Something as simple and common as using an online pseudonym could technically be a violation of the law if the United States Department of Justice gets what it wants. The DoJ on Tuesday asked Congress to impose harsher penalties on various types of cyberactivities, including cybercrime. The goal, DoJ Deputy Section Chief Richard Downing told the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, is to improve cybersecurity for the American people, the nation's critical infrastructure and the federal government's networks and computers.

Another attack on liberty and justice....

This is just another case of bad law eroding liberty and justice for all.

It goes directly to making it criminal to exercise your right to free speech.

It also continues and encourages the egregious abuse of RICO laws which permit penalties to be assessed prior to any conviction and places defendants in the position of having to prove their innocence.

The US already has in prison a higher percentage of our population than ANY other country in the world. (US - 715 per 100,000; Iran - 226 per 100,000; China - 119 per 100,000... even 2nd place Russia has only 584 per 100,000)

Its hard to understand how Canada and Australia can manage with only jailing 116 per 100,000.

We also have more lawyers per capita than any other country (1 for every 265 people including men, women and children).

So are we really that more lawless than every other country?

Or do we simply have too many lawyers, especially in the 170 (according to a recent count) in Congress.

57 of these are in the Senate giving them a solid majority.
