    THE FORUM MASCOTT...
    I was about to post a response to the census thread and instead of a reply page i got one of those unable to display pages. Well, periodicly the forum does have a hiccup and i cannot get on. So i figured i'd go to one of the other forums i occasionally go to that are gun oriented. Each and every one of them came up with the same cannot display page. Other forums or websites did come up though.... That is just a bit odd !!!!!!! :mad:

    Makes me wonder if that power to shut down the internet thing that obama wanted was actually the power to shut down "specific" websites if he wishes? How better to test such a capability than to "flash test" it to see if it works? No need to stop websites for a very long time...just long enough to see if the program works...

    Speaking of weird, bugs, etc. - there was a guy dressed up in a bee costume walking down the hall a few moments ago chanting "Bee Safe. Bee Safe."

    It's Skynet taking control:eek::p:D

    but seriously, I agree with you. I'd expect the gov't to see if they could shut down specific "subversive" websites down first. They they'd move up to shutting it all down at once.

    How do you explain all of my gun forums not being able to display but others like salt water fish forums coming up as normal?

    Maybe i am paranoid but dang that seemed odd....

    Oh yes, I agree with you. I have no doubt that the feds would like nothing more than to shut down every site about guns or that tells the truth about Barry.

    We all need to have some sort of plan to keep in touch with each other just in case something does happen in a SHTF situation and we have no Internet!:) Where will we go to find each other? How will we know what's going on in other states?

    Keep in mind that many of the firearms fora are coming out of the same source. The source has a problem and a bunch of fora goout at once. I've seen this before.

    Another thing I've seen is where a telephone link going, say, West will have a problem and the ones going other directions are still good. If your connection to a particular serving hub happens to be to the West, you are down for them until the chain gets rerouted or the link comes back up.

    Or it could be Holder testing, testing, testing.
