If CISPA goes live ti will spawn yet another big, big, agency to "work" for US.
Homeland Security Agency seemd like a good idea in 2001. Now it is the biggest agency in the government which answers to no one.

There is nothing wrong with your computer, do not attempt to adjust the screen. We are now controlling the transmission and reception. We can deluge you with a thousand thoughts, or focus you on one obsession. We can shape your vision to anything that we can conceive, for the next hour...or lifetime. We shall control all that you see and hear. You are about to experience the awe and mystery, which reaches from the deepest inner mind, to our outer limits.

Apparently it passed with a "for the childrenz!", so the guys voting against this will be painted as ebil terrists who hate american freedoms. Good luck getting this one shot down guys

Not saying my local politicos are any better but at least we don't have a monolithic 2-but-actually-1 party structure, so even the smaller (hence hopefully more sane) groups get to have their voices heard.

Your comments would be more relevant, were you to add your location to your profile.

I found that list of the voting on this bill. Take a look, you might find reason to vote differently in the next election.

I used to think that McCarthy went after Hollywood to protect the American way, but now I realize that the problem was actually that he, like many other politicians, just wanted to form the American way as they saw fit, rather than as Hollywood did...not that one is any better than the other. Now with Hollywood and the government teaming up, they are becoming quite formidable.

Top 5 Biggest Concerns About CISPA

Quote:
The House on Thursday opted for an earlier-than-expected vote on the controversial CISPA bill, which now moves to the Senate. But what's the big deal with this bill? How might it affect the average Web user?

The Cyber Information Sharing & Protection Act (CISPA) is intended to allow for information-sharing between private companies and the government in the event of a cyber attack. In defending the bill recently, Facebook argued that it and other tech firms are limited in what they can share when a cyber scammer strikes.

CISPA: 4 Viewpoints You Should Hear

Quote:
Citing its effort to better protect American infrastructure from foreign attacks, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Cyber Information and Security Protection Act April 26 in spite of worries that consumer data privacy will be compromised if the bill eventually becomes law.

In an interesting and informative debate hosted by KQED public radio Joshua Johnson in San Francisco yesterday, several parties with strong opinions weighed in on the matter -- one that stirs up a plethora of questions.
