Thanks, I wasn't feeling very welcome here!  :)

I think we're saying the same thing, just in slightly different terms, and substituting "people with money" for "lawyers."  (There's a difference???)

It's not sort of like that at all. Laws get passed when people with 
money decide they want them passed and they're oriented so the same 
people with money can have their asses covered at taxpayer expense. 
So you get manufactured product exemptions in the engineering laws 
and protective clauses and earmarks for roads to nowhere.
