DC's Snow Day Rebellion

What happens when government imposes excessive rules and regs?

People just ignore them. 

Folks in DC are no exception. 

From sledding to snowball fights, dozens of children and their parents took to Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon to protest a controversial sledding ban.  
Capitol Police have refused to lift the sledding ban, but some parents organized a “sled in” on the west lawn of the Capitol to put a spotlight on the unpopular rule.  
The snow day provided ample opportunity for the children and their parents to challenge the sledding ban.  

There's a quote widely attributed to Winston Churchill. 

"If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law." 

American bureaucracy exceeded any practical limit long ago.
