'Net Security or 'Net Command/Control?

Back to the Good Old Days of "Patriot Act" raw-power statism.

An amalgamated cybersecurity bill that lawmakers hope to pass before the end of the year includes new powers which would allow President Obama to shut down not only entire areas of the Internet, but also businesses and industries that fail to comply with government orders following the declaration of a national emergency – increasing fears that the legislation will be abused as a political tool.

Nothing can go wrong.

I await the howls of indignation from those on the left against yet another blatent power grab by the executive branch. But since its their guy in the chair, I won't hold my breath.
