Posted on 08/07/2020 4:06:33 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Governor Charlie Baker on Friday announced a series of steps intended to keep the coronavirus from resurging in the state, including a reduction in the limit on outdoor gatherings from 100 to 50 people, and the creation of a new task force to enforce public health directives in harder-hit communities.
Now we are seeing the virus escalate in certain communities around the Commonwealth and we have to put together a plan, working together, to stop it, Baker said during his regular State House briefing. This fight against COVID-19 is far from over.

And there you have it: MA’s version of Lockdown Larry Hogan (MD).
Seriously, Baker should open up, state-wide, to whichever stage of his opening plan is the widest without completely deregulating*, then call an emergency session of his legisl00ture to validate those regs. If they cannot validate them, open ‘er up all the way! People need alternatives, even if more COVID-risky, to venturing into the riot-torn cities.
*In Maryland, that would be our Phase III, as far as I know. But Lockdown Larry has chosen to keep us at Phase II, due to an increase in cases.
Charlie Baker and other piss-poor governors dont realize that, sometimes, doing nothing is the best thing to do when feeling the urge to get things done.

We are not that dumb. The real goal is to keep the economy from surging.
All of the economy numbers are surging and we good Trump haters can’t have that!
Exactly. And they want that bailout money to funnel to the Dems (Socialists).
Hence my tag line.
It’s not all aimed at Trump. DemonRATs have always wanted a lousy economy so that they can enslave more people with govt welfare.
here in Anchorage the media keeps talking about ‘more cases”
yeah - they just opened 5 more *free* testing sites.
what they *don’t say* or report is how many are or are *not* in the hospital
how many have died w/age and other, contributing factors.
must be an election coming up and they don’t any folks to use the walk in polling stations....
mail it in, you know, that way *they* can control the votes.
Gotta keep that iron grip on power or I just wouldn’t be a real GOVERNOR!
Does anybody else remember old gasoline and diesel farm engines that had governors to keep theing running “under control”?? (And you had to bypass them sometimes to get a job done.)
LOL! Good meme.
What a crock
Sigh. I am so discouraged by this...mostly because my wife is all onboard with this.
All I can do is shut my yap and let her wax on about how it is the right thing to do. This is a cause of distress for me, that she feels this way.
We have the same here and we’re in upstate NY. Talked to my manager’s boss the other day (my manager is a demonrat, HIS boss is a conservative from the private sector) and he said one person called in and said:
“My next door neighbor is back from California and I know they’re not quarantining; they’re Republican”
There have also been requests for the local Sheriff Deputies to FOLLOW CARS WITH OUT OF STATE LICENSE PLATES!
Demonrats never thought it could be a rental car or someone who lives in another state part of the year.
Here is what I consider when facing same issue with my wife
13 Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. 14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself, but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. 15 For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died. 16 So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil. 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. 19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.
Does your wife also agree that it is fair for businesses, churches, schools to be locked down while THOUSANDS are allowed to be in the streets for days on end SCREAMING and destroying property!! At this point law abiding citizens being locked down while THOUSANDS are in the streets is a MOOT POINT!! I have had ENOUGH of this BS!!
Stock market, employment and the polls headed in the wrong direction?
Charlie Baker didn’t say a word when the rioters tore apart Copley Place Mall. But when more than 10 people meet in a bar or restaurant, it is a crime against the State.
Charlie Baker, [Tall Deval] - corrupt, incompetent, unqualified.
I can’t discuss it with her. I love her. She is my wife. I am going to be with her for the rest of my life. I’m not leaving her.
I need to figure out how to navigate it. She is no leftist or even a liberal. It is a conundrum for me that I have to grapple with.
