Fed Gov take control of Internet TODAY - should we be worried ?

Tags: Off Topic
President Obama has the POWER TO PULL THE PLUG on the Internet here in the United States, just like Hosni Mubarak's administration did in Egypt during the uprising. The FCC's Net Neutrality Act, passed by a vote of 3-2 along party lines on December 21, 2010, gives "kill-switch" authorization to the federal government.

The full implementation of this Act will take place 60 days after the date of the Act, which is FEBRUARY 21, 2011.

THIS MEANS THAT ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST, (TODAY) THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE CONTROL OF THE INTERNET.

This means that the government will be able to REGULATE THE INTERNET and any other interstate communication service they choose, WITHOUT Congressional oversight.

That's a great article you wrote.

With the Net Neutrality and Internet Kill Switch arguments being thrown around - especially in the day of 2,500 page bills - it's hard to separate hard facts from political demagoguery.

Your article did a great job in doing just that.

I haven't been following your stuff, as late, but it appears that you're very well informed on the issue, and can offer a voice of reason, so to speak.
