What everyone who uses the internet needs to know about CISPA

think-progress:

Here’s a quick look at the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, with the full details at ThinkProgress.

  • CISPA’s broad language will likely give the government access to anyone’s personal information with few privacy protections.
  • The bill completely exempts itself from the Freedom of Information Act.
  • CISPA gives companies blanket immunity from future lawsuits.
  • Companies can already inform the government and each other about incoming cybersecurity threats.
  • Most Republicans support CISPA, while most Democrats oppose it, and President Obama threatened to veto it.
  • The internet is fighting back.

Of course, all of us should be honored to be listed on the TIME 100 alongside the two men who will be slugging it out in the fall: President Obama, and the man who would defeat him, David Koch. Give it up everybody for David Koch.

David, nice to see you again, sir.

Little known fact, David’s brother Charles Koch is actually even more influential. Charles pledged $40 million to defeat President Obama, David only $20 million. That’s kind of cheap, Dave.

Sure, he’s all for buying the elections, but when the bill for democracy comes up, Dave’s always in the men’s room. I’m sorry, I must have left Wisconsin in my other coat.

I was particularly excited to meet David Koch earlier tonight because I have a Super PAC, Colbert Super PAC, and I am — thank you, thank you — and I am happy to announce Mr. Koch has pledged $5 million to my Super PAC. And the great thing is, thanks to federal election law, there’s no way for you to ever know whether that’s a joke.

By the way, if David Koch likes his waiter tonight, he will be your next congressman.

I just got out of bed, and snuck over to the computer, and supported Amanda’s Kickstarter.

(Happy Birthday, darling.)

Watch the video. It will tell you everything about Amanda, that you could ever want to know. Also, it’s really sweet and funny.

8 reasons Romney is more conservative than George W. Bush

think-progress:

We’re a tease, so we’ll just give you a couple:

  1. Bush passed a huge tax cut plan, mostly benefiting the wealthy. Romney’s tax cut plan is four times larger, more heavily weighted to benefit ultra wealthy.
  2. Bush supported comprehesive immigration reform, a path to citizenship for 12 million undocumented immigrants and provisions of the DREAM Act. Romney opposes all of it.
  3. Bush acknowledged global warming is caused by humans. Romney says “we don’t know.
For the first eight years of our marriage, [Michelle and I] were paying more in student loans than what we were paying for our mortgage. So we know what this is about.

And we were lucky to land good jobs with a steady income. But we only finished paying off our student loans—check this out, all right, I’m the President of the United States—we only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago.

—President Obama in North Carolina today on why Congress has to act to prevent interest rates on student loans from doubling (via barackobama)

When Obama was nominated, he got a lot of criticism for not having military experience. I think it’s more pertinent that he had the experience of not growing up wealthy and privileged in America. How can someone who’s never had to worry about money or loans create a fair policy about them? -Jess
