Obama wants your Internet connection

Well, Obama asked for it a while back but now, in a revised Senate Bill, Senator Jay Rockerfeller (D) is asking for the same thing.

It is a little disturbing to see that the US Government wants to exercise its increasingly draconian powers over its constituents by telling companies who can manage their networks and by being able to pull connectivity to the Internet when it deems a Cybersecurity Emergency is happening.

And this, with the push from almost everyone to host your business in the cloud on someone's servers. The cloud is looking more like a few isolated gatherings of water vapor than a solid foundation on which to base your company network and its data.

Does that sound fair to you? Does it sound more like democracy or totalitarianism?

it was never a democracy. Constitutional Republic... I like totalitarian. The right is throwing around Fascism/Socialism now (not completely inaccurate) but totalitarian fits a little better with the end game.

Completely agree with you here ...Obama and his cronies are to Freedom in the Cyberworld as Stalin was to the First Amendment to the US Constitution...which guarantees Freedom of Speech!!

People wanted chage here in the USA and we got it way too far left for sure...Lets hope we All Survive!
