  • My hospital vaccinated it's first people this morning. I couldn't be more excited. I'm heading in to help support the evening clinic.
    I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

      But to your actual point, this is a really stupid stunt. Losing your liquor license for 60 days isn’t that bad during a pandemic. Losing it for 5 years because none of these idiots has ever been told no, that seems bad. And probable. The state should have pulled their business licenses and arrested them.
      Given how much they rely on being open, just pull their license. There's no need or benefit to an arrest spectacle- that would just add to the "they want to end business" that goes on on their circles. The license lost would close the doors, and that would end it. Sell the license to someone more responsible, and let them run with it.

      The real sad part is that some of them may actually see that the fault lies with their representation in congress, who would easily support them for 100 days. Get people's tax forms, look at their income for 365 days, and send them a check for 1/3 of their stated income. Easy, peasy. Anyway, I have seen one of the "brave" actually put the blame firmly on the US Congress- it's either pay them to close, or let them open.

      We are more than capable of doing that.

      And it would not be hard to project take out only support- do the above support 100% for the servers who can't work. Start with 50% support for the workers who can work (who will certainly face reductions), and then tell them that the difference will be made up in taxes. That way owners can add or subtract one or two people as the actual output is above or below 50%.

        The only thing I can conclude is that these establishments must already have a legal team lined up and ready to file suit if they are shutdown by the state health department. They want a court battle so they can try to make this about their economic freedumbs.

        • I can't wait for the deniers to figure out that there's a difference between the count of hospital ICU beds and hospital beds in total. Once they figure out that not all doctors are trained to work in the ICU, and that placing a sick person in the cosmetic surgery' recovery room bed isn't going to yield the same results. Therefore, people are concern with overall hospital bed usage rate, but rather the current ICU bed usage rate. Of course, they won't really know that until they're busy dying in an ICU bed all because of a supposed hoax and hospital staff that can't - though valiantly they try - fully keep up with the need.

            The gyms should be closed permanantly and the owners should be barred from a business license for 5 years. Especially the Crossfit Cults screw them.

              I think some of the "names" got spooked by the idea of losing out on PPP funds. The "Anonymous" in Hennepin County will wait to see the backlash and what the state does before they name themselves.

                So, we can't lose money by being shut down, but we can pay that money to lawyers to file stupid lawsuits for us?

                Yep, sounds like 'Merica.

                • I enjoy the people on Twitter who respond with "I am sure they won't miss you" whenever people say they are going to boycott. Pretty sure they are pulling this stunt because they miss any and all business so...

                        One thing I was thinking about the other day is this. Walz is obviously the villain for the people that want to re-open, but Keith Ellison is quickly becoming #2. Ellison has never shied away from a tv camera or a microphone, and he is (and will continue to be) the guy responsible for shutting these businesses down.

                        Ellison has also made himself the face of the prosecution of the George Floyd cops. All it takes is one on the jury. I don't think you ever want your lawyer to be one of the most disliked guys in the state.

                        • Florida has never been a model of accountable governance, but this depravity reported today... it seems so unnecessarily gross... they blocked reporting of COVID deaths for two weeks leading up to the election to make sure relevant information on the surge didn't reach the MAGA voters (as if they would have paid any attention anyway, but hiding info. on citizen deaths, really?). And speaking of DeSantis soul sister, don't get me started on DeJoy openly burning the records of his crime spree. The more I learn about Republicans the more angry I get.
                          Beginning of Trump's term I'm like "watch out fellow conservatives, this is going to hurt our party in the long run"; end of Trump's term "at least this open corruption will help us burn the entire vile Republican crime family to the ground."

                            And I'm sure you were called a RINO/CINO and/or a cuckservative for that.

                              We haven't eradicated Spanish Flu. I'm not certain an influenza virus can ever be eradicated. We can control them with immunization and public health education. We can prosecute criminals who exploit fear and ignorance to make money.

                                Walz is caving on the gyms. Also on youth sports, probably to try to dodge that lawsuit that was started by the sports organizations. And you can invite one family to Christmas, so pick the best cook.
