    It only passed in the house so far. It still has to go through senate and then the president.

    Whatevs, if this doesn't pass they'll just make another one, again and again, until it does. The bill isn't the source of the problem.

    They are 30 votes short of the 2/3 necessary to override the veto. Who here wants to play "lets piss off the president that is looking like he has an excellent change at re-election"? I don't think they'll get it

    I wonder which congressmen voted for it and which voted against...

    considering how these things usually go, (and that Republicans have a majority in the house) I'm guessing it was roughly along party lines (usually is)

    which brings up another problem, this sounds like Big Government to me, aren't they supposed to hate the government getting involved in any aspect of anything?

    There are laws that prevent bills from being presented a second time. All they can do is make a weaker version of it and give it a different title.

    Insanity: CISPA Just Got Way Worse, And Then Passed On Rushed Vote: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20...t-got-way-worse-then-passed-rushed-vote.shtml

    "Previously, CISPA allowed the government to use information for "cybersecurity" or "national security" purposes. Those purposes have not been limited or removed. Instead, three more valid uses have been added: investigation and prosecution of cybersecurity crime, protection of individuals, and protection of children. Cybersecurity crime is defined as any crime involving network disruption or hacking, plus any violation of the CFAA."

    That information is in public record, it is easily retrieved. Just get the bill number and look it up.

    Protection of individuals and protection of children?

    Give me a break, WTF is this, the internet version of the patriot act?

    And all of this on election year, too many interest involved for sure.

    Yep. Society's gotten too wimpy on their own kids. Like the saying: "Spoil the rod, spare the child." I do believe in it. Those who would call it child abuse, are absurd. Do people think the parents are going to flip out? Are the gonna go absolutely bonkers, and beat their OWN children to kingdom come? Maybe all those damn pansies think we actually eat our children. Hell take them away from us, if we are so irresponsible! The nuns at the orphanage where I was raised, smacked my palms, but I turned out all right... I think. In any case, apologies for the rant. Oh yeah, and CISPA is hammered shit. Hope it doesn't pass.

    Chris Chan is what you get if you have a child who never gets consequences for unacceptable behaviour.

    The point of using pain as discipline is to associate doing the wrong thing with the consequences of getting a clipped ear, smack on the backside or hit on the hand with a wooden spoon, or ruler.
    It goes on until they are old enough to understand why.

    You got a whoopin for staying outside and wandering around after dark because there are strangers who do things to lone little kids, which are not good.

    You get a whooping for playing with the stove because you'll burn yourself, same with playing with matches.

    and so on..

    the results are evident today, current tweens and teenagers are self absorbed shitbags that think they are important for no other reason than being alive, and are all about getting what they want and not doing what they want to do.
    Essentially they will never be employable because they are never willing to get off their ass and work for the things they want.
    Pretty much, what do you expect? that this Law is actually about who it claims to be benefitting?

    Your justifying manifesto was more interesting than your post.

    Also, the difference between GOP and Democrats is, the GOP acts as a coordinated entity. The Democratic party has never been able to do that.

    I don't think I'd want the Internet in my house if I had children

    what if you witnessed your own daughter, all GOTIS'd... That would warrant a fair bit more than the wooden spoon approach I'd say. More the postnatal abortion.

    Damn, you nailed down my thoughts to a science.

    You got a good head on your shoulders, youngster. You do old-timers like me proud. Here, have a nickle, go buy yourself some candy.

    Whoops i meant to say Don't want to do anything they don't want to do.
    a Modern teenager asked to take out the Garbage will just sit on his ass playing videogames.
    The only thing keeping the place from becoming a stinking hole with dirty clothes everywhere empty crisp packets and other trash and unwashed dishes and mould growing in every sink basin are the parents.

    Apparently even though i need help with finding employment, i am better at doing things such as cleaning, cooking and organizing than most other people my age.

    Do they really live on Mcdonalds Taco Bell and Pizza hut?

    @Aroukar a nickle? that like a 5 cent piece? heh, there's nothing you can buy with 5 cents anymore.
    i hate how shops always write their prices as 99c or 1.99 or 5.99 or 16.99
    it's zero cents and one dollar up.
    there's no pennies here either, they just do it to make people think it's cheaper than it really is at first glance.
