GEE I can't see this going wrong and causing a panic and riots in the streets. You have to remember that one of the main industries is a college. Think liberal hyper educated idiots flooding the area.

Great idea! Send 1/4 of the state into the DTs and they won't have to worry about the virus.

From the article: "There are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in central Illinois as of Thursday evening." (Emphasis added.)

Being prepared for the worst, maybe, but it seems a bit over-the-top, esp. if the citizens (and students) are moving towards more social isolation.

If I lived there, my hackles would be up. 100% of that Executive Order is unconstitutional, and I would not comply with one d**n bit of it. Taking private property and claiming title to It? Uh Uh, that would start a shooting war, methinks. I think they would run short on enforcers, in short order, either through attrition or just refusal to be a target. Do you think people would work all their life to gain something, just to have a tin-pot would-be Stalin take it with a whim???

Actually, the question is whether a lowly Mayor can do this.

Under a declared State of Emergency, both POTUS and Governors can do this.

Will be challenged later since this is WAAAAY over the top, and very difficult to tie gas cans to public safety concerns.

But be prepared to see similar measures everywhere.

Plus, it's a libtards dream to have to this kind of power.

How do you feel about the land, livestock, homes and businesses being taken away from CITIZENS living on the American side of the border to build the wall?

You keep Fred from buying another 45 and he can probably live with that for a few months. You ban him from buying another bottle of Scotch and you have a problem!

Likewise, do they actually want 50% of the women in that community without their wine?

Just pretend its Feb 1942 and you look Japanese (today that would be you sneezed, coughed or otherwise look like you have the flu) and the progressive demonrats are in charge.

You will find yourself locked up with like one bag of stuff, a weaponless BOB if you are lucky - no scissors, nail file, lighter, meds.... TSA compliant.

Rights? Ya tell that to the guys with jack boots and a gun at o'dark thirty.
