There's no *procedural* bar against us passing a wide variety of nonsense.

Hopefully, we'll be smart enough to deal with the most egregarious

That's not *all* that this would mean, but the things you say "it means"
would certainly be the case.

But, for example, it might also mean we weren't capable of putting
