perhaps, one mistakes bureaucratic rules and regulations as law because because it has all been criminalized. our feeling on law is that law is what has been politically approved by a legislature and approved by an executive both of which are answerable to the will of and consent by the People, unless the law is disallowed by the courts as unconstitutional. bureaucrats have no business criminalizing a rule or regulation in order to govern our society. Historically, that way leads to rule by elites and revolution. so, where are we now?
Oh Lord just look at the EPA. They, the servants of the people made it a crime to manage your own pond on your own land and insisted on treating ditches as 'navigational waters of the US' which they used to weaponize an agency in order to destroy people. As Gollum would say, "we hates them."
spiraling down the drain, if we don't get off our duffs...
That is a lot of intricate ironwork, there!
I recall a stress analyses of a spiral staircase done in engineering school way, way back when I actually gave a schit. our conclusion was one would be better off with a ladder.but that one is a beauty and has nice paint.
I remember the amazing double helix spiral stair case in Chambord. Awesome and holding together pretty well. : )
