Will CISPA ever be permanently defeated?
StillADotcommer 47 weeks ago
It seems like an annual ritual now for some Senator and/or Congressman to reintroduce CISPA, the NSA friendly legislation to make it easier for the government to get personal information from private companies. The director of the NSA was calling for CISPA just a few weeks ago. For the children. Senators Chambliss and Feinstein obliged. One is Republican and one Democrat, so everyone has someone to be mad at, luckily. I’m going to go through the steps of calling and emailing my congressmen over this again, and hope other people will as well, but man, it seems like a Sisyphean effort at times. Any ideas how to fight CISPA more effectively?
