A Threat to the Net

Here we go again..
"A recently proposed but little-noticed Senate bill would allow the federal government to shut down the Internet in times of declared emergency, and enables unprecedented federal oversight of private network administration."

Every time we turn around Our Government, Our Elected Officials are throwing some deluded chaos theory at us in an attempt to raise the threat levels so that ANOTHER piece of intrusive legislation can be passed (IE-Patriot Act) and give them MORE control all the while stripping away at our rights and civil liberties!
Cybersecurity Act of 2009


"Furthermore, the bill contains a particularly dangerous provision that could cripple privacy and security in one fell swoop:

The Secretary of Commerce— shall have access to all relevant data concerning (critical infrastructure) networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access…"


Last week they said that the Chinese and Russians are a threat to our power infrastructure.
So first they feed bullshit to the MSM and raise the threat level. Later when they pull the plug on our internet they can impose censureship to control the masses political discourse. Like China..

I fear once they have the power and 'unplug' we would lose the diversity of smaller websites, networks and systems to the big multinational MSM bullies that are already under government control. Another troubling aspect of this bill is Secure DNS ( Secure Domain Name Service) which could be used to limit US traffic to US sites.
It's like they had movie night at the White House and watched 'Live Free or Die Hard' and somebody thought 'Ya know, this might be a good idea to exploit.'
Unplugging critical systems is NOT the answer. Oy, I may have to get a CB..

Here again we are confronted with a calculated deception or they just aren't competent enough to make rational decisions.
The ' internet' is an open door to the world but the different elements of an infrastructure should act independently as an 'intranet' and as a secure closed network.
It would be kind of stupid to put access to critical systems on an open public domain.. Duh..
This cyberscare is propaganda.. a' false flag'..

So basically what this means is that it really does not matter who is "in power". Once the election is over and the dust settles (since the Bush admin saddled up and rode out so to speak) those with the power do whatever they darn well please anyway. What "change" is this I wonder? Seems to be a continuation of the same old same old to this reader.
The 'Hope & Change' we were promised seems to be subjective.
Not what I anticipated.

And yes, it does resemble more of 'the same old, same old'.
*Same delusional strategy behind the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.
*Same violations of privacy through warrantless wiretaps.
*Same ignorant policy embraced in the 'War on Drugs'.
