CISPA Passes House! Stop it in Senate!

In a move that should surprise virtually no one, our lying, cheating, scheming den of whores and thieves (aka the US House of Representatives) passed CISPA on 4/26/2012 by a vote of 248-168.

CISPA

We already fought one revolution over this type of nonsense!

If you don’t know what CISPA is, please take a few moments to acquaint yourself with it, either by googling it or clicking on any of the links at the bottom of the article. In essence, it gives the government carte blanche access to the online activity of anyone using the internet in the USA. I am running out of ways to say it: TYRANNY IS AT OUR DOORSTEP. You can choose to act or bury your head in the sand. I, for one, intend to go down fighting. The absolute LEAST you can do would be the following:

1. Go to Twitter and retweet this (or any) CISPA article using hashtags #cispa #stopcispa and #policestate. Get these topics trending.

2. Find out how your US Representative voted on CISPA. Then contact them in any way possible (Twitter, email, phone) and either thank them for voting no or disparage them for voting yes. If using Twitter, please use the hashtags as mentioned above.

3. Contact your US Senator and urge them to vote NO on CISPA.

4. Encourage all your friends, coworkers, and family to do the same!

Although the White House has threatened a veto of this bill, one cannot automatically assume that it will. (see the NDAA.) Killing it in the Senate is our best shot to stop it. Get involved! Links below.

    Thanks so much for this…I have been doing all that I can to promote this on my blog, my Twitter, my Facebook, however I have a tiny megaphone! My reach is just a few thousand people…and if this bill passes it will affect MILLIONS.

    I can’t understand the PUBLIC APATHY surrounding this issue. The media has been complicit in completely HIDING this story. I have also petitioned my supposedly “liberal” news source, The Young Turks, and they are not giving this issue the wall to wall coverage it deserves.

    I am terrified that we are fighting a losing battle, however, I will do everything I can to prevent this…as you say, I will go down fighting for this!

    OFF-TOPIC P.S. I am also very involved with SAVING THE BEES – another issue that is being ignored…the SAVE THE BEES petition is about to reach a mere 1 million signatures, and is getting virtually NO MEDIA COVERAGE AT ALL….do people not care about our world, the food chain, having flowers and fruits…and what will Pooh Bear eat, if poisons created by greedy humans kill the bees?

    Here’s a link to the Bee Petition: http://www.avaaz.org/en/bayer_save_the_bees/?cl=1761954522&v=13897

  2. Thank you providing these links. I have written and email thinking my Representative for her vote. I will write both Senators, and likely call them, too. Thanks so much.
