CISPA passes. **** your internet freedoms.

he US House of Representatives has once again passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which died in the Senate last year, by a margin of 288 to 127 after two days of debate.

Over several hours, House opinion on the bill boiled down to whether the redesigned CISPA successfully addressed criticism from civil libertarians, and whether the threat of cyberattacks was grave enough to justify overriding lingering concerns. Representative Candice Miller (R-MI), a CISPA supporter, painted a dire picture of North Korean hackers taking down the US power grid, and Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV) warned that "our nation is under attack."

Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) went so far as to urge passage with a comparison to the Boston Marathon bombings: "In the case of Boston they were real bombs, in this case they're digital bombs. And these digital bombs are on their way."
What is CISPA?

Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other Internet companies and e-mail providers will be prohibited from making legally binding promises to protect your privacy, thanks to a vote this afternoon in the U.S. House of Representatives.

CISPA means Internet and other companies will be "completely exonerated from any risk of liability" if they open their databases with confidential customer information to the feds and even private-sector firms.

CISPA is controversial because it overrules all existing federal and state laws by saying "notwithstanding any other provision of law," including a privacy policy or terms of service agreement, companies may share certain confidential customer information "with any other entity, including the federal government." It would not, however, require them to do so.

CISPA's information sharing regime allows the transfer of vast amounts of data, including sensitive information like Internet records or the content of e-mails, to any agency in the government."

I, for one, welcome our new federal overlords! Did I mention that I just donated all my guns to charity and joined the Democratic party?

I saw this shit coming several years ago. We are on the road to 1930's Germany.

The dollar is closer to collapsing than many might think.

... I mean, I don't have any guns and I too, am a Democrat! Go Obama! You're doing an amazing job, sir.

Just goes to show that Republicans are capable of doing very stupid things.

This happens with every unpopular piece of shit bill, it gets handily defeated then snuck in usually during/around a crisis.

Nice to see the corporate overlords getting what they want. Thankfully, Obama says he will veto it if it gets to his desk.

Really? I had not heard that. Hopefully you are right and Obama pulls out the veto pen (well, actually I think there is a pen and stamp....but you know what I mean)

Obama, please veto this pile of garbage back to the stone-age.

FYI, the part I didn't talk about it, is that the wife of the senator trying to push this through is part of a huge private cyber security firm.
