I've seen bits and pieces mentioned in the Mega threads, but any discussion or compilation of facts gets lost amidst all the theorizing and arguing -
which is why Governments around the world wait till just these sorts of moments to pass dubious laws and release embarrassing information.
So to kick this off here's my two:
CISPA - the one everyone knows about - it's only just coming to light that the Boston Bombings were actually cited as one of the reasons why this
needed to be passed! Anyone whos active in the online petitions will know that previous times this or its sister bill were floated there was a lot of
stuff going round to get it pulled - not so much this time round though...
Thankfully it didn't get through the Sennate so YAY for common sense!
The second big one which I've barely seen mentioned is this:
basically removing any checks and balances on insider
trading for Congressman - not quite sure how that doesn't create a conflict of interest personally...
I'm fairly certain there was a third dubious act pushed through about this time... but I can't for the life of me remember what it was.
