Hello Lockdown my old friend

DeWine doesn't have the balls to implement another lockdown.

Gov. Whitmer up in That State Up North has bigger balls than DeWine, and she's a woman.

DeWine is more afraid of a few dozen nuts with guns banging on the Statehouse doors because they can't get haircuts than he is of thousands of people demonstrating about BLM or anything else.

DeWine had a hell of a lot of respect at the start from a much broader base of support, and pissed it down his leg when the Big Orange Bully, President Trump, started making empty threats which stirred up the Republican base.

DeWine let a pile of neo-Nazi nuts run the great Dr. Amy Acton off for being Jewish and open about it.

Everyone in Ohio who isn't a hard core Republican (and therefore supporting Trump and the belief that coronavirus is a Democrat hoax, etcetera) should vote every Republican out starting this year and for the next four years.  That includes the complete and utter f*ckwits like Nino "I can't cover up the face God gave me" Vitale and Gym Jordan and the county sheriff's refusing to implement and follow state law on masks.

By the way, while he's talking, maybe the governor can provide guidelines on how schools are supposed to hold the state mandated fire and tornado drills in a socially distanced manner?

The spike is absolutely no surprise to me. I live in one of the red counties on the map in TFA. Although I don't go out much, when I do, I still see a surprising number of people not wearing masks. Our local grocery store is one of the better locations where non-mask folks are the exception. Wally World is a No-fly zone. Place is packed and only a handful of non employees wearing masks.

2020-07-15 3:28:47 PM  
I doubt it's another locked down. My guesses?

Statewide Mask Mandate

And/or

Telling Trump and Co to go fark themselves on school reopening as they push to take the entire state to online schooling for the foreseeable future.

If there is a new locked down I expect it will be phased, bars and indoor restaurants first then other businesses based on risk, but I think that'll be unlikely to occur before a statewide mask mandate had a chance to go into effect.

Either way, I'm expecting it will be something Republicans won't like because otherwise he would've been perfectly happy to ignore facts during the normal 2pm briefing, so this has to be something he's trying to brace for by shoring up internal support for a barrage of stupid.

Meh, up to this point we've done pretty well, 50% lower deaths per capita than the national average, and even with the recent rise in cases we're nowhere near overwhelming the ICU beds available. I think DeWine is doing a pretty good job overall of balancing things like the economy vs mortality. As long as we're not going to have a supportive socialist state there is a cost in lives to any decision that effects the economy, people losing their medical insurance, housing, and stable food stream all will kill a certain percentage of people, not to mention stress and anxiety. The only thing I can really fault him for is not having the guts to make a statewide mask mandate for all places of public accommodation, that one has minimal cost other than political capital and is guaranteed to save lives.

So the only thing you can fault him for is not implementing the single most effective, least cost measure to save the lives of the citizens of the state he governs because he doesn't want to deal with complaints from morons and potentially risk his own job?

Yeah. Other than that, I suppose he's doing a heck of a job figuring out how many people die vs how much money it costs the state.

Let's not forget about AG Yost. He flies under the radar a lot because of the outsized personalities of the more vocal dipshiats, but he's a Christian dominionist "former" Tea Party guy.


Since we're naming names, we should mention Lt. Gov Husted. Behind the scenes, he had been the one fighting with Dr. Acton about doing a full-speed reopening of the state, eventually leading to her resignation.

DeWine doesn't have the balls to implement another lockdown.

Gov. Whitmer up in That State Up North has bigger balls than DeWine, and she's a woman.

DeWine is more afraid of a few dozen nuts with guns banging on the Statehouse doors because they can't get haircuts than he is of thousands of people demonstrating about BLM or anything else.

DeWine had a hell of a lot of respect at the start from a much broader base of support, and pissed it down his leg when the Big Orange Bully, President Trump, started making empty threats which stirred up the Republican base.

DeWine let a pile of neo-Nazi nuts run the great Dr. Amy Acton off for being Jewish and open about it.

If DeWine doesn't shut it all down, as a Michigander, I hope Whitmer considers border crossing rules like Cuomo did. Two weeks quarantine for visitors coming from states who aren't taking this shiat seriously.

I understand the sentiment.  However as a transplant, about the only thing keeping me sane is the thought of heading to our family compound Up North (it isn't really a compound as such.  Just three cabins on adjacent parcels.).  If she puts up some kind of blockade/quarantine so that I can't get up there,  I might lose hope.

Have you been up north yet? It's not exactly friendly up there right now. Anyplace north of maybe Saginaw does not have the capacity to deal with an outbreak of covid and the ...


Michigan's Covid numbers went up to over 800 in a day yesterday, the last time they were that high was in early April. I think she restricts travel soon.

I don't see how that would work for people on the border.  Many people live in one state and work in the other.

If they stirred up the base, they weren't empty..

Trump's threats are empty threats like how he's gonna pull public school funding and all that.  Shiat he can't legally do, but the Trumpers believe should happen because reasons.

The threat of Trumpers doing things, however, appears to motivate a lot of people.  The answer is that they're bullies and chickenshiats who have to wave their guns because they're either scared shiatless of something and don't have the sense to walk away or avoid conflict, or the only thing they know to do is to make a scene and throw a tantrum to get their way.

I'm in Arkansas and I normally do grocery pickups but last week I had to go into the store and get a few things. I was the only person wearing a mask properly out of the ~75 people in the store. The employees were wearing masks because they had to and none of them had their noses covered and most just had the masks on their chin.

Fast food places require employees to wear masks but once again they are just hanging down on their chins. I live in a rural area outside a city that requires masks and as soon as people get out of the city limits the masks come off and stay off.

I have zero faith that the public will work together to fight this virus. I am 100% sure we won't have school or football this fall and that is going to cause major problems with parents, especially those with kids who are seniors this year. They are going to be violent about a democratic hoax cancelling school and their special snowflakes senior year of football. There will be zero accountability that if they had worn masks we would be able to have football and school. They will admit nothing and deflect the blame off onto the people who did the right thing and stayed home or wore masks and distanced when they had to go out.

Fark em, I hope they all die and don't take too many of the reasonable and rational people who did like we should have with them.
