I will be sure to forcibly exploit this, when the US surveillance apparatus acts upon my myriad honeypots.


#3

Blows me away that it’s even possible to introduce a bill without making it’s text available.
How is that even a thing?
How am I supposed to know when I need to call my representatives if I can’t see the freaking thing?


#4

They’re going to have to hire more people at the NSA/CIA/FBI just to “do” all the jail time.


#5

The Heavens have not the petards to supply the Republican Party’s wishes.


#6

Only right wing nutcases believe that a bill should be passed before we have the opportunity to read it. Cf. the risibly named “Affordable Care Act”.


#7

It’s that kind of thinking that gets you put on Double Secret Probation.


#8

I’m trying to grasp the twisted logic here, but I’m afraid there probably isn’t any.

I don’t understand why they think this is a good idea - all that’s going to do is make people angrier.


#9

Did you pay them 6- or 7-figures? Then they’re not YOUR representatives.


#10

Lets hope Obama publicly endorses this bill so then the Republicans can turn on it and kill it.


#11

Looks like it might be this one

S 1027 A bill to require notification of information security breaches and to enhance penalties for cyber criminals, and for other purposes.


#12

And the remarks:

By Mr. KIRK (for himself and Mrs. Gillibrand):

CYBER, CYBER, CYBER!


#13

Every time I see something like this, I wonder, “What’s actually going on that they’re trying to distract folks from?”


#14

I love Gillibrand, but I’ve had this ominous feeling she’s going to turn into Hillary.


#15

Am I the only one who noticed the (D-NY) who’s a sponsor? You know that means Democrat, right?


#16

I’ve been saying for years that Democrats are right-wing nutcases. But who listens?


#17

The law must be read to be understood. Until it’s published, we can’t do that. It was probably rushed to steal some thunder from Wyden’s bill, though.


#18

Our lawmakers seem reactive and frightened in everything they do. And the thing they’re most afraid of seems to be us.


#19

I’m pretty sure, by now, that the assholes have INDEED inherited the Earth!
