The Cyber Security Act of 2009 MUST be defeated.
Quote:There’s dangerous legislation being considered on Capitol Hill — a bill that would actually give President Obama and a bureaucratic czar emergency control of the Internet. The “Cyber Security Act” being advanced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) presents a significant threat to your personal liberties. If enacted, this sweeping proposal would, in effect, hand complete control of all electronic communication to the federal government, a disturbing move that is triggering constitutional concerns.

If you don't like my link/source, do a simple Google search for the keywords "Cyber Security Act 2009" and judge for yourself. I do, however, suggest you sign the petition at the American Center for Law and Justice (linked above) to help fight this legislation.

Just think how hard it already is to find non-mainstream technology on the internet. How much of the ideas and information found on this forum would be completely lost and unable to be spread without the help of the 'net? This is very important.

Hope and Change thing? Unless you're referring to Hussein's "Yes We Can" campaign, I have no clue what you're talking about. FWIW I knew he was a socialist/commie long before he was elected and I voted Ron Paul.

Sorry I didn't mean that as an insult to you. All the people that voted for him here, said he was the promise of Hope and Change. No one took time to find out who he was,but on the other hand John McCain. How did that happen?

Ron Paul 2012. And you are right about Obama. The problem is most Americans are still stuck in the left right paradigm and dont realize that most of Republicans and Democrats and even third parties are all in bed with each other. The only one I have found trustworthy through my research is Ron Paul. It was a shame that the bought and paid for media did not give him the attention he deserved during the 2008 elections.

If you want to go deeper into the Rabbit hole visit http://www.infowars.com, also look up illuminati, bildeburg group, the new world order. These are the puppet masters that control many of the power nations and banks.

Must watch Fall of the Republic on You Tube!! and pass it on,
Oh and my Reps on the Hill probably know me by heart now. lol. I have been lividly protesting all the bad bills going on right now. Health reform, Cap and Trade, Gun bans, Cybersecurity...... the list goes on and on. Help us bring back the republic.

The one bill to support is HR1207 and SB604 to audit the fed.

Also help campaign for Ron Paul or at least vote for him if he runs in 2012.

Fight The Future!

RE: The Cyber Security Act of 2009 MUST be defeated.
Here's more information for whoever doesn't want to spend the time on Google.

Quote:OpenCongress Summary
This is comprehensive legislation designed to address our nation's vulnerabilities to cyber crime, global cyber espionage, and cyber attacks. It would establish a new Cybersecurity Advisory Panel within the White House and stream-line the cybersecurity effort through all levels of government. The bill also calls on the Department of Commerce to establish and maintain a clearinghouse on information related to cybsecurity threat and vulnerability information to public and private infrastructure deemed "critical" by the President. The Secretary of Commerce would be given access to this information "without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access." The bill would also give the President new authority to "declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the limitation or shutdown of Internet traffic to and from any compromised Federal Government or United States critical infrastructure information system or network."

Official Summary
4/1/2009--Introduced.Cybersecurity Act of 2009 - Directs the President to establish or designate a Cybersecurity Advisory Panel to advise the President. Defines "cyber" as:
(1) any process, program, or protocol relating to the use of the Internet or an intranet, automatic data processing or transmission, or telecommunication via the Internet or an intranet; and
(2) any matter relating to, or involving the use of, computers or computer networks.Directs the Secretary of Commerce to:
(1) develop and implement a system to provide cybersecurity status and vulnerability information regarding all federal information systems and networks managed by the Department of Commerce; and
(2) provide financial assistance for the creation and support of Regional Cybersecurity Centers for small and medium sized U.S. businesses. Requires the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish cybersecurity standards for all federal government, government contractor, or grantee critical infrastructure information systems and networks. Makes NIST responsible for U.S. representation in all international cybersecurity standards development. Directs the Secretary to develop or coordinate a national licensing, certification, and recertification program for cybersecurity professionals and makes it unlawful to provide certain cybersecurity services without being licensed and certified. Requires Advisory Panel approval for renewal or modification of a contract related to the operation of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority. Requires development of a strategy to implement a secure domain name addressing system. Requires the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support specified types of research and to establish a program of grants to higher education institutions to establish cybersecurity testbeds. Amends the Cybersecurity Research and Development Act to expand the purposes of an existing program of computer and network security research grants. Requires the NSF to establish a Federal Cyber Scholarship-for-Service program. Requires NIST to establish cybersecurity competitions and challenges to recruit talented individuals for the federal information technology workforce and stimulate innovation. Requires the Department of Commerce to serve as the clearinghouse of cybersecurity threat and vulnerability information. Grants the Secretary access to all relevant data concerning such networks notwithstanding any law or policy restricting access. Directs the President to:
(1) develop and implement a comprehensive national cybersecurity strategy;
(2) on a quadrennial basis, complete a review of the cyber posture of the United States; and
(3) work with representatives of foreign governments to develop norms, organizations, and other cooperative activities for international engagement to improve cybersecurity. Requires the Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Commerce to submit to Congress an annual report on cybersecurity threats to and vulnerabilities of critical national information, communication, and data network infrastructure. Establishes a Secure Products and Services Acquisitions Board to review and approve high value products and services acquisition and establish validation standards for software to be acquired by the federal government.

Notice the part in bold. Also notice that this act covers basically all forms of digital communication. THIS is the kicker. Remember the mandatory shut-down of analog TV transmissions a little while ago? How much broader could they make it? They're saying that whenever they deem necessary, the president can shut down ALL forms of digital communication. Not only the internet, wireless digital data networks, and telephone networks but also television broadcasts. The bill doesn't define what a "critical infrastructure information system or network" is and for this reason (among others), the bill can too easily be used to silence dissidence and public outcries.

I'm often amazed at the continued grab for more and more control over our lives. The government already has control over all electronic communications through the FCC and the right to eavesdrop on your phone conversations, e-mail, how many rolls of toilet paper you bought, etc. through the Patriot Act. Don't you just love those names: "Cyber Security", "Patriot"! The government really thinks if they give something an innocuous name we won't discover it's really sinister. I think it was Ben Franklin who said any country that sacrifices its freedom for security deserves neither.

I love that term: "Plantation Politics"; says everything in just 2 words and covers about 150 years of American history too. Thanks.
