SOPA/Killswitch Bill Sneaks Back Into Congress And Are Stronger Than Ever - Get Ready For Round 2!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) will lead his second effort of 2012 to push Internet-regulating legislation, this time in the form of a new cybersecurity bill.
The expected bill is the latest attempt by the Democrats to broadly expand the authority of executive branch agencies over the Internet.
The details of the bill still remain in secrecy but clues available to the public suggest that the bill might be stronger than President Barack Obama’s ‘Killswitch emergency cybersecurity’ proposal, which was released in May 2011.
The Killswitch bill allows the president to ‘declare a cyber emergency’ and shut down the internet.
Reid said that he would bring the bill — expected to come out of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, chaired by Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman — to the floor during the first Senate work period of 2012.
Just to be clear:
This bill is worse than SOPA, it will censor the internet and allow the President to shut it down much like what happened to Egypt during the Arab Spring
The Obama Administration not only supports the likes of the bill, but proposed it
The Government will have full control over the internet
The Government will have FULL CONTROL over the internet 
Private-sectors, the state and the government will be granted immunity
The Government will have full control over the internet
Websites thought to be ‘infringing’ copyright laws will be seized by the government
Internet entrepreneurship will be endangered
YouTube will disappear (oh no!)
If you haven’t lost your faith in the Obama Administration, take a look at this. Obama plans to create a law that would mandate every American to have an ‘internet id’. 
SOPA is not dead and neither is the Killswitch bill. As soon as I have any new information I will update this post.

you thought I didn’t really notice. But I did. I wanted to high-five you.

Yesterday I had a pair of brothers in my store. One was maybe between 15-17. He was a wrestler at the local high school. Kind of tall, stocky and handsome. He had a younger brother, who was maybe about 10-12 years old. Thy were talking about finding a game for the younger one, and he was absolutely insisting it be one with a female charcter. I don’t know how many of y’all play games, but that isn’t exactly easy. Eventually, I helped the brothers pick a game called Mirror’s Edge. The youngest was pretty excited about the game, and then he specifically asked me.. “Do you have any girl color controllers?”

I directed him to the only colored controllers we have which includes pink and purple ones. He grabbed the purple one, and informed me purple was his FAVORITE.

The boys had been taking awhile, so their father eventually comes in. He see’s the game, and the controller, and starts in on the youngest about how he needs to pick something different. Something more manly. Something with guns and fighting, and certainly not a purple controller. He tries to convince him to get the new Zombie game “Dead Island.” and the little boy just stands their repeating “Dad, this is what I want, ok?” Eventually it turns into a full blown argument complete with Dad threatening to whoop his son if he doesn’t choose different items.

That’s when big brother stepped in. He said to his Dad “It’s my money, it’s my gift to him, if it’s what he wants I’m getting it for him, and if your gonna hit anyone for it, it’s going to be me.”

Dad just gives his oldest son a strong stern stare down, and then leaves the store. Little brother is crying quietly, I walk over and ruffle his hair (yes this happened all in front of me.) I say “I’m a girl, and I like the color blue, and I like shooting games. There’s nothing wrong with what you like. Even if it’s different that what people think you should.”

Big brother then leans down, kisses little brother on the head, and says “Don’t worry dude.”

They check out and leave, and all I can think is how awesome big brother is, how sweet little brother is, and how Dad ought to be ashamed for trying to make his son any other way.
