"Batshiat insane Represntative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge complete impossibility."

Sounds like someone got their panties in a wad. Must have had some bad comments on his facebook account.
 
2008-03-10 12:20:38 PM
Wow. Just wow. How dumb is this guy?

Represntative Couch says enforcing this bill if it became law would be a challenge great way of extorting revenue.
 
2008-03-10 12:22:34 PM
does he propose we begin using state-issued envelopes for mailing letter through the USPS as well?

Representative Couch says he filed the bill in hopes of cutting down on online bullying. He says that has especially been a problem in his Eastern Kentucky district.

Well, tell your snowflakes to toughen up, douchebag.

To hell with the First Amendment, this law wouldn't get past the Dormant Commerse Clause. Only Congress can regulate interstate commerse.
 
2008-03-10 12:23:27 PM
Wow. That would make it easier for crazy people to find me, wouldn't it?
 
2008-03-10 12:23:28 PM
A veritable age of reason - liket the one they had in France.
 
2008-03-10 12:23:34 PM
What a douche. I'd rather be in the Caymans than Kentucky though.
 
2008-03-10 12:23:53 PM
Wow - that's some fine lawmaking in Kentucky

On-line harrassment is big issue in Eastern KY? Shouldn't he be dealing with the REAL problems in KY, like illegal marijauna and meth. Obvioulsy all the other problems have been solved.

His last quote about "hard to enforce" is a classic understatement. There would be no way to enforce this at all

Hmm...let's see, banks are starting to close, markets continue to tank, country's going broke due to the above plus a war that's costing $4k/second, and this asshat wants to save us all from the menace of anonymous Internet posting.

Yep, sounds about right!
 
2008-03-10 12:25:38 PM
You would think that a public official would realize that making laws that are unenforceable, much like most drug laws, has the effect of lowering respect for the rule of law in general.

/Oh wait, it was Kentucky. Morans.

If these guys are looking for an excercise in futility I recommend they try herding cats. It'll get them outside, away from frightening things they don't understand and hopefully distract them from ideas like messing with my damn Bill of Rights. PUT THE INTERWEBS DOWN MR SENATOR AND SLOWLY BACK AWAY.

In other news, legislation was signed today in Kentucky that mandates anyone giving you the finger on the interstate must first pull over and give you a business card.

I'm Tim Couch, so I'm not getting a kick out of these replies...

It sounds to me like someone posted "I saw Tim Counch in a luxury box at a Bengals game with a lobbyist".
 
2008-03-10 12:27:11 PM
In other news, Rep. Tim Couch has never heard of /b/.

You sound like a Dapper Dan man to me.

The bill would require anyone who contributes to a website to register their real name, address and e-mail address with that site.

Has he hot daughters with a blog or myspace account?
 
2008-03-10 12:27:15 PM
Wait till he sees the net effect of this:

Zero change online, but lots of abandoned office space where thriving web-hosting data centers used to be.

Genius!

ablank: Tell him what a good idea this is.

About as good of an idea as your post. See the FArQ.
 
2008-03-10 12:27:25 PM
Sounds like someone left unflattering comments about Rep. Couch on his website. Probably something about his being descended from monkeys.

He also needs to get laid.
 
2008-03-10 12:27:29 PM
Is Kentucky a shiathole or is this idiot politician an exception to the rule?

I'm going to create a "Tim Couch" alias on every website in the intartubes, list my home state as Kentucky, and go trolling.

Which isn't much different from what I do now when I'm drunk, but it will be much, much funnier.

To hell with the First Amendment, this law wouldn't get past the Dormant Commerse Clause. Only Congress can regulate interstate commerse.

Except when the server and maintenance crew are in Kentucky. But, otherwise...yeah. If the piratebay can't be shut down, they'd have a hell of a time enforcing this.
