When I read the news this morning I was SHOCKED! ~ Well not really. More like surprised. In the news this morning, I read an article that caused me great concern. It wasn't of a religious nature, nothing from the religious groups causes me all that much concern, since they all seem to revolve around faith and damning anyone that doesn't believe the same way they do.
This issue is of a more secular nature, I could see it being used by the religious groups everywhere to censor and control what is said but in reality I see it more as a China or Egypt of late issue.
Congress is SERIOUSLY going to pass a bill that would effectively give the President the ability to 'turn off' the Internet on a WHIM. See this story: Kill Switch. The truly scary part about this is there will be NO congressional oversight on when and how the President can declare a state of "cyber emergency" and shut down the internet. Being able to kill the internet is never a good thing.
If congress passes this, welcome to the USC (United States China).
