Any addenda would not be "in the sponsor's own hand," and therefore, would not legally be a part of the bill. Changes would have to be submitted as an entirely rewritten bill.

Well, if the sponsor has to write it, then presumably, he read it, too. If you're saying give the test to those who VOTE on it, then I agree... And if they fail, it is an immediate shotgun to the back of the head. Voting on things that will affect the lives and livelihoods of millions of Americans should be taken just that seriously.

Instead of limiting bills to 100 pages, why not simply require that the bill be written in the sponsor's own hand? (Meaning: With an actual pen. Preferably a goose-quill pen, such as they might have used to draft the constitution.) This would guarantee that bills would be short, sweet, and to-the-point.

Instead of limiting bills to 100 pages, why not require that any bill submitted for consideration must be hand-written in ink (preferably with a goose-quill pen!) by the sponsor? That would cut WAAAAY down on length.

The 2 Cent Budget Fix

I could solve the problem permanently: Amendment to the constitution: "All members of the House of Representatives shall share, by equal distribution, an amount equal to one percent of the difference after governmental expenditures are subtracted from tax revenues to the Treasury. It is explicitly directed that when governmental expenditures exceed tax revenues, each member of the House shall surrender said amount to the treasury from his personal assets." Thus, if there is a $435,000,000,000 deficit, then each member of the house will be personally liable to surrender to the treasury $10,000,000 of his personal assets. On the other hand, if there is a $435,000,000,000 surplus, then each member would be paid a $10,000,000 bonus.

No. Just that saying "Oh, my God!" is not taking the Name of God in vain. I have seen a number of churches that take the Name in vain - Some even include it in the name of the church! Now, using the pronoun in a sentence such as "God said..." can be blasphemous, if it runs counter to what is clearly written, but it doesn't count as using His Name. It's just as bad, but it is different.

"God" is not God's name, any more than "President" is obama's name. "God" is a title, or perhaps, an office. A pronoun. I won't print His name here, because it is only to be used when one is deep in prayer and communion with Him, (or when reading it in the Bible) and then only sparingly.
Don't waste your time answering. Schnookumz is not asking for an answer; She's asking a rhetorical question that's somehow supposed to show us how foolish we are and make us reevaluate our beliefs and then thank her for showing us the error of our ways.
There's lies, damned lies, and statistics.
