John McCain’s War On Blogs

John McCain has made clear that he doesn’t like the blogosphere.

Now he has introduced legislation that would treat blogs like Internet service providers and hold them responsible for all activity in the comments sections and user profiles. Some highlights of the legislation:

He is just another no good trader / turncoat, who hates the constitution cause it gives "we the people," the right to investigate and write about the lies and corruption.

As the person who alerted me to this report said, "Some yahoo is too damn stupid to properly configure his P2P software
and we're back to "it's a bunch of TUBES!".......



[url=http://news.com.com/Congress+P2P+networks+harm+national+security/2100-1029_3-6198585.html?tag=nl.e404]Congress: P2P networks harm national security
[/url]

WASHINGTON--
Quote:
Politicians charged on Tuesday that peer-to-peer networks can pose a "national security threat" because they enable federal employees to share sensitive or classified documents accidentally from their computers.

At a hearing on the topic, Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) said, without offering details, that he is considering new laws aimed at addressing the problem. He said he was troubled by the possibility that foreign governments, terrorists or organized crime could gain access to documents that reveal national secrets.


Some comments from the link:

Quote:
What if somebody uses a car to rob a bank are you gonna fine the car manufacturer ?

How about the freakin' federal/government employees NOT using p2p programs while working, being paid off the taxpayers' money ?

A bunch of old farts who never got an idea of what technology is


Quote:
Not long until the Demorepublicans suggest it should be banned.




Quote:
Kim Il Sung could not have said it better

There are no p2p networks in North Korea. No internet either. Finally, our congress is realizing everything it has in common with unreformed Stalinism. Now if we can just push a few more mergers through and develop that state-sponsored-monopoly dominated economy we will be set.

Heck, maybe we should even ban peer to peer communications that dont involve computers. If government officials socialize with groups of citizens, they could also be duped into giving out information an unwittingly assisting in a plot.

So, we really need to keep people in their houses, watching Fox News and CNN, and we should put those on a 20 minute tape delay. If people want to assemble in public, they should have to get permits and have an fbi chaperone.

These knee jerks might just as well say that COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES are a threat to national security


The POLL at the link is interesting, too.
