Apparently, the Japanese government spent the better part of a week discussing flying saucers and what to do if Godzilla attacks.
Oh how I wish the UK Parliament and US Congress would spend less time on implementing laws to abridge our liberties and more on how to prevent 170 foot tall radioactive fire breathing saurians from stomping on our cities and destroying our skolzandhospitalz.
I certainly sympathize with this thinking. I remember studying the writing of the Texas Constitution in my government classes. The Texas Constitution lays out the legislative session so that legislators meet infrequently and are actually barred from passing legislation part of the time they are there. The reason for this is that the writer's believed that neither life nor liberty was safe while the Texas legislature is in session. (Paraphrasing) This is a view still very much alive.
