Seriously, the hysterics being played out there by “experts” is pretty amazing to me. It’s these knee-jerk reactions by the media that makes me want to give Trump’s supposed knee-jerk reactions a chance to succeed.
That’s right. It does not take into account the value of any particular regulation on is merits. It just assumes - without looking in detail - that there must be lots of bad regulations, and we can look at the merits of those regulations when it comes time to go on the scavenger hunt to find the worst of the worst. So,yes. Childish and unthinking is a good way to describe this EO. If there are bad regulations he wants to get rid of, why wait until some new regulation is proposed to go looking for them? Why not do in now, independently of any new regulations? It is almost as if we have only so much shelf space in our federal library and when a new book comes in, we must find some old books to discard.
Why do you say “experts”? Do you have evidence (and simply naming the paper is not evidence) to show that these individuals are not experts? Isn’t it possible that their expertise makes them capable of quickly assessing the quality of something in their field (as I am sure you can in your own field)?
