    From the "evil" CBS News:
    Internet Companies may not be concerned but anyone who loves freedom of speech should.
    Apparently this isn't subject to Judicial Review either.
    So "vital Internet or other computer systems" will be whatever they want to shut down and it will not be subject to any oversight.

    At least Warrantless Wiretapping had the FISA Court. This has nothing even close to that kind of oversight.

    Very bad.

    Typical, though.

    Anytime you give one branch of government power to side-step another you're raping the constitution.

    Anytime that anyone connected to government tells you not to worry, you better watch your ass.
