What is ironic about evolution and my response? You are going to have to elaborate on that.

It doesn't get irony, so it doesn't actually know

Personally, I wish the trolls would learn to feed themselves. They are nothing but a drain on society

It was a joke.

You said you would benefit from the mayor telling you to not walk outside in the snow while advocating for the thesis of natural selection.

Ironic.

Those who can't figure out how to survive in NYC during a snow storm without the mayor's advice would be Darwin Award applicants.

You can still go to the park if you want to, there just won't be any staff there to help you if your dumb ass gets lost or hurt.

I can figure out how to survive in NYC without the mayors advice, that doesn't mean that his advice wouldn't benefit me. I get along just fine with how I deal with the weather with or without winter advisories, but I certainly welcome someone warning me in case I overlooked something.

They sometimes close parks because of the trees or because some parks are used as a place to put the extra snow being cleared away. They were expecting high winds and heavy snowfall and many of those trees and their branches aren't exactly in the best condition and can make for dangerous conditions. It has nothing to do with any grand conspiracy.

Closing the roads lets the cleanup crew do their job. Honestly, where do you have to be driving to in blizzard conditions? Some people just like to go for a drive then get stuck need to be rescued, put emergency crews lives in unnecessary danger and take resources away from something else.

People wouldn't be hassled or arrested for building a snowman or playing... If people just used common sense they wouldn't have to issue these warnings to begin with.

When did New Yorkers start to need "staff" to help them not get lost in Central Park?

This is NY we're talking about. Not a 4th grade field trip.

Eerrr you do know that NYC is filled with people perhaps in their thousands who have never seen snow apart from T.V much less been in a snow storm,who think getting to work or school in a blizzard of the century maybe Ok??

As stated earlier, the expected amounts and winds were much worse than they turned out in actuality. Here in Boston it was extremely dangerous to go out last night and still now... have you never heard of white out conditions or snow blindness? It means that with everything covered, poor visibility and snow blowing into your face at 40 mph... anyone can lose their bearings and get lost, anyone can miss a curb or wander out onto ponds and break a leg or fall through ice or get lost.

Now that it didn't hit NYC as bad as they thought, the city is up and running though rangers and the like probably still have the day off, but 11 inches isn't dangerous so there's no need to stay in and not go play in it.

Have you ever been in a white-out, or severe snowstorm?

www.slate.com...




In 1888, a blizzard hit New York City with such ferocity that it propelled the city into the 20th century. Telegraph and telephone wires whipped dangerously in the wind, prompting the New York Times to call for an underground power line system. Thirty-foot snow drifts stranded passengers between elevated railroad stations, spurring plans for a subway system. And heavy petticoats made it so difficult for women to traverse the snow that it’s no wonder a sleeker silhouette would soon come into fashion. Via NYC Subway, here’s the New York Sun account of how the city’s women braved the storm on March 13, 1888:

De Blasio isn't a communist because of his dictatorial closures of roads, schools, and parks in advance of a fore-casted storm, he is a Communist because of what he believes--that the government is all powerful and has no limits ("The dictatorship of the proletariat is nothing less than Power backed by force, and limited by nothing--by no law and by no rule" Lenin):
www.aim.org...

Seeing how the police are against De Blasio then where is power backed by force? So a mayor closing things that could have led to people being stranded in places had the blizzard happened like they thought it was going happen to makes him a communist?

De Blasio has certainly pissed off the police, but he still has power as Mayor to do many things, including, apparently, telling the police what actions to take for citizens on the roads. We're not a police state, yet, but we're headed in that direction, and that is the end point of Socialism and Communism.

The end point of fascism is corporate control of everyone--corporatism.

The end point of Communism and Socialism is a Police State.

We closed the subways for this? Gawker

Apparently the subways kept running---but no one was allowed to ride them!

This action was part of Cuomo's attempted "assistance" in de Blasio's boondoggle.

Those that are driving on the streets are immediately pulled over by the NYPD. You wanna mess with the NYPD? Good luck with that.

Listening to Howard Stern this morning he is also criticizing the NYC mayor for continuing to keep the streets closed. They got about 5 inches but the roads are clear.

I live on Long Island and I got about 2 feet of snow...

None of that is true. Police states can exist in fascist states (Nazi Germany comes to mind) and corporate control of everyone exists in Communist states. Though Socialism isn't Communism and doesn't have the same goals. Keep in mind, I am not a Socialist, but you are spreading disinformation by trying to put Socialism in the same camp as Communism.
