    Lieberman Bill Gives Feds ‘Emergency’ Powers to Secure Civilian Nets Read More http:

    Lieberman and Collins’ solution is one of the more far-reaching proposals. In the Senators’ draft bill, “the President may issue a declaration of an imminent cyber threat to covered critical infrastructure.” Once such a declaration is made, the director of a DHS National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications is supposed to “develop and coordinate emergency measures or actions necessary to preserve the reliable operation, and mitigate or remediate the consequences of the potential disruption, of covered critical infrastructure.”
    Yea, nothing fascist about this. Nothing at all.

    Look at those two clowns with the shovels.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Does this bill, if passed, give him the power to do it? Yes it does. Is he likely to do it? No he isn't. But the President, no matter who it is, should not have this type of power period. We aren't living in mother Russia where the people are supposed to fear the government, we are living in the United States where the government is supposed to fear the people.
