    No doubt at the behest of the commie scum governor. All these politicians and the police serving them need to be put away.

    Michigan Attorney General Sends in State Police to Shut Down 77 Year Old Barber

    Things keep getting stranger in Michigan.

    As I have written about during the past couple of days here at RedState, we in the Great Lakes State have been under lockdown since mid-March. The Governor has told us we need to stay in our rooms until the end of May based on data and science which she has so far not shared with the rest of the class.

    Last Monday, a 77-year-old barber decided he needed to open his doors to feed his family. I wrote about that right here Standing up to Big Gretch: 77-Year-Old Michigan Barber Defies Governor Whitmer and Opens His Shop, then about the local police showing up to give him some fines Michigan Barber Who Has Defied Gov Whitmer Gets Fined for Opening.

    But wait, you all, there's more. The Michigan militia is at the barber shop and they say they will not allow the jack booted thugs to shut the barber down.


    OWOSSO, Mich. --- It's day six of 77-year-old Owosso barber Karl Manke defying Governor Whitmer's orders and opening his shop.

    Dozens of people are still gathering outside the business to show support. Saturday morning there was a line of more than 15 customers outside the door waiting for haircuts.
    Members of the Michigan Militia say they will take action to keep Manke from going to jail.

    Watch out for social media blackouts and disinformation on this topic. If the state police decide to use force, there is a chance that they'll try to prevent others from seeing what's actually happening.

    EDIT: I don't know what the Michigan Militia uses for communication, but let's hope they have something in place besides cell phones.

    In olden days, the sheriff would have gone in and said, "FLoyd, y'all know that you can't be open. Finish up here and don't do it again." Now, all police-citizen interactions require overwhelming force on the part of the government.

    In the olden days, we wouldn't be sheltering in place. The spanish flu was way more dangerous than COVID-19, yet people still continued to find a way to keep working.

    So stupid.

    I took Mrs. Zoid out for sit down breakfast at our local bagel place this morning. They are serving in the dining room again.

    Mothers Day is tough for the Mrs. and I.

    I don't know anything about the Spanish flu so I don't know if you boys are comparing oranges with oranges, nor do I know anything about Michigan's Governor but if I did I still wouldn't call her commie scum, to much misplaced emotion. Plus I been called that myself on our forum, it ain't polite and discloses a poor upbringing.

    If being 77 gives this idiot license to create a petri dish for Covid transferal I don't buy it, having said that I don't think he should go to jail either.

    My response is prompted by attending a couple conference calls this past week involving Tufts Medical School people advising an international retailer as advisory for potential business openings. Bottom line I got out of these meetings was the tide hasn't hit the high water mark and we're putting our boats in to early. A rule of measure will be visible within the next three - four weeks.

    I saw a video of the old man stating that the reason he opened back up was because he was running out of money and had ran up his credit cards. Looks like he violated the gov by wanting to feed himself. The governor had no authority to shut down businesses and put people out of work. She is nazi scum. The police enforcing her orders are no better.

    Mike you got to make up your mind, either the Governor is a commie or a Nazi, she cant be both. I haven't seen the video.

    I get a sense that we might come up short in meeting the strict definition of that species as well. Salud Miguel!

    Nazi's were the National Socialist Party. They identified as socialists. Of course, no one on the Left likes to talk about that little detail.

    From what I've seen and heard of the Michigan Governor is that she is a power drunk bitch. IMHO.

    I was talking to my boss about how Rosa Parks wasnt trying to change the world. She was just tired.

    These AMERICANS arent trying to be rebels or revolutionaries. They are legit trying to feed their families. Yes, they are risking their health but so are the incoming customers.

    @Scaramouche I hear you but what is a person to do when they cannot pay their rent or mortgage?

    Many people get HIV/AIDS from unprotected sex. It once was/is an epidemic. Do we start forcing people to buy condoms and contraceptives. I don’t have the best apples to apples but my points are:

    1. Let people chose their fate. No one is forcing anyone to go out and get a haircut.

    2. Not everyone is you (rhetorical you). They have no financial options. All the “should have saved” and “I came from nothing” is good for you (rhetorical you) but real people are scared and broke.

    3. How much of our liberties are we willing to surrender to fear? I’m Chinese. When do we do wait for the government to put Asians in Internment Camps because someone found out all Asians can be carriers?

    I appreciate your perspective & have no argument to offer. The seemingly unanswerable deliema a pandemic puts us in is your individual choice puts others beyond yourself at risk.
