    Each big corporation writes it's own part to exempt them selfs and impose regulation on the population, competition and smaller businesses, they combine it with the rest and there you go,a really big piece of "regulation", the shutdown of america in the name of fake environmentalism, all under the excuse of the global warming hoax.

    Blame the lawyers who look for loopholes if you want to get outraged.

    Used to work in (still do to a much less degree) and try to keep up with financial regulatory compliance. It never ends, always changes, and makes no damned sense. Lawmakers and regulators and industry lobbyist, good stuff.

    Your lack of attention span was not a criteria EPA was tasked to worry about.

    Government big business monopoly.

    They create rules to DESTROY small business and ensure that only the international corps with a legion of lawyers can swindle or bribe their way out of trouble.

    Basically this. Big companies push for this crap so they can ensure small companies can't comply, thus adding some barriers to entry.

    Made worse by the fact companies like GE hire thousands of lawyers to find every possible loophole.

    Funny how many times I've mentioned this in P&N and yet there is a core contingent on P&N that naively believes rampant and massive government growth and expansion in both its size and the scope of its reach in society is for the betterment of everyone. Nevermind how these very same people then complain about businesses (as a result of such over regulation) start moving jobs overseas.

    We are turning into a nation of lawyers and bureaucrats, where nothing really matters except for regulation. :\

    Very true. One of my friends was thinking about making specialized paint for things like model trains because it's actually a huge market that isn't being served. He looked at the legal requirements and gave up. There's no possible way to get into something like that unless you have teams of lawyers and people who do nothing but regulation compliance.

    Obama deserves a lot of blame for a lot of things, but I don't think the EPA is one of them.

    how is the EPA not one of them? He is in charge of the EPA these 25,000 pages were written under his leadership.

    I'm not saying this is unique to Obama, but come on man, its not like he hasn't directed the EPA to exert even more control over the people.

    How are then 25 million words making life better. Can they be quantified? The snarky assholes here are calling me stupid for not being able to grasp 25,000 pages.

    But please tell me who can? @300 wpm it would take someone aprox 58days straight to read just this regulation. This is sear stupidity and a sign our government is getting to big, and bloated.

    The reason for the voluminous rules is exactly because the legions of lawyers for huge corporations will try to figure out ways around the rules if every possible contingency isn't spelled out and every loophole isn't closed.

    How much of that 25-million word count is part of the EXISTING regulations that are being modified?

    You, of course, assume that there are 25 million new words. Because you're an idiot. But I'm guessing that the vast majority of those words are the existing regulations, and that small sections are being added/revised/deleted.

    Do you know what these EPA regulations cover? Not all of the regulations need to be read by everyone. The company I work for had an accident last year where a tank of 10% Sulphuric acid ruptured and made it into the storm drain. The rules on how to test and cleanup this mess are not needed by a pig farmer.

    The pig farmer would have his own section on what to do with 10,000 gallons of pig shit sewage before he dumps it into a river a few miles up stream from a municipal water system.

    The guy in charge at a battery factory needs to know nothing about pig shit coliform bacteria. His section deals with how to test and what the limits are for the lead and cadmium he releases into the environment.
