    That is true but I think wrongful death and other lawsuits have a greater effect than regulation.
    Sure lawsuits are a reactive form of correction but they have a longer lasting effect.

    Depends on what "cheaper" you're talking about.

    Short term, no doubt it's cheaper.
    Long term, you're gonna go out of business and most likely be in debt if you handle meat improperly.

    You have to remember to though, that as food has become more abundant, personal attitudes towards cleanliness have increased.
    Before just getting food was important, people would eat rotted meat.
    That's all they had.

    Now with modern commercial farming techniques, the consumer is more mindful over the cleanliness of it.
    Personal choice of quality of quantity.
    An example, hardly anyone eats Pemmican anymore.

    My stance is this, before we enact any new regulation, we need to stop and see where the real short falls were and are.
    The banking collapse and subsequent Ponzi schemes were largely a move of lax law enforcement, crony relationships and irrational exuberance.
    We need to deal with that before we add new rules.

    OSHA is a relatively new agency.
    Even before it's inception work place accidents were on a clear downward trend.
    A lot of people believe that the company is the major offender in workplace accidents and injuries.
    In fact the opposite is true, unsafe acts by employees compromise approximately 80% of all accidents.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Boehner thinks the federal government should stop regulating for a year, basically. A curious proposal during a time where his party is in the minority. Is there anyone who still claims the GOP is not the "Party of No?" Boehner is proposing that "No" become official federal policy!

    Do you think he would do the same during a time where the GOP controls both houses?

    Would he also give up his salary during this period where his job is no longer necessary?
    I think Boener is a raging idiot who lacks the common sense and basic IQ score to be in politics. It's time for him to be removed from the GOP and from politics.

    And the government is the ones to cure all our ails and would never harm anyone? I'll take my chances with the free market, friend.

    It was government interference that cause the recession.

    What government regulation would have prevented the human error that cause the Deepwater Horizon blowout?

    Did it ever occur to you that there are some options between "total direct government control" and "total anarchy?"

    Yes, it has occured to me. Krewe Obama seems to be heading hard-n-fast towards, "total government control".

    Never let a good crisis go to waste, huh?

    So you're unable to see a difference between stricter regulation and a total takeover. It seems your answer to the question should have been "Nope."

    Obviously, you're unable to see that at some point, there's no difference between stricter regulation and a total takeover.

    Who owns GM, now? Who is putting hundreds of thousands of oilfield hands out of work? Who is putting no telling how many tobacco undustry workers out of work? Who passed CSA 2010, that's going to put thousands of truck drivers out of work? How many Democrat regulations don't put people out of work and kill small businesses?

    Too bad the Republicans aren't able to say no, more often.

    I'm thinking we will in about 170 days.
