Since Michigan is in lockdown I decided to try and get the back deck painted once the weather allows. I stopped yesterday and bought two gallons for the job. Today Gov. Half-Whitmer has banned the sale of paint in Michigan.

Yes. I agree. What??? Why?

As long as people have to stay home they want to get things done they hadn't had the time to do before. I drive by homes the evening before trash day and it is obvious that people have just cleaned out the garage. People are trying to keep themselves occupied with projects. Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. support those projects that support the mental health in what we are going through. Gov. Half-Whitmer simply looks at the number of people who are going to these stores. The stores are limiting the number of people in the stores at any one time. If my toilet is broken or if you want to repaint the living room I'd like to get supplies. This is getting out of hand.

Thats even more absurd than the city of Los Angeles giving out $1000 fines for not wearing a face mask.

I have also seen articles that some locations have banned the sale of seeds, as they were deemed non-essential items.

That is just some dummy in a store. The USDA recognizes seeds as food.

But paint? Proves that the 1/4 wit governor is dumber than a 19 year-old stocker in Home Depot.

Most of the 19 year-old stockers I work with are not only dumb, they are lazy and incompetent.

Utah has allowed all the home improvement stores to remain open, but most of them have reduced the shopping hours to allow more time to clean and restock the store. AND with the reduced hours our store is seeing record sales nearly every day and we are greatly surpassing the sales goal most every day. The most popular items? Paint, light fixtures, garden EVERYTHING, appliances, and building materials. Apparently if work is closed and school is closed there are plenty of chores to do at home.

On a side note, most of us at work believe the virus was here in Utah (and probably California and Nevada) in late December and January due to the daily Chinese tourist buses that stop in our three states every day. The tourism from China didn't get stopped until January 31st, but many of us at work had been sick already. I had 8 of the top 9 most common symptoms, everything but a headache. About 20 coworkers were off the same week I missed, and many were sick prior and about 10 were sick 2 weeks after I was sick. We were all miserable but nothing deadly. My family had 1 person get a sore throat for a few days but no one else showed symptoms.

The more people in the area I talk to the more admit to being sick about the same time frame. Hopefully we are now immune as I am an essential worker and get to unload trucks and stock shelves every night. Haven't been sick since.

Nurseries and gardening centers are also shut down. She went on a rampage.

By executive decree fishing is prohibited in the state of Michigan.

So basically, the twit is banning anything that will enable people to provide their own food - no fishing, no garden seeds, no plants. What, does she want everyone to either be dependent on the grocery stores or starve?
