The House of Representatives has approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act with a vote count of 248-168. The bill is now headed for the Senate. President Barack Obama will be able to sign or cancel it pending Senate approval. Additional amendments have been added to the bill. Apart from cyber and national security purposes, the bill would now allow the Government to use private information obtained through CISPA for the investigation and prosecution of “cybersecurity crime." #StopCISPA

- Shared...and I'd -1 if I could :( From the land of the free...to the land of the micro-managed. Such a shame.Apr 26, 2012
- Sneaky bastards were actually scheduled to vote on it tomorrow, but they opted to move it to today.
They knew that they had to get around 'The People' to have things their way ... so much for the Constitution.Apr 26, 2012
- Let's hope they stick to their guns, and do what's right. This is nuts ...Apr 26, 2012
- the easiest way to fix this problem is NOT to re-elect the politicos who supported it and voted to pass it, make a list of them and share the list, we will get the word outApr 26, 2012
- If they use this to prosecute anything they are seriously violating basic rights. I don't want to be spied on. I don't do anything wrong, I work hard, pay taxes, and just want them to do their fucking JOB and make sure that we are healthy so if we (the people) ever really need protection (which unfortunately due to them and general idiocy, we probably will) we can all get together and defend ourselves. I'm sick of this mindset that has been driven into children that it's better to be better than others, and that everyone else is wrong. That the kids run the households and keep the parents distracted. That the middle class is now as poor as I was when I was a child. That we're fist fed bullshit entertainment to keep our eyes averted, and then whatever news we do see is acted out so beautifully to make sure we're all against one another.
I'm not a republican. I'm not a democrat. I'm not libertarian. I view ALL sides and when I see something that will make sure my children's lives will be better, I act on that. I'm a citizen of the United States and I want my Government to take care of us like they are supposed to.
Sorry I'm ranting this shit pisses me off.Apr 26, 2012
- Dennis Rehberg promised me in person he would oppose these types of bills... im proud to admit he did as he said and voted nay.Apr 27, 2012
