    I would think maybe an HOUR of training would be enough to handle that safety risk.

    Google Dallas Pension. This is what happens over and over and over and over.... when you let sharks babysit your wealth, allow them to regulate themselves, vote yourselves into the palms of your economic betters.

    I'm so nauseated by the never-ending capacity of American idiots to vote against their own economic interests, I don't even have words anymore. HOW BAD DOES IT HAVE TO GET? Before people will wake up and realize they're literally giving away their freedom one dollar at a time? I really, really do not get it.
    What should be deregulated?

    I guess it shouldn't surprise me, but it still does.

    The thread title and the first sentence of the OP are sarcastic. Their blatant stupidity I hoped would make that clear enough.
    Thanks from StanStill

    Well, I guess by now we've beaten it to death by not getting it. Sorry about that.

    Poe's law is an Internet adage that states that, without a clear indicator of the author's intent, it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers or viewers as a sincere expression of the parodied views.[1][2][3]

    The original statement of the adage, by Nathan Poe, was:[1]

    Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is uttrerly [sic] impossible to parody a Creationist in such a way that someone won't mistake for the genuine article.

    It’s not too much regulation that is the problem, it is denial and delusion about what the hell is going on and who is ripping off whom, WITHOUT accountability. Bernie Madoff should be a PRIME example of what has happened to America……The “greed is good” generation of con artists have been pulling the wool over too many American’s eyes for too long and there is too large a segment of Americans who fall for the same snake oil sales job, time and time again.

    Some people in this nation get investigated up one side and down the other, are found to have done nothing seriously wrong, and still believed to be guilty of some crime. Others can do everything short of admitting to a crime they have done or deny something they said earlier, have it all caught on video and still NOT even be investigated, much less questioned by the same people that call for locking their opposition up, for doing less.

    What may be hurting big business is the people not buying American made products. It could also be that since 1980 wages have gone to hell in a handbasket, thank you saint ronnie. Americans do not buy a lot of things they used to. I mean I still use a computer that I bought in 1998 with windows XP. Works great and it is paid for. Haven't bought a new vehicle in over 16 years.

    There are, however, people who do believe there is "too much regulation," but none of them can articulate how to determine the appropriate number of regulations, or how they should be apportioned.

    And yet there is no training for those who work with sodium hydroxide or Ammonium nitrate.
