Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a name frequently floated as a potential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, has extended her stay-at-home order in response to the coronavirus pandemic to include a ban on individuals traveling between two residences.
Starting Saturday, Michigan residents will no longer be permitted to visit friends or relatives or their second homes or vacation rentals inside the state, with few exceptions such as caring for a relative, an elderly friend or pet, visiting a nursing home, attending a funeral with no more than 10 people, or complying with a court order related to child custody, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Whitmer is earning the reputation through the pandemic, as one of the worst governors for restrictions on civil liberties, without sense behind some of the actions.
Whitmer gives new meaning to control and Orwellian regulations.
She prohibited big-box retailers from in-person sale of seeds because according to her, food is non-essential.
Governor Whitmer in one week banned packaged seeds, tiling, carpet, flooring, baby car seats, and US FLAGS.
Another thing people are finding arbitrary is what the state has chosen to ban them from buying.
You’re apparently not allowed to buy infant car seats.
So anything that you might try to do at home to make good use of your time, like fixing anything or planting anything, you’re out of luck. Stay at home, sit in your corner and comply.
But there are few things thing that isn’t forbidden in the mad Whitmer bans.
Can’t buy seeds. But, liquor, pot and lottery tickets
She is allowing people to buy lotto tickets but not paint at the store to pass time!
Because Lottery ticket purchases pay the state.
Americans have become subjects, and are no longer citizens.
