    More government regulation.... Is this really what the country needs right now? I know it has good intentions but if these companies have to close is it really a good thing?

    Is Feb. 10 financial doomsday for thousands?

    Yes this is ridiculous. China can send crap into the US and our small business are forced to pay the cost. Dumb.

    Just as stupid as requiring all car manufacturers to add expensive valve stems that run up the cost of cars.

    Dumb, dumb dumb. Yet don't tax or regulate the bankers, credit card companies and the corporates that strip the wealth of the nation to the bone.

    Are you really stupid enough to think that every regulation is the same?

    I doubt it.

    Some regulations undoubtably are unwise.

    Some are absolutely essantial.

    Deciding which is which, requires that we understand their purpose and the probable outcomes and costs of putting them in place.

    This looks like a dumb idea, to me.

    Not as dumb as allowing those items to come into this nation without first testing them, of course, (that would be a case of dumbness by NON regulation, now, isn't it?) but dumb it appears nevertheless.

    Why do we care about this nonsense, anyway? I grew up in a lead-based paint house. Hell, I had toy soldiers that were not only painted in lead paint, they WERE LEAD toys!!!! Consumer protection laws are an absolute joke, the product of Ambulance chasing personal injury lawyer scum...

    No, we have just witnessed eight years of failed protection of our nation, failed wars, and economic debacle. And it was done by liberals, but by the people that you support.
