Egypt today. The United States, next year?

The counter-terror force, rarely seen on the streets, took up positions in strategic locations, including central Tahrir Square, site of the biggest demonstrations this week.
Facebook and Twitter have helped drive this week's protests. But by Thursday evening, those sites were disrupted, along with cell phone text messaging and BlackBerry Messenger services. Then the Internet went down.

I can honestly see this happening here soon, especially after that fucking punk Obama mentioned something about "investing" in the telecommunications industry, a not-so-gentle hint that he's trying to take the internet over.
You know what? Maybe we should listen to the folks with ham radio blogs. Seriously, let's give them a read.
Maybe we should all invest in an inexpensive pair of 2 way radios to stay in touch with your loved ones when all of a sudden you can't dial out.
Lets get our Go-Bags and shit together. Better to have and not need than to need and not have.
Fuck Obama.
