First SOPA, now CISPA

This could actually be worse than SOPA according to the article. I hope that Obama will finally use his veto power on this bill if it passes the Senate.

It took a debate that stretched to nearly seven hours, and votes on over a dozen amendments, but the U.S. House of Representatives finally approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act on April 26.

Passions flared on both sides before the final vote on CISPA, which cleared the House by a comfortable margin of 248 to 168.

CISPA would "waive every single privacy law ever enacted in the name of cybersecurity," Rep. Jared Polis, a Colorado Democrat and onetime Web entrepreneur, said during the debate. "Allowing the military and NSA to spy on Americans on American soil goes against every principle this country was founded on."

The senate probably wont pass it. And Obama said he was going to veto it unless there is outside oversight. But he is known to cave quite easily.

And now for my rant....

My problem is, just like SOPA and the detainment bill that people are still up in arms over, of all of the things our representatives in Washington hustle on, is to pass this kind of shit. Like if there were nothing more urgent on the agenda or that the public is hollering for.

Of course special interest groups promised big campaign contributions to our motherfukers in Washington for his bill. And if lobbyists want something, our motherfuckers in Washington put everything else aside and jump! No need to tell them how high, they give it their ALL for lobbyists. They jump as high as they can. They will die trying to jump as high as possible for the lobbyists.

And the WORST part about this all, is our motherfuckers in Washington are too stupid to even know what they are jumping for. I saw an interview a few months back with some of the Washington sponsors for SOPA, and they were so painfully ignorant about the bill they were jumping for, and they were so completely computer illiterate that I wanted to both laugh and cry at how ridiculous our system has become. They didn't know the implications of bill or what it all meant, becasue these bills are written by the lobbyists themselves, and are then given to our congresspeople along with promises for big campaign contributions and a cushy job with them when they leave office.

We desperately need lobbyists out of Washington. We need them banned permanently. And need to impose harsh prison terms in Guantanamo or the depths of hell to any motherfuckers caught taking campaign contributions from lobbyist. Lobbyists and a painfully unqualified congress is why we are fucked.

Sometimes I just need to this stuff out of my system.

^^Amen...peeps don't realize that congresscritters don't even bother to read a lot of the legislation that they vote on at the behest of their corporate masters. Guantanamo is too good for the bastids.

I don't even know what the hell they pay their staffs for other than making their spa appointments and keeping their constituents at bay.
