Appearantly Congress has put in the floor a new bill to replace SOPA known as CISPA, described as a "cybersecurity" bill. To sum it up, the government is saying that (once again) we're all in danger so the government needs to be able to control the internet. How many times have we went down this same road????

YES,I saw that they have up with a new one,that is if you report your cell phone stolen they want to be able shut your cell phone off so no one can use it,if you carry this farther what
is stopping them from shutting off all cell phones like they do in other countries.

As much as I would like this to evolve into a good discussion, the topic is presented as a 'soap-box' issue ( or 'sopa-box', if you will), and is not conducive to a discussion.
