*** begin quote ***
Give us an example of an absurd law that should be taken off the books.
You have people who kill the wrong animal while hunting, use the wrong weapon, or kill some animal on the wrong day — there are a thousand of these things. Catch too many fish, catch the wrong type of fish, catch too big of a fish. They make these people felons. With some 2.3 million U.S. prisoners, what will happen in your view without serious criminal justice reform?
It is an economic catastrophe for this country. It’s unsustainable, and over time, the system will implode. … The states have budgets they have to adhere to. But the federal government just keeps printing money and throwing it into the system.

As a little L libertarian, I rant about the Gooferment being immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!
Here’s yet another convert to the “church” of anti-Gooferment!
There are just too many attempts to legislate the unlegislatable.
No one can follow all the rules, diktat, “laws”, and regulations.
Unless you’re a member of the political class (i.e., Bill and Hillary), then it doesn’t matter.
