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
