    And at the same time, can you imagine the frustration at what some inspectors are balking at when this is the crap they are supposed to be looking for?

    As a chief inspector in Oregon it’s scary but I’ve seen worse....much worse

    Inspections and permits do little to nothing to eliminate substandard work.

    More they demand a benchmark for workmanship any trade can aspire to , the consumer can have confidence in , and a competitive playing field can exist in Peter

    There needs to be a middle here, some have it, the rest have one extreme or the other.

    What utopian world are you living in? The reality is the exact opposite of those things. I repeat - inspections and permits do virtually nothing to guarantee a quality installation. In fact, most of the hack work I see is by so-called licensed electricians that was permitted and inspected.

    You are simply not living in reality.

    Yeah, ok. Without inspectors there are no electricians? Seriously? That is laughable at best.
