"If there is no problem, I see no reason for government to participate in creating a problem."
Senate leader Marc Basnight, D-Dare, speaking in favor of an override of Gov. Mike Easley’s veto of boat towing legislation.
Really? I mean seriously?
How about placing a moratorium on landfills and regulating their construction when there wasn’t a problem (well, other than YOU having a problem with one being built near your district)?
How about the menhaden fishing restrictions?
How about all the other environmental regulations you have helped enact to solve some perceived problem that has created bigger problems (impervious surfaces, storm water, mandatory recycling, biodegradable plastic bottles, etc.)?
How about all those people living peacefully in unincorporated areas that are involuntarily annexed into cities that you failed to protect?
If only your actions matched your words.
