To: I want the USA back
Last two paragraphs of the article:
A number of prominent human rights organizations, including Freedom House, Human Rights Watch and the New America Foundation come out publicly against the DOTCOM Act, arguing that the bill undermines Americas moral authority by lending credibility to authoritarian regimes that point to American oversight of the domain name system as proof that the U.S. isnt as free as it claims to be.
We share the DOTCOM Act sponsors goal of a free and open Internet, New America Foundation Policy Director Kevin Bankston said, but the bill actually threatens that goal and plays into the hands of those who want to use the Internet as an instrument of political control rather than preserve it as a global platform for free expression.
Looking the first paragraph of these two, like I said above, there's no R.E.A.S.O.N to do this. It's a lame brain idea from the Commerce Dept. They are afraid other countries will say nasty things about the US if we don't give this precious resource away. When's the last time you heard anybody complain about the way we're running this?
Typical RATS, this is all about feelings. Haven't you heard? The US is full of racists who want to dominate the Internet!

Exactly what the current regieme desires.
