I never thought I'd be posting a thread like this so early. Is this news? Is this (semi) old? I can't tell, though I know the video and the article linked in the video appear to be new.

Anywho... this bill is total bull and should seriously burn. I'm not quite sure if this is another kind of Government corruption or just some idiot passing by thinking he can make laws. Whichever it is, Vic Toews needs to get the hell out of office because he clearly does not belong.

What is this world coming to?

Why do so many politicians want to lead their countries to destruction?

I'm American and don't know many Canadians but I'll try spreading the word for ya.

It's not just in canada, did you actually think that SOPA and PIPA would be the end of it? The government is always trying to pass stuff that's convenient for them, and in many cases they try to sneak bills by and pass them silently, and we're continually losing our rights without even knowing it. SOPA and PIPA was just a rare case that got a lot of attention, most others don't get enough attention if any for them to be able to get stopped. Especially for ones that aren't internet related, but that's another topic for another day.

I recommend reading both of these articles in regards to this other bill.

From the same person who brought you SOPA, we present the H.R. 1981 bill!

"Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011"

If this bill passes it will require ISPs to record names, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers and IPs and all of your internet activity and save them in a database for a minimum of 18 months. It's scary enough to think that that information will be available on you without even having to be suspected of a crime, it's even scarier to think that these databases will be the Motherload of identity theft and will almost certainly be under attack nonstop by hackers.

"The bill is mislabeled," said Democrat panel member Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, according to CNET. "This is not protecting children from Internet pornography. It's creating a database for everybody in this country for a lot of other purposes."

What "other purposes" could there be? CNET points out that the data logs would be accessible to police investigating any crime and perhaps attorneys using it for discovery in civil disputes (like divorces). Law enforcement officials would be able to search the databases for specific information of an individual that could be used against them, even if its meaning is misconstrued.
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they're not entitled to their own facts."

This shit sucks, yo.

I hate this kind of stuff, it's so dumb.

What's even worse when people believe the nonsense the government spews out (something I really hated about the SOPA/PIPA stuff). It's like people just don't care about their basic individual rights anymore and don't even bother doing their research.

There are always ignorant politicians who know nothing about technology and then try to pass laws governing it that will screw us all over.
