Michigan Citizens Decide To Go To Drive In Movie, Making Governor Unhappy

They’re totally defying her un-Constitutional order

Moviegoers pack Michigan drive-in theater, defying Whitmer’s stay-home order

Cars were lined up for an estimated quarter mile or more to get into the Capri Drive-in Theater Friday, May 15, when it opened in defiance of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order.

Battle Creek resident Ashley Rathbun was among those that ventured out to catch a movie.

“We’ve been cooped up in the house for the last couple months,’’ she said. “We heard the drive in was going to be opening and we said that’s a nice way to get out and spend some family time.”

While Tom Magocs, who co-owns the theater with his wife, Susan, was getting ready for the first movie screenings of the year, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was answering a question about the Coldwater-area business and others defying her executive orders to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

“I think the vast majority of people in our state get it and they’re doing the right things,” Whitmer said during her COVID-19 press conference in Lansing. “For those who aren’t, you know, we take this serious. This is not a suggestion. These are not thoughts about how you can protect yourself. This is the force of law. And we expect to people to follow the law.”

The family drive-in theater is in a category of businesses that the governor’s office says is temporarily prohibited as part of an executive order. Whitmer’s order to shelter in place and all non-essential businesses be shuttered isn’t set to expire until May 28.

If everyone is in their cars and staying 6 feet away from those not in the household, what’s the problem? That’s what they told us, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and social distance. It’s not like other people are sitting right next to each other. Some people are just drunk on power and like telling others how to live their lives. Speaking of her order

A Michigan Court of Claims judge is tasked with determining if Gov. Gretchen Whitmer acted beyond her legal authority when she extended the coronavirus state of emergency on April 30 without the approval of the Legislature.

If she did, that could mean every subsequent executive order Whitmer issued throughout the coronavirus pandemic, including extension of the stay-at-home order until May 28, wasn’t valid.

If she loses, will she comply?

    I don’t think her, “Because I’m the Mommy, that’s why”, attitude is Constitutional.

      Every day the Elwood’s of America reveal more of themselves for what they really are: fascists. We have always known that but now the “I see nothing” general public is getting a taste of what these dogs are all about.

      now they’re even admitting they want to murder all white people:

      “Dr. Carol Baker was appointed Chair of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in 2009. Carol is well known for her work in immunization and education.

      The Houston doctor sat on an “expert” panel of experts sponsored by the National Meningitis Association in New York City on May 9, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. During the panel discussion the far left doctor took a swipe at Donald Trump and white Americans. Dr. Baker told the gathered audience,

      Dr. Carol Baker: “So I have the solution. Every study published in the last five years, when you look at vaccine refusers. I’m not talking about…hesitance, most of them we can talk into coming to terms. But refusers. We’ll just get rid of all the whites in the United States… Guess who wants to get vaccinated the most? Immigrants.”

      Not one person from the audience challenged the hateful doctor. Since they are being pogramed by Elwood’s bosses to OBEY!!!!

      Trump 2020 DO NOT OBEY!!!

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye,

        We understand how frustrated and angry you are. Do you need a short-term loan? We can loan you money if that’s your concern. Are you scared that the virus is gonna get ya? Are you scared that tRump will lose the election and you’ll see at least 4 years of Dem WH, Senate and House?

        We note too that while you blame Dem governors for all your troubles, it’s the virus causing all the problems. Let’s say you run a diner in the metro Philly area that stayed open during a pandemic. Could you attract enough workers or customers to survive? Once all your workers were infected, what would you do? Would your insurance company continue to insure you and your diner knowing that you were likely to get sued? Would you make your customers sign a disclaimer that if they became infected they wouldn’t hold you liable?

        Do the federal, state or local governments have ANY responsibility to protect Americans, or is it every man, woman and child for themselves? Is it a fascist government forcing immunization on schoolchildren before they can attend school? Is it fascist to ban prostitution? Are truancy laws fascist?

        Based on a facetious comment to make a point by a Houston physician you conclude “they” want to murder all white people? Clutch your pearls, snowflake, and fall on the fainting couch, LOL. Do you want to murder all American Muslims or just deport them?

        You’ve gone round the bend.

        After all, all Kye has is hate.

        • Kye says:

          Looks like I triggered you again. You’re easy, Elwood. That entire diatribe can be summed up in two words: Bull shit. Your ability not to care about anyone but yourself and what you desire surpasses all expectations. Good for you, you’re officially a triggered moron.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Kye,

            You’ve proffered a predictable response from a demented snowflake.

