I had heard about these cherckpoints before. Actually, anyone within 100 miles of any US border is considered to be in a high risk security zone and can be detained and otherwise have his or her constitution rights violated in the name of “Homeland Security”. In the state in which I live, which borders those highly terrorist Canadians, two thirds of the state, including where I reside, fall within this zone. Therefore, I should be careful not to say anything anti-government for fear they will take me down, hold me, confiscate my property, etc. Actually that wouldn’t be much worse than the economic vice they have me in already. But there may be some of you out there who have property or family that you care about enough to not have the quasi-government overstepping their bounds like this. Pay attention. This is your “transparent” government at work. Only you can prevent forest fires.
