H.R. 1981, the nefariously entitled "Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act," is actually a wide-ranging Internet surveillance bill that has no place in the United States of America. (Why not call it the Protecting Kittens From Harm Act? Or the American Prosperity Guarantee Act -- just a B.S. name so that politicians in the House and Senate are strong-armed into voting for it, even though it contains utterly insane 1984-style Big Brother surveillance provisions. WebProNews recently called H.R. 1981 a "turd wrapped in cotton candy," actually one of the more diplomatic assessments of the bill.)

It's on the fast-track to becoming law, and it's authored by Rep. Lamar Smith, who created SOPA.
