Why doesn't Andrew Cuomo shut down all the roads everywhere? He is the king, after all.

The Duke of Albany hath ordered the expressways open. "Open," he bids them.

The man who called GWB the “first great leader of the 21st century”, and who still supports the Iraq war, senses the yoke of tyranny descending on his delicate shoulders because Andrew Cuomo shut down part of the Thruway during a blizzard.
Where I grew up, in a state where you can carry as many guns as you want (which as we all know is the true test of freedom), the major highways had gates that could be closed during blizzards. We didn’t whine about our precious freedoms when the governor closed them, we just understood that the roads needed to be plowed, and it’s hard to plow a highway strewn with abandoned or wrecked cars. Apparently that little bit of common sense is a bridge too far for JPod.
