The Venn diagram in which the whole set is "regulations" has sub sets.

One subset is "regulations bought and paid for by a special interest group at the expense of the suffering of others".


Actually that is all of them; that's the whole set.



How about a subset "regulations intended to improve things for those with less power who are habitually treated badly by those with more power" and another,  "regulations designed to entrench the power of the powerful"?

Some of us will not allow the possibility that industry groups shape government policy.

Those rich capitalists must be angels. When they spend billions lobbying government, it's to shape policy in the public interest.

Shocked

C'mon, you cynical bastard.


If they are rich, they must have been doing things that people wanted.

People only make rational decisions.

It's immoral to interfere with rational market decisions.

Therefore,  any regulations that upset the rich are bad.

I might go part of the way with you if the incomes of the rich were earned in a completely competitive fashion, but, my suspicion would be immediately raised the moment these private actors begin to set their sights on political policy.

You're being ridiculous.

The rich are saintly.

Must be. Otherwise those lobbying efforts might not be in the common good.

Your own Wiki link shows China’s child mortality is more than double that of the US.

I'm fine where I am. I love America. However, you don't like America, so it's you that should leave.

No blacks will buy that cap.  Look at the bill! It's all curved like normal people wear. The bill of the hat is supposed to be flat with a shiny goofy looking sticker in the middle of it.

No self respecting thug would be without his sticker!

I read the charts.  I guess one chart makes all others invalid in Rabbit’s world.  Now are you going to admit that you original comment was asinine or are you going to continue with stupid
