every agency from the Health Department, Building Department, Sanitation Department, Taxation, Department of Finance, Department of Environmental Protection, Police and even the Fire Department into collection agents. Their goal is to extort revenue that will be squandered and drive business out of existence. Queen Bloomberg makes no issue with the size of wine glasses but is no regulating the size of soda bottles – more revenue to be collected in writing fines for small store owners.

    It is time to pack it in and carve out a new nation for ourselves in another part of the world.

    @ justme – “It is time to pack it in and carve out a new nation for ourselves in another part of the world.”

    It’s nice and warm here in the Underworld. :evil:

    I live in L.A. County. As a field service mechanic, I
    have eaten at many Tam’s restaurants. As fast food joints go, Tam’s are very good.

    I am shocked, shocked that there is a lot of crime in
    South Central L.A.! What next, the LAFD attempting to
    regulate businesses because of inordinate amounts of
    fires in a neighborhood?

    Maybe the LAPD should spend less time in the doughnut
    shops and actually start arresting criminals. These
    backdoor regulations could effect liquor stores, body
    shops, day care centers and churches.

    Are liberals hell-bent on the complete destruction of
    all forms of commerce?

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    What can you expect from liberals running the joint ?

    “”Leonard Jones says: Are liberals hell-bent on the complete destruction of all forms of commerce? “””

    In a word ? Yes .

    And to reiterate , know them all , biblically , in the neck . And a personal message for Eric Moore , who might be able to speak in a polysyllabic fashion ,would still not get my joke .

    FUCK YOU IN THE NEXUS .

    “I almost feel sorry for the law and order types who post here……..”

    Another stupid f*n comment from a person who projects his no-nothing ignorant biases onto others.

    The LAPD wasn’t looking for their freebies.

    Jeeze I’m sick of your asinine crap. Every other place is not Bloombergistan. Please stay there – you’ll contaminate the nicer places with your nausea.

    The cops in the divisions or on patrol aren’t looking for free burgers.

    If they did get free burgers it’s because this guy was probably nice enough to offer them some just to have them around.

    The problem is either at the top at the council level (listen to the councilman’s response to this owner’s eloquent defense – its shameful and seemingly premeditated), or it’s a racial battle between some black higher-ups (like the nasty LAPD spokesman) and the latino area that the blacks want to claim.

    101 and Figueroa is contested territory and blacks have been steadily losing jobs and territory to latinos. They no longer control the elevator operators, hotel valets, garbage collection, among other long time black holdings.

    This is a personal grudge or a liberal politician who has been ordered to do it – it’s not from the cops per se.

    The cops down the line couldn’t do anything about it if they wanted to – they’re too busy staying alive. I’m surprised this could happen under Villaraigosa (a LaRaza loving liberal) but when you have a black president and a black spokesman (Van Jones) going around the country “suggesting” the democrat city councils do such-and-such, they pretty much jump.

    Whatever, this businessman was screwed and screwed royally…..

  • Steve

    I’d bet these are the same liberal fascist fuckwads who complain that nobody wants to open a business in the ‘hood. Think they’re just mad that a white guy owns it? Bet that within 6 months a “disadvantaged business owner” re-opens the restaurant in the same building with government mony.

  • Ummah Gummah

    @Steve

    That might be worth keeping an eye on for anyone who doesn’t live too far from there.

    And a follow-up post on MB, of course.
