Just Yet Another Case of someone not knowing what he's talking about, yet still making $200k a year to talk about it.

Just a floated idea that gets noticed and starts the ball rolling,, usually an extreme right wing view will float, countered with extreme left wing.. after years of debate it comes to a middle of the road watered down bill that all can live with and gets forced upon you

the point is along the way alot of palms gets greased to push thier point of view. right now Hatch has every industry leader calling his office to see how they can "donate" to his cause...

thats the differenence between them and us,, they play the game and make money while the blue collar jerk sit on the side line and wonders how stupidity gets elected... well,, they arent stupid, he just played the came and got the cash for a re-elction run paid for by software companies who, inturn, pass that cost onto you.

not so stupid huh?

depends on what his constituency thinks... although, most people are as or more ignorant than he when it comes to the rights of computer owners. [not to say Sentator Hatch isn't a bright guy, he just needs to do his homework, and give his staffers and arse whoopin']

or actually, 9 times out of 10, a watered down bill that accomplishes nothing. You can see that with the tax cut. Bush asks for 750 billion, gets less than half that, plus a bunch of welfare riders that will even lessen the impact of the anemic cut, but "everybody" is "happy"; Republicans can tell their constituents they got a tax cut, Democrats can tell theirs they fought the tax cut for the "rich", and later Democrats will be able to shout about the "failed policy" of tax cuts "for the rich", while the Republicans will be able to shout about the fact that the tax cut was crippled from the gitgo. Meanwhile a bunch of money is spent. The scripts are getting so predictable, politics is losing even its entertainment value.

The problem, of course, is the PC concept that comprimise is good, and the middle-of-the-road is always the right course and policy. Sometimes, on some issues, one "wing" or the other is right (usually the right wing, of course, :) ) and all the comprimisers are doing is preventing them from accomplishing what should be done. Good case in point; the Iraq war delay due to trying to comprimise with the U.N. Either do it or don't do it, but don't talk about it for months on end, and don't do it half-arsed when you finally do.
