Has anyone seen this bill S.3480 concerning the Presidenthaving the ability to shut down internet?

I am still searching for the actual bill and what it says but basically the President will have the right to shut down parts or all of the internet to prevent freedom of speech to prevail. This is my understanding so far. Does anyone else know more or can decipher it better?

  • And somebody had the nerve to ask if Obama was a socialist.


    I just wish the liberals would wake up and realise the progressives (SOCIALIST) have taken over the democrat party.

  • Isn't this a security measure? Internet security? I don't see that it wll prevent "freedom of speech". Hmmmm. I wouldn't worry about it.

  • Funny Barack H Obama was all against the Patriot Act until he got elected and then he was for it and even expanded it all.Now this! I would not be surprised if before the elections he and his minions find a way to declare martial law.
