    With one of the major US political parties believing that we still have too much regulation, even after 30 years of eliminating and/or not enforcing what we had, expect it to get much, much worse before it gets better. The game is rigged. The modern corporate culture is such that upper management gets rich and everything else be damned.

    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    Lets keep the poltics out of this. But as a parting note read this http://www.politifact.com/virginia/s...containing-re/

    This is just the list of changes, not the laws themselves. If you run a business you need to keep up with these changes. It is not limited to any one party and it is killing the country.

    25 years or so ago I subscribed to the Federal Register and from what I have read from the above, not much has changed. It documents every change. or whim, as the wind blows and most just check the section that pertains to their business interest. In my spare time I would check other areas and get completely lost in what the hell is going on. Every section has it's expertise and to look at the whole can be very confusing.

    Reminds me of my first trip to DC and on the cab ride in from National (before Regan National) I looked at the beautiful old buildings and remarked that this is the biggest bureaucracy in the world...and it was impressive.

    I guess my point is...the bureaucracy will keep rolling on, regardless of which party is in power, and there is not much we can do about it. Keep a sense of humor and vote your best.

    P.S. Don't drink and type

    Best,
    Jim

    Wow, closed at 47¢ a share, this is going from bad to worse....fast...

    Just ordered enough Tmax developer to cover my film needs. It's anyone's guess if the film part of Kodak will survive this or not...
