According to a recent Gallup poll, some Americans still admire Bill Clinton:
I am underwhelmed:
I'm underwhelmed by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as well. The last great Democratic Party president was JFK, in my perhaps not so humble opinion. Yes, that was long ago.
This is stunning:
The similarities between software and law is striking—in many respects, law is code. When viewed from a software engineering perspective, the U.S. Code resembles a large software system, and the application of software design principles allows us to quantify the extent to which the law is concise, changing, coupled, and complex. Our methods reveal the rise, spread, and fall of legal terms used in the U.S. Code, the structure of the cross-references network, and the types of laws that Congress enacts. When applied to specific Titles, these methods have identified particularly complex and highly interconnected sections, which should be prime candidates for regulatory reform and simplification. The sheer size and number of cross references within the core sections imply that software-engineering methods can play an important role in leveraging human ability. Therefore, a software engineering approach to measuring and managing the U.S. Code allows lawmakers to enact better legislation with fewer vulnerabilities.
The above charts shows the overall complexity of the body of the US legal code measured by word count. The following chart shows the number of conditional statements (“if,” “except,” “but,” “provided,” “when,” “where,” “whenever,” “unless,” “notwithstanding,” “in no event,” and “in the event”.)

Creating less complex laws and simplifying the existing legal code also reduce the number of unintended consequences and ensure more fair and equitable outcomes for all stakeholders, the conclusion says.
I wish all lawmakers took a course of coding. Otherwise, the US society and economy would drown in the borderless and ever expanding ocean of law.
I also wish to see a similar study done with the EU legal body.

Lack of creativity is usually replaced with perseverance:
That's their trick: denounce, dehumanise, destroy. Regrettably, the dirty old trick still works for the low I.Q. audience. How very sad.
