Gauleiter Gretchen Blinks

Maybe it is still possible to get through to them. In the face of armed protesters and a Republican-controlled legislature moving to curtail her autocratic powers, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has revised the arbitrary rules under which her subjects must live, loosening some of the most conspicuously absurd restrictions. However, the state of emergency has been extended to May 15.


Ahead of an 11 a.m. Friday news briefing, Whitmer unveiled her latest update to the stay-at-home order, which will replace the one that was set to expire April 30.

Certain restrictions previously included under the state’s stay-at-home order, including bans on motorized boating, golf and retail operations like garden centers, are lifted under the new order.

None of these restrictions should have been imposed in the first place.

Landscapers, lawn-service companies, nurseries and bike repair shops will be allowed to return to work subject to strict social distancing, and big-box stores will be allowed to reopen closed sections of the store. Other retailers will now be allowed to reopen for curbside pick-up or delivery.

How generous. People are even allowed to travel between their residences, although this is “strongly discouraged.”

Gyms, bars, etc remain closed. Face masks must be worn in enclosed public spaces. But Gauleiter Gretchen’s iron fist appears to be loosening.

The entire state of Michigan is not Detroit, which has been a hotbed for the Chinese virus, just as the entire country is not New York City. Yet authorities rule as if the most draconian measures were universally justified, imposing the usual Big Government one-size-fits all mentality. They will push ever more restrictive measures until people push back.
