Isn’t it ironic that a Rockefeller is championing the bill? Authoritarianism is suggestive of a successful adaptation, which in this case, shutting down the internet would require a backup plan to keep the natives from killing each other. So, on those grounds, I say NAY to the bill unless I see where they’ve brainstormed a regression to paper, pens, and cashiers that still know how to count. But what authority am I but a micromanaging pincher of pennies?
There’s a few alternatives or (somewhat) practical safeguards for the internet fears such as loss of info or exposing too much vulnerable info. But if a cyber pro really wants into your business, there’s little one can do to keep from being compromised on every level. Teenagers have hacked our Gov. Known criminals who successfully eluded capture for a time for cyber crimes, now work for our Gov. Getting caught was a lucrative venture, I suppose?
Nearly all banks provide a debit card for purchases and c/c transactions without having to bank online. I’ve never used online banking but haven’t had to order any more checks in years.
You can also get a hardcopy of all of your medical records, free or for a small fee, from any doctor. They belong to you.
Granted, if the internet shuts down? Oh well. The handshake and bartering system will have a new rise in perfected honor and purchasing popularity. Make lots of friends.
Yep, the world runs electronically, now, but your personal info is something a terrorist would be least interested in, IMO. I don’t think a terrorist or an acting member of Big Bro’s “secret eyes” give a crap about us and our all-personal info (on our level.)
A well thought out and put together EMP would do more damage than 9/11. The massive amount of fear=panic=riots=internal disaster of the worst kind: Americans destroy each other while the perps watch it all at a safe distance on high def satellite.
I don’t like what we’ve come to, but I don’t want to go back, either. I don’t like the Patriot Act, but the IRS has had as much power if not more, forever, they just have different agendas.
Is the Prez truly such a threat to us? Remember. He and all his kinship will be under the same eyes and electronic crisis, including his wife, children, friends, supporters, etc. Maybe then we’ll really find out if he’s a qualified citizen? LOL. I think He and his background will be as obsolete as the system governing the protocols of the “matrix” by the next election.
“Haw haw,” says the person developing the latest advancement toward an updated cyber- crisis to our comfy little set-up.
and what IS Rockefeller doing to ensure his bankroll will be accessible to him while America is closed for business?? That’s the personal info I most want to access.
