Did Romney say MA has deployed roadblocks?
I thought I heard him say that on CNN or MSNBC today. Roadblocks and random ID checks in Massachusetts.

Can someone from MA confirm this?

1. Yeah they shut down the Ted Williams tunnel.
Oh no wait, that was because it was held together with chewing gum and super glue and its roof fell down and killed somebody. Now that scared the shit out of me. I'm not particularly scared by jelly bombs.

3. I thought it would be particularly awful...
...for such actions to take place in Massachusetts, considering its unique place in the American revolution against tyranny.

4. It's a test run for election day.
There will be roadblocks and checkpoints in all Democratic and minority districts.

5. The purpose of this is what? Strictly to promote fear. Will he arrest
Muslims for being Muslims? Pakistani-Americans for having a Pakistani heritage? Anyone carrying Gatorade in their car? WHAT is the frickin' point?

6. I also heard him say that there would be random
"trunk checks" of cars too. He wasn't clear why he was doing that nor just where these checks would take place. One can assume that he was talking about random checks at the airport, but with Mitt, who knows? He could randomly check trunks anywhere in town with that blanket statement.

I can't wait until he leaves this state.
