i love the smell of tear gas. my cameras batteries ran out before the cops showed up and started arresting people and shooting tear gas at everyone. it was exciting. People complain a lot about “what are they getting done.” I say they’re getting more done than people that are complaining about the way things are from the seat of their couch. So there.
so, turns out Google is NOT your friend..
Google acknowledged in its latest lobbying disclosure form that it is working behind the scenes on a controversial cybersecurity bill, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
The bill’s author, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), told The Hill last week that Google has been “supportive” of CISPA, which has angered some of the same Internet activists who joined with Google to defeat the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
A Google spokeswoman said that although the company is lobbying on the bill, it has not taken a public position.
“We think this is an important issue and we’re watching the process closely but we haven’t taken a formal position on any specific legislation,” the spokeswoman said.
The disclosure form lists CISPA along with 10 other consumer issues that Google is lobbying on. The company has eight lobbyists working on the category of issues, including former Rep. Susan Molinari (R-N.Y.) and Pablo Chavez, Google’s director of public policy and a former aide to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
The goal of the legislation is to help companies beef up their defenses against hackers who steal business secrets, rob customers’ financial information and wreak havoc on computer systems.
But civil liberty groups are campaigning against the bill, warning it would encourage companies to hand over private information to government spy agencies.
Supporters of CISPA include Facebook, Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Symantec, AT&T and Verizon.
Jon Lee Anderson over at the new yorker
the mayday mission
paint bombs and over turned BMW’s galore.
.fuckin yuppies Ruined the mission. I went there the other day for the first time in almost a year and hardly recognized the place. friend of mine said he was looking out his window the other day “Suits, with their finger like this” motioning around. Seeing everyone’s homes as real estate. Seeing over a hundred years of culture as space for rent.
.Forbes calls occupy commies! HAAaaa!! omg what is this the 50s?
.CBS calls them “vandals” hahaha!!
mission scenesters call occupy “fuckheads”.. (sure buddy sure)
.impotent freaks says JWF (whoever day iz)
weazel zipper has a good eye on things
my two cents:
as long as occupy keeps tearing shit up the rest of the country is gonna have to be like, “OK there’s a problem”. it’s just that simple. they dont need to be a well organized lobbying group, they just need to keep causing disruptions. then people will be forced to react. what will the reaction be? well depends on the significance of the THREAT.
