Senate 'Internet Kill Switch' Bill Moves Forward

Quote:
A Senate committee on Thursday approved a cyber-security bill that has prompted concern about a presidential "Internet kill switch."

The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee unanimously approved the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010 (S. 3480). It now moves to the Senate floor for a full vote.

Our government at work, here is what I got trying to view the story on our Homeland Security website. Instills confidence

Hi there.

why don't these politicians just give up and move on to something more important like getting the global economy moving again.

You *might* be able to "kill the Internet" in Small Town america (or Small Town anywhere else for that matter) but in most places including bigger US cities this is TECHNOLOGICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

You can cut phones etc but there is NO WAY that the USA or any other country can unilaterally cut Satellite links.

Iternet reception via Satellite will STILL be available even after a "Presidential Kill Switch" - unless the USA controls ALL the satellites operating in the "Clarke Belt" - 22,000 mile geostationary orbit over the equator where most Satellites used for communications, TV etc reside - which doesn't even pass over its territory.

I'd demand some refund of your taxes if your politicians are wasting time on this junk.

Cheers

Mind you this "Internet Kill Switch" thing is wildly misrepresented. That is just what everyone latched onto. It's like with the health care bill where there was an outcry because there was supposedly a panel to decide end-of-life care. I wanted to post the synopsis form that website that had an error serving me my error. There is a 194 page pdf file that god knows I do not want to read! A Guy

don't worry, in the words of nancy pelosi; the bill is too long for us to read, we'll find out what it means after the president signs it into law. we're much too busy to read all these things.

I will verify that Nancy Pelosi did say on television, more than one station. Just sign the bill you will have time to read it later. Well there trying to slip another bill through before anybody can read it. Anybody want to take bets that there will be a little ( user fees ) a tax slipped in there also.

And yes,, there are Death Panels in that bill. Along with Rationing. Yes, they are actually one in the same.
It is unsustainable without Rationing and Death Panels. When someone can prove to me otherwise when 47% of Americans do not pay a single dime in taxes and of those a large majority actually get a bundle back? And you are going to sustain Socialised Health Care... I really only have one thing to say......

Yeah, our current politicians are more trouble than the problems they're trying to solve!
