Who's watching the Watchmen

I don’t often tackle a purely political topic on this blog but I think it’s imperative that you pay attention to this

A new bill called the cybersecurity Act of 2009 has been introduced in the U.S. congress that while claiming to improve security gives the U.S. government (that bastion of logic, fair play and non partisan behaviour) the "right to shut down the Internet in an emergency situation and disconnect critical infrastructure systems on national security". This bill will let the Gov step in, control and shut down private networks, further it gives them total access to private information.

Read the entire article here If you are a U.S. citizen complain about this before they steal your data or find a reason to turn off the ISPs of sites that don’t agree with Government propaganda and misinformation. There is no such thing as a free market anymore and if Bills like this get passed free speech and a right to privacy could also be eliminated.
Do you trust those bastards? I don't

The US government can and will continue it's march to destroy all of the rights and freedoms gained in all of their country's centuries of existence. The US citizenry is helplessly (and for the most part, blindly) accepting whatever edicts are brought down "from on high" because they ~all~ now contain significant references to terrorism and Security of the Homeland; as a result, no one is even noticing!

This, at least, keeps the average taxpayer diverted from the real disasters affecting or about to affect their lives .. the meltdown and bankrupting of everything American.

The illusion of America being either the Land of Opportunity or the Land of the Free has died and it's occupants are about to be sold down the river.


.. or maybe it's just that new "I'm A Doomer" button on the blog!

So true, American just isn't a free country anymore. As a Canadian I travel there often and am always hearing about these homeland security warnings and other security measures. At the same time the US Congress is stealing from the middle class and poor to bail out "pay" their rich corporate masters. What has happened to this one time bastion of freedom and liberty?
