Really no comments about warrant-less database searches?  I hadn't heard about it when it was shot down the first time.

Relax, if you haven't done anything wrong, you've got nothing to hide!

He's said that about other things that he's let pass.

Besides, now is the time for a draconian program to monitor everyone's information at all times without a warrant.

If we just could have read everyone's e-mail, everything in Boston wouldn't have happened.

I know because I went to an alternate reality where America was the land of surveillance and terrorism doesn't happen there.

The House passes a lot of ridiculous things, like the repeal of Obamacare (35 times) or ridiculous Paul Ryan-authored budgets.  They just die in the Senate because they're ridiculous.

CISPA has repeatedly demonstrated itself to have significant backing without a large public outcry to knock it down.

Sad thing is that a segment of the population (of any given country) do actually believe that if they do nothing wrong and keep their noses clean, the authorities will always leave them alone.

Even when the state is busy bending them over they'll still profess that everything's fine: because they've done nothing wrong.

Most people have zero interest or knowledge of politics.  The only reason PIPA and the other one got nailed to the wall was Google, Microsoft, etc.  finally came out against it.

If I remember correctly Google is a major sponsor of this legislation so they're going to keep shtum.

Here is how you do the straw man argument:

FTA:  "If you want to take a shot across China's bow, this is the answer," said Mike Rogers, the Republican politician who co-wrote Cispa and chairs the House Intelligence Committee."

Well done Mike Rogers.  You all give ussomething to aspire to.

Or "first, pass no bills" - similar net effect.

Background checks for all gun purchase: NO on the ground of FREEDOM!

Congress creates regulations for everything it hates and protect everything it likes.
It likes dead Americans and hates freedom, obviously.

The classical way to take over a country is to control information and infrastructure first.

Plenty of Democrats supported this piece of shiat bill, I'm not letting them off the hook just because Republicans suck.  The Democrats gave the House a veto-proof majority on this vote.  Now we have to rely on the Senate *shudder* to stop it.  As I've said before, maybe RAND PAUL will stop it with an epic filibuster, since he claims to care so much about privacy, freedom, and due process.

He said the same thing about NDAA, so I wouldn't take much comfort in that.

When did he say that? No President would actually veto a military appropriations bill, so I'm wondering why he'd make such a promise.

Go get out the microfilm records from six months ago and find out yourself.

Military appropriations bills are routine measures that pass with majorities that are not only veto-proof but near-unanimous (~95 senators voted for the last NDAA, if I recall correctly), so the President's obviously not going to gain anything by vetoing it. If he did claim he was going to veto it at some point, that's actually pretty silly - though I guess it might make sense as a bit of theatre for people who don't really know how the government works.
