This is a good column. It shows the level of interference we now have in our lives from bureaucrats. I doubt that the founding fathers had this level of federal government control in mind when the drafted the Constitution.
The Bureaucrat in Your Shower - Mises Institute: "The Department of Energy may soon be paying a visit to a certain shower-head manufacturer in Arizona. The company is Zoe Industries Manufacturing. It runs Showerbuddy.com, a popular site that sells amazing equipment for bathrooms.
Consumers love the company but one man doesn't. He is Al Deitemann, head of conservation for the Seattle Water Board. Al ordered some products and sent them to BR Laboratories in Hungtington, California, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. And sure enough, Bureaucrat Al gained enough data to report Zoe to the feds, accusing Zoe of 'blatant violations of environmental protection laws.' Now the heat is on."
