S.773 - Cybersecurity Act of 2009 - This is an insanely scary bill that just made it out of committee which includes the ability for the president, without oversight, to

"declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the limitation or shutdown of Internet traffic to and from any compromised Federal Government or United States critical infrastructure information system or network"

What are we, Iran? Unless "critical infrastructure information system or network" is clarified, this has a high probability of being abused. I really hope congress doesn't give this the time of day, otherwise there is some letter writing that needs to be done.
