Mozilla condemns CISPA
This honestly was not something I expected but am still glad to hear.

Despite big name tech companies -- such as Facebook, Microsoft, and Oracle -- supporting the controversial Internet surveillance bill that passed in the House last week, Mozilla has come out against the legislation.
"While we wholeheartedly support a more secure Internet, CISPA has a broad and alarming reach that goes far beyond Internet security," the tech company wrote to Forbes reporter Andy Greenberg. "The bill infringes on our privacy, includes vague definitions of cybersecurity, and grants immunities to companies and government that are too broad around information misuse."
Mozilla is the first major tech company to unreservedly speak out against the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA.

I'm pretty sure for election reasons it will slip by the house somehow but then come before obama who has promised a veto, given that he did say the same thing with NDAA and then let it passed. I honestly would consider it a setup either way that whole deal goes now. It would be nice if the house could stop it, I dont' know why the only measures the government can agree on in the last three years are ones that screw our debt, or remove our freedoms. The news talks about how nothing gets passed but plenty of stuff is passing. It's all about spying on us and trying to manipulate markets and rates so the recession doesn't seem as bad as it is.
