    Lieberman tells Web users to ‘relax’ about ‘kill switch’

    Lieberman, along with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE), introduced the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act two weeks ago. The bill would allow the President to disconnect Internet networks and force private websites to comply with broad cybersecurity measures. The president's power to shut down parts of the Web would be renewed indefinitely under the bill.
    Gee whatever happened to the first amendment?

    God I hate Joe Lieberman so much. My favorite part:

    "Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too."
    Any other lessons on censorship you'd like to take from China, Joe?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I don't think Obama has the balls to pull it. Even he knows that the flipping that switch would be like striking a match and setting fire to the country.

    That and it would splinter the entire network as countries develop their own in order to prevent the US from killing it in an emergency.

    At that point, the Internet would just die...
