Now, let's say that you are a citizen of the United States of America. You've got some employees who have been hired to do specific jobs; for the purposes of this reality, let's call them congresspeople. Their job description is straightforward: create, rescind or change laws to improve our country. And there's a key element in there that maybe you've noticed your congresspeople not quite following through on: reading the laws to find out what they do first.
Since yesterday, at least seven of the co-sponsors of PIPA have announced their opposition to the bill. Senator Marco Rubio said that he had "legitimate concerns about the impact the bill could have on access to the Internet and about a potentially unreasonable expansion of the federal government's power to impact the Internet."
That's an excellent thing to be concerned about. But perhaps Senator Rubio should have investigated this bill and discovered that he had this concern about it before putting his name on it as a co-sponsor. Why did he not have this concern on Tuesday? Unless Florida does things very differently than I expect, Sen. Rubio has an entire staff whose job is to help him read and understand these things. And yet the fries still came out undercooked.
There are plenty of people who can work a fryer. It might be a good idea to find some who are less likely to burn down the business if left unattended.
