Snakes in the Grass

They only start out small…

Hybrid super snakes plague more than just the Everglades.  The serpents have evolved and migrated all the way to D.C.  Government control has woven itself around almost every aspect of our lives and our economy.  Regulation is going to strangle this country to death, as it squeezes tighter with every piece of newly passed legislation.  It’s already grown bigger than the legislators who think they can control it, and the charmers should realize it may turn on them when it has a new master.  If it doesn’t get put back in its cage by November of 2012, it will swallow us whole.

Insider Legislating

Washington insiders create the plumbing framework behind the scenes and then use legislation to turn on the water.  To adjust the faucet they pass laws, use regulation, and award government contracts.   They manipulate the tax code and federal spending, put provisions on health care, and now we have the epitome of government serving self-interest in the cap-and-trade legislation.  Those in power are financially investing in the agenda, influencing the outcome, and will soon be collecting the money that comes flowing in if it passes.  While the rest of the country is facing a drought, the government is threatening to crimp the hose.  Washington wanting to regulate Wall St. is simply the accusation of a guilty conscience, or maybe corruption just doesn’t like competition.
