Hi all,

I wanted to start a post on this Bill because i didn't want the link to oppose the bill to get lost in a post that I had posted it in. I just recently received an email regarding the "Congress Pushing Broad New Internet Snooping Bill" matter. Here is a quote from the email.



Yesterday a U.S. House committee approved HR 1981, a broad new Internet snooping bill. They want to force Internet service providers to keep track of and store their customers' information -- including your name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses.

The American Civil Liberties Union, the American Library Association, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Demand Progress, and 25 other civil liberties and privacy groups have expressed our opposition to this legislation.

Will you join us in opposition by emailing your lawmakers right away? Just click here.

Please get involved and it is easy to do! Go to the link to voice your opinion or use can uses their pre-scripted note to the members of Congress. Please also post this link to your Twitter and Facebook if you oppose this legislation.

No thanks. As I do agree that the internet is open, I will NOT support any organization which hides behind the word "progress", when all I've ever seen from the "progressives" is a "regression" back to the stone age. They won't be happy until we're under Muslim rule, living in caves, and giving off zero carbon emissions. Like I said, "no thanks".

After sending the letter, I made the foolish mistake of sharing this on facebook. It asked for my username and password to log-in to facebook, but the link was never posted. I immediately changed my password on facebook, and I urge you not to share this link that way.

Opposing this bill means you support the organization in the link?


I just figured I would post a link for those who do not know how to "communicate" with congress and make it very easy for them to voice an opinion. This has nothing to do with the organization in the link itself.

If you oppose the Bill, follow the link and submit a letter to congress directly through the website. If not you can go to your congressman's website and email them directly yourself.

No need to make it more than it is. Nothing more, nothing less.

Gotcha.


To those that do not want to visit site, I will quote the note to Congress that is on the site so that you can copy and paste to the letter to your congressman if you do not want to write your own letter.



I am a constituent and I join more than 25 civil liberties and privacy groups in urging you to oppose H.R. 1981. As Congresswoman Lofgren said a few days ago: "It represents a data bank of every digital act by every American that would 'let us find out where every single American visited Web sites" Rep. Sensenbrenner said: "I oppose this bill...It can be amended, but I don't think it can be fixed...It poses numerous risks that well outweigh any benefits, and I'm not convinced it will contribute in a significant way to protecting children." Rep. Conyers said "The bill is mislabeled.... This is not protecting children from Internet pornography. It's creating a database for everybody in this country for a lot of other purposes." This legislation is a direct assault on Internet users, and I urge you to oppose it.


Again, I was only trying to make more aware and get more involved. Thank you everyone for your feedback.
