I am not so sure about that. I am pretty sure Congress has their brains disabled on a mass scale, but they can still come up with plenty of stupid things to do!
Seriously though, this may cause a serious problem to people that are U.S. citizens and work overseas and regularly bring back client information and data on laptops, i.e. consultants. Does the company whose valuable info you have on your laptop have any recourse if their proprietary data is basically taken by thugs at our own border?
I wonder how difficult it must be for our politicians to not hurt themselves carrying around such large brains that think this stuff up!
