commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

With the Democrats back in power….Rules and Regulations are back…..

The days of Republicans and laissez faire are behind us…..

When things go wrong these days….

New rules are done…..

Never mind that there isn’t enough people to enforce the old ones….

Not that law enforcement is gonna actually do that…

Damn if people followed EVERY rule …Nothing would get done!

(Actually….most rules are there so when you mess up they can come and take you away, right? )

And things have gotten sideways a lot these days, huh?

There will crys from those effected that there is cost involved in these enforcement actions…..

But The people who enforce the laws have never ran those businesses…..

People shouldn’t get too crazy….

The natural rhythm of politics will kick in…..

Obama will get another term and Congress will  split between the parties the money for enforcement will die…Congress will resend the rules…and more ever….the enforceers will meet resistance from the lawyers, politicos and the amount of work….

It always works this way…..

Wait and see………

Over the last year, the Obama administration has pressed forward on hundreds of new mandates, while also stepping up enforcement of rules by increasing the ranks of inspectors and imposing higher fines for violations.

A new age of regulation is well under way in Washington, a fact somewhat obscured by the high-profile debates over the health care overhaul and financial oversight system and by fresh calls for greater federal vigilance spurred by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the deaths of coal miners in West Virginia.

The surge in rule-making has resulted from an unusual confluence of factors, from repeated outbreaks of food-borne illnesses to workplace disasters. Some industry groups, wanting foreign competitors to adhere to the same standards they must meet, have backed new federal mandates. The push for some of the measures began at the end of the Bush administration, a tacit acknowledgment that its deregulatory agenda had gone too far.

Still, the new aggressiveness reflects the new cops on the beat, and the contrast with the Bush administration is an intentionally sharp one. While the Bush administration mostly favored voluntary compliance by industry, senior Obama administration officials argue that carefully crafted regulation can be a positive force……..

  1. It’s refreshing and encouraging to see some responsible governing underway. It would be even better if the American people had any idea of it. Instead we’re drowning in bread and circuses. No reason though, for the administration to stop doing it right!

      Which they won. Again. And somehow you’re saying people are unaware that they elected Democrats?
