Have been following the news in Michigan about a 77 year old barber who was turned down for unemployment and had to reopen the shop to stay alive. Seems to be a stark contrast between how the Governor of Texas reacted to a lady who opened her hair salon, to feed her kids, and the Michigan governor trying to drive this man out of business. Texas governor and AG helped the lady in Texas and told the Judge to back off. Michigan governor seems determined to slam dunk this old guy, bring the heavy hand of the state down on him, and has not even entertained the thought of helping him at all.
I hope she doesn't start a war trying to destroy a 77 year barber just to make a point. I fear before this is over she will endanger the lives of both citizens and state law enforcement officers.

If you were referring to Mr. Manke of Owosso, please note that he drives a nicer car than you or I do, owns rental property, and by most local accounts does not need to cut hair to make ends meet. If Mr. Manke had provided rent payment relief for his tenants I expect it would be front page news in the local paper. It has been postulated, by folks closer to the Owosso scene than I am, that Karl Manke and his brother Tom Manke(who has a Facebook page called Friends and Community Shiawassee News and Views) are engaged in a politically infused scheme to raise money through Gofundme schemes.

Mr. Manke is doing his community a disservice with this charade. He, and his clients driving in to town from across Michigan, and his misguided supporters milling around without masks or maintaining social distance before returning home, comprise a living coronavirus culture/reservoir which increases the risk of another epidemic surge this summer as restrictions are lifted. Same comment applies to folks headed to Lansing this AM for another misguided inappropriately conducted demonstration if the behavior follows the earlier protests.

All Michigan citizens have been adversely impacted by the governor's executive order restrictions, many more so than others. Even with federally enhanced unemployment benefits many hourly workers have to pull in their belts to get by. Lots of folks feeling secondary impact; I've heard that our small town has 60% rental residences and those landlords will feel the pinch if rent is not paid. But the flip side is the cost of increased deaths and serious illness burdens on local healthcare institutions.

One thing seems to be true: Rigorous stay at home restrictions encouraged by Whitmer's actions appear to have flattened the curve in Michigan which has, IIRC , one tenth of the US population but is third in the number of coronavirus deaths. Flattening the curve means we continue to have significant numbers of new cases of sick infected people and people dying every day, just that the numbers are not increasing on successive days.

A lotta folks drive a nicer car than me, and made more money.

On the news tonight, I saw where the governor revoked his barberin license.

I think its admirable that he has bigger nuts than folks like you, and wants to earn his own way, and rejects gettin in the government tit.

You ain't gonna change my mind about a man standing up for his God given right to make a living.

When he got on national tv and said the governor wasn't his mama, he meant it.

This country needs more of him, and less of you. 😉

well you and mule might want to take a trip. Pick up doublebass on the way. The Michigan militia is looking for a few ______ in the head men. Bring along your Barbie dolls and ar15s and don't forget your rebel flag shirt and camo head band.. :tango_face_wink:. Like ive said before if this was a few Mexicans armed with Ars raising **** in texas youd want a couple billion dollars to wall them in and the entire army to respond. Funny how some of you get so conserned about a state you dislike so much. I guess in one way ill have to give them credit. At least they have the nuts to do something more then tap on there cell phone.

Aren't you the guy who complained about personal attacks in another thread?

tears are flowing. Why don't you report me again? No I think you've all been schooled on what is a personal attack and what wasn't and have been told the management is as sick of your crying as I am. Funny how its the same 3 or 4 people complaining every time. If you have something, something real, maybe a fact to argue with lets hear it. You don't and that's when you guys start. Its when your backed up against the wall and have been proven wrong. This one really amazes me. Same guys that are constantly bashing Michigan are now so concerned that they are hanging around the Michigan fourm. HUMMM. Looks like a couple are just looking for conflict. Don't see me on the texas forum or the New Hampshire forum.

so much hate for our elected officials. Don't understand why you would even want to live in our country if its that corrupt. Personaly I think this is God weeding out the stupid and the people who would risk the lives of others. Me? I say God bless the United States and God bless my president both who I would risk my life for in service if asked. No service is to great to show my appreciation for the PRIVILAGE of being an American. Its a great country with a small percentage of idiots and internet bad a$$es and theres fewer of those today then there was a year ago and by this time next year there will be fewer yet. Maybe God willing a few less even here! Maybe some of you could get together and start up something in memory of david koresh! Seems theres a bunch here that hate the government and think they have the bible all figured out.


Please don't do it in Michigan though. We already have our own bunch of cupcakes in camo. The militia. So who do you want to lead this country. Your not happy with how trump handled this. Your not happy about how the liberals want to handle this. Who is your MAN??? Same people bitch about everything and do nothing but bitch. By the way the first one to call this a personal attack sees himself in the mirror. Like I said before. I detest the militia and think there wrong but at least there actually doing something more then crying on the internet about getting picked on. Personal attack?? If the shoe fits------

.."Drives a better car than you or me"..? You part of that leftist 99% crowd? You think people with more money than you should all be destroyed, maybe split up their money between you and the rest of the left? I gotta put you on the ignore list. Just not worth my time to read that kind of stuff.

God bless him! I really don't understand the issue of a barber shop being open. You scared sheeple don't have to go in there!!! Have momma cut your hair or shave it off, go mullet, whatever your preference. Why do you care if someone gets their hair cut???? You are wearing your masks, sheltering at home and hiding under your blanky... Reduce your amount of fear for those who get their haircut...

Again Lloyd; Did you not notice how you started right out, insulting other posters, who had not personally attacked you? ..Just asking.

Anyway; why be so defensive about your home state? Can you bring yourself to the point where you can admit that you have a hard left, goofy governor?

There are some fine folks in Michigan and it is a beautiful place to hunt, fish and recreate, but you still have a goofy governor !

..But if you like those kind of governors...I sure would like to send you that tyrannical POS we have for a governor in NY State.

Nope. He's blind to his own faults . . . or just dishonest. One or the other.

Perhaps if we post a reminder each time he does it, that may help !

I can somewhat understand if on is truly insulted by another, that he may make a wisecrack in return, but to initiate such action ???
