I feel an urge towards witticism-so here it goes--
From the February 7, 2011 edition of the National Review--
" Pres. Barack Obama, whose signature achievement in office has been dropping a 1,000-page package of regulations onto the American health-care market, has now decided that there are too many federal regulations, and, with an eye on job growth, has ordered regulators to study the problem. There is a kind of genius at work in that: The regulators already are regulated under regulations derived from the Regulatory Flexibility Act, which requires that regulators, before regulating, study a proposed regulation's impact on small business. To that regulator-regulating regulation, President Obama has added an additional regulation, stipulating that regulators "reduce regulatory burdens on small business." What obviously is needed here are additional regulators to regulate the enforcement of the regulator-regulating regulations, which is to say, regulator-regulating-regulation-regulator regulators. Who says Obama doesn't know how to create jobs?"
If there's anyone out there who believes we can't cut very much waste from the Federal Government, I suggest you read "National Suicide" by Martin Gross. This interesting little tome will make you lose your lunch, or at least get you thinking about a personal preferred method of oxygen/CO2 removal.
Wit--a terrible thing to waste!
