ARE YOU READY TO BE TURNED OFF?
The Senate Homeland Security Committee and the office of Governmental Affairs have approved a cybersecurity bill. Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins have co-authored bill S-3840 that says to ensure national security in a “national emergency” president Obahma or any other sitting president can pull the switch on internet access to all citizens.

This bill comes at a time when fears of an evacuation of the Gulf states are on the minds of some. Mine included! This does little to ease those fears and is scary to me. We need this now? Nine years after 911 and years of war in two countries and now all of a sudden it is in our best interest to give the power to the president to shut down the internet to all of its citizens? Is the Gulf disaster the national emergency this bill refers too? Are any other disaster such as an earthquake, hurricane, or attack of some kind all that is needed to implement this law? How serious does a situation have to get before this goes into effect? Who decides? I would like to know more about this and not see this voted for, just to see what is in it!
This bill now goes to congress. This can’t be a popular bill with GOP’s, but do they have the power to stop it? Do they want to stop it? The health care bill made it through, so it stands to reason this will also. I thought the homeland security act took care of this? How much more do they want? Is something on the horizon or is it just the fear of what the future could bring if this is not passed? How about a bill or ‘act’ that actually looks out for the citizens of this country instead of the elite? Will this cover cell phone communications? The old timey land lines some people still have? The postal service? What about our right to assemble? Peacefully of course.
Is the internet already censured? I don’t see a lot of pics or vids coming out of the area around the Gulf as it is. No fly zones and people told to stay back from the clean up area?
Clean up worker at Fourchon Beach
Look at what this guy is wearing as he vacuums up oil. That has got to be a hot and nasty job. They are hiring everyday! The pay is decent and you get to work outside on the beach! I saw one of these the other day with a girl in a bikini and a guy like this right beside her. (Lost the link) I can’t see any American supporting this bill. Write your congress critter and tell them to vote NO! E-mail list of all congressmen. Hurry before the call for “lights out” hits us!
