Here it is folks. The latest attack on the information superhighway; CISPA. This bill is currently in congress. If you like the internet and don't want it to change I URGE you to contact your representatives and tell them you are against this bill.

Fighting the good fight,
Captain Planet

I found out tonight they are voting on this on Monday. Call your representatives and tell them you are against this nefarious legislation.

Might be too late- It passed the first vote but a pretty wide margin.

Bunch of scum bags. I called Tuesday and spoke with jim renacci's office and the girl on the phone said, "Everybody that has been calling thinks it will infringe on your liberties, but it won't."

So everybody that called was against it, yet this shill voted for it. I guess your representatives don't represent you anymore if "everybody calling" was against it, yet he voted for it.

Well, love letter to him has been sent, I suggest if you are unhappy with your "representatives" vote you do the same.

It is off to the senate now, now I get two phone calls to make daily.

Time to start going to ANY town hall meetings and make it known that the representatives and senators had better start working FOR us and not just controlling us. They need to stop acting like we're all uneducated or worse, stupid. Complain about how things are going and some start by saying "What you need to understand...", "You don't understand..." and cocking their head to one side, saying "Look....".

What THEY need to understand is how much it costs to be a citizen. A soft shell taco at Taco Bell in $1.29. Really? Why? Because corn, transporation fuel and energy prices have gone through the roof, that's freakin' why! They need to understand that when we, as business owners sense major uncertainty about how things are going, we won't spend extra to hire people who may end up being laid off or terminated after a short time. ringThe hiring process costs a company quite a bit of money and those who have never managed people or owned a company seem completely oblivious to this fact. Hire people with a criminal record? Nice theory. Do customers want convicted people in their house, doing ANYTHING? Not usually. Can a company get bonding and low rates for insurance if they hire convicted felons? Nope! Can they hold public office? Sometimes. That says a lot.

To be fair to any possible intent of the Bill, the US and other countries are getting their a$$es hacked off by criminal enterprises in Russia, China, N Korea, the Middle East and evreywhere else imaginable, so in the cases where the IP address is from a foreign country, I think it's OK but when someone is tech-savvy enough to make the data hop around the world a few times, it's harder when the sites are secured. The desire to have a World-Wide Web makes it prone to bad people exploiting any weakness, whether inherent, or created by them.
