    I don't know if I like this at all. This bill has extremely ambiguous language and could be used to stop free speech anywhere a person who has secret service protection is present. I don't like trouble making protesters, but a law that says they can be imprisoned for up to 10 years is rediculous. Passed the house and senate, waiting for the supreme ruler's sig.

    Yup your right. They didn't hesitate in doing so either.
