Waterbury did just exactly that. When a bucket loader comes, all those with worthy genes jump out of the way. And by the way- I got a request to drive a nurses aide from westville to hamden to care for a bed-ridden patient who couldn't feed herself. Would you have been an obedient little lemming again?

There are differing circumstances when people would have a legitimate reason to be there. Restricting traffic to clear the roads does not sound like a bad idea to this little lemming.

The National Weather Service DOESN'T name winter storms - only the cünts on 'the weather channel' are doing it.

Why don't you do a posting story on Detective/Officer Trahan Wilton Police Department who is a bigot & uses the N-word on a daily basis.

Good luck with that- you will see city governments put all their efforts into road blocks and fining people, instead of cleanup. This also gives them cover for inadequate cleanup. Once people get used to that, towns will demand more and more cleanup time, demand people stay off the roads, while businesses still expect employees to report, and businesses try to stay in operation. And for example, you won't be able to go across town to check on your mother-in-law or a rental property. You guys are way too compliant with authorities who care way too little about doing the right thing.

Yes, as I understand it right now, 2/3rds of Bridgeport is still not plowed. What a mess!
