      And as usual, my representative actually votes correctly...

      Sam Farr, I LOVE YA!  This is why I would have to move if I ever ran for congress...  

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      The Republican nays are interesting.

      Louie Gohmert?  Seriously?  Louie Gohmert voted against a bill that 42 Democrats did not consider too serious an invasion of privacy?!

        It's an issue being promoted by the MPAA and RIAA, among others.  A number of Democrats will cross over to "protect the industry from the bad guys".

        •  That relation may bear more publicity (0+ / 0-)

          MPAA and RIAA are not any too unfamiliar names, among music fans (and musicians) in the digital era. If they've supported CISPA ... it would seem as though there may be a bit of a fish of a vermilion hue, lurking between the lines.

    •  If every Democrat had voted nay, it fails (1+ / 0-)

      by 210-202 if I did the math right and remember it right.  Obama shouldn't be afraid to veto that.  

      We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
