“But Mitch…”

“…why do you oppose cities running munipical utilities for vital services like water, electricity and trash collection?”

Because it gives tinhorn autocrats an excessive amount of coercive power:

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the city is preparing to launch enforcement efforts against nonessential businesses that have remained opened, starting with a warning.

Those that remain open face misdemeanor penalties, citations, fines and the possibility of the city Department of Water and Power shutting off utility service, Garcetti said.

More power. That was really the intention all along.

  1. The degenerates don’t believe they’ve strangled their economies quite enough, but new unemployment figures come out tonight and we are pretty sure CA will show up on life support. The market won’t like it.

    No worries for CA state government though. I’m sure all those dimwits that voted for muh diversity will be more than happy to meet whatever new taxation is necessary to keep city hall polished and gleaming like a jewel.

    The BMW plant here will close for 2 weeks starting tomorrow. Oh sure, Michelin closed this week but, they’re French. The Great State of South Carolina isn’t making them do it. Boeing, Volvo and GE aren’t closing and neither are any of the plants I serve.

  2. Whenever government gets busy, I get worried. And I start wondering – where do they get the authority to do that?

    Suppose Governor Walz determined that, in order to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus, it was necessary to remove people of Chinese ancestry from their homes and ship them to Camp Ripley for detention. Can he do it? Under what authority? Do they have rights? What rights?

    Okay, say he didn’t remove them from their homes, he put them under house arrest. Is that different? Can he do that? Under what authority?

    Everybody has been going along because it all sounds so reasonable and proper. But the government banned the free exercise of religion – churches are closed. Can they?

  3. It’s probably unconstitutional Joe, but the degenerates are all in on closing up the churches, constitution be damned.

    “Close the Churches”

    State and local shutdown orders shouldn’t exempt religious gatherings, and those communities should comply.

  4. Has anybody in the Twin Cities seen or heard anything from the big-buck Resiliency Officers that Mayors Frey and Carter put on the city payrolls? They must be pretty busy.

  5. JD;

    I totally agree. This bill does have Democrat poison pills in it. When Schumer sends out a letter to his fellow crooks, bragging about all of the stuff he got included, we know something is rotten. The media and some states, keep trying to goad Trump into declaring martial law, so they don’t have to pay for it. So far, he has ignored those calls. I think that Trump realizes that this would be a dangerous precedent to be set. This is funny, because the left is convinced that he is a Nazi, yet they are inviting him to control their states like that. On the other hand, Trump could use this as an opportunity. Since the left already calls him a dictator, he could replace all Democrat led state governments with Republicans, just to piss the left off, reasoning that they asked him to do so. 🤣


    Nah! They are sheltering at home.

  6. NW, I commented on that earlier. The Resiliency Officers are concerned with surviving Glerbal Werming. It would be possible to measure their effectiveness against an actual crisis, like bat flu, so it’s out of the question Q.E.D.

  7. Market is up again. +1200 It’s made up 17% of the loss so far. According to Emery, we only have another 68.7% to go and we can T@k3 SuM ProfITz!!

  8. I take that back. We’re within 17% of the market high. Guess that means we only have 38.5% to go before we B0ok Sum GaINz!!

  9. Governors have a lot of power during a public health crisis.
    But a crisis is, by definition, short lived. And governors are accountable to the people in a way that presidents and congressmen are not.

  10. <iAnd governors are accountable to the people in a way that presidents and congressmen are not.

    Because their security details aren’t as large as those on the federal level? (I kid, I kid.)
