After Egypt, Will U.S. Get 'Internet Kill Switch'?

PC Magazine: "With reports of Egypt's government completing shutting down the Internet in the country, talk about an "Internet kill switch" bill in the U.S. has reemerged. Could it happen here?"

We're gonna head west. There's a rumor goin' around there might be some Internet out there. So we're headed out Californee Way.

No matter what happens cutting of the flow of information is something Communist or Fascist do. When you are trying to control people in an EVIL WAY, the first thing you do is cut off ways for people to communicate and organize.

Iran Election protesters did a great job using the Internet, Youtube/Video Phones, and Twitter to work together and get their story out. This form of communication shut down is OPPRESSION by a EVIL government.

We need to remember "one if by land two if by sea" if we are to keep our Independence and remain truly FREE cause what is happening in other countries will or has already begun to happen to us.

If they do, they would not use it until some dire circumstance occurs, as in..much worse than what is happening in Egypt ... maybe like if a firesale occurs

*Obama meets option to reformat Internet*, *Clicks yes by accident*... "Oops... I don't know how that happened, must be the guys in IT who did that"

Bush says " We will get are porn back and to those you took it.... Give us back are porn, it's not cool man" (Curse you Robot Chicken).

But really not cool.

So many people don't want to hear about the Government screwing us over. It's just easier to "sleep." One day you'll wake up and find the Control Machine in effect and it will be too late. Fuck Government Control.

study abroad is the chance to find yourself while acquiring a comprehension of an alternate culture. Being in another spot without help from anyone else can overpower on occasion.
