This tid bit of info gathered today from media blog Cynthia Turner should scare you .....this is what China does - are we headed into a Oligarchy Tolatarian State - and I don't care what you're politics are but this ain't good - we have been hit with Cyber attacks before and we have dealt with it so, this makes no sense unless someone wants to really control what you watch, read and listen to - this is not, in my opinion, good for Democracy and it is another attempt to strip your freedom away a little bit at a time - be afraid - very afraid ........

Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Tom Carper (D-Del.) introduced legislation that would authorize the President to shut down the internet (like the Egyptian government did last week - PS,...they did it to keep their people from communicating with each other and to sending and receiving news and information from inside and outside the country) to protect the U.S. from "cyber attacks." The President must notify Congress of his intention to do so, and the emergency measures cannot be continued beyond 120 days without congressional approval.
