This isn't martial law. This is making sure that one of the biggest sports events of the year - which involves packing thousands of people into one designated and widely broadcasted location - doesn't end up being anything other than a fantastic time for everyone involved. Seeing as how I can't properly appreciate the stress of being put in charge of what is effectively 14 Black Fridays rolled into one massive Mardi Gras celebration, complete with men in tights fighting over a pigskin, I can only thank them for their efforts to ensure the safety of our people.


You forgot to add "it's for the children".



Oh, I forgot the children weren't an inherent part of "our people".


no no, he's MAKING FUN OF YOU because you sound like you work for the government in the capacity of making new intrusions on personal freedom seem logical and necessary, which of course, they're not.

So much for Martial Law, apparently it was so crowded on the public transit system that a bunch of bags weren't even searched.

If you don't want to take the risks involved, don't go.

It's simple.

People like you that cannot function without the executive branch, or any branch, of government holding their hand and keeping them "safe" are the equivalent of a cancer to any free society.

The same people talking about martial law and oppression, I think, would be the first to cry out in indignation if something actually did attack the Superbowl and lives were lost. Either this government isn't doing its job, or it's doing its job too well. In other words, there's no winning with you people. Has anyone noticed that?

I've pointed this out before, and I'll point this out again. ATS is a collective of personalities. Some may think that the government didn't do enough, some may think that the government does too much. Maybe you could try paying attention to the individual posts and who their authors are?

The entire point of "combating terrorism" was to "preserve our way of life." I mean, the terrorists are attacking us because they hate us for our freedom, aren't they?

If we give up our way of life out of fear, then our enemies win.

I would rather accept the risk of living in a free society with all
of its inherent dangers, than to take even one more inevitable
step toward a totalitarian system where the government is responsible
for every aspect of safety.


I agree with your sentiments completely. People love their comfort and their "bread and circuses" more than they love liberty and freedom. They want their Big Brother Compound stacked with all the latest amenities.

I'm still looking for information...but so far, it seems like 30 people have died. twitter.com...Don't know if it's really "confirmed", but that's what they say.

Odd, all I can find is that it's a manhole explosion and that they are pretty common in NYC. Though that video did make it sound a little bit like the beginning of a zombie flick didn't it?

I will admit it is a little odd that someone predicted it yesterday after decoding an illuminati message.

Very well said, i agree completely, most folks seem to think that there will
be a vote or something when it finally tips over that point. Like they will
then have the time to file a court case and protect their freedom once
it is already lost.

The promise of safety which they cannot guarantee no matter their claims,
is hardly worth risking the loss of freedom, whether or not we are correct
the risk is still there and in my opinion its too big a gamble.

You really haven't a clue what martial law is do you?

It's called security. There are people out there who would love nothing better than to disrupt this sort of event.

Ever since the events at the Munich Olympics, security at sporting events is beyond tight.

Tacks on the road at the Tour d'France the year before last... That's the sort of disruption that could have, had it been on a downhill run killed someone, or several someones.

Doesn't have to be a suicide bomber to totally disrupt an event that is supposed to be fun for the people involved.

If that means a little over the top security? So be it.

Don't like it? Too damned bad. It's the world we live in. A shame, yes...

Nice Wonder,

Thanks for sharing....I don't have T.V. but am being forced to go to a Super Bowl party that is a 2 hour drive away.

I hate this stuff.....!!


There are some of us who don't have a life who would be glad for any reason to spend a few hours laughing and drinking with good buddies. That's the spirit of the Superbowl: good game, good people, great times.


panem et circenses my friend ... panem et circenses

but you are correct....family and friends are good.....very good indeed

Enjoy that, while you can. If you haven't noticed, those are the things that are under attack. Isolate, is the name of the game!!!

That doesn't change what martial law is.

Martial law does not change with countries.

Freedom means being able to choose.

People can choose to ride public transit to the game.

That is freedom.

Overreacting to security measures provided for people that choose them is silly


This is like telling my 8 year old,

"You have two choices. You can either go to bed on time, or continue to stay up past bed time and be grounded from the Wii".

It's not really a CHOICE you see. I just make it appear that way for the desired outcome.
