As of 4 PM Friday afternoon, MA Governor Deval Patrick signed an executive order effectively banning vehicles from ALL roadways until further notice.

Exceptions would be for health or safety emergencies, or state workers responding to blizzard related work tasks.

Penalties for any driver caught in violation of this ban. Up to one year in jail and $500 fine.

 

Hopefully most players anticipated this unprecedented decision, and got all their tickets yesterday.

          I actually risked being pulled over by heading out to Westford MA late Saturday morning (11:30 AM), to pick up my significant other.

          I went by a state trooper, and two local cops without so much as a glance in my direction.

          Got a feeling this ban was more of a scare tactic to keep 95% of most people off the roads.

          From the news reports from channel 7, I heard that several vehicles were pulled over during the height of the storm, but were never cited.

            "Your reading comprehension needs work."

            Your freedom comprehension needs work, son.

             

            "Nobody ever said "you're not allowed to leave the house"."

            It wouldn't matter if they did. I do what the hell I want, when I want.

             

            "It may have been suggested that everyone stay home, but not mandated."

            Better check yerself, son. He banned driving on all roads in the dadgum state. That's a mandate. Wake up.

            And mandates from some political schmuck might scare the hell out of you son, but they don't mean nothin' to me. I'm my own man. I do as I dam well please.   

             

            "... you could still walk to the store..."

            Heh,heh,heh... you really are a city boy, aint'cha son? I'd have to walk up out of this holler, down the mountain and ten miles to the nearest store, son.

            Uh-uh, ain't happenin', I'll be drivin' when I go. Mandate or no mandate, don't make me no nevermind no how neither way.



            I live back in the woods, you see
            A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
            I got a shotgun a rifle and a 4-wheel drive
            And a country boy can survive
            Country folks can survive

            I can plow a field all day long
            I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
            We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
            Ain’t too many things these ol' boys can’t do
            We grow good ol' tomatoes and homemade wine
            And a country boy can survive
            Country folks can survive

            Because you can’t starve us out
            And you cant make us run
            Cuz we're them old boys raised on shotguns
            And we say grace and we say Ma’am
            And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a dam 

            We came from the West Virginia coalmines
            And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
            And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot line
            And a country boy can survive
            Country folks can survive

            I had a good friend in New York City
            He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
            My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
            And his taught him to be a businessman
            He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
            And I’d send him some homemade wine

            But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
            For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
            Id love to spit some Beech-Nut in that dude's eye 
            And shoot him with my ol' 45
            Cause a country boy can survive
            Country folks can survive

            Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
            Cuz we're them old boys raised on shotguns
            And we say grace and we say Ma’am
            And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a dam 

            We’re from North California and south Alabam
            And little towns all around this land
            And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
            And a country boy can survive
            Country folks can survive

            "Your freedom comprehension needs work, son."

            Your freedom ends where it affects other people's freedom and, more importantly, safety.  Specifically, the safety of the policemen, ambulance crews, and possibly firemen who have to take care of you and clean up the mess after you spin out and slam into a telephone pole or get T-boned by some other idiot with more chutzpah than brains.

            "Better check yerself, son. He banned driving on all roads in the dadgum state. That's a mandate. Wake up."

            You're the one who needs to check yourself.  You said he ordered everyone in the house to stay indoors.  He did not.  I don't know how they do things in redneck country, but around these parts it is a common occurence to step outside without immediately climbing into a waiting vehicle.  Try it sometime.

            "And mandates from some political schmuck might scare the hell out of you son, but they don't mean nothin' to me. I'm my own man. I do as I dam well please."

            One, I don't live in Massachusetts so it didn't affect me one way or another.  Two, if you want to get tossed in jail for a year because you value booze and lottery tickets over the safety of yourself and the emergency personnel assigned to be on duty during a darn BLIZZARD, you go right the hell ahead.  Please, get yourself locked up.  It might actually be a little more peaceful here without you around to bully everyone who doesn't shower you with admiration.

            Oh, and by the way, I'm not your son, pops.

              "Your freedom ends where it affects other people's freedom and, more importantly, safety.  Specifically, the safety of the policemen"

              No it don't, son.

              It might affect a butt-sniffer of anyone in authority like you but I'm a free man 24/7/365 and ain't no governor or popo or any liberal schmuck ever gonna change that. 

              Ever.

               

              " around these parts it is a common occurence to step outside without immediately climbing into a waiting vehicle.  Try it sometime."

               Around these parts?  LOL, suburban NY?  Around these parts? Seriously? LOL.

              I "step outside" to kill things to eat, sonny boy, something your pansyass wouldn't know how to do if your life depended on it. And I got a freezer fulla venison, squirrels, rabbits and backstrap to last me the winter.  So why would I wanna "step outside" in a blizzard?

              What're you gonna step outside in a blizzard for, son, to build a snowman or make snow angels for mommy? Which is it, boy?

               

              "you value booze and lottery tickets over the safety of yourself and the emergency personnel assigned to be on duty during a darn BLIZZARD"

              Ain't none of your dam business what the hell I value over what, princess. I don't know how it is up there in New York where men act like women but you go stickin' your big nose in other people's business down here and you'll get yer ass sent home on a shutter.

               

              "It might actually be a little more peaceful here without you around to bully everyone who doesn't shower you with admiration."

              Awww, did I hurt him's feelings? Did him get bullied by the big ol' hillbilly man? Poor baby! Waaaaaaaaaah! Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

              Could somebody shower mediumbratwurstboy with admiration please? He's apparently starved for attention.

               

              So just stay there in mommy's basement in your lily-white suburbs and play your video games, junior. And if Governor Cuomo tells you to start wearing a helmet to make your snow angels, just follow orders. And make sure you don't drink any large cokes either or put any salt on your fries. And I'd tell you to turn in your guns but I know you'd be too terrified to own any. But maybe you could rat out your neighbor if he has any.

              Just remember, the government is your boss, not mine, junior.

              You do what you're told.

              I'm a free man and I do what I want

                Wondering if Governor Patrick will have future driving bans for other conditions which he deems unsafe.  Roll Eyes

                 

                Excessive pollen count during the spring months.

                Massive number of leaves falling during the fall months

                Unacceptable humidity levels during the summer months.

                      Governor Patrick is renowned for his fickle fashion fetishes, only a matter of time before the fashion police will be hauling us all off to jail.

                      Wearing socks with sandals?? Automatic five year prison sentence, $25,0000 fine, and a lifetime ban on wearing sandals would be a fair penalty.  Wink

                          lol and since pens and pencils are too pointy, they will too be banned and crayons will be the accepted writing material.

                            As a precaution, I've already equipped my car with Crayola crayons, in the event I should be pulled over while traveling through the great
