Oppressive Regulation Threatens Remaining U.S. Jobs

Experts say we are in an “invisible” economic depression and, despite the mainstream media’s constant insistence, there is no discernible recovery despite trillions of wasted dollars spent by this failed administration. Any improvement in the private sector is immediately squandered by heavy-handed federal interference and is far too anemic to make any real dent in the financial quagmire created by our elected officials.
A government truly interested in improving the plight of its citizens would help foster an environment conducive to creating new jobs and maintaining existing ones. Leftist politicians, however, generally attach a higher importance to grabbing more power for themselves than the well-being of those they are supposedly representing. As evidence of this, regulatory overreaches on the part of the federal government have taken a toll on already-struggling employers. One such company, N.Y.-based Maxfield and Oberton, makes a line of magnetic desk toys known as Buckyballs and Buckycubes. Despite being approved (after complying with extensive safety measures and regulation) by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in 2010, the same agency has recently filed an administrative complaint against the manufacturer, seeking to prevent the product from being sold anywhere. Reports indicate this is just the second such action the CPSC has taken in more than a decade. Part of their initial compliance dictated the company list multiple warnings on its product boxes, outlining the risk of injury associated with swallowing the small magnets. Dealing with each tragic case of choking among children, who tend to put just about anything they find into their mouths, is not only outside the realm of governmental possibility but is actually exacerbated by a product of their own – coins.
Even including food items, nearly 1 in 5 choking episodes reported among young children were caused by a coin. I think it’s safe to say far more kids choke on a dime, which contains exactly zero warning labels, than a Buckyball.
