Indeed. That's what I really hate about bill structures. You can add so much poop behind the bill that as long as you make the bill title and name "Help our troops!" act you can add pretty much add dictator level stuff in there and get away with it.

And even if there weren't tons of corporate lobbying to get the internet butchered beyond all belief, the government would certainly want to just to make sure they can spy on us at all times. Because, after all, they want to keep an eye out for TERRORISTS *winkwinknudgenudgesaynomore* Because, after all, if you're not a terrorist you have nothing to hid and should willingly let the government search through everything you've ever looked at. The direction this country is going in is just awful.

Just because I'm not hiding any convoluted plans for explosive attacks doesn't mean I want to make my life an open book. Giving the government access to view everything people do on the internet is just a negative step toward communism.

I think he means more of China's brand of "Communism" rather than actual communism itself.

'AT&T, Facebook, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, Symantec and Verizon" all support CISPA.

Facebook activity would decrease if people lost the ability to share most websites over it.

Internet activity in general would decline. This isn't good for an overwhelming majority of online businesses. If only they could see the big picture.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the companies supporting it haven't considered everything.

I wasn't expecting Microsoft. :/ We're definitely screwed this time.

Hilarious how none of those are media companies. They just want to be able to spy on us.

I really don't see how anyone can find this lawful. At all.

Microsoft and Facebook are probably going to be what does us in. If CISPA loses their support though, we'll have a shot.

I hope Anonymous is ready for this.

That sounds epic, like one last great ride of the cavalry. Anon's final battle against the government.

That said, I think this will get shot down and they'll just revive it yet again later on.

Let's all cheer on Anon as they fight for free internets!

Anyway, what is to bet they are putting this through again to try to distract us from something they are trying to have pass under the radar?
