Just Like That Your Privacy Was Sold

Here is a helpful link to the way the US Senate voted today on allowing ISP (or Internet Service Providers) to collect data on every person in their database and now they  can SELL that data to "advertisers."

It should really tell you something,though.  When Congress wants something, they find a way to get it done.
