Default Our government is out to save us. Yeah, right.

I suggest everyone read this thread on another forum, and send in their own e-mail to the government. This shows just how stupid our government really is.

Hi Mike,

I saw that a few weeks ago and stand amazed at the dumb extremes that take place in today's world.

Mike, I agree with you completely. We have learned the hard way that there needs to be government regulation in order to reign in the greed of many of the big bucks business higher executives at the expense of the workers who produce the products or provide the services, and the consumers who pay for the products and services and now the taxpayers and our descendents. But the provisions of this law go way too far. While safety of children is and should be a primary concern, private individuals building and finishing toys, cabinets, etc. should not be criminalized.

I have long been involved in issues subject to government regulation and have long thought that the efficacy of the regulations should be subject to the same requirements as the things they regulate. Some things, such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium contamination, melamine in food, etc. are generally recognized as dangerous and so should be regulated and treated as "Generally Recognized As Hazardous" or "Generally Recognized As Dangeorus" (GRAH or GRAD to parallel GRAS?)

Due to the popularity of liberalism (which is killing us), we are plunging deeper and deeper into the "Big Brother Society". It seems that our government thinks that we, as citizens, are too stupid to take care of ourselves. If it keeps going like this we will soon have to have a permit from the government to take our next breath.
