CISPA Is SOPA & PIPA On Steroids!

Stop CISPA Now! 
H.R. 3523: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act or CISPA was introduced on November 30, 2011.  According to PC World on April 13, 2012, “the bill will be up for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives the week of April 23. Unlike SOPA and PIPA, CISPA has no close relative in the U.S. Senate. Two larger cybersecurity bills, S.2151 and S.2105, have been proposed, but haven't made it out of committee.

The biggest problem with this particular bill is that it is VAGUE It is soo vague and poorly written that a sheet of pegboard has fewer holes and I thought the Patriot Act was full of holes!   What this means is that every hole allows some Czar, Dept Head, Congress person, President or even some techno peon to abuse the powers in the bill to the point of tyranny!

Please write, call, tweet, wink or whatever every one of your House Representatives NOW.  You can easily do so from the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) Action Site @  and read about other action methods @

This is an election year so, whatever you do VOTE.  And be sure to vote for a candidate that is:  Of the people (US citizens), by the people, for people and NOT of A Political Party, by A Political Party, for A Political Party.
