That's because you consider anything to do with real life "political."

We have a LOT of people here who are small business owners. The rest are
employees of engineering firms or other business entities. You can
dismiss this as "political crap" but it affects every single one of us
on this list, directly, and impacts our businesses and our professional

If you persist in saying that only your narrow definition of what is
"proper" must obtain, then we may have no more discussion of things like
whether you have to have a business license to practice engineering, or
whether H1 visas should be curtailed. That makes those "political
issues" as well.

There are lots of things ancillary to our professional lives, and I can
think of nothing more vital than how our personal AND business lives
will change if this travesty goes through.
