Senate votes to let ISPs sell your web browsing history to advertisers

I seriously hope Exede wouldn't do this. Basically, this will allow ISPs to double dip from their already captive market - first charging you for service, then selling your internet history for targeted advertising. This is officially the death of privacy, and the beginning of a new era of consumers being milked for profit.

Make sure you e-mail/write/call your congresscritter(s) and senator(s) and *TELL* them you won't be voting for them when next time they're up for office. They are *supposed* to work for us, but this bill can't possibly be something a 'regular Joe' like you or I thought up, so, who else screws up things in the government besides congressmen and senators? No one, that's who.

Make sure you also tell everyone you know about this and to make sure they too call/e-mail/write their congresscritters and senators. The jagoff swill get the message only then, otherwise it's just a few people complaining about it on forums and blogs and those same congresscritters and senators won't hear about how pissed off we are about it and they won't rescind the bill.
