But not long after you get to the exciting part about the boot of Big Brother stepping down on the throat of the Free Man as an uninterested ruling oligarchy look on uninterested, whoever asked you about them regrets even bringing it up.
And why wouldn't they?
Much like your wife's day at work, this "Big Brother watch dog" shit can be a bit of a bore.
But thanks to Sen. Mike Lee (R-Ut), we can now see the true cost of this seemingly never ending Government growth:
Busy little fuckers, were they not?
Now, if you wanna really get pissed, here's some fun spotlights in this telling picture. Figure A. (The one circled in red), resting safely atop that massive furniture just crammed with paper, is all of the laws voted on by elected members of both the House and Senate and signed into law by Lord Barrack. Not a very big stack, is it?
Makes sense, considering it is regarded by some to be the most unproductive year in Congressional history.
But now Figure B... The massive mountains of paper encased in wood... Those are all the NEW rules and regulations that the Federal Bureaucracy enacted into existence all by their lonesome...
In his Facebook description of the picture, Sen. Lee said:
"Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register. It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notifies all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats. The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law by the President."
And here I foolishly thought voting mattered....
