And so it Begins

Imagine if you were a corrupt politician that is not going to be a VP pick because you’re now so wildly unpopular from the power-trip you been on that you’ve single-handedly delivered this state’s votes to the re-election of Donald J. Trump, and you’ve also blown a $6.2B dollar hole in the budget, which will demand deep immediate cuts by September, what would be the last thing you would want to see?

Headline: Michiganians flock to Ohio to enjoy state’s reopening

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine [Republican] on Friday restarted parts of his state’s economy, with selected businesses opening for the first time since he issued a stay-at-home order on March 22 in response to the coronavirus emergency.

Michiganians like Hamade of Temperance flocked across the border for goods and services still not available in their own state. Dozens of vehicles bearing Michigan license plates were parked outside Toledo businesses that reopened Friday.

“Staying at home was getting depressing,” said Hamade, a 38-year-old construction worker who is laid off because of the coronavirus. “You gain weight. You can’t see your relatives. This is really nice.”

The next phase of Ohio’s plan kicks in May 21, when indoor restaurants, gyms and other businesses are scheduled to reopen.

Just look at all them Michigan tax dollars now flowing into Ohio. I’m not upset, they earned it.

So, when do the Recall Whitmer petitions begin circulating?

Big Gretch Blows a Kiss to the FSA

Color me not surprised

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has extended a statewide suspension on evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, her office announced Thursday night.

Under the executive order, which had been set to expire Friday and now is in force through June 11, tenants and mobile home owners can remain in their residences even if they are unable to pay their rent.

It relieves courts from some statutory restrictions so they can stay eviction-related proceedings until after the coronavirus outbreak has passed, the governor’s office said in a statement.

So, what’s the next goalpost waiting for Big Gretch to move?
