Are You A Criminal? How Can You Be Sure?
    #354010 - 07/13/01 03:44 AM (16 years, 7 months ago)

In the Tyranny of Good Intentions, Paul Craig Roberts and Lawrence M. Stratton write:
"The U.S. Code, which contains all federal statues, occupies 56,009 single spaced pages. It's volumes take up nine feet of shelf space. An annotated version, which attempts to bring order out of chaos, has 230 hardcover volumes and 36 paperback supplements. Administrative lawmaking under statues fill up the 207 volume Code of Federal Regulations, which spans 21 feet of shelf space and contains more than 134,488 pages of regulatory law. Federal law is further augmented by more than 2,756 volumes of judicial precedent, taking up 160 yards of law library shelving."
And you're certain you're not breaking the laws?
During the Clinton years alone, as James Bovard noted in Feeling Your Pain, "Federal agencies issued more than 25,000 new regulations-criminalizing everything from toilets to snuff advertisments on race cars." And Bovard wrote that before Clinton's final year in office, the federal government issued more than 100,000 pages of new regulations.
That's just federal. Let's not even mention the states.
Still think you're not a criminal??

Ignorance is not an excuse of course, because apparently you *should* know Right from Wrong. :p
