Politicians are Stupid!

Minneapolis
8th and 9th December 2012

12 Inches of snow: not a snow plow in sight.

After Midnight Sunday, 9th December 2012

Plows worked overnight, but failed to put down any salt to remove the ice.

Temperatures dropped to -1F; roads heavily covered with snow and ice.

Monday, 10th December 2012

Temperatures hover near zero, morning rush hour is a nightmare, no plows and no salt in sight.

Trucks overturned, dozens of rush-hour crashes; no plows and no salt in sight.

Monday Evening, 10th December 2012.

No plows in sight, no salt.

Tuesday, 11th December 2012

Traffic is at a stand still, no plows in sight.

Wednesday, 12th December 2012

Temperatures reach 40F, the snow on the roads melts.

Wednesday Evening, 12th December 2012

Main roads are devoid of ice and snow; out come the snow plows scraping bone-dry pavement and applying a heavy dose of salt.

Five snow plows travel along 394 towards downtown Minneapolis, all in single file.

Thursday, 13th December 2012

Main roads and most of the secondary roads are bone dry; snow plows are out scraping bone-dry pavement and applying a thick layer of salt.

You and I can see the problem here; but our stupid politicians cannot.

Yes, my friend, this is your government at work.
