I understand security reasons from terrorism, simply because if you look at most terrorist acts it involves internet involvement somewhere. Although it usually is too late before you realize it so shutting down internet wouldn't do much but still for home security it's worth while to have.

He should really start considering what the people want. who wants an middle aged man to control the internett ? I know i wouldnt. Let the IT guys control it not an person that should be runing an country not the whole world :P But sometimes it may look like he runs the world.

Don't overestimate the power of the USA, if they "shut down the internet" they can ONLY shut down the servers in the USA. Google, Microsoft and other large companies all have backup servers in Europe :) In fact, if they "shut down the internet" I give it a month before everything is moved to Europe :)

this bill is actually alright, probably should be reworded by cyber warfare is NOT old and in order to block avenues to government databases, various outlets would have to be cut.

this is way better then australians internet censorship which got knocked back but is likely to pop up after election as a new shiner bill.

besides, failure to do so is merely a fine if you dont comply. hardly the gestapo "we lock you into a prison at an unknown destination and electrocute and waterboard dissenters"

Patriot act (started by bush, renewed and continued by obama) is already in place and is far more invasive.
