@3: Yeah, I should have figured I was not the first one to have that idea. One hopes that the major ISPs would at the very least restrain themselves to only selling the data to certain businesses and not individuals, but it is not like they have ever cared about their customers before.

I wonder how much it will cost to buy one person's search history for a year.

I mean, we know the names of the people that voted for this bill, and we also know where they live.

Nothing would eliminate this bill faster than a crowd-funded purchase of the search histories of several yes-voting congressional members, with the threat that they will be released for anyone who wishes to download them.

Not even really joking. I would totally donate for get to see the search histories of Congress' biggest bastards. If they don't care about our privacy online, why should they have any?

@8: If calling Spicer a boorish ass who has no sense of how to decently interact with any human is defending him, then I guess you have a point.

As an aside, if we had a true free market for telecommunications, this could be avoided somewhat by the consumer opting for providers that do not give away or sell private data. But of course, the telecommunications companies engage in illegal collusion practices to avoid free market competition.

Funny how those in government who are always talking about the market don't seem to care about that.

President Trump has just been given a golden opportunity to prove true to his word that he is for the American people, not the elitists. All he has to do is veto this bill, and he will be given begrudging credit from his critics, and his most fervent base will feel he is being true to them and his word.

But I don't hold out much hope.

@12: I can see you know very little about what that "organic" label actually means.

@6: I don't know about that, the guy seems to be a pretty equal opportunity boor:

“Glenn, this isn’t a TV program. You don’t get to just yell out questions. We’re gonna raise our hands like big boys and girls because it’s not your job to just yell out questions,” Spicer told [NYT reporter Glenn] Thrush when he continued to ask a question."

@7: No doubt about your first point, but pretending that only dwindling, pathetic demographics are blocking the Dems from winning elections is living in a fantasy land, and a classic example of losing by underestimating your opponent. I certainly am not going to argue against Trump being a lying con man, but that is kind of irrelevant to my point.

@8: Something tells me that Mr. Savage missed that particular news item. The unfortunate reality of this situation is that JCCs being vandalized and getting bomb threats is really nothing new, it is just getting the spotlight now because of a desire to connect all bad things to Trump. If Trump were not elected, everyone likely would have continued not caring.

@3: Eventually people are going to have to come to terms with the fact that it was not inbred Appalachian rednecks and basement dwelling Nazi manchildren who elected Trump.

The upper middle class voted for Trump by a large margin, the poor mostly voted Clinton. Trump got 42% of women and 30% of the Hispanic vote. He got about 45% of the suburban vote as well. About half of college educated individuals voted Trump, and he got the majority from those who have associate degrees or some college.

Your average Trump voter was a white guy living in the suburbs or a small town with some degree of college education and making upwards of 50k a year.

According to BLM Toronto, Trudeau is a "white supremacist terrorist."
