If it makes Leftists mad, something has to be RIGHT about it.

Cybersecurity Act of 2009

The people at Electronic Frontier Foundation are warning us about the Cybersecurity Act of 2009.

This one just about as bad as government running healthcare. Probably more internet savvy individuals would consider both ideas equally bad.

This 2009 act would place the internet security infrastructure under control of the government. This of course would give government the final control over any secure data, such as your health and your financial data.

Here's a particularly scary portion of the bill:

The Secretary of Commerce— shall have access to all relevant data concerning (critical infrastructure) networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access…

This pretty much gives the government the back door into all your data without the requirement of a court order, or any other emergency reason for accessing it.

It also presupposes (without good evidence) that the government could create or maintain more secure systems than private industry.
