“...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 people of the ENTIRE STATE are FORBIDEN to drive or be on the road after 4pm on pain of a YEAR in prison and $500 fines! COMRAD DEVIL Patrick thinks he is Stalin or Hitler and Mass is his own personal communist STATE. There is about a QUARTER OF AN INCH TO A MAXIMUM OF JUST TWO - THREE INCHES OF SNOW at most on the ground NOW AT 3:54 PM IN MASS!

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.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a state of emergency . . . Patrick signed an executive order banning all . . .

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.

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.
