Maybe they'll do something about blocking land to camping too.

What isn't discussed is the 7,500 regulations.

Elimination of regulations is a positive when you consider that those regulations reason for existing is to reduce your ability to use and enjoy your land.
Celebrate it.

Very seldom do regulations expand on personal freedoms.
Very often they restrict them.
That alone says much about it.

Yes, a "free country" as long as you abide by the rules and regulations, and restrictions.

However, having traveled much of this world, there is NO other country where I'd rather live. [emoticon]

Regulations are usually done because people abuse things. Maybe not you, and not everybody, just the few who ruin it for all of us.

I look to blame ourselves first rather than bureaucrats.

They aren't done just to give a bureaucrat a job or impinge on your freedoms.


There I differ with you greatly, I believe many do exist solely to maintain a job for a petty beauracrat who wants to appear to be doing something meaningful.
Many are nothing more than pandering to special interest groups who wave a little money at whatever politician needs to look toward reelection next. When they come from agencies instead of politicians, one must ask who is running the agency? Ag for example looking at moving to farm country instead of being a DC swamp denizen is a perfect example, the agriculture dept can best be run by the folks that have a lifetime of involvement in it, not by the recent college grad from a major city that never in their life saw corn that wasn't in a can.

"the recent college grad from a major city that never in their life saw corn that wasn't in a can."

Come now, that isn't true. Lots of them have seen corn in a freezer bag....heh.

But IMO regulations frequently exist so that regulators have something to do with their time. And of course many enjoy the power game. I have had close contact with USEPA and FLDEP, in my career as a Environmental Lab Tech Director, and did not come away favorably impressed.

Hearing tales about needing a $600,000 environmental and archeological study in order to run some new water lines to a park restroom make my point. This was in an old CCC campground that has been in use for almost 80 years. Seems like any problems would have been noticed by this point. But those who live by the rule book lack all common sense. Which despite Einstein's opinion makes the world work.

I like clean air and water and the regulations that used to prohibit those who would plunder and pollute for their own greedy purposes from doing as they please.

When the last tree is cut down and the last bit of drinkable water is poisoned and there's nowhere for your children and grandchildren to visit that hasn't been destroyed with industrialization you'll have nothing left to do but eat your petroleum and fossil fuel.

Capitalism works best for everyone only when it's well regulated.
