Protest the Governor’s Madness at the Capitol!!

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then.” – Thomas Jefferson – (1743-1826), US Founding Father,

“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.” – Thomas Jefferson

Whitless AlertI am sure that by now every one knows about the latest Executive Order from the Governor. Particularly since she used an emergency broadcast system not only on cell phones but I have been told, television to announce it.

I have included the Executive Order at the bottom of this Newsletter

The bottom line is that YOU as a Michigan citizens have been stripped of some of your basic civil liberties.

And NO mention of returning Michigan to work! Is this her way of punishing Michigan because she didn’t get her 70 days?!!! Or is it because she has NO plan to get Michigan back to work or a plan to plug the hole in Michigan’s budget so big you could drive a truck through because of her draconian directives?? How about both?!

From House Representative Matt Maddock

“She just extended the stay at home order until April 30th. She refused to adopt the updated CISA guidelines, and made it more restrictive to businesses and travel.

“Under the new order, all public and private gatherings among persons outside a single household remain temporarily prohibited. Though Michiganders may leave the house to get groceries or needed supplies, the new order encourages people to limit the number of household members running errands to the maximum extent possible. …The order clarifies, however, that travel for vacations or for any other purpose is prohibited.
A new section of the order imposes restrictions on stores in an effort to reduce crowds. … Large stores must also close areas of the store that are dedicated to carpeting, flooring, furnituree, garden centers, plant nurseries, or paint.”

And only 4 people per 1,000 square feet in grocery stores with limited hours.

And she said Residents should not expect that everything is going back to normal on April 30th and almost certainly won’t be the last measure taken in Michigan.”

 

So its time to exercise “a little rebellion now”

Everyone, every citizen, every business owner needs to get out of their house, out of their chair and get in their car, or truck, or anything that is legal to drive on taxpayer funded roads. Then drive to Lansing to circle the Michigan Capitol Building at 100 N. Capitol Avenue at noon on April 15.

Governor Whitmer Extends, Expands “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order to Save Lives

Governor directs all Michiganders to stay home, stay safe through April 30

LANSING, Mich. — Today, Governor Whitmer signed executive order 2020-42, extending her prior “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order through the end of April. As with the prior order, Executive Order 2020-42 limits gatherings and travel and requires all workers who are not necessary to sustain or protect life to stay home. Executive Order 2020-42 also imposes more stringent limitations on stores to reduce foot traffic, slow the spread of the coronavirus, and save lives.

“Michigan has the third highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country, and we’re still on the upswing. We must continue to do everything we can to slow the spread and protect our families,” said Governor Whitmer. “Data shows that most Michiganders are doing their part by staying home and staying safe. That’s good, but we must keep it up. When we do, we can save lives and shorten the amount of time we’re working through this crisis, which will be good for our families and good for our economy in the long-run. We can also protect critical infrastructure workers like doctors, nurses, grocery store employees, and child care workers. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that people stay home and stay safe.”

“It’s clear that staying home is the most effective way we can slow the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan,” said Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Chief Deputy for Health and Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun. “This aggressive action will help us protect more people and ease the strain on our health care system.”

Executive Order 2020-42 prohibits all businesses and operations from requiring workers to leave their homes, unless those workers are necessary to sustain or protect life or to conduct minimum basic operations. Businesses and operations are to designate the workers who meet those criteria, and must adopt social distancing practices and other mitigation measures to protect workers and patrons in the performance of that in-person work.

Workers who are necessary to sustain or protect life include those in health care and public health, law enforcement and public safety, grocery store workers, and more. For a full list of these critical infrastructure workers, click the link to Executive Order 2020-42 at the bottom of this page. To enable these critical workers to get to their workplaces, automobile dealerships will now be allowed to open for remote sales, though showrooms must remain closed.

Under the new order, all public and private gatherings among persons outside a single household remain temporarily prohibited. Though Michiganders may leave the house to get groceries or needed supplies, the new order encourages people to limit the number of household members running errands to the maximum extent possible. As before, people may engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking, running, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, or any other recreational activity, consistent with remaining at least six feet from people from outside a person’s household and with other restrictions imposed by prior executive orders. The order clarifies, however, that travel for vacations or for any other purpose is prohibited.

A new section of the order imposes restrictions on stores in an effort to reduce crowds. Large stores must limit the number of people in the store at one time to no more than 4 customers for every 1,000 square feet of customer floor space; small stores must limit capacity to 25% of the total occupancy limits (including employees) under the fire codes. To regulate entry, stores must establish lines with markings for patrons to enable them to stand at least six feet apart from one another while waiting. Large stores must also close areas of the store that are dedicated to carpeting, flooring, furniture, garden centers, plant nurseries, or paint.

“This doesn’t mean everything will go back to normal on May 1,” Gov. Whitmer continued. “But based on the data we have right now, this is the appropriate window for an extension. It will take time to safely and responsibly re-open the economy, which is why we will continue to provide critical unemployment support and assistance to our small businesses during this challenging time. We will get through this if we all continue to do our part.”

All individuals who leave their home or place of residence must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the individual’s household.

    If this Governor has her way, there won’t be a functional, viable private company in the state by August.

  2. Sandra

    Sad to see, she doesn’t have any business expirience. The counties hit hard from the virus, of course, should be more mandated, but rural areas have to be looked at separately!

    “After lawsuit, Whitmer clarifies protesting allowed under stay home order”

    They are selling torches at Menards in Jackson. The pitchforks I am not sure because I do not know if they are in the garden department.

  5. A. Moser

    Governor says no lawn cutting or buying paint? What in the world does this have to do with the virus? How about getting someone to anser the phone at MESC/

  6. Brian DuBridge

    Is Michigan Conservative Coalition or Michigan United for Liberty creating and starting a recall petition? Playing at protests is an exercise in useless activity. Removing the offender is the solution.

    1. Joan

      The recall law was changed several years ago making it virtually impossible to recall an elected official. The 1st step in order for any recall petition to be valid is that it MUST be approved by the Michigan Board of Canvassers.
