Every once in a while, being the nerd that I am, I head on over to the Federal Register and check things out.

The Federal Register is a journal of the Federal Government’s rules, proposed rules and public notices. It even contains presidential documents including executive orders, proclamations and administrative orders.

They publish it every weekday. Once rules are approved, they publish the final rules by topic or subject matter and these rules are codified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) which gets updated annually.

The Federal Register has been available online since 1994 and it was founded in July of 1935 under the Federal Register Act. The first issue of the Federal Register was published in March of 1936.

There is absolutely no way to count the number of words that are in the registry and account for the tyranny the federal government and the bureaucracies have thrust upon us.

Currently, as I type this at 7:13 am EST on Thursday, August 25, 2022, there are 897,300 documents in the Federal Register.

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

The Founding Fathers never wanted this. The citizens of the country don’t want this. It’s the biggest example of the tyranny and out of control government that we have ruling over us (COVID-19 rules are a close second).

I don’t have a big enough calculator to even estimate how many words are in those 897,300 documents. Obviously, every document is at least one page but most are more. A lot more.

Let’s just play a game and say that the average number of pages in a document is seven pages (and that’s WAY low)…I took one of their seven page documents and put it in a word counter – 7,594 words.

What is 7,595 x 897,300? It’s 6,814,993,500.

That’s 6.8 billion words.

Have you, as an individual or a business owner, had the time to sit down and read all of those words to make sure you are fully compliant with the federal government? Because they can ding you on any one of those rules that they have in place. And they will. Especially when there is a tyrannical and radical presidential administration in power like there is now.

By the way, there are only 4,543 words in the Constitution, including the signatures and it’s only four sheets of 28-3/4” x 23-5/8” paper. It contains 7,591 words including the 27 amendments.

An easy read. But freedom usually is.
