The Tale of a Fairyland

Once upon a time in a land far away, there was a govt composed of three 
Groups. The Legislative group composed laws and the Executive group 
enforced those laws. The Legislative group in times long gone passed 
laws and the Executive agency had to assemble the detailed regulations 
which would be followed to implement the laws. After the regulations 
were prepared, they would be reviewed by the Congress to ensure their 
consistency with legislative intent. This process was called Oversight.

Alas, modern processes have changed;  progressive legislators pass laws, 
fling them to the executive group, and endlessly pass more laws on top 
of existing laws ...  never mind their increasingly conflicting logic;  
e.g., how do we prevent the protected eagles from eating the protected 
wolf pups on protected lands or how do we deter someone from enhancing 
their crime by hating as they commit the crime, or how one can be 
charged with violating a law when the law is classified secret, and so 
on.  Thus, we keep the third branch, the Judiciary, busy trying to tell 
the other two what they are allowed to do. This modern process is called 

And thus, the Regulators and their Subjects live happily ever after with 
diminishing regard for the Original Rules (whose intent remains fairly 
clear)  called a Constitution ...

Happy Next Year,
