I for one never plan on stopping the free exchange of ideas until Big Brother shoves a gun up my ass and pulls the trigger. Till then, they can talk about the legal ramifications all they want.

That said, this isnt the first time that the idea of the president being able to do anything in a time of peace without the need for review or proof has ever come up and it won't be the last.

The bill actually doesn't say anything about any of that.

It basically gives the president the authority to do to the Internet as was done to air traffic on 9-11. In my opinion, this is a neccessary thing, that probably will never be needed.

This is a law to do it correctly, with accountability and proof that a need exists. That was people breaking an existing law with no accountability and no need to provide proof that a need exists. A little different.

In fact, the law that existed for the secret court and all that (the equivalent of this bill) was in place, created expressly for the purpose of emergency granting of powers, and was ignored solely to get away with turture, rendition, etc., so in point of fact your analogy shows clearly the difference between the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration, so thanks.

the idea of emergency granting of powers is redundant however, if the need arises the power will be given, whether granted officially or not. the problem I have with this is that as deac said, it's probably not going to be necessary. As I believe that's the case the probability that it will be used incorrectly, either in this administration or future administrations is much higher than the probability of it being necessary and impactful in the way it was intended.

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel

There's a voice in my head that drives my heel

It's my baby callin', says I need you here

And it's half past four and I'm shifting gear

When she's lonely and the longing gets too much

She sends a cable comin' in from above

We don't need no phone at all

We've got a thing that's called radar love

We've got a wave in the air, radar love

The radio's playing some forgotten song

Brenda Lee's "Coming on Strong"

The road's got me hypnotized

And I'm speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely, and I'm sure I've had enough

She sends her comfort, comin' in from above

Don't need no radio at all

We've got a thing that's called radar love

We’ve got a line in the sky, radar love

No more speed, I'm almost there

Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care

Last car to pass, here I go

And the line of cars drove down real slow

And the radio played that forgotten song

Brenda Lee's "Coming on Strong"

And the newsman sang his same song

One more radar lover's gone

When I'm feeling lonely and I'm sure I've had enough

She sends the comfort coming in from above

Don't need no radio at all

We got a thing that's called radar love

We got a line in the sky

We got a thing that's called radar love

We got a thing that's called radar love

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
