Taken To The Cleaners

I have no idea what our foreign policy toward Libya should be, nor do I know enough about nuclear power plants to know whether the Japanese or Americans are right about safety precautions. But I do know about laundry, and How Washington Ruined Your Washing Machine resonates with me. Due to bonehead regulation, inexpensive washing machines no longer get clothes clean. This is just another Washington assault on the poor and middle classes, as well as their laundry. A person ought to think twice about advocates for the “common good” – this seems to be the code phrase for taking you to the cleaners. Maybe the Republicans can clean up the mess the Democrats have made, but I doubt it. All I know is this: if you screw up the little things, you’ll probably screw up the big things.
