"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take thisanymore!" Ever since these words were shouted by fictional TVanchor Howard Beale in the 1976 movie classic Network,millions of us have shared the sentiment. Maybe some of you evendid what Beale suggested and shared your anger. I know I wrotethose very words in this space several years ago.

I hate being repetitive, but in this case, I AM mad as hell andI'm NOT going to take this anymore. And you should all bejoining me in my outrage. Why am I so mad? Well, I'm angry onyour behalf. There are so many empty words and promises beinguttered in support of entrepreneurs that it's hard to keeptrack. Politicians (from both parties) regularly proclaim howimportant you are to the economy, how vital you are to thenation's future and how they always have your best interests inmind.

Sounds great, right? It would be, if it were true. Butunfortunately, too much of what's promised will never bedelivered. That should make you mad.
