Midnight Regulation

2016-12-08T04:31:00-05:00

Entry in progress—B.P. American Action Forum December 2, 2016 Lame Duck Regulatory Agenda Projects $44 Billion In Midnight Costs Sam Batkins Here are the final pieces to President Obama’s regulatory legacy. What can the nation expect in the lame duck? What will Congress target for repeal in 2016?  With the recent release of the administration’s final regulatory agenda, it has largely answered these questions. An American Action Forum (AAF) review of the data found at least $75.3 billion in planned regulatory costs, including the majority ($44.1 billion) during the “midnight” regulatory period from November 2016 to January 2017. This would be in addition to the more than $150 billion in final regulatory costs already published in 2016. Washington (DC) Free Beacon Obama Administration’s Midnight Regulations to Total $44 Billion Regulatory costs are more than eight times higher than what was originally projected BY: Ali Meyer December 5, 2016 3:50 pm The Obama administration has put forth 25 so-called “midnight” regulations, which will cost the economy $44.1 billion, according to a report from the American Action Forum. Midnight regulations are rules that are published after Election Day and before the next president is inaugurated in January 2017. Earlier this year, the administration estimated that there would be $5.2 billion in regulatory costs incurred during that time.



“A joke walks into a bar…” (bar joke)

2016-12-08T04:17:00-05:00

“A guy walks into a bar...” is a typical form of what has been called the “bar joke.” A meta-joke version is: “A joke walks into a bar. Bartender says, ‘Woah! I’ve never meta joke before!’” The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on November 7, 2016. Wikipedia: Meta-joke Meta-joke refers to several somewhat different, but related categories: self-referential jokes, jokes about jokes (also known as metahumor), and joke templates. This kind of meta-joke is a joke in which a familiar class of jokes is part of the joke. Examples of meta-jokes: . An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bar. The bartender turns to them, takes one look, and says, “What is this - some kind of joke?” . A priest, a rabbi and a leprechaun walk into a bar. The leprechaun looks around and says, “Saints preserve us! I’m in the wrong joke!” Reddit—Jokes A joke walks into a bar… submitted November 7, 2016 by thedailyhominid Bartender says woah!
