When the people are corrupt liars, thieves and (if We The People could file charges) criminals that are making these laws, what can you expect. Sure, go ahead and hire the pedophile to be the recess watchman at the elementary school....hire the man who stole billions from his employer, or hire the murderer or rapist....feel secure that the government is behind all of them and that you have nothing to fear. If we dealt with crime as it should be dealth with, the pedophiles and murders would be extinct .... it is called death sentences, and the rapists would never, ever see the light of day. Why should we feed/clothe these people? We're broke, let's save some real money. If they act like an animal, treat them as such.

As an economist with a boring personality (sorry to be redundant), I sometimes focus on numbers. And when contemplating the cost of regulation and red tape, there are some numbers that should frighten all of us.
