Here we go again! There is an old saying, "The Devil is busy," and that is certainly true of the T-rump administration. You'd think with all his tweets going viral, he would want to maintain our right privacy in our communications - via social media, cell phones, etc. But no! Instead, as always, he is going counter-intuitive and trying to eviscerate the privacy act that was passed during the Obama administration.
If this guy had at least one original or intelligent thought, maybe folks wouldn't be so alarmed - but so far, his blatant lack of intelligence, coupled with the megalomaniacal need to be seen - even if it's for the most ignorant, insipid, or insane behavior - is appalling and embarrassing. Remember the statement: "THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING?" Well for T-rump it's like ambrosia. LOL
What this miscreant doesn't realize is that "what's sauce for the goose is good for the gander" - in other words, what goes around comes around. If the Privacy Act is removed, then it's open season on his Russian and Putin dealings - If we lose our privacy - his goes as well. If he sets it up sot that we are spied upon, he will likewise face the same fate - which, by extrapolation may actually mean his and his henchmen will be ejected bodily from the White House into the hoosegow for treason - hmmmm......???? Wow! maybe we should let them get rid of the privacy act - then we can track down the emails and communications of the rest of those lurking in the shadows of the White House as well - like Ryan and McConnell - Hey! Why not.
But in the interest of the rest of us Americans, we can't allow this to happen.
We have to flood the Congress with calls to stop the madness right now.
We need to make our voices heard TODAY:
Social Media:Reach out to your member of Congress via Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #BroadbandPrivacy urging them to vote NO on S.J. Res. 34.
Call In and Send a Fax – Contact your U.S. House of Representative and your U.S. Senator and urge them to “vote NO on S.J. Res. 34”.
Advancements in global internet usage have integrated the words: “Google it,” “Post it,” “Tweet,” “Share,” “Online Bill Pay,” “Email” and “Venmo” into our everyday vocabulary. With an estimated 3.2 billion people using the internet daily, online privacy has always been a critical concern.
In 2014, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) listened to the 3.7 million Americans who voiced they did not want internet service providers spying on or controlling how they used the internet- and the FCC listened!
During the Obama administration, regulations were passed by the FCC that updated and strengthened rules that would require:
Web providers to get customer approval before sharing information;
Take reasonable measures to keep customers’ data secure; and
give customers timely notice of data breaches.
Unfortunately, the U.S. Senate voted last week to abolish those rules and the House of Representatives is set to vote today! If the House follows the Senate not only would the vote overturn the privacy protections but FCC could also never pass similar rules again.
So, while it's a great fantasy to think that this will boomerang on the Senate and the House, the overall effect it could have on us - WE, THE PEOPLE, could likewise be devastating.
Under T-rump, we're just two goose-steps away from facism and nazism - and don't think it can't happen here with a feckless group of greedy repuglycons salivating at their ability to dictate to and ride roughshod over the very people who elected them to represent their best interests. They have become like the rabid dog who, after tasting human blood, can't get enough of it.
Make your voices heard - contact your congressional representatives now - make it known that you're mad as hell and you're not having it!! NO on S.J. Res. 34.
NOW THAT YOU KNOW, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Stay Blessed &