            No answers of course, just vitriol.

        • formwiz says:

          You really need new writers. Everything is same old, same old.

          You really think the Demos have a shot this year? With their conduct at all levels? They can’t even win a special election in CA.

          We note too that while you blame Dem governors for all your troubles, it’s the virus causing all the problems.

Would you make your customers sign a disclaimer that if they became infected they wouldn’t hold you liable?

          Clearly, you haven’t been ourt lately. And you said you were working 6 days a week.

          People are fine. The curve is flat and most people know this thing is a farce. And, yes, there would be plenty of traffic in that diner because Tom Wolf is one of the worst of the tyrants.

          And your questions sound like some Lefty laundry list to keep the country closed.

          You asked last night if I thought the Demos intended to keep the lockdown going forever. You just gave me the answer. This is what they’ve been saying from the start.

          Do you know they’re calling it the Cuomo Crisis in NY?

          Do the federal, state or local governments have ANY responsibility to protect Americans, or is it every man, woman and child for themselves? Is it a fascist government forcing immunization on schoolchildren before they can attend school? Is it fascist to ban prostitution? Are truancy laws fascist?

          They certainly didn’t when SARS and MERS and H1N1 was here. That was Zippy’s watch, of course.

          And prostitution or truancy isn’t the issue here. The curve is flat, deaths are about 660. Time to go back to work. Your scheme of a third Depression just isn’t panning out.

          People want to go back to work.

          Based on a facetious comment to make a point by a Houston physician you conclude “they” want to murder all white people? Clutch your pearls, snowflake, and fall on the fainting couch, LOL. Do you want to murder all American Muslims or just deport them?

          And everybody thought Hitler was kidding about the Jews, too.

    The only demented snowflake is, of course, Jeffery.

    He was so hoping the tyrannical Democrats could keep the country shut down, hopefully through the election, so the Demos mail-in vote fraud scheme could be used.

    Fact is, the Demos have begun to crack because the tax money isn’t coming and the people are getting angry. That’s what happens when you take away their livelihoods.

    They’s suing Whitler for her dictatorial regime the way people did in WI.

    It’s all coming down, sweetie. You lose yet again.

  3. formwiz says:

    BTW For those weary of Jeffery’s whine about How many people have to die, etc., a few comebacks

    Feel free to pass it aling.

    • Phil says:

      You need an addition to your questions, with a “science” issue that few are talking about that puts this shutdown idiocy in perspective.

      How many people need to die of cancer in order for you to feel safe?

      In an average month 150,000 Americans are diagnosed are diagnosed with cancer, but thanks to medical advances and early detection/screening over 90,000 will survive it. However, with the shutdowns only a fraction of the normal number of doctor’s checkups, mammograms, colonoscopies, etc, are happening.

      For every month we shut down due to a virus that kills elderly people with co-morbitidies, thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of additional people of all ages who could have gone on to live for decades will instead die of their cancer because it was diagnosed and treated later than it would have been before.

  4. formwiz says:

    A couple of good pieces on what’s really going on out there.

    One from the Eminent Mr Surber, the other from Insty.

    Guaranteed to send Baghdad Bunny into a frenzy of, “Not true! Not true!”.

  5. Kye says:

    He’s already in a frenzy of denial, formwiz. His rants are as you say, the same old shit different day. He’s actually giddy at the thought of his fellow Americans dying, losing their jobs or having their businesses taken away without a fair trial or “just compensation”.

    Mr. Oh sorry, Dr. Compassion wants us all submissive so his commie friends can take over. Ain’t gonna happen. Even though far too many American men have lost their balls plenty haven’t and WE WON’T GIVE UP OUR LIBERTY.

    Yesterday I had to go for my blood tests required for my lung transplant (monthly but held up 2 months, thanks to commie Gov. Wolf) . Dr. Elwood will be sad to hear whilst there the nurse gave my wife and me a Wuhan Virus test and we’re both negative. Sorry Dr. Elwood we can’t infect anybody and it looks like we’ll live to your consternation, sorry.I know you’d rather be broke, impoverished and dead. Cause all you have is envy and hate.

    But you will be happy to hear my barber went out of business, a close friend had to bankrupt his bar in Roslyn (he still has the liquor license worth $350,000), and my pool company went out. Just some more uneducated “connies” for you to laugh at. You know us “deplorables”, we “non-essentials”. Get those FEMA camps ready that Hussein built you mat need them.

