We're all just victims of circumstance

You'd have know that someone like Joe Lieberman would be behind something this stupid.  If this goes through, we can be just like China and Iran.

I can't figure out why these people don't realize that if the measures you take protect us from terrorism destroys the freedoms you're supposedly protecting, that the terrorist  have won already.

I generally like Lieberman, but this is a monumentally bad idea.  It smacks of dictatorship all over the place.  In short, NO WAY!

lol strongly disagree with indiana smith. I'm sure he's a nice guy but JOe Lieberman probably freaks out actual communists with his commitment to destruction of liberty, not to mention our christian heritage through his relentless liberal positions on abortion immigration gay marriage etc.  Things i don't even care about but can't help but see as sinister when he supports them. I think he even vetures out to try and bellyache about vilent video games and Howard Stern types from time to time. and of course he favors any and all possible wars, the lynchpin of his anti liberty and anti americanism

Wow!  Lester and I disagree on a political topic!! Imagine that!

Funny, I don't agree with Lieberman's social liberalism, but respect him BECAUSE he is one of the few on the left who understood the absolute necessity of fighting Islamic terrorism.  In short, Lester likes NOTHING about Lieberman, and I like his foreign policy stands but not his domestic issue stands.

Fairly typical Republican/Libertarian split.

But the Internet Kill Switch is still a TERRIBLE idea.

Considering the internet is, you know, kind of an international thing, how could they make people in other countries shut it down?  Wouldn't you have to shut down the whole phone and cable TV system as well, since they're so closely linked?  And wouldn't losing all communication be kind of a bad thing in time of national emergency?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
