    If our forebears had used the precautionary principle to guide their lives, we would still be living in caves, if alive at all.

      The millenials have been indoctrinated to be such precautionary pussys
      to bring people back in the caves-
      that’s what desindustrialisation&agw is all about.

        A whole lot if it is the accumulation of legal BS forced on companies because damage awards obviously predicated on an idea that the consumer or user is an idiot and cannot be held responsible for their own actions.

        The whole basis of the lefts agenda is that the average person is not able to take care of themselves as well as the state. This is reflected in the over the top “precautionary principle” as Tony is showing.

          Spot on-
          you can see this especially when you take a closer look how thiscmasterrace is treating certain minorities.

          They really think that people of certain skin color are so dumb that they are unaware of what they are doing and therefore irresponsible for their behaviour
          (victims by default)
          and that these people by default can not be racist
          no matter how racist they behave.

          As a little child(and as part of a minority) i had the “honor” to be exposed to the bizarr side effects of this indoctrination-
          at birthday parties i got praise/ compliments from PC parents for most average things (eg. fluent speaking or eating with knife and fork properly)
          -this gives you a feeling of being a dumb/handicapped fool
          when something everyone else can and noone cares about is all of a sudden considered a special achievement as soon as you do it and people are artificially nice to you.

    OSHA was not a bad idea on the face of it but like all such things it became a way for government to make money or punish companies to make them less competitive against the preferred contractor. 10s of 1,000s of dollars in fines for things like not having the MSDS on hand for white out or a missing ground prong on an extension cord plug and many other over the top fines.

    I learned relatively early in life that honest businessmen that aren’t properly politically connected need not apply for Federal Government contracts. Even if you get them they will screw you every time. When I was a teenager my father was the successful bidder for building a trash pump trailer for the US military. The unit consisted of a Lycoming 4 cylinder air cooled engine driving a large locally produced pump mounted on a wheeled frame formed in the shape of a triangle with rounded corners. Right off the bat the government inspector started rejecting the completed units because he claimed the paint was 1 mil out of spec! I defy anyone to hold the thickness of standard spray painted primer and paint to a 0.001″ tolerance! The guy wanted a kick back!

      I worked on the maintenance crew of a school district. People would and should be stunned at the sickening waste of tax dollars. Our school district got away with murder when it came to OSHA until toward the end when we began to have more and more silly classes on everything imaginable and they would bring in these overpaid consultants to field his scam. How many private small businesses could afford the downtime to pay their workers to sit in a class for hours, forget about the exorbitant cost of bringing in these silly hired guns to teach these Mickey Mouse classes. I wish I could articulate it better, but I was aghast at the whole charade….

      Lots of corruption in government. Back in the early 1960s my father was working for the Air Force. One day he said that in order to get a government contract, the bidder had to pay the officials a bribe. It wasn’t long after that that he got another job in a different state.

      In another case, I knew a government official whose wife had a shell company that had all his contracts went through, thus skimming off money.

    If we had used the precautionary principle, we would have told the eco-types to take a long walk off a short pier; they have never been right about anything…..ALAR, AGW, Acid Rain, Global Cooling, etc etc

    Where in the US constitution government has this power?

    This is multinationals making life impossible for small business. So don’t tell me capitalism doesn’t function if the system we have has nothing to do with capitalism.
