I know this is late, but I’d like to point out that this… Individual voted against H.R. 4247. This is a bill that introduced legislation to help prevent child abuse in schools. It’s about 28 pages – 5 pages in normal format – so you can read it yourself in a few minutes. If you do, you will see that there is nothing remotely objectionable in it to anyone, unless they hate children or love child abuse. This is not hyperbole – there really is nothing in this bill that a human being could object to.

Based on this evidence, I believe Steve Austria to either be a monster disguised as a human, a man of evil on par with Hitler and Stalin, or an idiot who votes on party lines without getting any kind of information about what he’s voting on.

I hope for his sake nobody who suffered the abuse he wants to continue meets him. Actually, that’s not true. I hope for the other person’s sake, because not many juries will buy the “he was an evil monster disguised as a human” plea.

I was a victim of the form of abuse this bill seeks to prevent. I would very much like to put the “No” votes in the House and inevitably in the Senate in the shoes of those of us who were abused this way. Imagine being dragged against your will into a tiny, windowless room, thrown on the floor, held down and/or sat upon by two or more people three to five times your size for up to and exceeding thirty minutes at a time. This was not to protect the other children from me, this was punishment for any act deemed inappropriate, from arguments with the teacher to excessive belching. This was the abuse that I suffered as recently as 1998, and rest assured there are many cases that were far worse. It is about time that systematic abuse of children was outlawed in this country and every “No” vote is a personal attack on me and the thousands of other kids who’ve had to go through these experiences.

I’d prefer it to go to general cancer research. But this is a good first step.

Normally I’d say that this is completely pointless and a waste of the governments’ time, but I can’t oppose a bill which is essentially an official declaration that robots are awesome.

Because 499 just ISN’T ENOUGH NUKES.

Anything less is bigotry.

What a fantastically worthless piece of legislation. Next I suppose we’ll get the “cake is nice” bill?
