All Your Freedom of Movementt Are Belong to Government
Fines and jail if you survive the drone strike.
How does he expect people to get home?
Oh please...What is up with these people? I’m looking out my Massachusetts window right now...Color me unimpressed so far.
“...There are currently 1,000 National Guard troops, and Patrick said nearly 5,000 would be in place over the course of the weekend...”
The ruling class sure does think they are smart these days.
Fine them $500.00 and give them a year in jail...and let them out in the middle of the next blizzard?
And what if you don’t know about it? Not everyone has a TV.
All your home are belong to US (gov that is).
And out of curiosity, how are people who work 9-5 supposed to get home?
Don’t let an opportunity to impose your tyrannical will go to waste...
Ignorance of the Edict-of-the-Minute is no excuse...??
If I lived in Mass I would be raising holy blazes over his single handed declaration of martial law and the suspension of personal liberty.
The people of Mass are ruled like SERFS, or slaves... because they let themselves be ruled as such.
What about 2nd and 3rd shift at hospitals and other emergency workers.
I worked ICU during a blizzard once.. 16 hr days, slept on site. Got pretty old after 3 days.
I’m in Chatham, been raining for past two hours, heading out for a drive shortly.
If "Universal" background checks (except for criminals) goes through, instead of "vehicle" enter "background checks on gun sales". Viola! Instant gun ban. Now imagine this on a "National Emergency".
That happened in California during their latest riot. "Public Safety" you know (cough).
Get after your Congressman and Senator on this point.
When is this ban supposed to be lifted?
I just got a recorded call from my son’s college telling me that Governor Patrick had done this. I laughed into the phone and yelled, “I’m in New Hampshire! Ha!!!!” Now I have to go see if our liberal governor did the same....not that I plan on going anywhere, lol.
