The book is not as good as the title, but "Three Felonies A Day" is still an eye-opener. It is well past the point where any one person can know all of the laws and regulations which apply to them. That seems to be another constitutional challenge waiting to happen. It may be past the point where on person could live long enough to read all of the laws and regulations once!

The regulators do not understand that fewer and much smaller regulations would dramatically increase compliance. Unlike those of us who are businessmen, and have to produce a good product at a good price and reach a market, they just churn and churn, not having their pay go up or down based on the results.
