    You must not have gotten the memo. Anytime that a government agency does something which might theoretically affect a business in some indirect, but negative, way, it's an unwarranted abuse of government power and an example of Nazism, Fascism and probably Socialism.

    Not to mention that it makes Jesus cry, kills puppies and forces ceiling cat to urinate from on high.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