    The Red Chinese Virus promoted by Nazi Pelousy and “Killer” Cuomo on Chink New years didn’t put one American our of work or bankrupted their business, it just made some sick like any other virus or flu. The hysteria, fear and panic created by the left politicians and their hand maidens in the media and the DELIBERATE and UNCONSTITUTIONAL proclamations by BLUE STATE COMMIE GOVERNORS AND MAYORS did. Your party deliberately and with forthought did and still is killing our country and our people. That’s on you not Trump. And the left still isn’t finished, they want another 3 trillion dollars for Hunter Biden an the Clinton crime family.

    I sure hope Trump wins and you pussies go crazy so we can finally end this shit.
    This is how the fukin stupid Red Chinese infused ruling elite Democommies of NYC run a virus scare. They put mom’s and barbers in jail and release criminals. Smart eh?

    The roughly 110 inmates have accounted for 190 arrests since the pandemic took hold of the Big Apple, according to police.
    Of those arrests, 45 — or roughly one-quarter — were for burglaries, helping drive the 43-percent spike in break-ins over the last month, according to NYPD data.
    One suspect accused of driving up the numbers is alleged serial burglar Terrance Brown, who was busted Sunday for breaking into a string of restaurants that are closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, police said.
    Brown, who has 20 previous arrests, is suspected of 18 burglaries at closed eateries from April 21 to May 4. …
    When Brown was finally charged for the break-ins Sunday, he immediately was returned to the street after his arraignment because of New York controversial bail-reform laws, according to police sources and court records. The Elwood method of jurisprudence.
    Meanwhile, as criminals are released to commit more crimes, NYC police are manhandling moms and dragging them away from their children for the crime of improperly wearing the face masks that may or may not prevent the spread of COVID-19, depending on which day you listen to the experts.

    You are all hate.

    Trump 2020 let’s toss out these traitors and give them what they deserve.

    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this topic here on your web page.

      Remove this youtube user. He is wanting you to click on his youtube to then watch a video where he gets hits and makes money. I clicked on it and of course it takes me to a website for a bullet vibrator.

    • Klemdadiddlehopper says:

      sadly this is everything wrong with youtube They let people post porn but they kick people off who are talking about covid-19 with a phd in virology and discussing ways in which their hospital is dealing with the outbreak.

      Tim Cast is a lefty. He was actually the founder of Vice and has since gone out on his own. He Bashes democrats. Here is what he and 1000’s of others are talking about with Youtube banning anyone making content they dont agree with.

  8. Kye says:

    We need some government intervention for a change and can’t get it. There is no reason why Google, Farcebook, YouTube etc. should have the right to censor, delete or shadow ban any non-porno totally legal posts , videos or information on their sites. I know, I know you’re all gonna say they own the site and they have a right to do whatever they want. I do not believe the intent of our constitution was to allow our rights to be stamped on just because it’s a private entity especially when they must get government licensing etc. to exist. It’s political propaganda collusion between companies and the State when this happens. I’ll bet you if they were doing this to all the leftists they would be shut down in a NY minute.

    I know all the arguments but I have always been skeptical of allowing private businesses to deny our civil and constitutional rights. I don’t like it.

    Do you remember what all the liberals used to run around screaming in their usual condescending virtuous voice “We may disagree with what you say but we’ll defend to the death your right to say it”? They don’t say that any more, we do. I guess that’s why the liberals are now all communist leftists. So fukin’ much for tolerance.

    Trump 2020 Stop the censorship!!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Government controlling private business (especially private media) is the cornerstone of fascism.

      Should a company be able to limit the free speech rights of an employee?

      Let’s say a Sr. VP of a corporation that relies on gov’t contracts bashes the administration on social media. Wouldn’t firing that Sr. VP be a restriction on her speech?

      The government currently doesn’t control what is posted on facebook, twitter, Google, Instagram, TikTok etc. Do you really want the government to dictate what can and cannot be said?

      • formwiz says:

        Also communism. It’s called state capitalism.

        But that’s what Ol’ Purple Lips did with GM. 100% pure National Socialism. I thought he was your hero.

        Do you really want the government to dictate what can and cannot be said?

        Your buddy, Dr Evil, does.

      • gitarcarver says:

        Government controlling private business (especially private media) is the cornerstone of fascism.

        Agreed. So the government demanding cake bakers, photographers, etc create something against their held beliefs is fascism.

