(former client of mine... patient journal)
Here I lay in my hospital bed,
My mind is lost, my heart is dead.
Please don’t feel my life is pain.
My shirt is marked with a big red stain.
I kept it real by the marks on me,
I have more emotions than there are fish in the sea.
Turned all around at break neck speed,
Just a little serenity is all I need.
When it comes to crazy, I do it great,
But when I find my mind it will be too late.
I can’t really tell you exactly how I feel,
Until I find out the wounds will never heal.
“The paradox of education is precisely this— that as one begins to become
educated, one begins to examine the society in which he [or she] is
being educated.” - Baldwin

Send an email to Congress. We need to make it clear to Congress that they can’t push legislation that undermines all existing privacy laws. Use EFF’s action center to email your Congressional representatives to tell them to oppose CISPA.3. Publish a statement opposing CISPA. Post an update to your blog or social networking site telling folks to join you in opposing any CyberSecurity legislation that sacrifices civil liberties. Sample statement:Congress is currently considering CISPA – the Cyber Intelligence Sharing & Protection Act – a bill that purports to protect the United States from “cyber threats” but would in fact create a gaping loophole in all existing privacy laws. If CISPA passes, companies could vacuum up huge swaths of data on everyday Internet users and share it with the government without a court order. I oppose CISPA, and I’m calling on Congress to reject any legislation that: * Uses dangerously vague language to define the breadth of data that can be shared with the government. *
Hands the reins of America’s CyberSecurity defenses to the NSA, an agency with no transparency and little accountability. * Allows data shared with the government to be used for purposes unrelated to CyberSecurity
.Join me in opposing this bill by posting this statement on your own page and using this online form to send a letter to Congress against CISPA:https://action.eff.org/o/9042/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=84444. Make your opposition to CISPA heard. Write op-eds, blog articles, status updates or Tweets.
Tell the world why you are opposing CISPA and why Internet users need to be able to read and communicate in private. And keep an eye on the EFF Deeplinks blog –we’ll take a closer look at the grave civil liberties implications of this bill, from its lack of public accountability to why CyberSecurity and national security should be kept separate.What are you doing to oppose CISPA? Tell EFF!
