Our lives are governed by millions of laws, rules and regulations and more are being piled on all the time. In fact, 40,000 new laws just went into effect in January.

Every single new law restricts your freedom just a little bit more. The truth is that America has become a crazy control freak nation where virtually everything that we do is highly regulated. You have probably broken multiple laws today that you don’t even know exist.

We have all become criminals and lawbreakers because almost everything is illegal at this point. .....

Ok, let's not get crazy here. It's a grab bag.

From the NBC link in this article:

including a Social Security increase amounting to $450 a year for the average recipients

Eight states will raise the minimum wage,

A California law will add gays and lesbians and people with disabilities to the list of social and ethnic groups whose contributions must be taught in history lessons in public schools. The law also bans teaching materials that reflect poorly on gays or particular religions.

And then there are the sucky ones.

But bankrupting a nation is legal?
