State of Mass. Bans Public From Road Use After 4PM - Governor, 2/8/2013

By order of Massachusetts Governor Patrick: State of Emergency declared. Bans cars from road as of 4 p.m.

    Massachusetts hunkers down ahead of blizzard. [Postal service left to wonder.] 2 feet of snow. Wind whip up 70 miles per hour... Giant waves.

    Patrick announced the vehicle ban, which will go into effect at 4 p.m., at a news conference at the state’s emergency bunker in Framingham. The state will lift all tolls on the Massachusetts Turnpike as of 2 p.m. He said the state of emergency would allow the state to “implement emergency measures to ensure the safety of our residents and take appropriate steps to mobilize state assets.”

    A few light flakes began dancing aimlessly down from the sky in Boston at mid-morning, in a picturesque prelude to what forecasters say would be a storm that could endanger people and property.

    Light snow began falling in Boston’s South End at 9:28. Inside the iconic Charlie’s Sandwich Shoppe, a cry went out, “Snow!” ...

    4,000 National Guard called.

Post office still wondering. Due to "State of Insanity" few could be reached for comment. Sorry for lack of official proclamation posting on tavern doors. Mark Twain reporting... Live.

The Great Oz Has Spoken

...and NO snowball throwing either!!

Utter nonsense. Ron Paul is far, far ahead, since 2007.

As registered by millions & millions of Google ® queries, "Ron Paul" as charted by Google Trends ® is by far & away more popular than lowly Ms Clinton. Reporting the popularity responses from a mere 1772 respondents was a below the beltway punch... Much ado about nothing.

The humbug Ms Clinton edged out yet lesser candidates with substantially the same press core (court) as Ms Clinton... Even a full court (core) free-press did not buy allegiance. Nor did the full court press deny Ron Paul top billing in what inquiring minds take time to research.

        Ron Paul

Alert Canada! Ban horseless carriage travel! By order of Mass.

Us wishing to ride in a one-horse open sleigh wish to ride safely.

Massachusetts has already, with a mere dusting of snow, banned all horseless carriage travel. Has your government no respect for your pursuit of happiness? Your safety?

Public Address: For those of you w/o a one-horse open sleigh, this Bull-eTin will be repeated, over & over again. Please remain hypnotized.
