"PLEASE don't make me tell you to wear masks or shutdown the state. Just do that on your own, ok?"

Here's the problem, governor Dumbass.

When you say that businesses can't operate, what happens is those businesses can then file against their business continuity and liability insurance packages. Well, the ones who have them can, the other ones are farked but if you can't afford insurance you can't afford to run the business anyway.

So. If you close them, they're covered. If they close themselves, they're not.

If workers can't work because of legal declarations from your office, they're eligible for unemployment. If you don't make that declaration, they go to work or they're fired.

So: Nobody's just going to do it. The system is set up so they can't.

Do your farking job or give yourself the Full Budd Dwyer and let someone else be governor.

I'm sure that's TOTALLY just a coincidence.  They didn't even think of that.  No sirree, didn't think of that at all.

Especially given the typical breakdown of ages and SES that work hourly jobs that would be hit by businesses being told to close vs. salaried employees that would have a better chance of working from home / job continuation.

Totally an Unfortunate Coincidence.  Nothing To See Here.

(assholes, is what I am saying.  Hate-filled, worthless, selfish, piece of crap assholes who are going to get a whole hell of a lot more people killed.  Which is saying a lot, since we're already past 132,000 dead Americans who didn't have to die in the first place.)

Not disagreeing with you, but they are being very short-sighted (of course).  When the hospitals get overwhelmed by Covid patients, the mortality rates for strokes, heart attacks, car accidents, slip-and-falls, and diabetic emergencies skyrocket.  And many, many Trumpers are in the prime demographic for those increased deaths.
