A Line That Needs To Be Drawn

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

No Republican should vote for anything in this Specisl Session until Governor Walz relinquishes his dictatorial and arbitrary control of the state.

Participation is acquiescence. 

Acquiescence is surrender.

Joe Doakes

I couldn’t agree more.

House and Senate GOP caucuses – give us a reason to get passionate about supporting you in 2022.

  1. I am reading that some businesses in MN are prepared to give Walz a double flying eagle & open up.
    Those people who believe that these business owners to the fullest extent of the law should be reminded that they are violating no law, the edicts that close restaurants and other businesses are just that, edicts. They are not laws passed by the people’s representatives.
    Walz has done the equivalent of nailing his cap to a post & demanding that all bow who pass by it.

  2. Max O: The issue for a lot of these businesses, and do they reopen, is the licenses. The enforcement power for someone with a liquor license or food service is not the police. It’s the health department and/or Alcohol Gambling Enforcement (AGE).

    Does the facility have a boiler? Inspector could show up and red tag it, so that you don’t have heat.

    So, they don’t really have to get you for defying the edict and using law enforcement. They can just pull your licenses, which is probably more legal. I don’t envy anyone trying to navigate their rights and the administrative state regulations. If the state pulls your liquor license, no distributor can sell to you then. No matter how you look at it, it’s a sandwich made of fecal matter, and Timmy is going to make sure you finish it.

  3. smh is right — the 5th estate(bureaucrats) has power in excess of the written law and they are famous for exercising it with marked brutality.

    Not sure what difference that makes, SMH: “MDH has received more than 800 complaints of Executive Order violations at restaurants and bars regulated by MDH and has referred more than 400 complaints to delegated agencies since July 13. Fifty bars and restaurants met the MDH definition for a COVID-19 outbreak by the end of August.”

  5. Max: I read through that link, and that appears to be about those places working to stay in compliance. The 800 complaints may be Karens that saw someone drinking a beer without a mask.

    What I was referring more to was in a time like right now – takeout/delivery only. If some bar owner said screw it, and opened up, they’d probably get their liquor license pulled. The state will work with those who seek compliance. But will destroy those that misbehave.

    I continue to be amazed at the way people will willingly debase themselves…..

    You said it, brother!

  8. What would be the justification for pulling a business’s liquor license?
    And how would that differ from not being allowed to do profitable business under King Walz’s arbitrary rules?

  9. The justification? They didn’t do as told.

    I think we’re talking the same issue here Max O.

  10. If the bar/restaurant doesn’t open, it will fail. If the bar/restaurant loses its liquor license, it will fail. Might as well go out with a flying finger.

  11. Hey, I live on the Wisconsin side of the river, Minnesota’s loss is our gain.
    Lots of MN plates on cars parked at our open restaurants & bars.
