Of houses and beer

First the houses.  Waxman/Markey (the Cap and Trade bill) contains 397 new regulations and 1100 new Federal Mandates. One (just one, mind you) makes selling almost all private homes a Federally Regulated Transaction.  FRT’s require that you would have to have your house inspected for “greenness” and if it didn’t pass you would have to fix the windows or insulation or trees or replace non-energy star appliances or whatever the inspector decided was wrong or you would not be allowed to sell your house.

Lovely.

On a brighter note.  Yes, it is a pointless gesture, but a Brewery in Scotland took a bunch of flack for brewing an 18.2% alcohol beer, so they introduced a 1.1% alcohol  beer called Nanny State.
