Most things I agree with you on Jim, but on this I couldn't disagree more.
It's the huge amount of regulation, requiring more qualified inspectors 
than the government can produce.
It's big government that causes this rather than small.  IOW they need 
too many government workers rather than providing qualified people to do 
the jobs.  These requirements and shortage of qualified people lead to 
favoritism, unknowledgeable  inspectors, and those who will look the 
other way

Certainly we need regulations, but those regulations are of no use when 
they are mired in bureaucracy, kickbacks, and inspectors who do not know 
the ropes.
