Regulators R Us: Feds Crank Up Regulations on Everything
http://www.thenewamerican.com/economy/sectors/item/13665-regulators-r-us-feds-crank-up-regs-on-everything ^

Get set for the Obama administration’s post-election tsunami of business-killing, job-killing, economy-killing federal regulations. It’s already begun. Take a look at www.regulations.gov, the administration’s regulatory website. The home page informs us that in the last 90 days, the administration has posted 5,934 new regulations.

Yes, our federal bureaucrats have been very diligent. The above-mentioned website informs us of their daily productivity of regulations over the past 90 days:

Today (121)

Last 3 Days (274)

Last 7 Days (371)

Last 15 Days (826)

Last 30 Days (1,915)

Last 90 Days (5,934)

How will these regulations affect you, your family, your job, business, ranch, or farm? You may not have federal SWAT teams descend upon you, as has happened to dairy farmers and natural food store operators who dared to sell raw milk products not approved by the federal Food & Drug Administration (see here and here) or the hundreds of other Americans subjected to Gestapo-type treatment for running afoul of the volumes of murky and convoluted regulations that fill the 169,301 pages of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) published in the Federal Register. However, even if your home, farm or business is not personally “visited” by agents of the FDA, EPA, OSHA, SEC, or any of the myriad other federal agencies, you will pay a huge price nonetheless, both in economic costs and in loss of freedoms.

A cost analysis by the Small Business Administration in 2008 found that the cost to our national economy of compliance with federal regulations was an astronomical $1.75 trillion!

Perhaps the demise of the Hostess Twinkie and Ding-dongs would be inevitable as government food police and nitwits like Mayor Bloomberg would soon be banning or taxing them out of existence anyway.

Federal Regulation 3.145.56.A prohibits any public commentary on Federal Regulations. Time to lawyer up, pal.

The transforming of America will begin in earnest on January first. For those of us who are AMERICANS we know what’s coming and for those who seek something better than capitalism enjoy! Its easy to look forward to new beginings when are ignorant and arrogant of history and you are confortable living in a capitalist mold. Things will change when you are froced into a new mold,a new and improved American transformation, no job, no money, no home, no food, no promise of a future for your children. Welcome to the new world order where all is equal... equally poor and destitute, enjoy. For all those who refused to see the light enjoy the darkness

Dr. Ferris smiled. . . . . .”We’ve waited a long time to get something on you. You honest men are such a problem and such a headache. But we knew you’d slip sooner or later - and this is just what we wanted.”

“You seem to be pleased about it.”

“Don’t I have good reason to be?”

“But, after all, I did break one of your laws.”

“Well, what do you think they’re for?”

Dr. Ferris did not notice the sudden look on Rearden’s face, the look of a man hit by the first vision of that which he had sought to see. Dr. Ferris was past the stage of seeing; he was intent upon delivering the last blows to an animal caught in a trap.

“Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against - then you’ll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We’re after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you’d better get wise to it. There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

Beginning on page 411 of the 35th Anniversary Edition of Atlas Shrugged

Three Felonies A Day An interesting book by a lawyer.

The reality is that at any time they want they can arrest you and put you in prison because there are so many federal regulations that will have violated at least 3 on any given day.

Innocent people cannot be controlled, so make every action illegal.

I just ate a Hostess cupcake. I haven’t had one of those in at least 25 years. I wanted Twinkies, but they are all sold out in my county. Safeway said their shelves were empty within an hour of opening.... same with Walmart. Crazy.

Things are falling apart faster then many may have dreamed possible. I as most of us feel so bad as to what we wanted our children and grand children to have. Of course many here, with honest hearts and minds, wonder, can things be turned around before images of the poor slobs in Greece with all their high hopes they would live easy lives, and be given so much other parts of the world have to work hard at attaining, come to past. Blowing up their cities and roaming about in total despair, the gig is up for them. The Germans cannot be held to holding up the whole failed socialist European experiment, with all it's evil tapestry.

Who I might asked the Commies now sitting in the White House, who do they think will sustain America. Not that they give a damn shit. They want it to collapse.

Congress has completely abdicated its responsibility. It has allowed executive branch agencies to get away with usurping powers for so long that it has become an accepted practice.

We are stetting up for a dictatorship.

Agreed. One day, we can all move south and hit the restart button.
