Defense bill may sneak in internet ‘kill switch’

Apparentlly there are people on Capitol Hill, at Homeland Security, and elsewhere that have their thinking caps on tight for a ‘Trojan horse’ may be the shady vehicle Congress uses to ‘pass’ into law the internet ‘kill switch’ many of us are dreading.

If you care, get out the word!

For after all, if a seemingly pristine defense bill can harbor the likes of an internet kill switch against free speech in America, then ‘the terrorists have already won’, to quote a Bush-Cheney slogan of manipulation and cynicism.

Of course, total disconnection may have its merits, too.

Such as a response to nasty cyber attacks on vital services grids, government websites, another electronic bank run, etc. But HoSec has had years to improve our cyber security – and trillions of taxpayer dollars to do so.

Is pulling the plug all they can come up with? Puh!
