, 2011THE BILLSponsored by _[Congressman ³The Ram´]Committee Action:AN ACT TO PROVIDE POKEMON FOR THE CITIZENS OF THE US TO INCREASEECONOMIC ACTIVITY AND PROMOTE WELL BEINGBe it enacted by the student model legislature of the United States of America.
 
Section 1: Definitions.Sustainability: The act represents not only creating them, but keeping them safe and alive to helpour economy prosper.Pokémon: Taken from the words ³Pocket Monsters´, Pokémon was created by Satoshi Tajiri in1996 and currently operates under the company ³Nintendo.´ Pokémon has become the secondmost lucrative and money making video game franchise in the history of the world, behind only³Mario.´ The concept of the Pokémon universe, in both the video games and the general fictionalworld of Pokémon, stems from the hobby of insect collecting, a popular pastime which Pokémonexecutive director Satoshi Tajiri-Oniwa enjoyed as a child. Players of the games are designatedas Pokémon Trainers, and the two general goals (in most Pokémon games) for such Trainers are:to complete the Pokédex by collecting all of the available Pokémon species found in the fictionalregion where that game takes place; and to train a team of powerful Pokémon from those theyhave caught to compete against teams owned by other Trainers, and eventually become thestrongest Trainer, the Pokémon Master.Section 2: PurposeThe purpose of this act would be simply to improve the state of the economy byintroducing a new product that is almost guaranteed to make money. Pokémon, as noted before,was the 2
nd
most revenue gaining video game franchise in the history of the world, which meansnot only is it popular (over the last 15 years, no video game has sold more than Pokémon)according to the British paper,
The Independent.
The creation of Pokémon would not only look into creating jobs ± it would create an economic boom that would be equal to some of the most prosperous times in history, all while improving the overall spirit of the country by getting themin touch with their younger sides.Section 3: ProvisionsAt first, money was going to be taken from HIV/AIDS cure research to put the money for this bill together. Why? Here¶s the rationale. We live in a capitalist country. If a cure for thatdisease would ever be created, because the creator would get a 6-year patent. That means theywould run into a monopoly on the drug business because not only would everyone rush to the
 
cure, all the other companies that provide drugs that just alleviated and didn¶t cure the disease ± would go out of business. Therefore, allowing a cure to be released, while morally andtheoretically sounds amazing, would be bad for the economy because some strong drugcompanies which employ a lot of people would collapse. In addition, the proposal is not that allthe money from the program would be cut ± that would come off as morally incorrect. Therefore,out of the 15.6 billion dollars that currently goes into HIV/AIDS research (

, I propose that we take 10 billion dollars out of that budget and add it to thePokémon research fund. In 2009, the PEPFAR (President¶s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief) wasrenewed to add 48 billion over 4 years to the AIDS/HIV research fund. So the money is alreadyallotted to be spent ± just noting that. That¶s where the bulk of the money comes from. The restof the money will be taken as follows: $2.5 million was spent on a poorly produced US Censuscommercial (please, spare us.). $35 million dollars spent on Medicare clinics that don¶t evenexist. $3 million on World of Warcraft study (if we can do that, we can turn it over to Pokémon.)The Minnesota Zoo got $600,000 dollars to create a ³Wolfquest´ video game. $20 million on a³Wooden bridge demonstration project.´ And $1 million to examine why people ride bikes towork. Add that up, and that¶s a total of $10.06 billion dollars going into this fund. This will bemore than enough to employ multiple scientists and researchers under the premise of creatingPokémon. There is also the belief that the creator of Pokémon, still a robust 45 years old and amulti-hundred billionaire, would be willing to contribute time and money to this project. It would be in the best interest to look into hiring him as head of this project.Here is some of the logic for creating such creatures. If we create Pokémon under our own watchin contrast to them naturally occurring in the games, we can control exactly which ones wecreate. Therefore, we don¶t have to create the more dangerous ones and this will keep the safetymatters under control. Some people claim that we have never had the means of creating suchPokémon. Recently, scientists have discovered a way to create bioluminescent trees ± in other words, trees that can glow in the dark naturally due to a non-harming bacteria that is infused intothem. Secondly, recently, scientists have discovered a bacteria that forms its DNA from arsenic.All life on Earth was thought to have been composed of six elements: carbon, hydrogen,nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur 
 
until now. This newly-discovered microorganism,called GFAJ-1, was found in Mono Lake, California. The building blocks used to create itsgenetic material contain arsenic. As NASA (the ones who made this discovery) have noted, this
