Congess = Morons

Guess what the newest thing on Congress' agenda is. The Cell Phone Predator Alert Act.

Okay, basically, this law requires that any and all cell phones that contain digital cameras make a sound every time the camera takes a picture.

Good idea, yes, but still, our country is up to the eyeballs in problems, and Congress is wasting time with this? Besides, any real predator (and not some bonehead in the wrong place at the right time) would probably use a hidden video/still camera, or else physically disable or cover the speaker. And how does it deal with older "Pre-Ban" phones?

Yeesh, all the problems we've got on our plate, and this merits the government's rapt attention? I can't decide what irks me more, the fact that they're taking this so seriously or the fact that we keep voting these same dolts back into office.
