US House Approves Internet Snooping bill and it’s MUCH more invasive than that #wtf


The lovingly titled Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011 (PCFIPA of 2011) requires ISPs to retain customer names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and dynamic IP addresses. It’s a record of your personal information plus the web sites you visit. It’s like handing over a year’s worth of browser history plus the contents of your wallet to the police. The thing is, you’re not really handing it over so much as your ISP is—without your consent.

Ummm……   really?    I’d like to try to this this happen….    An ISP that does this is no ISP of mine I’d like to extend that to a gov’t that signs this shit into law is clearly one that no longer represents the “free” people of the United States any longer. What the hell is happening to this Country?

EDIT:  LIfehacker has an article up with some great suggestions for helping to circumvent this crap.   As far as I’ve read, these measures are currently in place, this is an effort to extend the time frame they  can hold on to your  personal data.:

If you have any additional suggestions, please comment!
