TheWarp: Not surprised. Not one bit.
TimonC346: I really rarely call my senator or house rep--I live in CA, I'm a lib, so they generally vote on these bills as I'd hoped they would. But this was too important. I actually found myself leaving an awkward message for Feinstein and Boxer.I like it how the 2nd amendment remains sacred, none of the others seem to be held in nearly as high regard.
SpdrJay: The cure for these issues is jail time.
Peki: And yet people seem so skerred of his drones.
Blue_Blazer: ...And Obama has vowed to veto. The odds of the Senate passing this with a veto-proof majority have to be pretty slim, right?
Uglybarnacle: So lemme get this straight. Gun background check bill fails and invasive Internet bill passes? They should cross check those who voted down the gun bill and voted yay for CISPA to determine which are corrupt beyond belief
jonny_q: Almost no one goes out begging their representatives to take other people's privacy away. But I guess you could find at least one anecdote of all manner of stupid shiat.
Aarontology: The only thing surprising is that people are surprised that our government is flat out for sale.
jonny_q: TimonC346: I like it how the 2nd amendment remains sacred, none of the others seem to be held in nearly as high regard.From my point of view, people rise up over the first amendment (when it suits them) or the fourth amendment, but forget all about the second amendment, the tenth amendment, the first amendment again (when it doesn't suit them) or sometimes even the fifth.But no, we agree perfectly fine here. As I understand the bill, this should be completely invalid under the fourth amendment.
