Re: I started a petition
Look up the recent SCOTUS decision on the Stolen Valor Act. Lying for political gain is protected by the first amendment unless the liar can charged with fraud, a difficult charge to prosecute.
I like the sentiment though,
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
