You congress are idiots. I work for central power station and not one stupid thing you are saying is true. We DO NOT have any computer that run any of are nuclear facilities. They are maunaly operated and the contols are in concealed environments. Are office's are off site.
How careless do you think we are?
What next congress, tell everyone you can build an a-bomb online?
Did you dumb congress people even go to school. We are f*ckin tied of hear you dumb mouth talking technology you know sh*t about!
You have not even given an ACTUAL ATTACK SITUATION or any threat whatever the hell your broad CISPA bill means, other than deem anybody a threat for their private data to be made open?
Put some real FACT in your stupid big mouths, instead of the B.S. CYBER HOCUS POCUS coming out of it.

I have called my representatives. They are masters of lip service. They know what we want to hear, and are willing to say it - no matter what their true stance on an issue is.
Trust me, it's not the number of calls or tweets they receive that matters... it's the power and influence of the person on the other end that does. One phone call from the head of a super PAC has far more influence than a million tweets from the constituency. The elected officials know that the electorate has a VERY short term memory... and even that can be undone with an advertising sweep.

Our government does not have the authority to pass any law that will protect the entire world. Nor does it even have the authority to pass any law that will protect the U.S. FROM the rest of the world (short of closing down international access to the internet - as China is considering). All it can do is pass laws that apply to entities that exist within our borders.

Part of the issue with CISPA, after reading the Bill, it's amendments and the way it's tied to a 1947 Act, it rely's on passing the Bill, and after the affect Homeland security writing disclosure procedures. Makes on more than a little curious.

In other words, he admits they currently aren't even doing a "good job" protecting that same personal data from being used to exploit end users... just "...the best we can..."
(Nevertheless, I still oppose CISPA.)
I have no doubt that the IT industry will do more damage to personal privacy than the government ever will. In fact, they already are.
