Here in NYC they are even telling us how to travel, they must be out of their Dog gone minds!!I am with rd, if they are afraid stay home and get out of our way!!!  You would think that people who have lived with this weather all their lives whould at least know how to travel in it by now!!! Please people!Shocked

I thought you were in Panama and wondered about some of the lottery comments you made, but knowing you are in NYC clears them up.

 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

    No biscuits and gravy only day old McD's.

    Baltimore city's police intake is a disaster area no telling when you will be released. If they want they can lock you up and forget about you for an unspecified period of time if your a trouble maker.  

    Phase three snow emergency means no vehicles allowed on the roads except ambulance, fire, police, and guard units, snow removal equip..... at one point yesterday the gov... even pulled all the states vehicles off the roads.

    The big wigs are ever so grateful that most Marylanders stayed off the roads and that no one lost their lives during the storm.

    However just about an hour ago some person was killed when a small bobcat backed over him/her in a gas station that was being plowed..

    Looks like the gov will have to outlaw snow removal equipment too so everybody is 100% safe and secure. That person would be alive today if only the gov had outlawed any form of snow removal.  Afterall, it's going to melt eventually, right? That person died because the gov didn't protect him from snow removal equipment!

    We obviously need more laws to protect us!

    We must demand more government control over everything we do!

    We need bigger government and more laws!

    Everyone call your Congressman and demand that we be permanently placed under Martial Law until safety and order is restored!

    In the meantime if you hear anybody make a disparaging remark about the government, do the patriotic thing and turn them in!

          Look man you cant be that dense these laws were on the books for many decades. Laws were made for the people many of which were voted on by the people. If i were the Governor i would have declared martial law. No citizens would even be allow to walk outside let alone drive until i lifted it.

          There were people walking in the streets in front of 5 and 10 ton dump trucks trying to plow the roads this was moronic.

          70 plus inches of snow in 5 days a blizzard to boot white out conditions. Most 20 year olds have never seen this kind of snowfall before and we have never had that much snow fall in recorded history.

          Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

            I agreed with you about Martial Law and the need for a government boot on our neck and a nanny state to protect us from ourselves and you say I'm dense.

            I don't get it.

                  I don't get it.

                  Can you or anyone of your god ol boy friends drive through 20 foot snow drifts. In some parts of the county roads were invisible for miles and miles with 50 ft drifts due to farms that stretch for miles across the roads.  

                  You'd probably be one of the Popsicle's they pulled out of their vehicle in the next few weeks. Because you said screw the government I'm gonna drive when i want where i want.

                  Yea that makes good sense.

                  I can see your family members now burrin you saying poppa smurf don't listen to nobody the revenuers said for us not to drive .... now we can git all his shine.

                  Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                    Then they sent the bloody King packin' too.

                      Poppa smurf don't get your dander up Maryland is on the mason Dixon line, brothers fought brothers and clans battled to preserve our way of life my people traveled between Tennessee and Maryland long before the war during the war and after the war. I live in Baltimore because my father moved here to build Liberty ships. Otherwise I'd be in West by God Virginia. 

                      All states have laws even yours and if they have a stage three snow emergency i want you to drive the roads so well all be safe from you.

                      Maryland got more snow this year than Buffalo New York. An unprecedented amount of snow calling for drastic measures a least the mayor and governor didn't have have to explain to some family's why their loved ones had to die because they allowed people whom have never driven in snow this deep to drive on roads that were impassable.

                      Nor will they have to face any lawsuits for deaths because the officials of this state didn't act accordingly. You can bet your bottom dollar if someone had died as a result of driving in this storm and they didn't enact the stage 3 snow emergency they'd be blaming the mayor and governor and want to sue the city or state.

                        In Baltimore right now, it is actually ILLEGAL to travel on the roadway unless you are an emergency vehicle. This got me to thinking what kind of effect this blizzard is going to have on lottery sales. I suspect in Delaware and Maryland the number of Pick-3 and Pick-4 winners will be significantly lower than normal.

                        This would be a good time to play your chosen numbers in advance because bad weather doesn't stop LOTTERY KARMA!!! Your numbers could come in 24/7!!!!Embarassed

                          I don't know what Poppa smurf means but my dander ain't up at all. Should being called Poppa smurf get my dander up? Never heard of him so I don't know if it's meant as a compliment or an insult.