        Should a company be able to limit the free speech rights of an employee?

        Yes. If you are going to accept a paycheck and agree to certain policies that do not allow you to speak for the company or a representative of that company, hit the bricks.

        Let’s say a Sr. VP of a corporation that relies on gov’t contracts bashes the administration on social media. Wouldn’t firing that Sr. VP be a restriction on her speech?

        Nope. It is a violation of the company’s polices.

        The government currently doesn’t control what is posted on facebook, twitter, Google, Instagram, TikTok etc. Do you really want the government to dictate what can and cannot be said?

        So once again, you agree that laws for bakers, photographers, etc forcing them to create things against their moral beliefs are wrong. Glad we cleared that up.

        The problem is really that some courts have ruled that in certain circumstances, private property becomes the “public square” where First Amendment rights do exist. Clearly the mega companies are electronic public squares and sell themselves on that basis.

        Should companies be able advertise one service and then deny that service?

        The second problem is that as many people have pointed out, companies like facebook, twitter, Google, Instagram, TikTok etc should not be able to censor ideas and then claim Section 230 immunity for what they do not censor.

        As for Facebook and their censoring:

        Facebook controls as much as 80% of social media traffic. That means that it has the power to erase conversations, shift narratives, and control how people speak to one another.

        With 190 million users in the United States, the social network monopoly has more control over what people see than all of the media giants combined do. And now Facebook is putting some very troubling political activists in charge of its Oversight Board who will decide how it censors.

        “You can imagine some sort of structure, almost like a Supreme Court, that is made up of independent folks who don’t work for Facebook, who ultimately make the final judgment call on what should be acceptable speech in a community that reflects the social norms and values of people all around the world,” Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg had described the Board.

        What does Facebook’s Supreme Court of Censorship look like when you zoom in?

        Only a quarter of the Oversight Board originates from the United States. That means three quarters of the censorship court comes from countries with no First Amendment. While people from outside the United States may believe in certain kinds of free speech, political speech in this country will be determined by a majority Third World board of left-leaning political activists.

        And even there the balance is curiously tilted.

        3 members of the 20 member board are Muslim or come from Muslim countries. Only one board member is Hindu. Considering that there are approximately 1.1 billion Hindus and 1.8 billion Muslims, the Facebook Oversight Board favors Muslim countries at the expense of Hindus.

        Considering the pressure by Islamists and their allies to censor India’s Hindu political movements and civil rights organizations combating Islamic violence, this is troubling.

        The Oversight Board also has only one Asian member for around 1.8 billion people.

        Of the 3 Muslim nationals, Kyle Shideler of the Center for Security Policy has noted that Tawakkol Karman was a top leader in a Muslim Brotherhood linked group with ties to Al Qaeda.

        Do you want Facebook relying on the laws of other countries to apply to speech here in the United States? Do you want terrorists who hate the US to be determining what is acceptable speech?

        Of course you do because in the long run, whether it be discussions on race, politics, religion, AGW, etc, the left doesn’t want a true exchange of ideas. They hate ideas that are different than the ones they hold so they are willing to say “you don’t have the right to say that and we want the government and companies to stamp out your voice.”

        Such is the hate from the left that they cannot stand dissenting voices.

        Then again, hate is all the left has.

      • Kye says:

        “Government controlling private business (especially private media) is the cornerstone of fascism.”

        It’s one cornerstone there are others like closing businesses against the law, denying the RKBA, stopping religious services, dictating who is and is not “essential” forcing people into their homes. See, there’s a lot of cornerstones.

        The point is if a private enterprise is a public forum for speech it should not be able to censor. Period. Anybody. Commies, Nazi’s, Mooslems, Jews, Christians, conservatives or leftist dogs. You like censorship because you’re a commie, we don’t. If they don’t want all opinions then they should advertise themselves as “Facebook-home of leftist opinion” , or “NYT, all the leftist news fit to print”. At least be forced to admit their leanings so we can choose and so we as consumers know not to go there. Why is that so fukin’ hard for a commie like you? It’s not enough you own academia, the Fake News Media, Hollywood, the Deep State you MUST own the information platforms too?

        Have you ever noticed Elwood, that you can go to conservative sites like this one and spew your foul pablum but when I comment at Vox or Huffpo it disappears? And you know what? That’s okay because they are admittedly leftist sites and are under no obligation to give non-leftists a voice. But Facebook, Google and all those sites are forums, platforms supposedly neutral. They lie. As usual.
