All I can say is... thank God I don't live in the US, eh? <evil grin>

Seriously... this is what we get from allowing ourselves to be governed. It just goes to show you how impressively easy it is for the Congress to sneak all sorts of laws (many of them possibly unconstitutional) past the people's collective back. When such a select group of people are given this kind of power, it's an obvious sign that something is very wrong.

I say it's time for a worldwide bloody revolution.

(I'm working on an article on practical political science for the 21st century, but it's hardly done yet... more on that later.)
