Yesterday the governor of California, Gavin “Gruesome” Newsom ordered millions of people to go home and stay there. If President Donald J. Trump had given such an order there would be protests and lawsuits. But since Gov. Gruesome is a Democrat there has been nary a peep. I can’t tell you how many people are defying the Governor with Great Hair because I am afraid to go outside and look.
I don’t have any constitutional issues with the order, at least not to the extent that the order is both temporary and was made in response to a genuine public health emergency. My inner libertarian is screaming “This is how liberty dies!” but this order falls within the legitimate police powers of government. If the Hu Flung Pu Flu was a huge fire nobody would question the pretty-boy governor’s ability to order an evacuation. Instead of ordering us to evacuate he is telling us to stay-cuate.
Meanwhile, Mom is getting cabin fever.
Anyhoo, this is an open thread.
