While our focus was on Boston and Texas, Congress was busy laying the foundation to steal our Internet privacy. The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, has been creeping up on the horizon for some time now, and is the greatest assault on our privacy our country has ever experienced.
CISPA is the national “cyber security law” Congress passed on April 18, 2013, by a vote of 288 to 127 at the same time as CNN, NBC, and FOX diverted our attention through their continuing coverage of the molestation of Boston and its surrounding communities. CISPA is much more cunning than its purported goal of “protecting” Americans. It is the next key building block liberals want to use to destroy our freedom. Included in this monstrosity is the provision giving your employer the right to request and get your Facebook password. If your boss wants to login to your Facebook account he will have every right to do so, and you can’t say a word or you can be fired. They defeated a last minute attempt to remove this provision from the bill by a 224-189 majority, but it stayed in the bill.
Most of us who are awake get our real news and information from the Internet. We communicate with one another, share videos and pictures with our family and friends and stay in touch with old friends and acquaintances through social media like Facebook and twitter. That’s hardly worthy of spying on. Yet, with CISPA, we lose any expectation of privacy.
