    Sorry, but the regulations you're so afraid of aren't there to protect me from myself. They're there to protect me from the morans driving 150 mph because they don't see a cop or the company that hopes it can use that moldy bag of peanuts in the next batch of peanut butter.

    Spite is the ranch dressing Republicans slather on their salad of racism

    •  Where did I say I don't like regulations? (0+ / 0-)

      You're using regulations in the wrong way.  You give examples of regulations that are there to protect the public.

      But how are you personally harmed by someone going for a hike in a national park without a park ranger present?  How does that pollute your ground water or poison your food?

      Why do you insist on regulating the actions of others when it doesn't affect you?
