I’m getting a kick out of watching CBS coverage with a correspondent named Lou Young. He was reporting live from Ridgefield, Connecticut as if he was giving an eye witness account to the apocalypse.
He was breathlessly reporting that the grand high mystic ruler of Connecticut, governor Malloy, had issued a driving ban. Young pointed down an avenue and said that all the businesses were closed, except for a hardware store.
Young went into the business, probably half expecting to see people running through the aisles in a panic, killing and eating the fellow customers.
The first guy he approached was cashing out at the register. Young asked if he was buying “storm related items.” The guy casually said, “no, I’m doing a little light plumbing back at the house.” Young seemed disappointed. Then he spotted a guy in the back perusing the paint section. He was dejected. Life seemed to be going on despite the government decree.
When he stepped outside he encountered a guy getting out of his truck with his dog. Young asked him if he knew that there was a driving ban in place. The guy said he was unaware of that.
Young asked how the roads were, hoping for a tale of treachery. The guy said, “the roads are great.”
Battered, but not down, Young asked the guy to assess the severity of the storm. The guy said, “moderate.” He continued, much to Lou Young’s chagrin, “this is Connecticut, it snows.” He looked at Lou Young like he was a loon.
CBS got their red meat earlier when they were interviewing a real dopebag in Rivervale, New Jersey. They stopped this big-brain in his truck who said he couldn’t stay home because he was getting “cabin fever.” One day in the house gets this guy itchy. That’s always a sign you’re in the presence of an intellectual. A book is something that levels a wobbly toilet. So CBS had their man in their sites. They reminded the guy that this was the same area that was hit by Hurricane Sandy. Then they said that another big storm on its heels seems strange. They asked the guy, obviously a world famous climatologist, if he thought it was a coincidence. The big dumb bastard complied – “Herrr dee durrrrrr da derrrrr, not a coincidence.”
Yes. It’s GLOBAL WARMING, and Rivervale, New Jersey is the epicenter.
All of this coverage, and the Governor bans on driving, is designed to make the citizen feel helpless and the government omnipotent.
We got about 18″ here. My pal Bill borrowed his Dad’s truck, hooked up a plow and did the entire neighborhood, driveways and all. Maybe he should go to Suffolk County and plow out the people who are waiting for Andrew Cuomo to get the plows going, because there are people abandoning their cars. Meanwhile, Governor Douchenozzle was just on the Tee Vee telling everyone to stay off the roads and they have it under control. Uh Huh.
Just wait until these leftist run states in the northeast switch all the emergency vehicles over to “green electric smart cars.” Maybe if the citizens are nice they will plow out the bureauweenies. You know what? Maybe the government should stay off the roads and let real men with their real vehicles do the work of men.
