Welp I'm gonna be taking a train to Canada soon. Who wants in?

my iPhone has been asking me that for weeks. then last week the locations icon was on when I have all location services turned off. o_________o
Actually, if you're using Android or BlackBerry phones, theres software called "Carrier IQ" which forcibly tracks you. You can try and turn it off but it will never turn off.

That's probably why you can't turn the location services off. If you mean your iPhone, well shit... I have one too. :v

This bill is bull crap.
Just, what the hell?

Except for Verizon iPhones, actually. It's only Sprint and AT&T iPhones, from what I've heard, that have Carrier IQ on them

First SOPA, now this.
Congress has far too much free time on their hands if they keep looking for ways such as this to chisel away at Americans' given freedoms.

Pizza is a vegetable. Yep, they definitely have too much time on their hands. Seems like there is a "stupefy-fatten-restrict" thing going on.

Such a large majority... Well, we can hope that they won't abuse this bill if it passes. Then again, we shouldn't have to HOPE they don't abuse their power. Something like this is just going to cause a lot of fear and paranoia.

That may be true. I have heard it told however that the same company makes similar software for other devices anyway. So who knows. I haven't looked too far into the subject apart from a few articles on Wired.

I wonder how this will collide with Michelle Obama and her blatant opposition to the fatten part.

I'd suggest you all move to Canada, but... let's face it. Stephen Harper has a massive hardon for all things American. We're more and more like you guys all the time. Moving up here seems to me like postponing the inevitable. :\

Wait, was this bill just passed in Congress? Or has it actually been made law? Because even though I'm disturbed that this law would even be considered in Congress, it still technically isn't law until the President signs it, which I really doubt he will. And even if that happens the Supreme Court would be all over this. The U.S. government can be pretty stupid, but they're not that stupid. At least I like to think/hope so.

>President vetoes
>Congress overrules with a 2/3 majority
>Up to Supreme Court to decide

Usually, the SC knows what's up, but we'll see.

Hm, should look for those tickets to Canada...

This pretty much just shows Congress isn't fit to lead this country anywhere. Hope Obama can work some kind of magic to kill this bill dead.

If I could work magic just by saying "No," perhaps I could be President of the United States too '3'



I'm expecting (meaning this god damn shit better be gotten rid of) this dribbling nonsense to go under the political bridge, unless Congress is nothing but a bunch of stupid, old, paranoid farts who have forgotten most people would rather live their lives in some sort of security (then again, Congress is stupid enough to conjure this babbling loony tune); the same people who make up the (mostly) tax-paying voters who get these foolish morons elected. Really, Congress? It's the near-exact opposite of the usually viewed America.

I would not be suprised if they took this WAY overboard and started arresting people who even have 'un american' tags in their posts. Like, if you even mention arson, guns or terrorism in a twitter post, then they would just arrest you, not even look at the whole post, but just arrest you... time to grab my ice skates.
