The good news is that the Senate defeated gun legislation that would have introduced draconian background checks and assault rifle bans. The best part is getting to see the butthurt from Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein. There's nothing I love more than seeing libtards cry!
The bad news is that the House has passed CISPA, or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protect Act. If this bill manages to receive approval from the Senate and President, then the federal government would be free to request user information from internet service providers without a warrant.
So while our gun rights are safe, our internet privacy may be lost. We preserve one freedom only to lose another.
Our federal government is like a giant squid suffocating us with its tentacles. Just when you've pried yourself lose from one tentacle, another one wraps around you more tightly, and as it does, deprives you of what little freedom you have left. You want to fight back, but the lack of oxygen makes it hard to do so. The question remains, how do we escape?
Great! This fishy analogy is making me crave calamari, and I don't even like it. Bleh!
