Because it usually translates to "The Statists need this". In this case, there's more than a little irony, too.
The House Judiciary Committee approved legislation on Thursday that would require Internet service providers (ISPs) to collect and retain records about Internet users' activity.
CNET reported the bill would require ISPs to retain customers' names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses for 12 months.
Not surprising to find Wasserman as a co-sponsor, either. Slime, personified. (When did Lamar Smith start emulating The Hildebeeste?)
The irony? Smith voted to smother the children in US debt. Who's REALLY for "the chillllrun"?
UPDATE: List of Statists-in-Pubbie-Clothes follows. We are pleased that Jim Sensenbrenner voted against this crap!
