FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
WHAT THE FLYING FUCK
I fucking hate my county. Someone fucking start a revolution. We need to kick these people out of office NOW
They do know they are pretty much aggrivating the entire world if they use the bill to it's fullest extent right?
I bet they aren't going to give a shit if these "cyber security crimes" are commited in the US or abroad.
Why just why!
Gotta love corruption. But y'all be livin in a free country n shit. Dont forget that. Its a democracy!
The fourth amendment applies online too; it applies everywhere.
I still want to know how this means corruption. The government won't waste resources just Ito fuck you over for no reason. They'll obviously need to be suspicious of you in the first place or it would be expenive as hell
Seriously though, I don't see why they even need to vote on it if the president has already said that he's going to decline it's legalization. What's the point?
Pest country in the wurld.
I don't know why, but when I read the OP I thought of this:
"Right to the fourth amendment: suspended."
GUYS! JUST SIGN EVERY FUCKING PETITION.
ALL THE PETITIONS.
Let's nuke Hollywood. Who needs movies, we won't have these laws passing anymore, and no more corrupt politicians!
Goodbye freedoms, hello big brother.
Even if these authoritarian surveillance based bills which pave the way for privacy invasion of regular citizens (and those in other countries!) with no warrant or need for proof-based suspicion made information available that saved a couple hundred people (long shot, I know!), I still don't think it would make it worthwhile allowing the breaching of the private lives of millions on a whim.
It's about time for decentralisation of power methinks - check out Switzerland and their cantons - it's not perfect but it seems a damn sight better than any other "democratic" nation state.
Reading this thread makes my brain hurt. This is just as bad as YouTube or Fox News comments. I'm starting to question the intellectual ability of many of the members who have just posted here. Many seem to lack rudimentary logical brain processes that allow them to make coherent decision.
You're all a bunch of paranoid idiots. It's still got to go through Obama, who has personally stated multiple times he'd veto it, the Senate, which probably doesn't even know how to pass a bill anymore, and the Supreme court, which was created specifically to block stuff like this.
I'm kind of curious how many people have read the bill, let alone keep thinking that the government is going to go batshit with it and imprision everyone they find torrenting LMFAO's next album.
Just proves how completely messed up our country is. Our generation is represented in government by a bunch of corrupt 50-somethings who wouldn't know what a mouse is if your slapped them with one, let alone how the internet works.
Hey America, please stop.
The Rest of the World.
Lets send out all the anti-social maniacs on to the streets! That'll do the world good.
I feel sorry for Americans who have to put up with all these proposed internet bills.
Vote for SATIB today! (Stop All These Internet Bills).
Even if it does not pass, these laws will affect international companies who reside in US and that is not good for consumers all over the world. A win in america strengthens media corporations, resistance only makes their penises harder.
Two-party political system: Check.
Trillion dollar debt: Check.
Allowing the population to own guns: Check.
Passing idiotic laws that nobody wants and pisses everyone off: Fucking Stupid
this is a country where it's common practice to send expensive heavily armed SWAT teams to people's homes because they may or may not be growing a certain type of plant and/or be in possession of it's bud trimmings
Does the American congress consist of a bunch of apes that votes on exactly what the lobby tells them to?
at this point an up-and-coming politician could literally make a campaign promise to force a bill through that expressly forbids bills like these from ever happening and he'd win the president election instantly
you guys should just amend the constitution with a "thou shalt not fuck with the internet in the interest of hollywood and big companies" thing
