    No wonder we get some crackpot laws in these countries. Why are we paying these ligislators so much if they can't do thier homework properly.

    When he realized how few of is fellow legislators took the time to thoroughly read proposed bills, Texas Representative Tom Moore Jr. introduced a bill honoring Albert DeSalvo (a.k.a. The Boston Strangler)for his work in population control. The resolution passed unanimously. And these are the people who are running our government, people!

    Can't wait until the law banning DiHidrogen Monoxide comes up.

    Senate panel debates living spaces for egg-layers

    Published July 26, 2012

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON – The freedom of a hen to move around freely became an issue of congressional concern as a Senate committee discussed legislation to set national standards for the treatment of egg-laying hens.

    The debate over how much space hens should have in their coops has drawn the attention of other livestock producers who fear that they'll be a target of animal welfare advocates. It has also become a states' rights issue as some states try to impose tougher standards on eggs coming from other states.

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California told the Senate Agriculture Committee that her bill to set national standards would increase the size of henhouses and require egg labeling so consumers will know how the hens were raised.
