    This guy better tread carefully, Utah hates whistle blowers and puts them in jail if fraud is exposed. I think Utah passed a law that made whistle blowing illegal and criminal act, especially if its aimed at state government and its departments. It seems that all state departments involve personal information exposure therefore violates the privacy act of 1974 on personal information.

    However the states violates the same law by stockpiling personal and confidential information on every one in the state, excetp illegal aliens who don't have and traceable identity but full entitlements by laws authorized by spoils of war occupation.

    There ought to be a law is contradictory to freedoms, but this country has become so corrupted that laws, justice, law and order, and rule of law are treated with contempt.

    The only logical solution is a revolt, uprising, civil war against government. The time has come in the US that governmrnt be called to accountability by armed force of militia citizens. The economy is so corrupted and baseless that an uprising can only hurt government fraud and its expansion and attempted overthrow of our Constitution and rights.

    Earnest, what Madoff did was already against the law. What regulation would have prevented it? The fact is, any business can operate illegally until they're big enough to get caught. More regulations would do nothing in this case, as in most cases.

    That's like saying after a bank robber successfully robs a bank, "we need a regulation." Well, we've already got laws against people robbing banks, but some people still rob banks.

    My dad always told me: "the six most dangerous words to our freedom are: 'there ought to be a law'"

    Human and corporate greed are some of the worst things about this country.
    This is why we need regulation. The moment a business or person can get an advantage even if it's dishonest, they'll do it.
