    Americans please email your government representatives and tell them this bill is a sexually active woman. They seem to hate those. It'll get thrown out in like five minutes.

    As I said with SOPA and PIPA when they were squashed... they will win because they can keep reintroducing legislation until they win. Eventually people will get sick of it and just lay back and accept it.

    Coincidentally, thats also how these politicians get laid.

    edit: Heres a link where you can tell congress that this bill is a sexually active woman.

    http://act2.freepress.net/sign/cispa/?akid=3437.9192936.rKkpRP&rd=1&t=5

    And and another link that describes what this bill actually does and how politicians are saying its not SOPA and totally different bro.

    This is precisely why we need a movment to proactively create legislation protecting internet user rights instead of just reacting to every Tom, Dick and Harry the MPAA throws at Congress.

    ffs. I thought Obama was talking about vetoing this? Oh wait, he pulled the same stunt with the NDAA (National Defence Authorisation Act) and let congress pass that too.

    It's not signed into law yet. Only congress passed it. The senate still needs to do the same before Obama can even decide to veto it or not when they present it to him to sign it.

    Obama still is saying he will veto the bill if it comes down to that.

    So there is still that small hope, because obviously the senate is hopeless.

    I don't believe Obama will Veto this. It'll be contrary to all his actions thus far when it comes to policy on national security and civil rights.

    Obama pledges to look really super reluctant when signing bill into law and then make half-apologetic half-accusatory sorry-I-was-totally-forced-into-a-corner statement.

    Will still win election because come on, Romney?
