Standard 12' Length of Rope to be Protected by New Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. - UPDATE 1 - The U.S. Congress today passed, and the President quickly signed into law, legislation protecting Americans from losing all their possessions in these difficult times of financial crisis -- a time when banks need more money of course, but the Citizen, is not forgotten.

"We had to move to protect the public from losing everything, so we got this on the fast track and got it done.

"We just did a reform of the bankruptcy law, but needed to add this one more reform", mused the Speaker.

Details of the new measure are a little tangled, but the new law protects Americans in the event that they are turned out on the street after banks take all their assets to retire debt. A little comfort in these hard times?

The two items that can never be confiscated as of today: a 12 foot length of rope, and all the aspartame you can carry.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
