Burke and Washington Comment on Govt/CPSIA

Good #CPSIA quotes:
"People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous." -- Edmund Burke

If Congress doesn't hurry up and fix CPSIA, that's going to happen more and more -- intentionally by some and inadvertently by others. Considering the CPSC's reluctance to enforce this bad law, and to follow it, in some cases -- this is becoming a nightmare for those of us who believe in "the Rule of Law".

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." -- George Washington

Washington said it so well over 200 years ago. CPSIA is clearly an example of government's irresponsible action. There is no reason in it, and no eloquence. It is fire, and it is force.
