Just now. 74 to 21.
I posted about Orwell, Rand, and CISA last week.
The data in question would come from private industry, which mines everything from credit card statements to prescription drug purchase records to target advertising and tweak product lines. Indeed, much of it is detailed financial and health information the government has never had access to in any form. The bill’s proponents said the data would be “anonymized”.
Cisa would create a program at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through which corporations could share user data in bulk with several US government agencies. In exchange for participating, the companies would receive complete immunity from Freedom of Information Act requests and regulatory action relating to the data they share. DHS would then share the information throughout the government.
Well. All I can say is thank heaven those freedom-loving small-government Republicans are saving us from the excesses of those Eeeeevil big-government Democrats. Whatever would we do without them?
Bummer about that. However I kinda got some good news, although nothing we can use ourselves.
It’s from WND, so if you want to, you can just delete this entry.
I just read this at a different site. It is very disturbing. I fear the time is coming that a line in the sand will be drawn and not by Obama.
The ruling elite just don’t get it. They continue to make these laws and take freedom from us and think that we are just going to sit here like sheep forever. I hope not.
I used to think we would have a leader rise up and we would take back our country. I don’t think we are going to have a leader anymore. I think that people as a whole are going to rise up as one and say Enough!
I pray it is not too late.

I go back to Prague.
What are these small government republicans you speak of? I don’t recall seeing any. Maybe they are hiding behind the Bushes?
This is outrageous, if hardly unexpected. I have just written to my congressman (Trey Gowdy) urging him to vote against this bill when it comes before the House. I have little hope of that happening, however; he’s pretty much in the tank for whatever the security apparatus wants to do.
Here’s a list of the traitors:
