Senator Collins Promises. Don't You Feel Better?

Sure, we should give POTUS an internet kill-switch.

Sen. Collins says it'll be just fine.

...She said it would ‘provide a mechanism for the government to work with the private sector in the event of a true cyber emergency.

‘It would give our nation the best tools available to swiftly respond to a significant threat.'

Oh, yah, Joe Lieberman, extremist Lefty, also thinks it's absolutely necessary!

Former vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman, chairman of the U.S. Homeland Security Committee, said safeguards were needed to ‘preserve those networks and assets and our country and protect our people'.

He claimed national security was at risk from new foes such as ‘cyber warriors, cyber spies, cyber terrorists and cyber criminals'.

Scary! Awful!! Apocalyptic!! And pure BS.

I didn't trust GWB with "Patriot Act" powers, and I don't trust any OTHER President with a kill-switch. Especially when its promoters flap jaw about 'cyber'-anything. That's the equivalent of claiming that the Pubbies will put Granny on dogfood.
