If you return to Washington DC after “non-essential” travel to certain states you must self-quarantine for 14 days. If you travel to the same place on “essential” business then you are not under the same restrictions. Does that mean the virus will be more or less deadly based on why you decided to travel? Probably not, but it does mean that going to Georgia for a Democrat’s funeral is definitely an “essential” activity.
In Nevada, churches cannot have more than 50 people in them at a time, regardless of how large the church is. Casinos, on the other hand, are allowed to have up to 50% capacity. So, if your church can seat 1,000 you can only have 50 people but if your casino fits 1,000 people you can have up to 500 gamblers at a time. Again, does the virus know if you are a worshipper or a degenerate gambler? No, it does not. Casinos pay more taxes, but we are still going with the “public health” argument for the lockdowns, right?
Where I live in New Jersey, Governor Murphy has managed to achieve the highest rate of COVID-19 deaths per million in, not just America but the world. Still, he gets to tell us what we can and can’t do. When protestors complained about Murphy’s lockdown orders he insisted, “we’re trying to save lives.” A few weeks later, large Black Lives Matter rallies took place in the state. The governor not only encouraged them but even attended one. His reasoning was along the lines of, “yeah, but this is really important.” It should be pointed out that 1st Amendment was written because people did think the government had the right to determine what speech is or is not important.
Most people don’t want to get sick or see others get sick. People are willing to make sacrifices if that will help. But here’s the thing, the virus can’t be dangerous sometimes and not others. It doesn’t care about political causes or intentions. When your “medical” advice is arbitrary and changes for non-medical reasons, then you have lost any sense of credibility.
