Congress can only pass more laws. Don't we see the problems we face by
having too many already? A law is a legal right to use force to accomplish
some objective of society.

Each new law is, by definition, another chip off someone's freedom, very
often it is their freedom to act responsibly. It nearly always results in
the "Law of Government Opposites" being invoked, so the exact opposite of
the desired goal invariably happens.

floods our cities with really bad stuff. "Gun Control" ends up only
disarming potential victims who need help most, and encourages enormous

restrictions, but to seek out more rational ways to conserve the Everglades.

tough to out-think anything!

What's the opposite of Progress? Congress, of course. <VBG>
