Goodbye Fourth Amendment
"Won't somebody please think of the children!" will be the rallying cry for the dawn of legalized search and seizure.

Appropriate in this situation.
In my opinion CISPA, PIPA, SOPA, ACTA and similar bills, just show the weakness of government when the median age is high. Most politicians don't have a clue how the Internet and the digital age works.

Obama has promised a veto, but yes, why are people not outraged by this? Did they spend it all on SOPA?

SOPA was a worldwide problem. CISCO is more a only usa thing, for now. Also It take effort to move people, and it as something like a cooldown. I don't think a site like Wikipedia would have joined another blacking websites day, except if others websites would follow.
I hope you guys restore the democracy back in your country.

America criticizes China and Iran for the censorship and control of the Internet, but they are constantly trying to do same thing.

We here in the UK have had a self-appointed, self-regulated non-governmental internet censor for a long time: the Internet Watch Foundation. They operate a blacklist of sites which is unpublished and is not vetted by anyone outside of the organisation but which most (if not all, I haven't been keeping tabs on these things for some time) ISPs in the country block. By all accounts they're largely ineffective.
As far as privacy is concerned CISPA just makes official a situation which already exists through less obvious channels. Seems some [responsible party is trying to formalise the]/[progressive element is drawing attention to the questionable nature of the] (delete as appropriate) relationship.
