So no, this isn’t going to be over anytime soon. Does anybody believe that end date of December 2 will actually be lifted? Are neighbors going to be encouraged to be snitches? If this is enforced it can be seen as another revenue source so it has every reason to stay in effect. The Democrat Governor Kate Brown just put a “freeze” in place for gatherings of six or more people punishable by fines or jail time.
A Mandate and a law may have the same power
According to one source. Neither laws nor taxes end. Gyms, museums and skating rinks have to close. Restaurants can only offer take out. Businesses may be permanently shuttering and their owners moving out of state.
In addition to suddenly finding another revenue source, Governor Brown’s mandate maybe connected to the Dominion kickbacks. Follow the money.
The mandate will push business online
Grocery stores and pharmacies are affected. Grocery stores in particular can be crowded at different times of the year. People still need to eat!
What if those outdoor gatherings adhere to masks and the six foot rule, even though being outdoors is supposedly considered healthy? It’s fresh air. Doctors and moms everywhere used to encourage people to get outside in the fresh air and get exercise, it’s good for you!
The Governor is terribly sorry about the mandate
But it’s for our own good. You’re just not taking this seriously. “For the last eight months, I have been asking Oregonians to follow the letter and the spirit of the law and we have not chosen to engage law enforcement. At this point in time, unfortunately, we have no other option. We are trying to stop this ferocious virus from spreading even more quickly and far wide, and to save lives,” governor Brown said.
She emphasized the threat of indeed going into people’s houses. “I will take a stronger legal action as appropriate. I’ve already directed the superintendent of state police to begin to work with local law enforcement to legally enforce the informal social gathering orders.” This might be in the same category as a nuisance law. The state police “will be working with local law enforcement to enforce the Governor’s orders, in the same way local law enforcement officers respond to noise complaints for loud parties, for example, and issue citations.”
