Let's fuck these fuckers who are fucking us at every turn.
Bastards... this will not stand up in the Supreme Court.
That's probably just going to wind up making this bill harder to pass. I don't get it.
Because the Supreme Court is always known for reason and sanity.
So let's just sit around doing nothing and wait for this to take care of itself.
The house has passed it
OVERNIGHT TECH: House passes CISPA cybersecurity bill
House OKs CISPA cybersecurity bill despite veto threat
White House says the bill fails to protect Americans' privacy
The House is made of snapping, drooling chihuauas. Maybe the Senate can think.
Leaving it for Obama to work out a compromise between the snapping and drooling factions.
Hmm... in an election year, Obama might actually do something that favors The People.
Too much for me to hope for... but stranger things have happened.
You're probably right, but this just works to illustrate who much the "peoples" government gives a fuck about the people.
This thread is giving me NDAA deja vu... "that'll never get passed"...."Surely the Whitehouse will veto it"
As for the Supreme Court....we are talking about the same Supreme Court that ruled that money is speech and is therefore protected by the first amendment... a bastion of reason
Sheeit, I've been saying a new revolution's been due since 1984. Things is, you have types like Obama teaching Consitutional law, who probably leave out mention of what it calls for in the event of a government which against against the will of The People.
Cispa approved by House but critics urge Senate to block 'horrible' bill
Meh, people really underestimate the impact of public opinion on public policy these days.
Maybe, or maybe its just that the people that really understand whats going on lost faith in the masses.
I don't know....
It's more that the people who think they really understand what's going on ignore the role that the masses play.
Interesting. Care to expand on this?
I know what's going on.
Sure: FACEBOOK, of all people, are lobbying hard FOR this bill to pass.
To fuck you up, it's (too much ?) obvious.
Rather than leaving the social aspects to society, government tries to take them over. The people who run the government don't trust us to live our own lives. They use that to justify passing ever more onerous laws covering ever more expanding realms of our lives. "Well, they are too stupid to do the right thing so will make them do right."
The micromanaging will continue until morale improves there are no choices left
"Whatever is not allowed is forbidden" is the end result
What Zuckerberg's fucking problem?
Meanwhile, I continue to refuse to use it.
This is typical behavior. Once a corporation is big enough, it becomes a target for politicians. The business can either play footsies or get noisily investigated. All this ensures nice campaign contributions from the corporations, which then get to exclude new start up with onerous business regulations designed solely and only to exclude new competitors from getting a toehold in the business.
see: Standard Oil, AT&T, IBM, Microsoft and many others.
Thank you, without this answer I would never have known that FACEBOOK is the root of all evil. Unfortunately this answer doesn't answer the question I asked.
And your question was what?
No, that would be Texas.
But isn't too late since the House approved CISPA ?
three hurdles need to pass:
House, Senate, President.
Lobbying hard could still make a difference in the Senate.
if Obama wants to encourage the littlepeople, he still could.
no way CISPA would get 2/3 of both to override a veto.
I suppose, but me personally, I have no faith in the intelligence of the masses so.... you know. :|
I have more faith in the masses, who are perhaps not the brightest, but at least honest; than the highly-educated assholes who decide on the behalf of the People how their money is to be spent. Look what they've done, so far...

The largest domain registrar on the Internet - GoDaddy.com - was taken offline on Monday, shutting down thousands and potentially million of users from websites hosted on affected servers.
