The very same thing is happening and the government at the state and federal level are looking at it as an income source...Where, you ask? Common Core State Standards and the mandatory student information data base that must be linked to each state in order to be eligible for ESEA/RTTT Grant money. This is far more concerning that the problems on the internet. They may annoy, but selling our children's personally identifiable information to companies that want to sell testing materials and textbooks is criminal. And the Obama Admin. and D of Ed are doing it. WV is blindly following along with it. Go to WV Against Common Core on Facebook.

"The American people are smart," said Sen. Jay Rockefeller

If this were actually true, Obama would not have been elected twice.

Continued: therefore a waste of time and effort. It is too bad the Senator doesn't have the same concern for the many ways the government invades our privacy, as he has for the commercial invasion of our privacy.

Another law that won't work. The "Do Not Call List" doe's not work. In fact, around election time, the phone NEVER stops ringing. Even the cell phone never stops. We all know that any information you give to anybody, including the government, gets bundled with other peoples info and is sold for a profit. These law-makers are a joke. Don't they have more important things to do?

Don't want them to have all that personal information? Then stop giving them all that personal information. Duh... As always, there's a price for all that free stuff.

politics is nothing but a show for ugly people.. while they fleece the people they represent, they are putting on a show to try to make people think everything is done to help the people of the country..

Sure, let congress waste time and money on ANOTHER law that won't work, won't be enforced, AND WILL be ignored. We're all familiar with the "Do Not Call" law and most of us are familiar with the fact that its being ignored and/or circumvented. Get real Rockefeller, do something constructive (besides retiring).

lawmakers need to fess up to the stuff they pass in dark of night. they need to give the American paople a one month window to disconnect from all high tech gadgetry and cancel their service providers for privacy respect.
