Ust make sure it ain't a relative first mind -they get might pissed off other wise!!

    You've already identified the problem -- it's people who ask the government to do something.

    When we trust in markets, we get human intent -- but not human design.

    Hi Fannie,

    Your problems are solved. COME TO TEXAS. No laws, no taxes, and you are on the right side of the ocean; no canals or locks to go through.

    About the life jackets, don't throw them away. They'll come back when the laws change.

    Photo of my boat enclosed.
