I do not want any particular gov't (US or otherwise) to be "in charge" of the Internet any more than the next person. And good thing too, because it simply cannot happen, political pipe-dreams not withstanding.
But what has that got to do with the DHS promoting an idea to sign IP space allocations and/or annoucements? The idea in-and-of-itself doesn't sound wholly unreasonable. (I am not advocating this, just saying the idea shouldn't be rejected without consideration simply because the DHS said it.)
Why not take the idea and see if it is useful, then implement it properly if there is any use? All this vitriol over the US gov't trying to take over the Internet is silly - sillier than the USG thinking it can actually do so. They're politicians, they're ignorant of reality and therefore can be excused for not understanding how stupid they sound. All of you should know better.
