CISA DEFEATS Your Privacy?!

Tech and Science News: CISA DEFEATS Your Privacy?!

If there's one thing America loves, it's defeating stuff. Anti-Privacy bill CISA has failed before, under names like SOPA, but the government has a surefire way to win this time: put it in the budget... or else. Good job, boys! We did it! We defeated privacy!

    See I would call my governor but he happens to be Scott Walker and I don't have the patience to explain to him that the magic device that I reached him on is called a cell phone.

    On the upside, Once all these organizations get the shitton of information dumped in their laps and they have to do all the work of sorting thru it themselves, They will probably immediately regret their decision and want to go back to haveing Homeland Security do all the work like they are now

    welp, time to reread Little Brother, if the US is getting this in place NZ is screwed. Our PM's already illegally spying on us, now he's gonna make it legal and share even more with the US... and China... And anyone else who want's some too.


    People who say there's nothing to worry about if you don't do anything wrong forget just how subjective doing something wrong is. Have fun getting awkward 'conversations' because of an out of context tweet two years ago.

    Welcome to the cyberpunk era! Where everyone and everything is under surveillance
    I wish that the future era would've lasted more than 5 years

    But why should I care? I'm in Canada. the US government can already spy on citizens of all other countries.

    "If you've got nothing to hide"... Maybe you got nothing ILLEGAL to hide, but everyone has sides of their life they like to keep private. Fetishes, intimate conversations, drunken roleplay gone off the rails...

    Other than that, we've seen that polive overreact to perfectally innocent things taken completely out of context.

    While morally abhorrent, and a breach of basic liberty, practically this will likely make no difference. Mass surveillance doesn't work, you know the Garland shooting? it was announced on twitter a week before it happened. Mass surveillance simply is not effective, there's too much information to process manually and the algorithms they use to sift through it aren't effective at discerning legitimate security threats and random bullshit. The only real consequence of Mass surveilance is a breach of basic civil liberties, and they may occasionally harass an innocent person that made a joke on the internet or something like that.

      maybe not in a criminal sense, but a civil perspective on this is that they're able to potentially pass information back and forth corporations (including multnationals) and the government. so this paves the way for say, blue cross/blue shield to read every bit of information you ever sent in private to other people about some back injury and then (off record of course) decide to find some technicality to raise your rates/cancel your plan or something to that effect. the example isn't the best, but that type of free access could really shit on consumer confidentality

    The reason why "If you don't have anything to hide" is a bullshit, is because you don't think you're doing anything wrong but the context of what you're doing could be misconstrued as illegal. If you play Counter Strike, Battlefield, Call of Duty, Rainbow 6, or any other war game where they have terrorists as the bad guys and you might play as them, or bomb planting, or whatever else might be associated with violence and moderately questionable situations to someone who doesn't know about it, you could be pinned as a potential criminal. The reason this is bad isn't because it can find the people who are doing wrong easier, it's bad because you might not consider what you're doing is wrong, but someone else does.

    I could be wrong but isn't there a thing where the president can stricke something from a bill if it's too overreaching or too ridiculous?

      while yes that is true, the loophole with that is that our current pres. is a closeted communist f#ck, and would love nothing more that to sign this bill in its entirety into law, so that ways he's breaking less laws when hes spying on us.

      almost all of the state governments have what you said (it's called a line-item veto for reference) but the federal government at the executive level doesn't have that capability. i believe reagan and clinton tried to get this enacted into law, but at this point no congress will ever agree to it because it'd hugely undermine their authority. executive line-item vetos could arguably be worse than political riders like this CISA attachment, because then they could take good bills and veto elements of them that they don't like, like say a bill that funds education and foreign aid; president vetos education or vice versa.


      if you want to stop this kind of all but literal bullshit, ending political riders like this is what needs to be done. i don't know the specific legislation and acts that have allowed this or if it was allowed from the start (part of it has to do with the bill process from committees to subcommittees, the house and beyond) but just look up the term political rider and you can read up on it if you like

    Nah, fuck that. I'm fine with everything but local police. I don't interact with the FBI, so give them my fucking info. But I, admittedly, drive very poorly. Or rather very well, depending upon how you look at i-

    Fuck it, I street race. And I talk about it on forums. I don't want local police to be able to access the IP addresses associated.

    The govn. is too fucking obsessed with terrorism, and for a good reason, just not the one you may think. Terrorism creates fear; it's literally in the name. If you yell terrorism, people will collectively oppose it, and side with you. They may hate you and your ideals, but they don't care, because they're more afraid of an invisible threat.

    I feel it is necessary to say this before I continue: No, I do not believe - rather, do not care if - Bush caused 9/11.

    Anyway, it's the reason the conservative party still exists. Notice a commonality amongst all the conservative candidates? "Anti-terrorism, anti-terrorism, anti-terrorism!" Oh, and hating different minorities. That's a good one, too. Do people really not understand that the belief of terrorism, as it is implied, makes the US population putty in the government's hands? *Edit: apparently I didn't write this out enough, and rereading this I understand. I'm not saying liberals aren't abusing us with terrorism, I'm just saying that they're not using it as a campaign promise. There's no doubt in my mind they'll be just as involved in terrorism as conservatives. End edit*

    Jesus fucking christ I give up. This'll go through, "because terrorists", then Trump gets elected, then I blow my brains out. You know that thing where people always say they're going to leave the country if xxxx gets elected? I think this time it's real with Trump.

      You're an idiot. Both parties use terrorism as an excuse for their actions that are morally or constitutionally questionable to invade on our personal lives not just the conservatives, or do you ignore the pressure the liberals are doing with gun control laws lately?

      Honestly you and your conservative counterparts make me wish for a true anarchy. For those that don't know, or use the news media's interpretation rather than the actual definition, being able to live in a society without a government controlling or assisting you. It just requires two things that most Americans, not to mention humanity in general, are incapable of doing: 1. Taking responsibility for themselves and their actions. 2. People respecting the lives and livelihood of others.

      The only thing your comment got right is that Trump is a piece of shit who should have nothing to do with the government.

      @jmb83 Sorry, I reread my comment and realized I left out something. I edited it to include it.

      That said, anarchy simply cannot exist. People naturally look to others for leadership. Even if we were to become a true anarchist nation, slowly, but oh so surely, leaderships will rise. It'd make sense, because they'd be commonly representing groups of people, and many wouldn't realize that that's a democracy.

      The only solution (in my oh-so-awesome-opinion, haha) is a mix of communism and democracy. And I mean true democracy (not America's "democracy") and true communism (not Russia's "communism"). Communism is, in excruciatingly dumbed down terms, "one for all", while democracy is about equal and fair representation in government. Government is necessary, if you ask me. As much as I hate to say it, it doesn't hurt to have an army, and with the size of the US a militia would not cut it. That said, I think the general system of our government is a good one, but it is poorly executed. Having multiple systems of executive, legislative, and judicial parties is, quite honestly, genius. It's something not seen anywhere else in the world, or at least to the same extent. And it clearly works at least a little bit.


      All this said and done, there are parts of the job that we, as regular people, may just not understand about head of government. The gov has to make tough decisions it may not want to for the better good of the people. It's just a matter of when does our vote matter more than theirs.
