Joe Lieberman Wants To Take Away Your foursquare Access

New legislation recently proposed would allow the President emergency powers to seize control of or even shut down portions of the Internet.

Senator Joseph Lieberman(I-Conn.), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, is the primary sponsor of the bill. Mr. Lieberman continues his one-man mission to make the Internet hate him.

Nicknamed “the kill switch,” the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, would give the federal government power to declare “national cyber emergencies” and force private companies to comply with emergency internet decrees with previously unprecedented strength.

The bill, if passed, would also create a “National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications” under the Department of Homeland Security.

Should we just pack up and move to China?
