The busybodies must by their nature remain “busy.” (Usually to the detriment of the people around them.) That’s why we must reduce the number of government busybodies. It’s the only way to keep these people in line. They’ll never stop. They’ll never regulate themselves. Their natural tendency is to insert themselves into every nook and cranny of life.

An Oregon couple has been told they must destroy a 2-acre pond on their land — the property’s most attractive feature — because the government said so.
Although Jon and Sabrina Carey purchased the 10-acre property near Butte Falls two and a half years ago, the pond has been in place for 40 years — but that fact doesn’t matter to the Jackson County Watermaster’s Office.
“I basically bought a lemon,” said Jon, who became teary-eyed at the edge of the partially ice-covered body of water being targeted by government, in an interview with the Mail Tribune. “That’s how they explained it to me.”
