CISPA -- the "cybersecurity" bill that would let corporations share your private information with the government without a warrant, and would prevent you from suing said corporations for the harm they did you as long as they did it in good faith -- passed the House last week. President Obama, in a rare show of support for civil liberties, has said he'll veto it if it reaches his desk, but why wait? The Senate hasn't taken the bill up yet, and Demand Progress helps you tell your Senator to reject CISPA. The Senate is where that bill went to die last year, and that isn't a good thing quite often enough, but who knows what Senators will do this year, especially with big telecoms like Verizon and AT&T spending millions of dollars backing the bill? All we can do is speak in such numbers that they can't ignore us anymore.
Meanwhile, the Orlando Sentinel reports that Disney World wants the Florida state legislature to pass a bill preventing city and county efforts to pass paid sick leave bills. Very "small government" of them! But the Magic Kingdom has an Achilles' heel: you. For you can take your family somewhere else than Disney World if they don't want to give their workers a little breathing space when they get ill, so those workers don't infect your family, or worry about losing their jobs. And now the state Senator behind the paid-sick-leave-ban bill actually wants to broaden the bill to include local wage-hike bans! Apparently he thinks when you're caught doing something unpopular, you should double down. I wonder where he learned that. Moms Rising helps you tell Disney World to lay off local efforts to help workers when they're ill.
