About the Problem of Over-Regulation… by The Elephant's Child

If you watched the SuperBowl, you may have seen this, but it’s too good to allow it to fade in the memory. Sometimes serious subjects are best dealt with mockery and humor.  We have a government intent upon regulating. The old quote from World War II is attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892-1984) and is a reminder…

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews, I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

You are recycling and using twisty lightbulbs aren’t you?
