That is true, but it might be easier for muggers & rapists to hide in a park where there's trees & bushes & maybe not as good of lighting as in the city.

Dere's trees and bushes in a lot places. confused
The Budgetary Regulation Bill:
- The Federal Budget is Split into Consistent and Temporary Categories.
- Only Consistent inflows can fund consistent outflows (Income Taxes, Sales Taxes...) (Interest on Debt is a consistent outflow)
- Only Temporary Inflows can fund Temporary outflows (Resource Taxes, Debt...)

- The Consistent category must be audited to maintain reasonable balance at least every 5 years to limit the problem of structural deficit.

- The Temporary category must have a Congress mandated size limit.

A large, sweeping piece of legislation broadly altering US drug policy (You may wonder why I wouldn't write a piece of legislation for my own country, but that would be because you don't really understand how my country works.) This would outline the process of legalisation and regulation of various narcotics and scale back the DEA and various other enforcement agencies/mechanisms. Down with the War on Drugs, it has been a long time in the coming.
