Mutually Assured Destruction


You might remember from the 80's the term M.A.D or Mutually Assured Destruction.  It was the military doctrine that advocated the full deployment of a nuclear arsenal toward an enemy who was equally armed and would behave in the same way.  If one party moved against the other, it guaranteed that both parties were annihilated.  It acted as a great deterrent.  It was a strategy that kept us alive during the Cold War.

After tonight's experience passing HB116 on the House floor and HB497 on the Senate floor, I am starting to think that some folks in our Legislature have served time as military strategists.
