Government Control Is Not the Answer

If you are an AirBNB host you know that Los Angeles is trying to outlaw AirBNB.  Is government control really the answer for this?

Maybe if California wasn’t so absurd with the tenant landlord laws giving all the rights to the tenants and leaving the landlords left for dead people wouldn’t want to do AirBNB as much!

How did California get so messed up?  Why is our government so messed up compared to other states?
