Dan Quayle headed a group of examiners when he was VP. They reviewed new regulations. They blocked any that could not show they had an overall positive effect.

Most of the rules they checked did not pass muster.

Then the rules are handed over to enforcement groups, again mostly people with little or no real world experience in the field, to enforce. And how we have another bunch of regulations to comply with, most of which have no positive effect on life.

But a more disturbing point to me is the headline of this editorial. This is the US, the land of the free. The idea that it takes courage to disagree with some bureaucrat is a frightening thing. When did we turn into the Soviet Union?

Some group of Congressional staffers get together with some pressure groups, of whatever flavor, and write a law covering some part of our lives. Their bosses pass it, usually with little or no serious examination. Remember "we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it"?

The law is handed over to one or more agencies with buildings full of rules writers, who are next to impossible to fire for bad work, and who rarely have any real experience in the fields being governed.

braintransplant, you are the a******e. By the way, I typed it out, didn't let the censor bleep me. Forcing some bureaucrat to face the fact there are limits to their power is a very good thing. Embarrassing them in public is even better.

How come the NR can print the word, "h******e", but the readers can't.
