CISPA nearly abolishes people’s right not to be unreasonably searched
So Its up to Obama to save us from Unconstitutional Laws now? Were screwed. And… For those of you who recognize that these practices already exist, keep in mind that there is a difference between ILLEGALLY gathering and storing our private info, and… codifying it into “law”.
Soon, Americans may find every private email they write could be opened, copied and inspected by government snoopers. The latest cyber security bill – called CISPA – has passed the House of Representatives, coming a step closer to becoming law. President Barack Obama has threatened to veto the act, if it goes through in the Senate. He cited civil liberty concerns as the reason for his threat. CISPA has raised a massive outcry with internet users and freedom activists, who say it’s a hard hit on people’s privacy. Reaction now from Dr Richard Stallman, who’s President of the Free Software Foundation. He’s in Tunis.
