    According to the Heritage Foundation's "Morning Bell" this morning, here are their pick for the ten worst regulations of 2012. I am going to guess that some can find some additional ones to suggest for the list. But some of these are pretty amazing.

    I do expect some of our members will agree with the list; some will opt for a different list, and some will take exception to any of these regulations being criticized.

    How much regulation do you want the federal government to impose? How much of your personal choices, options, and lifestyle do you think is appropriate to be regulated?

    But just for one example, do ANY of you think the state or federal government should regulate the size of soft drinks people are allowed to buy?

    And the road to complete socialism continues through the micromanaging of our lives. Where are the so-called conservatives in government fighting back again Nanny government?

    The conservatives in government do fight against these ridiculous laws, rules, and regs, but unfortunately they are in too short a supply in both major parties. And also I think too few of us are paying attention and letting our elected representatives know what we think about this stuff.

    I like the way the EPA requires Ethanol in fuel which damages cylinder walls and ignition systems lowering fuel economy yet requiring higher standards at the same time.

    Proof positive that the government finds ways to screw up a wet-dream on a regular basis.
