They impose up to a year in prison, a $1,000 fine, and civil trespassing liability for people who enter open lands without permission…

Maybe “open lands” isn’t a very good name for them anymore.

Luckily, the new law is unable to be enforced, due to itself.

Maybe The United States of America isn’t a very good name for us anymore.

Wait… damnit! Thoughtcrime!
