The day the internet died

A version of a Senate bill would give Pres. Obama and the administration emergency power over the internet in the event of a cybersecurity emergency. The bill, which has gone through several drafts, proposes to allow the government to commandeer and disconnect private non-governmental networks during certain events and to require those networks to be run by certified "cybersecurity professionals" at other times. For details on the bill, visit here.


  1. You know I love Obama but people really need to pay attention to what their government is trying to do. Government is taking away our rights and privacy little by little and most people don't even notice until it is too late.

  2. china already does this and don't think the usa needs a bill in congress to do this

  3. I can't imagine Brits allowing Parliament to do something like this and we already live with terrorism. Americans need to work harder to protect their rights.
