They Truly Do Hate Our Freedoms

No, not them.
These fucks:

Cybersecurity Measures Will Mandate Government “ID Tokens” To Use The Internet

"The move to shut down and regulate the Internet under a new government-controlled system has accelerated into high gear with the announcement that the government’s cybersecurity strategy revolves around issuing Internet users with ID “tokens” without which they will not be able to visit websites, the latest salvo against web freedom which, in combination with Senator Joe Lieberman’s ‘kill switch’ bill, will serve to eviscerate the free Internet as we know it.
Under the guise of “cybersecurity,” the government is moving to discredit and shut down the existing Internet infrastructure in the pursuit of a new, centralized, regulated world wide web.
It is important to stress that “cybersecurity” has nothing to do with protecting the infrastructure of the United States and everything to do with taking over the Internet. Cybersecurity is about attacking non-compliant Internet users, not defending against hackers. Non-compliance equates as using the Internet as a political tool to dissent against the policies of the U.S. government. Having already tried and failed in
flooding the web with paid disinformation agents, the government is now turning to its only recourse, exploiting hyped or outright staged cyberattacks as an excuse through which to implement an Internet 2 system controlled and regulated solely by the authorities."

DSL service has been down 3 days in the past week in my area. Of course, they claim to be working on the lines, but i wonder if this is some kind of test to see how much they can get away with it.

Funny business going on with my ISP too nick. I fully expect our internet to soon become like the shopping channel on cable, only a commercial enterprise with completely filtered content.
