Control the media so that only the stories you want are let out and spun the way you choose. Get everyone on the government cheese wagon, disrupt the benefit supply if they dissent. Control the guns to the point where people have no ability to revolt. Stop communications as you see fit.
I'll just go sit in the corner with the rest of the "whackos" I guess...
I feel the same way. I couldn't believe when I watched the press conference and they said they shut down all cell phone service around the marathon area...
link stating the service was shut down by the government, and not the phone companies:
A law enforcement official, citing an intelligence briefing, said cellphone service had been shut down Monday in the Boston area to prevent any potential remote detonations of explosives.
But officials with Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel said there had been no such requests.
