It's Your Privacy Topic for Today Is: Government Regulation of The Internet: Consumer Good or Privacy Bad?

The U.S. Government is proposing a universal Internet "Driver's License" in order for Internet users to be able to access the Internet. A type of "trusted identity" system that is supposed to know that it is you, and not an identify thief, that is accessing the Internet.

More proposals would give the President of the United States the ability to flip a "kill switch" and effectively shut down the Internet. And in light of what happened in Egypt, is that such a good idea?

Are these, and other proposals that are being talked about by the United States government worthwhile ideas? Are they good for the consumer or simply a nightmare when it comes to your Internet privacy?

You won't want to miss this informative and possibly controversial show as we explore these concepts and analyze the rhyme and reason, if any, behind them!
