We gave you laws; why don't you respect us?

New York's Mayor Bloomberg, who is thrilled by the prospect of a mosque and Islamic cultural center next door to Ground Zero, got rich by creating a financial news network. The Bloomberg.com website published a wonderful headline and "news" story the other day:

Congress Enacting Most U.S. Laws Since '60s Gets No Respect
The 111th Congress returned to Washington this week with a record of legislative achievement that rivals President Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society.” Voters may show their thanks by throwing lawmakers out of office.
To which one is inspired to answer: Yes! Exactly! Of course the humorous aspect is that the Bloomberg journos take it as a given that the more laws Congress passes, no matter how destructive to our liberty and our prosperity, the more Congress is to be applauded. Do you think they'll ever figure out that the poll ratings aren't despite the legislation, but because of it? Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
