Shutting Down the Internet: Are They Kidding?

Shades of Egypt. Does anybody else see the irony?

There is a bill before Congress that is loosely referred to as the Internet Kill Switch that was introduced by Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins. This gives the President the power to literally kill the Internet. Other similar bills by Jay Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe are also being pushed. My advice is to leave the thing alone. This switch would do more harm than good, and I question the motives behind it. http://bit.ly/hJo2gp

DITTO!  I never trust anything the politicians try to ram down our collective throats. Especially when it comes to our civil liberties.

So what do you think? Is the there an evil catch, or is an internet kill switch a good thing? You tell me…

  1. I can never imagine of ban on internet. The congress can restrict the usage or even keep a watch on the restricted websites, but it can never put a ban on internet.
