    This is disgusting and extremely disturbing. The justification for doing so was more appalling than the passage of the legislation. I don't believe the average person understands nor comprehends the nature of this totally partisan 1984 Big Brother legislation. This was done for lobby campaign donations from the internet and media masters. What is equally appalling is the fact that after this Republican led and Trump signed uber erosion of online personal security -those who brazenly support the GOP and Trump, will turn their heads and look the other way rather than speak out at the very legislation that undermines their freedom of choice in determining who has access to their personal information.
