THE I-F-A-W HAS RESCUED A TOTAL OF 152 STRANDED ANIMALS THIS YEAR. RICH: YOUR INTERNET BROWSING HISTORY COULD BE SOLD WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. THE SENATE VOTED TO UNDO REGULATIONS THAT WOULD HAVE BANNED INTERNET, CABLE, AND MOBILE PROVIDERS FROM SELLING YOUR BROWSING HISTORY TO ADVERTISERS WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT. SOME LAWMAKERS SAID FORCING PROVIDERS LIKE VERIZON AND COMCAST TO ASK YOUR PERMISSION… WOULD GIVE COMPANIES LIKE GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE. BUT SOME PEOPLE ARGUE IT’S STILL AN INVASION OF PRIVACY. EVERYTHING IN THAT SHOULD BE PRIVATE, EVERYTHING YOU BROWSE, EVERYTHING YOU LOOK AT. NOBODY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT OR WHAT YOU’RE DOING ON YOUR COMPUTER, THAT’S YOUR OWN BUSINESS. THEY SHOULD EASILY HAVE TO ASK OUR PERMISSION. RICH: THE MEASURE STILL HAS TO CLEAR THE HOUSE, AND GET SIGNED BY
