    Amazing how sheeple dream up unintelligible crap to support fascist bills like this one.

    Yep, LucasFoxx, This is a big deal, stepping on our rights is no doubt a big deal to American patriots. This “security bill” flat out disregards/abridges our first amendment! Why can’t you see that. Do you even care about our bill of rights? Are you even an American? You don’t sound like one. Yes, I do have to question you. Even if you did sat down and read this bill, you just seem not to care about the crap it brings. We don’t need a youth core to tattle tale on people that the government deems to be bad. We don’t need the government to decide what websites can or can not be on the web. We don’t need thumbscans or eyes scans or some kind of liscense to be able to access the web! I just don’t get people like you.

    Where, in this bill, is your abridgement of the 1st amendment?

    This bill would possibly be constitutional if it only applied to servers and infrastructure owned by the federal government. They do not have the authority to designate private property as ‘critical infrastructure’ and then regulate the hell out of it. Designation of property as ‘critical infrastructure’ for the sake of some mythical concept of ‘national security’ does not trump private property rights! Otherwise, we truely have a fascist system in which the government can and will dictate how and when we use our property. It’s cybersecurity infrastructure today…what will it be next month, next year, or a decade from now? Where will you draw the line?

    I am researching this bill for a college paper that I am writing. At first I was a little less interested in this bill as it was something that just fit the criteria that I was working in. However, I as I read the bill, I became more interested. While I agree that we do need to invest in Cybersecurity Defense, I cannot agree with this bill as is. First it places too much of the responsibility on the Secretary of Commerce. While it is obviously that preventing disruption to commercial networks (financial specifically) is very important, there are several more police-type agencies already in existence that would be more qualified and better equipped. More importantly, as this bill is written, it allows far to much interpretation as to what constitutes a critical “private” network and specifically allows government run clearing house to collect data from these ambiguously defined networks without regard to current law and statue. It also allows too much freedom for the Executive Branch…

    Is Stallin hiding in our Senate? Has Carl Marx been resurected? What has happened to this nation?

    The very thought of a member of our government thinking about something like this sickens me.

    Sadly enough though, they are not just thinking about it…they are doing it.

    This is completely ridiculous. It is funny that the majority of dissent, at least toward this current administration, can primarily be found on the internet, as well as talk radio. They are targeting talk radio with the “fairness doctrine” and now this is their attempt to stifle the free flow of information and opinion on the internet. I rely almost exclusively on the internet to make my living as a freelance editor. Not to mention that I receive all my bills “paperlessly” and pay those bills online. Shutting down the internet would completely cripple commerce and this country. Isn’t that what such a “cyber terror attack” would hope to achieve. So instead of such an attack being a causing a minor disruption, the government will do the heavy lifting and bring everything to a standstill for the terrorists! Where are all of the liberals and ACLU types when it comes to this one? For all the people who don’t think we are on the road to socialism…look again.

    Listen hear you globalist Jay Rockefeller, you NWO scab, I know about your great grand daddy John D (sr.)who was a snake oil sells-man and who helped bring in the Federal Reserve CARTEL to destroy this country.

    Nobody wants your stinking censor the internet bill except the mind-controlled sheep, the only terrorist is you filthy scum-bucket not the fake AL-CIA-DUH you people keep fear mongering about to the American people, you will NEVER have your New World Order plan that you and your family desire.

    Freedom Will Prevail, you maggot

  • dihayden29 07/22/2010 2:28pm

    Well towards that end, I say screw the Government in thinking of “developing a new world order”. Its not North Korea its USA! Either protect, acknowledge and follow the Constitution written by our Forefathers where its says "We the People…. or be voted out plain and simple.

    Looks like Rockerfeller doesn’t want people finding out about his family ;)

    Beware of false flag cyber attacks

    Is the gov’t that concerned about DDoS attacks from Chinese script kiddies?

  • ReVox 09/07/2010 5:46am

    Internet is the most democratic thing today in the world and Of course that’s why it doesn’t work for most governments in many cases, because internet gives so much information governments do not want you to know. And that is the main point why this bill is created !!!
    ROCKEFELLER KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF INTERNET!

  • JustinCA 04/02/2011 7:34am

    Unbelievable… DO NOT support this bill. This is a blatant attempt to gain control via information, and believe that’s where all the power is. The more information you give up, the more power you don’t have. Next you know, they’ll want to read your mail before you… That’s what they do to people in prison!

    ROCKEFELLER and his uncle David Rockefeller are the top illuminati in the U.S. and the internet is ruining their plans of the GLOBAL NWO takeover, and enslavement of people. They are DIRECTLY responsible for all these wars and the bankster thefts from Treasury to Wall Street. The Rockefeller Foundation financially backs 95% depopulation via toxic vaccines and chemtrails. He will CONTINUE to propose bills of this type unless he leaves congress. Vote fraud will keep him in. I’m OUTRAGED by his even proposing this bill. The U.S. is NOT secure BECAUSE OF congress’ open border policies. The internet has nothing to do with it, except to awaken people to his family’s EVIL. Rockefeller should turn his FULL ATTENTION to the ILLEGALS CROSSING THE BORDERS with no hindrance from Homeland INSecurity. THINK ABOUT IT: Has Senator Rockefeller EVER proposed anything GOOD for the American people?
