One promising alternative was unveiled today by a bipartisan group of 10 senators and representatives. It ditches the ???law and order??? approach to piracy and replaces it with a more limited, trade-based system.
And the legislators behind it have put out a draft of the idea for public comment before they even begin drawing up actual legislation. (Does the Smoky Back Room industry know about this threatening behavior?)
Alternative, or the pre-planned fall back. A comparative voice of sweet reason after the extreme first position was advanced as a stalking horse?
