Internet Surveillance Is Back

Update at 12/19/15 6:03 a.m.: The president yesterday signed an omnibus spending bill with CISA in it. I had earlier posted an update saying CISA had been left out of the bill, based on an email update I received from one of the internet freedom organizations I follow, but that proved to be inaccurate.

This is exactly what I've been warning about. The internet spying bill, CISA, that we fought so hard to defeat last year is back, having been slipped into the omnibus spending bill that the new house speaker Paul Ryan is being lauded for getting past the tea baggers with Democrat's help, and this version is even worse.

This tells about it and has links for protesting to our senators and congresswomen, who have been ranked for us according to their stances on internet freedom.
