Doesn't President Obama have the power to shut down the Internet?
Never fear, true nerds are very resourceful. Do you really think the best hackers/IT persons are employed by the Govt?
Why do you think some hackers get offered deals to lighten or dismiss charges?
Work for us, do what you enjoy with no repercussions AND get paid for it.
Congress passed their Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) last Thursday, and have already put their “nuclear option” (this is what bloggers have come to call it) to use by shutting down OnSmash.com and RapGodFathers.com, which makes me really sad because I used those sites, and you probably did too.
As a frequent user of torrent websites, the most popular form of peer-to-peer file sharing, Campbell immediately realized that he had forgotten to shut off the software before heading to school the day before. So as he sat in his classes one Wednesday in September, he was actively sharing television shows with other Internet users.
It was at the end of the following day when he received what he describes as a generic-looking email that said he was found to be engaging in some questionable activity online.

Thousands of potentially embarrassing US documents are due to be published by whistleblower website WikiLeaks - but the organisation says it is under cyber attack.
The secret files - believed to be the first batch of up to 2.7 million documents to be published - are expected to be released this evening.
But Wikileaks has written on Twitter: "We are currently under a mass distributed denial of service attack."
ROME (Reuters) - The expected release of classified U.S. documents by Wikileaks will be the "9/11 of world diplomacy", Italy's foreign minister said on Sunday, urging Italian prosecutors to investigate the whistle-blowing website.
Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, on a trip to Qatar, said he did not know the content of the files to be released but warned they would "blow up the relationship of trust between states", according to Italian news agencies.
The cables published today reveal how the US uses its embassies as part of a global espionage network, with diplomats tasked to obtain not just information from the people they meet, but personal details, such as frequent flyer numbers, credit card details and even DNA material.
Claims of inappropriate behaviour by a member of the British royal family
Classified "human intelligence directives" issued in the name of Hillary Clinton or her predecessor, Condoleeza Rice, instruct officials to gather information on military installations, weapons markings, vehicle details of political leaders as well as iris scans, fingerprints and DNA.
The most controversial target was the leadership of the United Nations. That directive requested the specification of telecoms and IT systems used by top UN officials and their staff and details of "private VIP networks used for official communication, to include upgrades, security measures, passwords, personal encryption keys".
Have 1 back for being gracious

Collecting DNA from who and what purpose?
And hacking computers at the UN, then they have cheek to try and get all this banned.

Well I guess we get to find out now where the main stream media's loyalties truly are.
It sure doesn't look like they are all being controlled by TPTB at the moment!
