The laws already exist:

Disturbing the peace,
Misappropriation of public funds,
Prohibition on unfunded mandates.

What's lacking is prosecutors, judges, and juries who 
see the politicians as getting in the way of the 
statesmen and the people.

To drag this back towards On Topic, it seems to me
that the ntp folks might be petitioned to write up and 
submit to the Congress, a paper requesting them to 
keep their danged hands in one-another's pockets, 
and leave the clock alone.

albeit not in those precise words...

While my Libertarian ideals agree with you on the fact that
politicians live to legislate, but statemen do not, asking
for such jail time for doing such would require yet another
law.  ;->

Seriously now, GMT everything.  I have always GMT'd the RTC
-- especially with the common "double jump" that Windows used
to pull on me (until they fixed that).  But I started GMT'ing
all systems over the last few years and have been running
things according to GMT time.

I only setup locale on an individual user-base now.  That
minimizes such legislation non-sense (among other things).
