"...You've given me 600 bills, and there's not 600 problems that we need those solutions for."I am no fan of Jerry Brown. I despised him during his last stint in the Governor's chair. The Rose Byrd court that he foisted upon California was a disaster that is still having effects 30 years later. Yet, he seems to have matured a little. Perhaps some wisdom comes with age after all.
I quote the above for the truth that it represents. Not every human problem requires a new law to address (paraphrasing something else that Jerry Brown stated recently). It is time to take Jerry Brown's example, and apply it to our national legislature. Instead of constantly asking Congress for new laws, perhaps we should be mailing Sharpie pens to them instead. Let them redact whole sections of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. It would be a good start.
