Hundreds of cars, trucks and SUVs descended on Michigan’s state capital Wednesday afternoon as part of a noisy protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far.

Dubbed “Operation Gridlock” and organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, the protest did just that – creating bumper-to-bumper traffic throughout downtown Lansing as demonstrators blasted their horns, waved Americans flags and hoisted placards deriding Whitmer’s orders and demanding that she reopen the state’s economy.

The lockdown measures are meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, but Whitmer has gone further than some other governors -- and the backlash in Michigan is among the most heated in the country.

I get your point, but we need balance to maintain equilibrium. I don't agree with a bunch of laws, but I am not going to support anarchy either. I love me neighbor, but I alos don't want him painting his house Pink.

My math is way off. I predicted 3/4 of his statements. So, 75%.

Me not being a critical thinker is the conspiracy I didn't expect.

I love those two lines.

But geez, banyon had to waste your time by asking?

Why? It's his house. You want laws for something like that?

Don't ever live in Bermuda. Lots of pink houses there. They're rather nice ya' know.

I never had one when I was in Boston and had staff, and never had one in Florida. I did pay sales tax in Boston which I collected, but what I do is not taxable here.

Those lines would be great except for this:

What’s more, considering pairs of people in which one person definitely caught the coronavirus from the other, scientists estimate that about 44 percent of COVID-19 cases may spread from person to person before symptoms appear. The results indicate that efforts to track down contacts of people with COVID-19 should include people encountered several days before a person’s symptoms appear, researchers suggest April 15 in Nature Medicine.

That’s the whole reason this virus is so difficult to contain. You can’t presume people who otherwise appear healthy aren’t spreading it.

So the proposed model of letting healthy people roam freely and quarantine only the sick is like saying I’m going to swim in the ocean but stay away from the salt.

Four Northern Michigan sheriffs said they will not have strict enforcement of the Gov. Whitmer's orders and will instead “deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common sense in assessing the apparent violation.”https://t.co/jP0mRQ8E8m via @manisteenews

You can get in a row boat or sail boat but not a motor boat???

Big Box stores can't sell things like lawn mowers or plant seeds???

I mean some of the stuff she did just makes 0 fucking sense.
