Their way of seeing the world (humanism) puts certain people (themselves) in an elevated position, who are then justified in substituting their [superior] decisions for the decisions that individuals would otherwise make.

Check out the traffic cams on the highways - people are heeding the “law of the land”

http://www1.eot.state.ma.us/boswebcammulview.aspx

Heck, even if you do go out - there’s no where to go - everything’s closed because everyone needs to be off the roads.

We have all become ‘non-essential state employees’

The more horrendously awful the Governor of Massachusetts can portray the coming storm to be, the more horrendously extravagant can his requests for FEMA funds be.

Oh please...What is up with these people? I’m looking out my Massachusetts window right now...Color me unimpressed so far.

You obviously didn't get the memo from the governor.

LOL but when they illegally get there the store workers (for food, medicine or hardware only) will have legally driven there. Makes little sense.

This policy actually comes from the 1950’s Civil Defense regulations. The roads were to be closed and were to be watched by National Guard to assure that roads would be clear for emergency responders.

Sort of forces a rethink of the Bug Out Or Hunker Down debate. You must bug out BEFORE the government freezes the roads “for the common good”.

FEMA disgusts me.

Nothing more than another perpetually growing entitlement program.

Clear the roads and get the power back up, then get the hell out of the way.

I have been telling conservatives for several years to get out of New England while they still can...there may come a time when they decide you won't be allowed to leave.

Just kidding...right?

“The people of Mass are ruled like SERFS, or slaves... because they let themselves be ruled as such.”

There are quite a few conservative Bay Staters, but by and large the populace is liberal. I have lots of relatives there and lets just say we don’t talk politics. Or religion either. They love the nanny state. Want all things about liberty in the Constitutional sense banned, don’t want to know God...this is what they want.
I feel for FReepers in that state.

Any one caught driving after 4 p.m. faces up to one year in jail and $500 fine.

Why doesn't he just shoot them on sight? Save the taxpayers three squares and a cot for a year.

If its anything like Florida their is a freakin dollar store on every corner or like in NY a 7-11 on every corner. lol.

By what authority does the governor claim the right to impose a $500 fine or a year in jail on free citizens for driving on the road?

“Drive in the snow...1 year in jail.
Steal $1,200,000,000.00 from MF Global...nothing”

Friends and contributors get a lifetime “Get Out Of Jail” card. Corzine probably could even drive in the snow and not go to jail!

Just out of spite, I hope Boston is buried until July and it starts snowing again in September! I told my leftie work colleague that this big snowstorm was obvious evidence of global warming (I was joking) but he completely agreed. Of course, the prick drives a big SUV and pukes CO big time - but he cares for the planet so I guess it is ok.

Wow! You are right- if they enforce this, only government trucks or the ones “under contract” to civic authorities can plow.

I used to use a four leaf spring, 2 solid axle 4x4 Suburban (high ground clearance) with 31” snow tires to commute to work. Some days I was nearly the only one there (getting off the clogged freeway and going down unplowed two lane roads was much faster - and way more fun).

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!

Yes, but if the driving ban saves JUST ONE LIFE, it is definitely worth the cost.

Even a RINO isn’t as stupid as a Democrat Governor.

So, what if EVERYONE defied the King’s Order? Would they start building new Jails after the Snow melted?

If I lived there, I would back my Car in and out of the Driveway into the Street. Criminal, Serf, Criminal, Serf...

It would be just like loading 8 Cartridges into a 10 round Magazine in New York and taking one out and putting it back in. Criminal, Serf, Criminal Serf...

For a brief moment I thought this was another John Semmens satire Posting.
