If I had a way to become "the person in charge" here in the U.S. I'd take a big Machete to all the stupid rules and regulation, and to the budget. I'd be so busy lopping off unconstitutional programs and agencies that I'd need an alarm clock to tell me when to eat.

That is, if you can find a budget, which we did not see in four years.

I believe in the First Amendment, so I would never support legislation to restrict political speech or curtail the ability of people to petition the government.

That being said, I despise the corrupt Washington game of obtaining unearned wealth thanks to the sleazy interaction of lobbyists, politicians, bureaucrats, and interest groups.

So you can imagine my unfettered joy when reading about how this odious process is being curtailed by sequestration. Here are some cheerful details from story in Roll Call.

…sequester cuts…reflect not only Washington’s political paralysis but a bitter lobbying failure for K Street interests across the board....
