Effective 7/67/12, DHS can take over all private communications in "emergency"; Is this ok?
Original post made by Perspective on Jul 30, 2012
If I read this right, Obama signed into law, through Executive Order, of course, Dept of Homeland Security ( the name still gives me the creeps, like our "Czars") taking over all private communications in an emergency. Wired and wireless, including the internet, on July 6, just a couple weeks ago. Where was the news?
I am getting seriously creeped out, folks. The power of DC is growing exponentially over us, and I am very nervous. I don't think it is at all ok for our Feds to be able to take over the internet "in an emergency". Define emergency. Define controlling our commmunications.
What about you?
