    Naturally, tyrants never rest until they have robbed you of your last freedoms.

    The latest evil re-working of the soon-to-be-buried SOPA and PIPA bills is being brought back in a slightly different form, and it is all about "thinking of the little children".

    H.R. 1981, also known as "Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011" will, among other things, require ISPs to store ALL temporary IP addresses and track data transacted for all user Internet sessions for a period of at least one year. This data will include sensitive personally identifiable information, including credit card numbers.

    No more buying Fleshjacks and skimpy underwear online (much less downloading stuff without an appropriate intellectual property license) without Uncle Sam having a track record of it.

    Another case of control freeks seeking out a problem they can work into a wedge issue that religious do gooders can sink their teeth into and get behind. Looks like all the progressive groups and their sites are going to have to go back into high gear against this.

    We need to vote whomever authored the bill out of office, as well as all supporters of it.

    Terrorism isn't scaring people the way it used to anymore, so perhaps fearmongering about hordes of non-existent child pornographers will.
