> The polarity and variety of positions regarding this legislation, and the very emotionally-charged aspects of same, are to me pretty good clues as to why truly effective legislation rarely, if ever, is enacted. Attitudes are so different, that it's a sure bet that no matter what is legislated, 50% will like it and 50% will hate it. It's frustrating.
Not so. I finally have some faith that Congress and the Senate and by extension the Supreme Court are not all idiots as I previously had. This was a big improvement and a change for me.
