"Internet Kill Switch"

This looks like scary shet... that the president can just decide on shutting down the internet because of "Emergency reasons" or "Terrorist"

"Lieberman's bill, introduced last week, could force companies such as broadband providers, search engines, and software firms that the government selects to "immediately comply with any emergency measure or action" decreed by the Department of Homeland Security.
Because there are virtually no limits on the president's emergency power, which can be renewed indefinitely, the densely worded 197-page bill has encountered criticism from industry and civil liberties groups, which have worried about the ability to shut down parts of the Internet and raised concerns about "the potential for absolute power." (The sole limit is on warrantless wiretapping.)"

The Senate is planning on pushing the law forward. I don't want for that ONE day when somebody, you, or even us are checking on XXX news on some webs and BOOM.... "Network connection is Temporarily Down".
