      I’m against it. The unacceptable aspect is that is gives companies immunity from legal action for information they share. That literally means they can break the law and get away with it. The basic idea isn’t so bad, but it needs to be implemented with strict accountability to make sure privacy is protected.

    Are Republicans Trying To Pass The Online Version Of PATRIOT Act ? I’m Talking About CISPA? That’s a law that allows private user data(any data) sharing between government and a company and the company can not be sued for doing this and feds don’t need any warranty to collect the data.

    Let’s talk about small government here:
    ___________ AYE___NAY
    Democratic___42 __140
    Republican ___206___28
    it also includes real-time data sharing/monitoring.
    @Bad Girl Conservative: What is that you do online ?

    • Curator says:

      I’m going to admit it, I’m ashamed of them for that.

      The government doesn’t need to know everything I do online, and trust me, they don’t.

      EDIT:

      If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you. 🙂

    Has Your Mind Ever Been Blown By An Advertisement? So a commercial on tbs had something like “Cispa” or a similar term. I really didn’t pay attention to what the narrator was saying, but the girl in the commercial kept putting on many different outfits and such. She could have been any of them and you’d never think otherwise.

    And as such, my question for you is have you ever had your mind blown by an advertisement?
    Yeah, the Shamwow did blow my mind at first. Then a parody of it went beyond that.
