Well, CISPA would allow them to give that personal information to the government without your permission. It would also allow the government to spy on you without your permission. It would also prevent you from knowing that they’re spying on you, even after they’ve already done so. This violates the 4th Amendment in our Constitution, the right to not be unreasonably searched without your permission. In other words, CISPA is really bad. It’s not stooky at all! And since it’s so horrible, it can’t possibly be passed, right? Wrong. It got passed!
That means that the information your parents might’ve given to websites that they signed up for and trusted could be sent to the government. This applies to anyone who has signed up for a website asking for information that they trusted would be safe in the hands of that website. And like I said, it already got passed. Lots of people (including me) protested, but Congress didn’t listen. And the sponsor of CISPA, Mike Rogers, claimed that all the protestors of CISPA are just 14-year-olds in basements, which isn’t true.
Barack Obama said that he plans to veto (a veto is when the president tries to end a law) CISPA (you can read more about that here: http://www.wtvm.com/story/21998220/president-obama-plans-to-veto-cyber-data-sharing-bill). Barack Obama is definitely not a 14-year old. You can enter your email address (or your parent’s email address with their permission) at cispaisback.com to protest CISPA. It’s not too late to protest it, even though it was already passed. Hopefully, the veto will be successful. And you can see Mike Rogers claiming all CISPA-protestors are 14-year olds here:
So, again, Max-igami is shut down until further notice. The only activity I’ll allow for now is comments on this page.
May the Force be with you. You’ll need it to protest CISPA.
