As a kid, my favorite comeback to my mother was always “but William is doing it.” Her canned response was always “If William jumps off a bridge, are you going to follow him?” I think it is time that my Uncle gets to hear my mom’s speech. Of course, I am talking Uncle Sam. Every time we propose increasing regulations on our nation’s resource providers, it seems to be because the European Union (EU) is doing it. The latest that caught my attention is a proposed ballot measure in the State of California in November 2008.
