I mean lawyers, after all, don’t produce anything. They enable other people to produce and to go on with their lives efficiently and in an atmosphere of freedom. That’s important, but it doesn’t put food on the table and there have to be other people who are doing that. And I worry that we are devoting too many of our very best minds to this enterprise.

Seriously though, common sense is something often bereft in WashDC as well as the various state capitals. Try reading our Constitution some time…they didn’t need gobs of regulatory language to make a point. Then compare our Constitution to that of the proposed EU constitution, hundreds of pages of legalese that over regulates everything and anything...point proven