                          Apparently growing up in and deciding to remain in a big city literally infested with liberals, progressives, socialists and other freedom-restricting, subversive fringe groups has programmed you with a warped mindset on the intent of the Founding Fathers and our Constitution. It's not your fault; that's what they indoctrinate you with in their schools.

                          You have been taught that government is something to be obeyed at all times no matter what. That's wrong. You've been taught that elected representatives are your rulers. That's wrong. You've been taught that government knows best and is the absolute authority on everything. That's wrong. You've been taught to respect politicians for no particular reason. That's wrong.

                          You are told what you can do and you obey. You are told when you can do it and you obey. You fit the sheep mold perfectly because they molded you in it from childhood.

                          In short, you are just one of the flock who they count on to go along with the program.

                          You don't ask questions, you don't make waves, you just go along with the program every time like a good sheep. And they pat you on the head, tell you you're a good citizen and you're happy. You're so happy that you actually promote the party line to show your support.

                          I just happen to be the complete opposite of you.

                          I believe in freedom and liberty.

                          I don't need any government schmuck micro-managing my life.

                          I don't bow down or grovel for royalty or anyone who thinks they're royalty after being elected to office.

                          I pay no attention to unjust laws or laws that defy common sense or unnecessarily restrict my freedom. I have zero respect for the schmucks who enact those laws. I will not submit to them. I will not obey them. I will not behave. I will not get in line. I will not join the flock. I will not go along with the program. I will resist.

                          Frankly, I'm blown away by your matter-of-fact approach to what the government allows us to do. You claim they might get sued if someone dies because they allowed them to drive in the snow. Good God, Ho Chi Minh couldn't have indoctrinated you any better!

                          Well if a life of subservience to Mr Charlie is what you're comfortable with then that's your right to live it. But there are a lot of us out here that are out to change things big-time. You may have noticed a shift in public opinion demonstrated in the last few elections. There are going to be more changes in November and more in 2012.

                          I just hope you can make the adjustment to freedom once we get it back.

                          You may have to start thinking for yourself and running your own life.

                           

                          In response to the question of this thread, the Mid-Atlantic Blizzard wouldn't affect me buying lottery tickets if I lived up there because I'm a free man and I go where I want when I want and I do what I want. And that includes buying lottery tickets even when it's snowing out. Even if some politician tells me I can't. Especially if some politician tells me I can't.

                            I don't know what Poppa smurf means but my dander ain't up at all. Should being called Poppa smurf get my dander up? Never heard of him so I don't know if it's meant as a compliment or an insult.

                            Apparently growing up in and deciding to remain in a big city literally infested with liberals, progressives, socialists and other freedom-restricting, subversive fringe groups has programmed you with a warped mindset on the intent of the Founding Fathers and our Constitution. It's not your fault; that's what they indoctrinate you with in their schools.

                            You have been taught that government is something to be obeyed at all times no matter what. That's wrong. You've been taught that elected representatives are your rulers. That's wrong. You've been taught that government knows best and is the absolute authority on everything. That's wrong. You've been taught to respect politicians for no particular reason. That's wrong.

                            You are told what you can do and you obey. You are told when you can do it and you obey. You fit the sheep mold perfectly because they molded you in it from childhood.

                            You don't know me nor do you know anything about me. I was a nonconformist for the longest time. I am a Vietnam era veteran i have been slapped silly by a group of citizens whom for the most part labeled me a baby killer. Struggled on my own for nearly twenty years before asking anyone for help.

                            Disrespected authority, questioned authority, blamed authority, fought authority and confronted authority guess who won those battles. It wasn't me nor was it anyone like me. I never fit their standards.

                            Whether or not the Governor should or not declared phase three emergency. I believe it was his right after he received word that hundreds of people 700 were stranded on highways and in rural areas and he didn't want to have to rescue thousands of people whom should have stayed home. Should have never been on the road in the first place when stage two emergency said snow tires or chains, not all season radials.

                            Keep your beliefs let those who chose to die for the sake of breaking the law become stranded or cause any calamity they want during the worst snow storm in the history of Maryland's weather.
