A new US Senate Bill would grant the President far-reaching emergency powers to seize control of, or even shut down, portions of the internet. The legislation says that companies such as broadband providers, search engines or software firms that the US Government selects "shall immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed" by the Department of Homeland Security. Anyone failing to comply would be fined. That emergency authority would allow the Federal Government to "preserve those networks and assets and our country and protect our people," Joe Lieberman, the primary sponsor of the measure and the chairman of the Homeland Security committee, told reporters on Thursday. Lieberman is an independent senator from Connecticut who meets with the Democrats.




This is how it happens. By trying to make things look innocent when on the surface they look anything but innocent. NO matter how far the word has gone out, it seems to me that the Gov will do whatever it pleases. Have we not spoken loudly enough??

The things we will accept for our "protection" and to "maintain freedom"...

All they have to do is mutter the magic words National Security , it's like a force-field from all common sense!
