    Success for Managers means: I want to be in healthy relationships. I want a real connection with people I spend so much time with.

    Anyone who thinks that a lack of regulation caused the housing crisis is either being ignorant or fooled by our congress. What made all those bankers give out bad loans? Have any of you pro regulation looms thought of that? Banks don’t make that kind of error all at once… Unless their incentives are perversed by a government. You simply cannot tell banks that Fannie and Freddie must buy their bad loans and expect the banks to continue to deny bad loans… It’s just a beautiful cycle for power

    If Ron Paul was really not a government apologist, he´d be pro – revolution.

    Ron Paul does not understand Austrian economics. Here is a director quote from Hayek that appeared in a letter to a London newspaper in 1932:

    “No one thinks that deflation is in itself desirable.”

    Ron Paul has said many times that deflation is in itself desirable. He said exactly that in the first hearing he held as Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

    Google this phrase: “No one thinks that deflation is in itself desirable.” +hayek

    Too bad Ron Paul does not understand how the housing bubble inflated. Low interest rates were obviously a factor but the US also had a trade deficit of 5% of GDP which meant billions flowing in from overseas. Thanks to lax regulation Wall Street pumped that money into the housing sector via liar loans which they could bundle up, get rated AAA and sell to suckers. The countries with housing bubbles (UK, Spain, US, etc) all had large capital account surpluses and lax regulation.

    When will it be over (Obama said he would end the wars, instead he escalates and some how calls having 60,000 troops in Iraq the end of the war)? Why are we fighting it? What does victory even look like? Why have we been in a state of perpetual war since WWII? Ever read 1984? It’s all BS and control… and the american people/media don’t even care! Nor do they ever make the connection between are economic peril and the multiple “wars” we are always fighting

    but you have no experience in dealing with the regulations. Sure, they look great on paper! Keep us safe, protect us! But implementation is a pain! I wanted to open my restaurant in Down Town Royal Oak, but it would have taken me over a year to become compliant with every regulation! But who can open it quickly? Those with political connections and deep pockets!

    And being clean is such a small part of health inspection. You should see what I get knit-picked over!

    Because as with Seatbelt and Speed limit laws, the Feds do not have the power to make them, but they can hold funding ransom to the states unless they do pass the laws. So it’s BS.

    And again, I’m not making shit up. Google it, their are studies that show fatality rates rise. But politicians don’t really care about facts/studies.. another big reason to support them having less power.

    When I went through Food Safety in college, at absolutely no point did “LAWS” come in to play. It was about whats the best/safest/smartest practice. Laws are too slow. And they are made without examining the consequences.

    Restaurants are only inspected twice a year. That does not make sure everyone always washes their hands.

    And go watch Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares, and see how “Clean” some of your “A” rated restaurants are.
