The thing about bills, that mostly goes unmentioned, is the brutish competitive nature of it all. Like any sport, or famed occupation, congressmen and
representatives get hooked on a bill, and once they hook it, they must win
. It doesn't matter if the bill sucks, even if it causes more trouble
than is really needed, they just have to win it like a pro-golfer needs to win trophies. The more controversial the bill, the deeper they hook in to
win. The bigger the trophy, the larger the pride.
The more bills, the more trophies. Look at me, I have some really big trophies. I have seven
trophies. I'm special.
Vanity, all vanity. This man, Lamar S. Smith, just wants to finish the bill, because it's a big special super bill. This 65 year old buffoon does not
care about intellectual property rights on the internet. He cares about winning. He wants his big trophy.
This happens with almost every major bill, big names and small names sign-on to get to be a part of the trophy. "I sponsored three
big bills in my career."
'.... but those bills accomplished nothing and caused a lot of strife, and people are suffering... ' "You don't
understand, I have really nice trophies now."
Also, lot's of corporate greenbacks.... Once you understand the language, all is clear.
Vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas
Vanity of vanities; all is vanity
