What is CISPA?

Here is a great explanation of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA)

It's not good.

The legislation was introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012, but was not passed by the U.S. Senate. President Obama's advisers have argued that the bill lacks confidentiality and civil liberties safeguards and they advised him to veto it. In February 2013 the House reintroduced the bill and passed it on April 18, 2013. (Read more on Wikipedia)

I hope it gets stopped in the Senate.

Again, we must contact our Senators and tell them to vote against it.

Funny that the Republicans introduced it and the Obama Advisors thought is was a good idea. It is a mixed up crazy world.
