I guess, but it'd seem to me that the $25k bond would be enough to do
that for the average Joe...
If the barrier to entry is as high as I think it is, though, it makes my
job practically useless. It'd mean that before doing anything I'd have
to ensure that I have a contractor available that is so licensed, and
what about the situation where I am working on something and then
realize that I need to collect data and such in this way? Then I have
to stop and call someone else---which is not only very expensive, but my
hands have then provided "taint" because I don't have "credential".
A man who reasons deliberately, manages it better after studying Logic
than he could before, if he is sincere about it and has common sense.
