Yes. However, Democrats usually do not run around screaming about less government and reduction of civil liberties. Rarely have I ever heard a Democrat claim to want less government, as R's from Texas have a bad habit of doing. I am not surprised by the bill, or what it plans to do. I am fairly liberal guy, but one thing I usually do not support is reduction of civil liberties, either directly or indirectly, if at all possible. I know there is a sliding scale, or slippery slope when it comes ot laws and how they are viewed, especially as precendent. Even though this law will not affect me in any way directly, indirectly it pushes the scope of government to control us even more. I do not like Cornyn, Republicans, or politicians in general. I do wish they would try to preserve as much of our liberties as possible. I did not intent to ramble. My apologies.

Once again a Republican, this one from my state unforunately, will try to take away civil liberties for "protecting the public". They (R's) claim to be for less government, but they are seriously are wolves in sheep's clothing. I do not mind more government honestly, I just dont like hypocracy. I did not vote for him during the last election, I am sad to say he is my senator. Cornyn has a horrible history of bad voting choices. I know I need references, but im lazy.

Dear Canada, As a citizen of the United States I would like to remind you that in this era of supranational treaties and rampant globalization, that you are nothing without the rest of us. I would gladly "fuck off, eh" but it seems that while you claim that your economy seems to not be "in the toliet" you can largely thank your other industrialized counterparts. Mostly the U.S. We buy your natural resources, and we give you global security so that you can sell your products in foriegn markets safely. Also, speaking of the economy, the U.S. buys 79.8 percent of your exports http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Canada) .Considering that most of your 32 million people are sitting within 100 miles of the U.S. border, you benefit from the closeness with the U.S. While the U.S. and Canada are different countries and should have the freedom to determine their own destinys, Canada just needs to accept that its fate is forever tied to the U.S. Thank you, and have a nice day. -tlongshore

Identifying weak links in the system is irrelevent as an excuse. That is what the secret service is for. This is one twitter account you should not mess with. Common sense did not prevail here. If he does get prosecuted I will not feel sorry for him. Law of Darwin should take effect. He was not smart enough to make it in society. I mean how stupid/arrogant do you have to be to mess with the POTUS? And the besides what the OP/TFA says, This should not be considered hacking. Unless you want to equate me hyjacking your car by finding the keys hidden in the glovebox.
