Intent

When I become the king of the world, (yes, the king -I don't want to have to deal with re-election issues every couple of years) I will mandate that all laws shall have their intent recorded with the actual law. then when enforcing the law if there is a case that technically breaks the law but is not included in the intent of the law it shall not be counted as breaking the law.
An example would be jaywalking, clearly the intent of the law is to stop people form crossing the road at any point so that cars have an idea of where to expect pedestrians. Now there was a story in the news where a person helped out some old ladies cross the street but got a jaywalking ticket for doing so. He obviously wasn't crossing the street just to get to the other side, but to help someone out.

I would also mandate that every city that has more than 5,000 residents have an official soccer team and make a massive worldwide league.

not being able to read that cartoon gave me a small aneurism.

your idea of having the intent recorded with the actual law is brilliant. why are the things that seem to make the most sense completely out of the question in our government structure? WHY??!!

Because the people working for the government would lose their jobs if everything works smoothly, so it is in their best interest to make things hard.

Live long and prosper, King Shannon. I must humble myself and ask, oh King, why it must be soccer and not rollerhockey? Again, bowing before you and promising my service, why would you want to require a government to be logical? Your servant has many questions. Live long and prosper, King Shannon.

Soccer can be played almost anywhere under any conditions with minimal equipment. The cost to start a team in each city would be relatively small.

Also, hockey in any form is much too specialized to be a sport of the masses.

Oh, King Shannon. It is with much sadness that I must report we have failed to properly evangelize the world and help them believe that Rollerhockey is the Pearl of Great Price. Forgive us, oh King. Can I do rollerhockey in your royal hockey arena?
