CISPA, aims to make it easier for government agencies and private industry to share information about cyber threats. But all that information-sharing worries privacy advocates and civil libertarians, who say the bill lacks safeguards against abuse.

CISPA is just another fascist wolf in the sheep's clothing of combating terrorist vermin. Those powers could all too easily be turned against "undesirables" such as homosexuals, feminists, Mensans, and even Care2 supporters. The camel's nose is in the tent, and it needs to be thumped - HARD!

Thanks Cal. Any and all of those who share supposedly private information are frightening because of the potentials of personal invasion. The initial information comes from the original informer - us-. We often have no choice but to give up privacy to Federal, State and local authorities and/or voluntarily give it to petition sites, for example, so they can supposedly confirm our signatures as true persons to be legitimate. From any of those sources, there are multitudes of informers, happy to pass on your information for a small percentage of possible future profits. That includes those we see as the 'white hats' or good persons/organizations.

Today, two persons appeared at my door, uninvited, informing me that I was soon to be 65, needed their companies information and support to make the best choices about Medicare, supplement health insurance, as well as possible life insurance, long-term care and home mortgage insurance in case of whatever. They said they didn't have my phone numbers (or they would have called first) but certainly knew where my home is. Who gave them that information? Take your pick of informants - any, and/or all of them, beginning with me, the governing bodies of this country and the parasites of our technologically advanced communications. Everybody's got to make a living somehow - right? I don't like it but it seems we can't get away from our lack of privacy any more than we can get away from plastic or hydrocarbon addictions. We are stuck.

This is scary stuff, and people need to really keep track of their representatives, and see and sound of if yours was one that voted YES in this bill.

@Lin...HOLY SHIT!!!

CISPA, SOPA, PIPA, OPEN, ACTA, and the DMCA have another name: Minitrue. George Orwell's Ministry of Truth that disseminated propaganda and outright lies, and controlled the Oceana citizens' information accesses. We don't need or want Big Brother watching what we do online! Repeal DMCA, scrap CISPA, SOPA, PIPA, OPEN, and ACTA!
