I'm not stopping anybody from re-examining the various acts.

And your statement of the reason behind the DB act is only an opinion. Further, even if an act was created with questionable intentions, it may sometimes be kept or used for other purposes beyond the original. Thus, original intent alone is not a reason to keep or discard an act.

Robot treatment shouldn't be our baseline for human treatment. If it's pretty obvious that robots will get incrementally better, then it is as somebody else described it: competing directly with robots (and 3rd world labor) will become a "race to the bottom". That's competing with automation, not leveraging it to make our life better.

if North Korea was capable of this sort of hack they've got more tempting targets to use that capability on.

Such as? A commercial company is probably a far easier target than a military institution. And maybe some of the military breaches we've heard about were from them. Many breaches are not even made public.

When I ask conservatives what Federal laws to cut, most of them don't have a clue. The few that bother to research often recommend cutting rules that create health, safety, or pollution risk for workers or customers.

Becoming a 3rd world country to compete with the 3rd world doesn't sound like a good plan to me.

I'm giving you the opportunity to give substantive suggestions here again...
