U.S. House passes CISPA ;(

Quote:
The United States House of Representatives has voted to pass the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), talk of which has swept the Internet over the past few weeks. The House vote was moved up to Thursday night, and CISPA passed as 248 members of Congress voted for the bill and 168 voted against. The bill is sponsored by Representatives Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Maryland), and it now faces further modifications in the Senate if it is to avoid being vetoed by the White House. President Barack Obama has indicated that he intends to veto the bill if it makes it to his desk, noting that as it is written now, the legislation would allow “broad sharing of information with governmental entities without establishing requirements for both industry and the government to minimize and protect personally identifiable information.” The American Civil Liberties Union issued a statement following the vote. “Cybersecurity does not have to mean abdication of Americans’ online privacy,” said ACLU legislative counsel Michelle Richardson. “As we’ve seen repeatedly, once the government gets expansive national security authorities, there’s no going back. We encourage the Senate to let this horrible bill fade into obscurity.”

It still has to go through another stage and the Obama Administration is threating to veto it as soon as it hits his desk. so I will Hope for Obama to veto it like he said? fingers crossed for the sake of Freedom and anti socialism.

There should be a law disallowing acronyms while they are at it.

How about the fact that the titles of the bills/laws rarely decribes the contents accurately. So many fall for these catchy titles, especially as it's the titles that are referred to in speeches and soundclips. Worse than headlines.

I would like to see a list of who voted for and against it, so that I will know who to vote for or against at the next election.

What the president really meant to say is he intends to veto the bill if it makes it to his desk, unless someone contributes millions to his re-election campaign to suggest him to reconsider.

Then he'll sign it... but not on this desk... on the coffee table.
