Illinois law the Governor used to shut down Illinois:
Pritzker’s first Executive Order was issued on March 9th. It expired on April 8th. The law doesn’t say he has the right to extend the 30 days.
He did it anyway and the compliant legislature said nothing.
He might extend it again, laws are immaterial.
Meanwhile small businesses are going out of business. We will be shocked at how many do not open when Pritzker waves his magic wand and says it’s okay.
Kids aren’t in school. How many never log in to on-line education? In Chicago it’s a third, locally we don’t know.
Churches are closed. The best place to be comforted doesn’t allow people in.
It is possible to isolate and protect those at the most risk. People who want to can wear masks. People can social-distance.
“Five northern Illinois mayors have asked Gov. JB Pritzker for the authority to reopen businesses next month, urging local control over restrictions and “common sense modifications” to a statewide stay-at-home order during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Where are Chris Koos and Tari Renner?
There is another reason to set people free. Look at the Normal Police Daily Log: http://www.normal.org/731/Daily-Log
Domestic violence calls are the most dangerous for police. This volume of calls is not normal. The situation is similar in Bloomington, evidently they quit posting their log. How many kids are being abused because of family stress? Refer back to the PATH director video, they have places available. https://blnnews.com/2020/04/14/facts-matter-socialists-another-jenn-fail/
Dial 211 to reach PATH. See their website here: https://www.pathcrisis.org/
Americans are capable of protecting themselves. Citizens are being destroyed while government employees are just fine. (Budgets are being wrecked however) If you want to stay locked up – fine. People want and need to be useful. Many want to work.
