    Good.


    The bill was more or less worded
    "If someone uses a computer, companies can give all the info collected on you to the US gov."


    For the house of rep. Though, it was paraphrased like this:"yay=money, nay=no money"

    Don't understand why so many Republicans were on board for this crappy legislation.

    unfortunately and in light of what is going on now, you have to believe the government is and has been doing these things. In reality, didn't most of you believe that the gathering of this data has been going on for as long as the technology was in place to do it?
