libs here keep asking the same question over and over again: "What regulations has Obama put on the economy that slow it down?" We've seen some progress in their thinking lately as some of them have begun to acknowledge that Obamacare exists.

But there's a lot more in the hopper than just that one:

In recent weeks, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed rules to update water quality guidelines for beaches and other recreational waters and deal with runoff from logging roads. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meanwhile, has proposed long-delayed regulations requiring auto makers to include event data recorders — better known as "black boxes" — in all new cars and light trucks beginning in 2014.

What's the harm in this? Everybody knows that there will be no cost to develop black boxes and put them in cars. And everybody knows that there's no possible way for a black box to monitor your driving habits and report the data out to somebody. What's not to love here? The federal government has every right to this data because it needs to know where you go and what your habits are.

LOL @ PA libs.
