Most violent crimes, including murder, rape and incest, most suicides, most accidental deaths, and most deaths in general all occur in the victimized and deceased person’s home. Many more people die in the home than will ever, ever die from Covid-19. Won’t someone please think of the children?
The ongoing shelter-at-home orders are not only unconstitutional, but they put the people who follow them at a greater risk of death. It’s time to tell our governor to twist her “data” and “science” and stuff them right up her arse.
The point is we are not her children, so like always we get to decide what risks we’re willing to take in life, and if that scares or threatens some people, well then, they can just put on a mask, stand six feet away from us, or just stay home.
