Do you hate internet freedom? Are you pissed SOPA got shot down by those hipsters? Good news! The American government has just the thing for you!

In November, 2011, when all the cool kids were trying to get their internet censorship bills pushed through the House and Senate, Republican and professional asshat Michael Rogers of Michigan decided it would be a good idea to write his own bill to control who looks at what porn, and apparently didn't get the memo that his buddy Lamar Smith caused a complete clusterfuck and shitstorm with his bill until it got completely cockblocked altogether.
Essentially what he's trying to do allow any company who claims to be promoting "internet security" (think AT&T) to not only track and monitor what any end user does on the internet, but do it without a warrant or even reason to believe said person is a threat (which even the Patriot Act required) and not only masturbate to the pictures of your little sister, but then also turn the information over to Glorious Mother America so that they can prosecute you. If that wasn't crazy enough, this bill also grants the corporations who give out your information immunity from civil lawsuits.

The fucking thing passed the House of Representatives. Break out the tinfoil hats!
Previously, this bill only allowed your privacy to be violated under the vaugeness of "cybersecurity."It's now been confirmed that the final bill passed by the congress specifies three ways for your privacy to be violated:
1. investigation and prosecution of cybersecurity crime
2. protection of individuals
3. protection of children
