    Cut to 10 hours if you want. When people get pizzas to their homes cold and refuse the product, those customers will pick up their phones and call the competition and find someone that will deliver what they want.

    I'm sorry. Don't know what you are talking about. I don't watch Fox News.
    What you fail to realize is, when there are more regulation it raises cost for everyone. Competition does not drive down the cost of new costly regulations.. Thus you wonder why so many of our companies have outsourced to other countries that favor businesses not wanting to strangle them with costly regulations. If you do business here you are heavily regulated, move out of country to a less regulated country lowers cost. Pretty simple.

    You say it's called adjusting to the cost of business, yep that's right, and that is exactly why we're not competitive in the world market. Yeah we all adjust to the higher cost, so now a bottle of milk cost $20, now tell me who in the world can we export our milk to for $20 a bottle? Or any product for that matter because everything we have cost higher to make than anyplace else in the world, which further increases our trade imbalance because we are exporting nothing and importing everything. Yeah lets just make everything more expensive because liberal Obama and clan wants it that way.

    Yes, that's why most of Corporate America loves the Republocrats. One likes to tax competition away, the other likes to regulate it away; the result is the same. Entanglement of corporations into the government, the rise of the Corporate State, rise of the Aristocracy, and death to the Free Market.

    An early 90s Aston Martin would make a nice touring car.

    If you wanna go fast, for relatively cheap, get yourself an 87 buick Grand National. Comfort and speed, and even OK fuel Econ.
    a motorcycle; speed/acceleration is about HP/weight. Parking is much less of a problem too. If you live in a bad climate for a MC then move.

    Costs? You want to talk costs? OK. Why is it that a CT scan at Los Alamitos Medical Center lists a CT scan of the abdomen on a state website for $4,423.00 and Blue Shield says its negotiated rate at the hospital is about $2,400. And the Los Angeles Times asked for a cash price and was told it was $250.00? What happened to the Medical Center's needed cost of $4173.00? Did it go in to a black hole? A clerical error? What would happen to Blue Cross if it doesn't get it's $2150.00, and even if they got that what would they do with all of that--use every penny for administrative costs? Yeah right.

    $20.00 milk? You would not have to worry about exporting it because the folks in this country would not have enough money to pay for it here. All of that profit is going to stockholders and not to working folks, so maybe we can have those rich folks go out and buy what they made, and if they don't want to pay for that milk, than they can pour it down the drain and take it off their taxes. And supply economics just keeps on making that all-important circuit to nowhere.

    Guess who will pay for these new rules and regs?

    You... suckers!
    The cost gets passed onto middle America.
    It will cost jobs too. ROTFLOL... ignorant is as ignorant does.

    The rich? LOL... this will bother them like a fart in a hurricane.
    Is this it? You are complaining about the government making regulations? Sorry if you want a world without standards, but you are just going to have to live with it. I don't even see any reason to argue with such a vague rant. It is amazing how you will whine about rules here, but have a woman want to get an abortion or a gay couple want to get married and then you are all for these costly regulations you say are so evil. Really, you should give it up. This is too obvious. This is just sour grapes over losing the election. Thanks for the tears, but it is not going to stop it from happening. Actually we might do more just so we can see you cry a little bit more while the world gets better.

    I would cut the black box... or... never buy a car that has one of those putrid devices. Which means never buying a new car. I'll buy big 'ol gas guzzling rigs that a mechanic can fix, and some stylish Euro sport cars. An Alfa Sud for tearing around back roads, an older Ferrari for mid length Interstate stretches, and an early 70's 450 SL. Something that classifies as an old timer and they can't put a black box in.
    In aviation, black boxes have been a tremendous help in investigating crashes and improving safety as a result.

    So, does anybody have a particular regulation they have a particular problem with.
    Great post!!

    It really seems like the OP didn't read his own article.

    Randy Rabinowitz, director of regulatory policy at OMB Watch, a private group that tracks federal rules, said regulations now being released are long overdue - in some cases months or even years after federal guidelines say they should have been published.
    If anything, the GOP / TP have been successful in delaying the implementation of regs that were already supposed to be in place.

    SCOTUS ruled on the EPA and CO2 back in 2007 (I think) and we still haven't seen the strict crack down on polluters.

    This AP story seems to be more about the GOP's attempt to paint another false picture about what the executive branch does. Many times, their departments are following the law -- you know, the law already voted on and approved by the legislative branch.

    This is a whole lotta GOP propaganda put out there to make their political benefactors feel better about campaign contributions.
