For most people who never work with federal agencies and departments, ignorance is bliss. But for those who do, they know that the nasty little secret about the federal government has to do with lawmaking by regulation.
Via Codrea, I listened to Gottlieb on the Guntalk podcast yesterday as he explained his brilliant strategy for beating Schumer and company at their own game. He was very pleased with himself, in the manner of a fourth-grader who’s come up with this unbreakable code wherein you substitute “1” for “A,”, “2 for “B,” etc. If I didn’t know he’s been around for a long time and should really be smarter than he sounded, I’d have taken him for that schoolboy. Only a naive fool tries to beat the devil with his own dice.
No means no. If the lawmongers get their way, this situation calls for massive noncompliance.
