    Again it's a bad law. The Republicans and the four Democrats that voted against were correct to vote no.


    Nah. You acted like there were no definitions for the terms in the bill, I showed you there were clear legal definitions and then you guys made a hissy fit talking about “the law sucks!”

    It doesn’t, you two just don’t know anything about it.

    Nobody cares what you have to say. Their only interest is laughing at how dumb you are in saying it.

    I fully understand that laws are written with purposely vague language. My point is that the terms are not defined within the bills where they are used. Ask the lawmakers what the terms mean and they won't be able to tell you the precise definitions.
    As I said, it is easy to placate the constituents by passing laws of this nature. They really won't change anything in the business world. Petroleum companies will still make huge profits and people will still complain about them.

    That’s because the terms are defined in the law. They don’t put the definitions in the bill for the same reason Stephen King doesn’t put a dictionary at the end of his books: there is a dictionary where you can look it up.

    I will make one more comment and stop here.
    The terms within bills are purposely vague so that courts will have to decide what they mean. The wording of the bills allows lawmakers to placate their constituents.
    No need to respond to this statement.

    Told you he'd do it anyway.

    You, once again, failed to read. I have spoken the entire time on how there is nothing objective in the law and that while it means well, it fails completely. I also provided the consequences of the law as it stands.

    But go show this to your "friends" and let them all wet themselves again.

    No, you said the terms were vague and undefined. Except all those terms have precise legal definitions. Now you’re saying the legal definitions themselves are bad. And this was after you initially implied there was pork in the bill.

    Your reason to dislike it keeps changing. That’s because you were programmed to dislike it no matter what.

    Why doesn’t the bill define the word “the”? How are we supposed to know what that word means if each bill doesn’t say?!?!

    I never implied there was "Pork" in the bill. NYY stated it, but I did not infer it. Man you get beat a lot by the former pizza driver.

    There is literally NEVER a bill that doesn’t have pork. There is no miracle bill from our or anyone’s past that didn’t have pork in it. If you’re going to vote against every bill that has pork, then you will literally never vote for a single bill and honestly that is the stupidest proposition for a legislator.
