Your Government Finding New Ways to Spy On You......

Your government just made it easier for them to spy on you. 

Private corporations can now hand over all your private information to the government and there is NOTHING you can do about it.  In a free and open society the most important thing is the government knowing all your business. 

They want all the power and they want you to have none of the power.  Your job is just to sit there and be quiet.

privacy activists argue that the bill lacks robust privacy protections. They expressed concerns with provisions that allow the Department of Homeland Security to share information gathered in the program with other government agencies, such as the FBI or the National Security Agency.

Critics say that effectively turns the legislation into a backdoor surveillance bill that benefits the intelligence community.

the bill would give participating companies liability protections that could prevent customers from suing them for sharing private data, even in ways that violate a company’s own privacy policy
Some tech giants came out against the bill, including Apple, which has aggressively positioned itself on privacy issues. "We don't support the current CISA proposal," the company said in a statement last week. "The trust of our customers means everything to us and we don't believe security should come at the expense of their privacy."
