CISPA Back For Third Time
Shane Blume / 4 years ago
Apparently Congress leaders seem to want to keep Anti-Piracy, Censorship, and Internet Security on the top of their todo list. Though the people have told them that this is not something that they want, Congress seems to think otherwise. It is probably because Big Business keeps lining Congress members pockets trying to pass these ridiculous laws.
It has been rumored that California Senator Diane Feinstein and Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, are working on a ‘Companion’ bill for CISPA, both leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Both Senators are strong supporters of NSA mass surveillance.
Apparently the senators did not get the memo that CISPA failed to win support from the US Senate earlier this year, though after the issues with Edward Snowden, CISPA may have a bit more leverage. Though I don’t know how private companies sharing information about their users to the United States Government could have stopped the massive leak of information about the Government using the law to spy people.
CYBERSECURITY, CYBERSECURITY, CYBERSECURITY!!!
Yeah, I don’t really think so, right now in the cyber world you want to be very careful about what you type on the internet, in blogs, even in chat messages on facebook, as I feel you never know who really is watching. A few months ago I found a really funny site, which can be found HERE that gives you a random sentence for you to email, tweet or otherwise share to the internet to screw with NSA. Where you might get a quote like this
In one possible future, terrorists exploited the weapons grade plutonium the Doc stashed in his DeLorean.
Though there has been little information released about the new bill, we will need to keep you updated. Hopefully the actual text will be publicly released soon.
The Snowden Leaks about NSA is spying on people it makes me worry about what I am posting on the internet. Am I going to get someone knocking at my door from some no-named agency of the United States Government because I said something that they felt was some sort of threat?
Our private data needs to be kept PRIVATE, if we post something on the internet and it is not accessible from the random public, that makes it PRIVATE!
