A Modest Proposal For The Control Of Government Laws

Another sad attempt to control government laws by means of government laws:

Help us pass the
“Read the Bills Act of 2005” (RTBA)

You can read the text of RTBA by clicking the Draft Legislation tab above, or you can start by reading a summary of the legislation below. Following that summary is a description of our strategy for passing RTBA, and then a call to action.

And we all know that this never works – government ignores laws, so it can ignore laws about laws. Forget all of that. I propose something totally different, much better, guaranteed to work:

A Law To Control Government Laws By Controling Government Laws That Control Government Laws.

Take that, Congress! What you gonna do now, when we got us a law that says you have to pay attention to what the law that says you have to follow the law says?

Huh?

Yeah, that’s right, you’re gonna just sit down and shut up and start following this killa law-following-law-following-law we’ve got.
