Will this get Willard welded into a cell somewhere?
Jail? I thought they were emptying jails. Must be making room for the real bad people ...(rolling eyes)
Were this thing treated as H1N1 was treated by Hussein there would be no hooha and no one would notice anything special other than this one has some nastier consequences for the normally at-risk-for-flu population though the death rate seems to be lower.And the economy would not have been destroyed to ‘level the playing field” with China so that we do not have an unfair advantage over them economically. So nice. So PC.
March on City Hall in a crowd with a petition of grievaces.
Force of law...
Cause I said so!
March on City Hall?
Now enforce it.
Imposing house arrest on free people while setting criminals free? LIEberals are scum of the earth.
Guess the Mormon `mishies’ will have to bother people on social media instead of ringing doorbells.
Now they’ll be telling us `gentiles’ that Mormon magic garmies protect against Coronavirus.
Don’t laugh, I was in Army flight school in 1971 when the mishies told me Mormon garmies would protect better than our Nomex flightsuits.
Oh no, I’m in deep crap now. I just snuck (Sneaked?) out and drove my car down 3300 Street and turned into Harmon’s at the Brickyard for a twelve pack of Budweiser.
Lucky me I made it home without being caught. Sure seemed like there are a lot of lawbreakers out there though. The store was really busy.
Mormons have been fleeing Salt Lake City for years.
This bitch would have never been voted into office with a Mormon majority.

The only reason you were not jailed is because SLC ends at 2100 South.
Welcome to the club comrades! This is basically what we have in Alaska with our 85 confirmed cases and 1 dead (who had underlying conditions).
This is horse crap.
If the local crossing guard declares a wholesale curfew, does that mean he can shoot to kill to enforce it?
Checked Worldometer. Utah has 2 deaths total so far. Woah....out of 3 million people.
Try to enforce it and people will just start coughing on LEOs. Then the LEOs will have to go into a 2 week self-quarantine. Pretty soon there won’t be anyone on the streets to enforce this BS.
What about Bill of rights; life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. What about 4th amendment and the standards of probable cause. Unless you have been tested there is no way to tell if you are infected. So the police have no probable cause to stop you. You can Quarantine an infected person but you cant quarantine everybody that you have no idea what they have ever been infected.
