I don't mean to make this overly political but I would like to know how this will change your browsing habits and the services you use. Several large companies, including facebook, google and microsoft support CISPA and to me that will make me accelerate my plans to get off of their services. Anyone else have any thoughts?

Hmmm, will my Chrome take the back seat and be replaced by IE9 and Bing?  We will see.  Hopefully the White House will stick to their decision to veto it. 

Hey youngens on the board, go start your political career so we can get some more tech-savvy Reps and Senators on the Hill.

I saw this. There are still far too many companies that support it and I am still moving some of my essential services to alternative providers. Better safe than sorry.

I assume I am always being watched anyway so I guess it would not change my browsing too much.  It just makes me a little anxious that the Gmen's power has increased this much into the personal lives of people they swore to protect.  How long before they take that power too far? 

There is no denying that they have that power now.  Now, it is how do we get our privacy back if we even can at this point.  They are just changing/rewording bills to get them passed.
