RE: Building Codes on-line

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Not fair, Bill - isn't non-profit work socialistic? Isn't any government
subsidized service or product socialistic in nature? There are
protections of the public that must be covered by government as private
industry has not proven itself to be honest enough to serve the public
without taking advantage of them. Without laws, those in private
industry will take advantage of lawlessness. Without corruption, there
would be no need for complicated laws.

Gee, you socialists have been spouting this for 150 years, and it ain't
come true yet.

I suggest an alternate hobby.
