I’m sympathetic to LEOs placed in a tough spot by terrible government, but the right answer is always to do the right thing which in this case is upholding your oath to our founding documents and principals. You don’t have to be a martyr or quit in protest. But you also don’t have to zealously enforce everything new whim of a tyrant just because you received orders.

Preach it (though it shouldn't *need* to be said at all...)

I had to go to work this morning to drop off paperwork. After I went to both Kroger and Walmart. About 80% or better were without a mask.

As I drove through town on my way home I only saw a handful of people out about walking with a mask on.

I just returned from a rural-ish Walmart down South.

Maybe 20% had masks on, fwiw, folks of all shades and socioeconomic statuses.

I was out and about most of the day. I would say 75 percent had no mask on. Also I’ve noticed a much higher percentage of women with them on than men. Traffic around here is probably 80% of what it was. I’m also seeing more elderly people not wearing a mask.

That's about what I noticed. Most with masks on were 40 or younger women. I didn't see any one over 60 years old with a mask of man or woman.

Traffic was about 80% of normal and gas is almost $2.00 per gallon on regular.

Went to do some banking yesterday afternoon. As I'm walking up to the bank a older gentleman wearing a mask heading to his car locks and holds eye contact with me for about twenty feet. I just smiled.

When I got back in the rig my wife asked who that was as she thought I was talking to the guy, I said I think I was getting dog eyed for not wearing a mask. Not a word was exchanged with the guy.

Yet there are reports all over that she's already at her summer home in N. Mich. For the holiday weekend. We have to stay home and she does what she wants.

I just saw a iPhone video of a restaurant in South Carolina tonight; it looked full of people enjoying their food and drink, no masks to be seen not even on staff. Looks like any typical Friday night in a busy restaurant anywhere.

Meanwhile we wanted to order takeout (the only way to get food from a restaurant right now) Mexican from our favorite Mexican hole in the wall place, but they weren’t answering their phone. So I drove over to order in person, and had to wear a mask to even get through the door. Of course the door is locked, and the place is dark. They probably said “fuck it” and went back to Mexico Confused

Our Dictator-Governor Tom Wolf has us on this ridiculous 3 part phase system and my county is still currently in “Red”. He just released a new updated version of this nonsense tonight WTF is this “new normal” BS? Don’t tell me that this has not become 100% political! Mad

The new normal is the old normal

Anyone who eats otherwise is deluding themselves.

Already shaking hands with people I have t seen in awhile and I don’t give two shits about the uptight pansies parading around in their technicolor masks which are most likely worthless

The wife and I were out for most of the day today. We are having a family gathering here on Saturday. Looks like there will be over 30 people now. It keeps growing. Anyways, we needed food and stuff and we wanted to drop the puppy off for some grooming.

We went first to a large supermarket (HyVee) in Osage. The place was packed with tourists and Lake dwellers from all over the mid-west for the holiday weekend. I would say 60% of the people were wearing masks which is not surprising as many are from the large urban areas and cities to the north. Prior to this weekend I seldom saw maybe 20% of the people out and about wearing masks.

Shoot, I actually found some hand sanitizer (germ-X) at one of the wal-marts. First time I've seen any in a store. Gas was $1.49. I ain't going anywhere until Tuesday.

We need to flatten the curve! stay home, be safe

oh its flattened?

We need to save lives! Stay home, be safe

Oh, the death toll has dropped significantly and was inflated?

We MUST prevent a second wave!! stay home, stay safe

In other words, we'll find any excuse to keep you at home.

Not to worry. Remember when O told us that a crippled economy was the "new normal", and then Trump proved he was full of shit? It's the same political gambit - hell, it's a recycled political gambit - expect the same outcome.

I went to the bank to do some banking, old enough to understand the term. Wink
And saw something which takes the cake.

Lobby has been closed, supposed to open back up June 1st.

So, waiting in the drive through, there's a couple sitting in the vehicle next to me.
Both wearing masks, both wearing gloves.

The lady grabs the bank canister, removes her stuff.... then grabs the hand sanitizer (which is tied to the top of the steering column) and uses it on the GLOVES! Confused Roll Eyes

Spoke to a friend who is a nurse and she kept ranting about how people need to stay at home, they don't have enough PPE and how her employer furloughed people and cut hours of others.

Even said she won't treat people who go out on purpose and get sick. Yeah, I'm sure it's really your choice. Roll Eyes

Not sure she sees the relationship between people staying at home/being locked down and their furloughing and reduction of hours. I'm not a genius and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night but...

Thuringia is the first Germand state to announce plans for lifting the general rules of social distancing, wearing masks in shops and public transport, etc. State minister president Bodo Ramelow of the Left Party - currently in an uneasy minority government with Social Democrats and Greens that's sorta tolerated by the CDU pending new elections next April - said the current regulations will be replaced by measures at the discretion of counties from 6 June.

This comes as popular support for the national CDU-led government seems to have topped out after a spectacular rise during the crisis. Ironically, protests by fringe groups are increasing while restrictions are rapidly eased, with various political parties trying to seize on the issue. Particularly the right-wing AfD, the strong showing of which in last October's Thuringia state elections led to the current impassé; however, Ramelow's Left Party also has its corona rebels like national deputy parliamentary group leader Andrej Hunko, who recently held a diatribe about Bill Gates and the WHO at a protest in Aachen.

Totalitarian moving the goal posts to stay in power...

Comrade Whitmer Extends Stay-Home Order to June 12th – Michigan Now Focused on Eliminating Non-Existent “Second Wave”…

[Whitmer] said while coronavirus cases and deaths are clearly declining, “we are not out of the woods yet.” “If we’re going to lower the chance of a second wave and continue to protect our neighbors and loved ones from the spread of this virus, we must continue to do our part by staying safer at home.”
