I rarely write about politics on this blog (or ever), but every once in a while something comes up that I feel merits an exception.
While Obama is likely to veto this iteration of CISPA if it makes it past the Senate, your representatives need to know you don’t approve of them trying to find ways to bypass privacy policies and compromise your personal information on the internet. We don’t have the support of many major technology companies this time, because the bill is written to absolve them of legal responsibility. Real big of you, guys.
If you’re a US citizen, e-mail your Senators. Tell them why they shouldn’t vote in favor of it, or simply inform them of your opposition as a citizen whose concerns they are supposed to be representing. If you have time, look into how your House of Representatives voted and drop them a line as well. I’m sure those who opposed the bill would appreciate your support, and those who voted to pass it deserve an earful.
You might also remind your representatives they have other, more important things to worry about than supposed Chinese cyber threats, like oh, I don’t know… the economy? The shabby state of this country’s healthcare? Civil rights? Female reproductive freedom? Gun control? Take your pick, the list goes on.
There’s also a Change.org petition you can sign, and spreading the word is never a bad idea, but the most reliable way to make your voice heard is to contact members of congress directly.
The bottom picture is basically what I said to my rep. His press release was all, “Oh, CISPA doesn’t give the government the right to order companies to hand over info.”
And I was like, “….. I know, that wasn’t a problem to begin with, Google themselves said they comply with, like, 90% of requests. Why are you providing them with cover, why aren’t you instead working to secure my privacy, Mr. Personal-Rights-Conservative.” :I
Im making it rebloggable because its important and why not.
bad critique is never good, and a lot of people only give bad critiques
There are constructive critiques, then there are pointless opinions.
Shut up and reblog it.
He is my master.
Silva: “Patch I’m frightened, doesn’t he remind you of that crazy robopony that tried to kidnap me?”
Patch: ”I pledge allegiance to the lips of the rocky horror picture show, and to the decadence for which it stands. One movie under Richard O’brien on top of Patricia Quinn. With erotic nightmares, and sensual daydreams with sins of the flesh for all.”
Silva: *Stares blankly at Patch*
Patch: ”What? It’s a good movie.”
