For anyone out there who can’t/don’t follow links:

“All hope is not lost, because the bill is only stalled for the rest of the year. We can raise it again in 2018.
A.B. 375 was introduced late in the session; that it made it so far in the process so quickly demonstrates that there are many legislators who are all-in on privacy. In January, EFF will build off this year’s momentum with a renewed push to move A.B. 375 to the governor’s desk. Mark your calendar and join us.”

This means write your Congressperson… NOW!

ALL politicians are the enemy. Every single one.

Ugh. They can go pound avocados.

Fuck these fucking fucks.


#16

No, but folks (politicians most loudly) from California claim “as goes California, so goes the nation.” I guess that means “f the people, I gots to get paid!” sigh


#17

Who is this group of legislators? I don’t see that in the article.
