Got a link to this, because it's supposed to demonstrate how much Obama is meddling in the economy, or something. Honestly, all this website makes me think is the administration is doing a good job of reviewing regulations, having it open to the public, seeking comments, and that there's more than several changes that include getting rid of certain rules or expanding exemptions, or just implementing current law.

Anyways, just found this to be a rather interesting view inside the governmental process.

What a useless website. It's like posting court proceedings; this stuff is legalese, so what are we supposed to take away from it?

That's the public gets to respond. Was reading one, and it said it was revising its proposed changes due to public feedback from the relevant industry. I admit a lot of it didn't make sense to me, but that doesn't mean it's incoherent to everyone. It's an unfiltered look at the government, without the media telling you what's going on.

Erm, I mean, that Obama is a dirty socialist

Picked one at random, which was an airworthiness directive regarding certain models of Hueys.  Actually pretty interesting.  Seems that some main rotor assemblies suffer from a metal fatigue which has caused a few of them to FLY THE FUCK OFF THE AIRCRAFT!  They're ordering a physical inspection of the rotor plates every 25 hours of time in service to see if the rotors are fixing to fall off.  Now, I can certainly see how this is a mixed bag.  Flight service companies have just got a new hour of billable time handed to them on a silver platter.  Cost of operation goes up another $5/hr.  But at the same time, you don't let people drive around in cars without working brakes, and you shouldn't let people fly dodgy aircraft.  Basically, a rule like this is something for one side to bitch about, while completely ignoring the fact that their side would have done the exact same thing because it's common sense to do so. 
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

And save someone a potential future lawsuit, which would probably be at least just as expensive.
