Tired of her threatening us citizens of Michigan everytime she has a presser, "If I don't see Michiganders masking up and numbers going down I will take us back to phase whatever and shut it all down again" That is being a bully....
I'm cautiously optimistic that the MSC will end her unilateral actions. Also, it looks like if that does or doesn't happen, the 1945 law will likely be overturned: https://www.freep.com/story/news/politi ... 780148002/
There is a real chance that if these are invalidated we’ll get laws from our brilliant legislature like the one proposed in Ohio allowing places to opt out of mask mandates.... which defeats the fucking purpose of a mask mandate. So it’s not surprising she’d want to hold onto the power and not hand it over to them. The results would probably be idiotic bills that prioritize opening up over public health which would follow the national line from Jason Miller this morning... “time to reopen and go back to normal in the country”... as if 1000 deaths a day is somehow just fine and dandy in the country and we aren’t hurtling towards a very bad winter?
Are you old enough to have seen and adored Tommy Boy? If so, please remember the point about guarantees on a box. Then, realize that guarantees are more effective than masks.
Fortunately I had better taste in films than that. You’ll have to let me in on it.

Whatever this debacle started out as, it's 90% politics and 10% science at this point on all sides.

I AM advocating for normal. There are people who are at risk from Covid. Protect them.

If masks social distancing etc. work, open up. Not this pussfied 25% capacity clownery, 100%.

Keeping it closed, reduced capacity or moving back means none of that stuff is very effective.

It's not brain surgery
How are you going to socially distance at 100% capacity? 100% is predicated on everybody being elbow to asshole which makes it harder to socially distance... Apparently visualizing a crowd in a room isn’t your thing?
100% capacity is determined by the Fire Dept. not the Health Dept. Bars & restaurants must display that certificate. "elbow to asshole" is not the unit of measurement...

It’s a tongue in cheek way of saying packer in fairly tightly... tighter than what you could 6’ distance with. I hope you are smart enough to realize this.

B1G Gretch pulls "data" from her ass (elbow deep) If a profession required a MI issued license to perform she suspended it no questions asked. don't be surprised if that happy-go-lawsuit dam breaking attorney general put in a clause where accepting aid voids state liability. please add business casualties to those phony covid numbers.

When somebody dies of Covid from work they are added. In the meantime we can increase the speed that happens if we go back to 100% right now.

Of all the manipulative tricks that Whitmer and her allies in the state government and media have tried, nothing is more disgusting than her attempt to boost the COVID-19 numbers by exploiting the tragic death of a two-month old baby with other obvious health problems:

While gastroschisis is listed as the immediate cause of death, an accompanying investigation report from the medical examiner's office noted that he "died from COVID-19." He had tested positive for the virus on Sept. 8.

"He had GI symptoms of the disease, which exacerbated his tenuous congenital defects," the report said.
This means that he wouldn’t have died at the exact moment he did absent Covid... makes sense to me. That death is a Covid death. It’s not number boosting at all.

Died "with Covid" should be different than died "from Covid".

GI symptoms of the disease which exacerbated (accelerated) the death...

Despite tossed signatures, Unlock Michigan says it has support to limit Whitmer's authority

"Unlock Michigan said Wednesday it's gathered more than 500,000 signatures to repeal a 1945 law that allows a Michigan governor to declare an emergency and keep the declaration in place without input from state lawmakers. The emergency declaration is important because it gives Whitmer the ability to take unilateral actions to combat the pandemic, such as closing businesses or suspending state laws."

Michigan Attorney General Will No Longer Enforce Governor’s Executive Orders After Supreme Court Ruling

“In light of the Supreme Court’s decision on Friday, the Attorney General will no longer enforce the Governor’s Executive Orders through criminal prosecution. However, her decision is not binding on other law enforcement agencies or state departments with independent enforcement authority. It’s her fervent hope that people continue to abide by the measures that Governor Whitmer put in place - like wearing face masks, adhering to social distancing requirements and staying home when sick - since they’ve proven effective at saving lives. If it weren’t for the Governor’s actions, countless more of our friends, family and neighbors would have been lost to COVID-19. We can respect both the court’s decision and the advice of medical experts by continuing with these important measures voluntarily.”
