Governor Evers should order the police to shut down Saloon on Calhoun and station officers outside all entrances to ensure the owner doesn't try to open it again.

It never ceases to amaze me how easily people tout "damage to country" as an excuse to be selfish and allow harm to come to people... especially given the entire point of a country is the service and protection of its people.

I don't think people really understand just how devastating closing the bar and restaurant industry is.  Let's forget about the tipped workers and the restaurant owners who sunk their life savings into a business for a second, this has a ripple effect on the economy around those businesses.  Bars and restaurants attract people to neighboring businesses.  So you basically shut those down along with the bars and restaurants.  These people aren't going to get any kind of meaningful help when this is over.  And we did it so your 80 year old grandma can maybe live to see 81.

Here's my theory. It's still a work in progress but it goes like this:
The lockdown/quarantine lasts two, maybe three weeks. Then, idiots, morans, real 'Muricans, mommy bloggers and anti-vaxxers (who, not coincidentally, all tend to vote republican) start going out and gathering en masse again to "show" the liberal sheeple. COVID-19 experiences a huge surge, possibly mutating again and we all get Martial Law and exponentially more deaths than we would have had people just STAYED. THE FARK. HOME!

How the hell is it selfish?  Wanting 350 million people to upend their lives and possibly lose everything so your 75 year old uncle can live for another year is pretty farking selfish if you ask me.  Sure you lost your job, your savings, and your house, but uncle Larry with COPD lived for another year.  At least you have your health!  Thoughts and prayers...

I don't live in WI anymore but I guarantee you when Evers is up for re-election the bootstrappy Republican going against him is going to bring up how he is out of touch elitist closing the bars in Wisconsin and the rubes (that are left over) will eat it up

Yeah, I'm sure no one has thought about that. So what's your answer? Don't close the bars and restaurants and allow them to kill thousands of people?

Too f*cking bad we are SOOOOOOOO exceptional that we have f*cked ourselves out of a functional government and safety net. Right smack in the middle of the 21st century we are having this problem. We are reaping the whirlwind.

I work in a small Wisconsin town.  At least one bar here stayed open for a couple hours after the closure.
They parked the cars in back and turned off the lights.
I'm sure the local cops were in on it .

This happened in Cincy as well. (Well, not for St Pats) Business owner was warned one night, then the manager was arrested the 2nd night and they chained the doors. City is looking to revoke the liquor and food licenses on a permanent basis.

Jeebus Saves: Let's forget about the tipped workers


Or let's not, since even if the government gets its shiat together an rolls out some sort of retroactive PTO mandate for the state of emergency, they will almost certainly be left out.  That tip money pays about 3 million people and restaurants and bars cannot afford to cover it.

Whenever you declare emergencies and whatnot some of the provisions allow for detainment for this kind of thing. I'll bet quite a few sov cits get hit with this when things go for shiat and the curfews and draconian travel restrictions are imposed.

I took a walk down main the other day after the governor's order. Lots of signs in the bars reading 'beer and food to go'. Sensible, but it's only enough to keep the lights on. The staff and bartenders are going to hurt bad. They should be allowed to sell coke and divvy up the profit.

Don't forget to vote for me in November!

I'd just like to add to the chorus of FOAD with a hearty DIAF.

My wife has an autoimmune disease, and I'm considered an essential employee of an essential industry, and do a job that can't be done from home.
If people stay home when they don't absolutely need to go somewhere, there's less chance that me or one of my coworkers will become infected and bring the disease home, where vulnerable people live.

My dad works in a hospital in the area and has a patient with Covid-19 confirmed. Now we aren't going to see him for months because there is no way I'm exposing my small children to this shiat if I can avoid it.

There is a doctor at Children's Hospital of WI that was working until he became symptomatic and then tested positive. Who knows how many kids he infected unintentionally, and how many of them will die because they are already sick enough to be hospitalized.

Sorry, but your right to earn a living is NOT a higher priority than stopping a deadly virus that will shortly be overwhelming our hospitals as it has done in Italy.

Maybe business owners who put money above human lives should go out of business.
