I'm finding it harder and harder to not feel extremely anxious about my upcoming vacation. Does anyone else remember when vacations were something to look forward to and not dread? Fortunately, a liberty-minded Rep from NJ has a solution in mind. I should probably create a separate thread for the details of it, but in the meantime, check out H.R.2589. Write your legis-leeches and demand support for it.
