To make it politically difficult to oppose, proponents of the data retention requirements dubbed the bill the Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act of 2011, even though the mandatory logs would be accessible to police investigating any crime and perhaps attorneys litigating civil disputes in divorce, insurance fraud, and other cases as well.
Also hackers, don’t forget them.
Say, can we private citizens use the same cynical ploy? I hereby redub the Balanced Budget Amendment as the “Protecting Children From Fiscal Raping Act of 2011“.
Vote against that, bastards.
