I'm glad to see Congress is back to it's old ****. Can't get a bill one way, let's slip it in the back side (in more ways then one).

Congress tucked CISA inside last night's budget bill

I guess I don't understand why those same people who argue about the right to own a gun aren't also out there against **** like this;

Congress' New Budget for NASA Is Huge ? And Secretly Contains Hated Spying Bill CISA - Mic

-------------------------------------------

The bill about to pass through Congress is one small step for NASA, and one giant leap for the surveillance state.

In the newest version of the "omnibus" spending bill, the yearly legislation that passes enormous federal budget guidelines, NASA has been allocated $19.3 billion, a whole $1.27 billion more than the Obama administration asked for. This will allow NASA to fund its missions, ferry people between Earth and the International Space Station and continue to sever its dependence on Russian funds by shoring up its commercial crew program.

For people who love science and technology, it would be a resounding victory — but Congress is determined to break those people's hearts and poison their punchbowl. Legislators slipped CISA, a privacy bill that's been fought and rejected by advocates and legislators for years, into that same budget bill.

This version of CISA is even worse for privacy. The CISA that made it into the omnibus bill is even more explicitly surveillance-focused and pervasive than previous versions. Legislators stripped away the parts of the bill that prevent the National Security Agency from using the information handed over for surveillance purposes, and most alarmingly, they've removed the language that says companies have to scrub and anonymize the data handed over to protect their users from government overreach.

Now if we can only figure out how to get there quicker than the 205,000 years it will at today's speeds (+/- a few).

As long as we can have networks without modems I feel the sneaker net will prevail & file distribution is going to be your neighbor's archive stash or a local wifi network that a group of people set up locally to distro files. Invest in storage Shutting down the internet in such a way for control is just going to make hacking\penetration sky rocket imo.

Well, in 2014 Congress was understandably pissed...

Senators Okay With Spying On Citizens, But Outraged It Happened To Congress

Just not pissed enough to actually do anything about it. So, in 2015 it's deja-vu all over.

Report: Obama?s NSA Spied on Congress, U.S. Jewish Groups

"The NSA has spied on members of Congress, but acknowledging that would unnerve millions of Americans. That's why their official response to the letter was so evasive that CNN summed it up, "NSA won't say whether it spies on Congress."

The NSA noted "procedures that protect the privacy of U.S. persons," and said that "members of Congress have the same privacy protections as all U.S. persons."

The Danger of NSA Spying on Members of Congress - The Atlantic

In other words, you have no privacy.

Seriously? I don't even understand why. Dollar store pregnancy tests are all you need. They cost a dollar, and they let you know if you were stupid enough to get the girl you picked up off the corner pregnant.

Sobering chart on the worlds's money. Especially if you understand the implications.

All The Money In The World, In A Single Chart

You'll need to click on the chart to open then move it with the mouse/scroll bar up/down.

Remember derivatives from your 2008 days?

"The biggest surprise, for anyone not in the financial world, might be the size of the derivatives market. At the low end, it's estimated at $630 trillion. At the high end, $1.2 quadrillion. (Put another way, that's more than 1,000 million million, or $1,200,000,000,000,000.)

Derivatives fly under the radar, Desjardins says, because they've only been around since the 1970s, and they're mostly traded by people at hedge funds or investment banks, not individual investors. They're also hard to understand—they take different forms, but basically, they always get their value from something else, like an option to buy stock or a futures contract for a commodity like corn."
