    It is more than spot on, it is excellent...albeit from a hated source. 

    Surprised this quote wasnt used:

    "The more numerous the laws,  the more corrupt the State"

    -Tacitus, Roman Senator

    All the issues raised, goes twice for 'regulations'.  Regulations are a huge political weapon.

    Yes spot on.

    Any halfwit AG could indict a ham sandwich.

    The government can take down whoever and whatever it wants.  Large corporations can be hobbled and shaken down with negotiated settlements with just the threat of criminal prosecution because just an indictment (not guilt) will precluded a company from government contracts.
