Posted on 02/01/2010 10:41:04 PM PST by BellStar
Without the ingenuity of Americas brightest minds and the investment of U.S. taxpayer dollars, there would be no Internet, as we now know it today.
Now, the Obama administration has moved quietly to cede control of the Web from the United States to foreign powers.
Some background: The Internet came into being because of the genius work of Americans Dr.Robert E. Kahn and Dr. Vinton G. Cerf. These men, while working for the Department of Defense in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the early 1970s, conceived, designed, and implemented the idea of "open-architecture networking."

I have a feeling this will be the straw!
Obama’s attack on the United States continues. If the world takes over this Internet and censors it, American ingenuity will build a separate net.
I guess the good news is that Google and Facebook go down..
Both Google and Facebook went around the bend to help elect Obama. Now they’ll crying the blues.
This article is total BS. Everyone knows Al Gore invented the internet!
Censorship is coming to the internet.
You have got to be kidding.
How many people in this country have any idea how the internet work?
How many people will ever hear about Obama surrendering the governance of the internet to a world body?
Once he surrenders governance to the internet how many will care?
This wont even be a blip on the radar of the American people until it is too late and probably long after Obama is gone.
The American people in large part are way to busy thinking about the Super bowl, the World Series, the Stanley Cup or who will get best actor award at the Academy Awards to worry about how their president is giving away control of the greatest force for freedom in world to an international body that despises freedom and the United States.
Hold up !
Do you really think it will be a blip on the radar once it’s changed or gone?
IT is a huge field where many know all the in’s and out’s of the internet.
Believe me, as soon as it disappears, all hell will break lose.
Heck, if Skype went down it would leave a huge hole.
And think of all the people who would have to attend internet addiction classes.
Like, all of us !
Sawry, I think you’re way off base re: the reaction of a lost internet.
He’s so worried about offending other nations, but he doesn’t care if he hurts the country he is President of.
Let those international dudes set up their on system and leave what we have alone.
Do you feel like a rational person in Russia in 1910 felt?
Yup. The sheep will be serfs as long at they have ball games, reality TV, beer and cheap food.
Though I wasn’t around then, yes!
The article tells us nothing. What, exactly, is the “plan”? I mean, we already know that 0bama and his ilk have allowed foreign entities on the board at IANA, but, what else is he doing? That’s what I’d like to know.
In our spam today we got our first spam email from of all places Russia in the Russian script..could not read it, it didn’t have a virus..I think it was one of those Nigerian style scams..the format had that look about it but the letters were not in an alphabet anyone would understand other than a Russian or Greek or one of those languages.
Calm down, they’re only one-world communists. No need to panic.
It will all be over soon, and then you won’t have the burden of all this “freedom” business.
Then begins the process of getting used to your new masters, that’s all.
Tyranny is not that bad, folks, relax. Millions have survived it.
This is not a big deal.
I mean, there is a REALLY good chance you and your family will survive the new World Government’s plans for this nation.
Behave normally. Do what you normally do and just chill the heck out.
We’ve been headed in this direction for some time. I know because I’ve been angry about it for years.
What bothers me is that when previous administrations were headed in this direction, the objections were quite muted.
