Letter to Mark Pryor regarding Bills 773 and 778 on cybersecurity.

Dear Senator Pryor,
My name is David Wyant, I am a junior in High School in Harrison. I am sending this email regarding bills 773 and 778 currently sitting on capitol hill. I am expressing an opinion both as a US citizen and an Arkansan. I do not believe the bill fit, or constitutional. According to our first amendment rights, we have the right to free speech, assembly, and religion. If these bills we're to pass, all privacy the internet is famous for would be lost. China has already made a decision like this. Where has there ever been a risk of cyber emergency? Maybe I'm just ignorant but it sounds to me like Jay Rockefeller just wants to know what we are doing all of the time. What if we were to end up like china where all we can do is see what the government WANTS us to see? If I'm missing something here, please email me and educate me about the bill. I understand the need for a cyber security system on the PRIVATE level but on a national level just seems a little exaggerated to me. What are the formal parameters of a cyber emergency?
Thank You for your consideration,
David Anthony Wyant
16 years old

Good Vibrations, Cold Weather!

I'm finally starting to feel better after being sick for a week, but mother nature decided to cancel the fun with an ICE STORM! I was going to go talk to Coach Peacock (AD, Rog. High) about joining football in off-season, but low and behold, school gets canceled 20 min. before i could get to his office. I'm sure I can see him later this week when it thaws. Talk at ya later!

Back in action!

I recently decided to call my scout leader and ask if I could come back, to my surprise, he said yes and he gives me rides! I only have a year and 8 months left, but if I give it my all, there's a good chance I can still come out with my eagle!

Saturday, next Saturday, and the Saturday after.

I'll be working on my truck. she's all back together, but she's still knockin' under the distributor. It's a good thing I love working on cars, or i'd probably be crazy by now. On another hand, a good friend of mine just gave me the body, frame, and rear end of a 1966 Ford Mustang convertible. I'm thinking of dropping a large motor in her, but I may rebuild her factory, tell me what you guys think!

Just some tunes!
