Please don’t feed the paranoids.

The paranoids are at it again and the idiots in Congress are working very hard to feed them. The latest one is an absolutely ridiculous bill that would give the President the power to shut down the internet, and at the same time shut down his presidency because the country would never forgive him!

Considering that virtually all commerce now is dependent in some way upon the internet, closing it down even for a day would be political suicide.

And it would not work. I have no doubt that some genius would figure out a way to recreate it using the old citizens band radios in a matter of days.
