Time for Congress to Ban Snow Storms

A funny opinion article in the Philadelphia Inquirer:

A better climate-change bill

By Sam Ryan
As the mid-Atlantic region faces yet another massive blizzard, the problem of unregulated snow can no longer be ignored. It's time for Congress to set limits on the crystalline mayhem descending through the atmosphere and disrupting the lives of hardworking Americans.

Certainly, snow-control legislation would require political will and bipartisan support. But if today's policymakers don't put an end to snowstorms, these boom-and-bust blizzards will continue to undermine our nation's growth and prosperity.

Consider the facts: Local governments such as Philadelphia's are struggling to deal effectively with the amount of snow we're getting. With Washington in the path of a major storm again, essential federal services will be shut down. And weatherpersons "predict" snow, but they don't do anything about it.
Read it all.

What really strikes me as funny here comes from the Marxist mentality of some of our Congressfolk. They seem to think they can legislate the laws of economics. Of Course they can no more change the laws of economics by legislation, than they can ban snow storms.
