Your Congress at Work

Congress is considering whether it should be illegal for your cellphone camera to be in quiet mode.  Lord knows, Congress has nothing better to do than control the sounds cell phones make.  The Feds believe that if a cell phone makes a shutter noise when it takes a picture, that will protect children from sexual predators... but what if someone actually encounters a sexual predator and wants to quietly take his picture?  Who's being protected then?  We're all being controlled by a bunch of feel-good little emperors, put into power to represent us and instead are chipping away our adulthood one little chip at a time.

Personally, I think the Emergency Broadcast System should sound the air-raid sirens each time Congress makes a new law... that would do more to protect my children than a camera click.
