Our only chance is to stop it in the Senate. Background here and here.

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian also urges us to contact Google, Facebook and Twitter and demand that they stand up to defeat CISPA:

    Told you. This is how they got the Federal Reserve Act passed. They just kept representing it until it passed. You can fight the various evil legislation, but in the end they’ll sneak it through. Hope you all are ready for that revolution because nothing short of a second American Revolution is going to stop these maggots.

    You are correct Jeremy, Farmers have been fighting Animal ID for over a decade but despite the promise it was not in the Food Safety Modernization Act it just got rolled out. Traceability comes DIRECTLY from the World Trade Organization and has been a complete disaster in other countries.

    The Australia Beef Association (ABA) told Americans Fight NAIS down to the last cowboy in March 07, 2008

    The condemnation comes from farmers around the world link

    The problem is the elite have gobs of money, patience and the MSM propaganda machine in their pocket. They have the legislation already written waiting in the wings for the ‘Right Moment’ That ‘Right Moment can be ten years down the road. They do not care whether or not they have to ‘compromise’ to get a law passed. All that is needed is A Law. As Paul Warburg said of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, “We can fix it later”

    …Warburg’s associates said, “Paul, what are you doing? We don’t want those in there this is our bill.” And his response was this, he said, “Relax fellas, don’t you get it? Our object is to get the bill passed. We can fix it up later.” Those were his exact words. “We can fix it up later.” He was so right. It was because of those provisions that they won over the support of William Jennings Bryan the head of the Populist Movement, the last hold-out against the bill. Bryan was concerned that this would be an instrument for ruining the nation’s money supply but when he saw those provisions he said, “Oh well, those are good provisions, I guess I can support the bill now” never dreaming that this was temporary. Everything is temporary in politics. When people go to sleep things can get changed.

    Warburg was right and they fixed it up later. The Federal Reserve Act since it was passed has been amended over 100 times. Every one of those provisions were long ago removed and many more have been added which greatly expand the power and reach of the Federal Reserve System to create money out of nothing. With this kind of professional strategy and deception these people were real professionals and the public didn’t stand a chance….

    The worst part are the one liners tacked onto something like the budget that authorizes a whole new bureaucracy and set of regulations. I have seen that one too.
