    Re: "I also wonder if a lot of these regulations were prompted by good intentions . . . ."

    It's more likely they were prompted, not by good intentions, but by the hubris and bravado of liberal bureaucrats and policy makers, showing off to their political base by "making an example" of those they consider neanderthals and philistines. People beneath their self-righteous contempt.

    You know -- real people.

    It's what bureaucrats do add regulations. 22,000 under Obama

    I laud Senators Hatch and Lee for taking this action. I also wonder if a lot of these regulations were prompted by good intentions without any regard to carefully considering if they were too broad or over-reaching with unintended consequence. A current example is the 'implied consent' law that prompted ex- Sgt Payne's egregious action against nurse Wubble.
