Matty’s Corralled Thoughts: Obama’s About Face

President Obama announced today that he is signing an executive order to review all government regulations.  It is kind of odd to sign a regulation to regulate the regulators that have made the regulations.  I think if Dr. Seuss were alive he could have fun with that sentence.  Obama acknowledges,…
