    Where and when will governmental overreach be resisted, and how?

    This may seem ridiculous. . .but breaking occupational protection schemes is going to be incredibly important for productivity growth and job creation in the future. Harassing music teachers might not make much sense, but going after, say, doctors, or laywers, might.

      More importantly, if the feds don’t go after the music teachers, then there is a precedent that closed professions will use to argue for their own anti-poaching regulations (which I expect are enforced). And I’m sure the closed professions’ lawyers are watching carefully…

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it with the swaggering music teachers in this country, acting like they own the place! Well there’s one guy they can’t push around, and his name is Uncle Sam.

      I keep having flashbacks of the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Deploy the Holy Hand Grenade to protect us from these noxious music teachers.

    I expect to learn that they were handing out copies of the constitution and promoting constitutional awareness.
