The usage of internet traffic continues to grow at a massive rate so thats not going to be static. They also would have to make the system sherchable and have backups so I doubt this bill could be done without massive costs. For a comparrison the number of 3TB harddrives needed for just one exabyte of information would require 333,334 3TB hardrives.
Critics have suggested that this bill was a backdoor way to track Internet usage, compromising civil liberties. Representative Zoe Lofgren, (D-Calif.), one of the most vocal opponents of the bill, presented an amendment to rename the bill the "Keep Every American's Digital Data for Submission to the Federal Government Without a Warrant Act."
So in other words you'd rather keep your browser history a secret... Over police catching people who rape lil kids?
the firm that sells you Internet access would be required to track all of your Internet activity and save it for 18 months, along with your name, the address where you live, your bank account numbers, your credit card numbers, and IP addresses you’ve been assigned.

It sounds like people will support this one more than the SOPA bill. "Internet piracy" is one thing, but who can say they're against trying to stop "child pornography"? It seems that they're attaching negative things to bills meant to combat those things. You know what I'm saying?
Stop internet piracy and stop child pornography both appear to amount to internet censorship, no matter how much of a feel-good bill it is.
”Child pornography is great,” the speaker at the podium declared enthusiastically. ”It is great because politicians understand child pornography. By playing that card, we can get them to act, and start blocking sites. And once they have done that, we can get them to start blocking file sharing sites”.

those are the co sponsors of the bill so if any of them are your reps let them know what you think about it names were found at op's source this is terrifying that they are trying to pass this again and using the protect kids from pornogrophers line is just tried and true bs to get buisnesses to not protest
Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed -- and no republic can survive
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Not just censorship, but literal tracking of everyone. It is diabolical and invasive. Totalitarian. It's just part of what's to come.
Internet tracking and censorship
red light cameras
school laptop cameras
car black boxes
devices to control car speed autonomously
toll lane trackers
devices to monitor speed in cars
smart grid meters for electric
sky in the eye
gps and cell phone tracking
heart monitors for children
get the drift?

Did the defenders of the Alamo die in vain? Has Liberty died in even Texas?
