President Trump recently invited the press into the White House where he gave a demonstration on the dangers of “regulations.” He stood next to stack of papers that each represented a regulation designed to protect your health and safety, and then bragged about the fact that he was destroying them. Your air and water are becoming more dangerous, and Trump couldn’t be happier about it. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

So Trump has gone from bragging that he could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any voters to wholesale slaughter of Americans. In fact, the majority of the victims of his deregulation are likely to be from his loyal base, as they're the only ones refusing to see the dangers in his actions & therefore will fail to avoid the results of his deadly idiocy.

I don't think it is a question of whether you want regulations or not, but the type of regulations you want. Often there are a lot of smaller overlapping regulations which could have been better solved by a single better thought out regulation.

E.g. in my native Norway we got taxes on gasoline and cars, depending on how big the engine is. The idea is that you want to discourage environmentally unfriendly car usage. The simple way to do this would have been to simply tax gasoline and ignore taxing cars. People will counter that that is unfair to people living in remote areas who have to drive more. So we start taxing cars as well. But then people argue that, some cars with bigger engines need that because they are family cars, but we don't want to hurt families with small kids. So then we need to make exceptions in the rules for that. This approach to regulation causes massive amounts of complicated rules.

A simpler approach is to divide all concerns. You simply remove all car taxes and tax gasoline. Then you give a tax deduction for living in the provinces and a tax deduction for having small children. Those are simpler rules to manage and understand. You accomplish the same but with simpler regulation.

I wish people were more concerned with having high quality regulations rather than simply more or less of them.

Regulations aren't bad they keep companies from doing whatever they want or ignoring whatever they want. They keep them from trying to maximize profits by cutting corners in ways that would hurt the people or things that are immoral. Regulations are painted bad by republicans because it keeps them from doing things that are not in the best interest of people or small companies. Yeah a car company would make more money if they didn't have to make sure your seat belts work but do you really want to make that optional?

You always hear republicans complain about "government regulations are hurting the working class", but just ask them where did things like the 40 hr work week, safety rails, labels for different chemicals and their hazards, workmens comp, making sure workers had lunch breaks, overtime pay, and federal holidays off work came from. It wasn't out the goodness of the hearts of businessesmen or corporations. They be been forced to do those things. They don't want to treat workers like human beings, they never have.

Well, I guess next time the DNC will have a better candidate in 2020. Who's at fault? The DNC.

That's the problem, most Trump voters weren't around to breathe or see the smog, or all the pollution in our lakes and streams. It was sickening.
