Mandatory HalfBakery Legislative Review

The Judicious Pre-screening of Law Makers' Flaky Motions
  (+3, -8)(+3, -8)
(+3, -8)
  [vote for,
against]

Seems as though especially nowadays Officials, charged with the responsibility of scripting rules and regulations (that become bills and eventually morph into laws), get away with presenting some of the stupidest ideas!

A lot of those idiotic suggestions happen to garner certain advantage getting streamlined through the capillary action of 'the buddy system.'

I propose that there may be a significant tax savings achieved if Law Makers were required to pre-screen their ideas by way of free non-enterprising scrutinization through mandatory HalfBakery submissions!

       There's no way I'd want to live in a country where people like me played any part in the legal framework. But [+] if this means we can help to shape French law.

       I'd prefer it if we could fight wars with cats over custard and tumbleweeds.

       If we had Vernon and Treon rewrite all the bills, nobody would or could read them.
Canuck, Feb 10 2008
  

       Yeah, have you read a bill lately?   

       Legaleese should be registered as a separate language.

       There is no real division;   

       Only coarse decisions   

       Made in hasty moments   

       With retrofit revisions,   

       That may be flawwed as well.

       That was close to a haiku, but not quite. May I suggest:   

       There is no real division
Only decisions
Made coarse in hasty moments.

       When you say seasons
Do you mean a time of year
or salt and pepper ?

       No real seasons
Just decisions made spicy
In tasty moments

       //Wars would be fought over cats//   

       shirley you mean "Wars would be fought with cats? "

       Nevertheless the site would be overrun with "the bad people". Maybe a meta site where people of reason would be secretly invited to join the secret Half Legislatury and kabal the making of laws. A internet "Jerga for Justice" in legislation.

       Just saying, uncensored debate would probably be better than just listening to TIMA, HAL, and VIKI.
