Very concerned about violence in Egypt - government must respect the rights of the Egyptian people & turn on social networking and internet

Rubbish, eh? We'll see! You can't tell me that if the people in the US, in a particular state, were to do what the Egyptian people are doing that the Internet would not be shutdown at the very least in that state and its major cities. If people were suddenly denied their 'benefits', fuel prices suddenly skyrocketed, and food prices did the same, would the people affected in America do the same thing that the Egyptians people are doing?
Just heard on the news that this is a '...real security threat to the United States...'! Uh oh! If this continues to spiral out of control look for a national state of emergency to be imposed in the US, and soon! Internet access may likely be cut off and cell phone service as well.
Such rubbish and you keep repeating MSM rubbish
The Internet in the USA will NOT get shut down cuz of the riots in Egypt
RT @SAZ69CENT: American VP Biden says Mubarak is not a dictator. Yeah Biden Egyptians just have 30-year presidential terms

Like I said, we will see! IF events in the Middle East continue on their present course, and the oil supply coming out of Egypt is disrupted, and prices of crude oil rise excessively (which is happening right now), which effects the cost of everything else, what makes you think that people in this nation, in any particular state, or any particular city, wouldn't do what those people in Egypt are doing? Riots happened in LA that are very similar to the situation in Egypt today, but the Internet was not a widely deployed then, but now is a different story, isn't it? Riots have been happening in other nations as well because the economic situation isn't improving there, and here, so what makes you think that this couldn't happen in the US somewhere?
AntholoJ @weddady Tunisia new interim government used excessive violence today against peaceful protest many dead and injured reported.
I DID NOT POST WHAT YOU POSTED! I POSTED THIS "Just heard on the news that this is a '...real security threat to the United States...'! Uh oh! If this continues to spiral out of control look for a national state of emergency to be imposed in the US, and soon! Internet access may likely be cut off and cell phone service as well."
I POSTED THAT IF THE SITUATION CONTINUES TO SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL LOOK FOR A NATIONAL STATE OF EMERGENCY TO BE IMPOSED IN THE US, AND I WILL STICK TO THIS UNTIL THE DAY I DIE! I POSTED THAT THE INTERNET MAY LIKELY BE CUT OFF ALONG WITH CELL PHONE SERVICE. WHY? BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON!
