Groot Says What Now?
- That means Chicago has to move slow to prevent the virus from spreading and more lives being lost, Lightfoot said. She emphasized Thursday she doesn’t care if nearby cities like Evanston or bordering states like Wisconsin are opening up, saying all of Chicago’s reopening decisions would be made using data and science to protect people.
“When I find myself in the circumstance of calling the survivors of people who have died, I don’t want their deaths to be in vain because we are so fixated on a moment of pleasure that can impact our city for a lifetime,” Lightfoot said. “And, yeah, I will say the same thing that I tell my 12-year-old: I don’t care what other people do. You’re my kid.
Listen close and listen well:
- You are a flunky hired by the voters on a temporary basis to oversee the day-to-day functions of government - picking up the trash, clearing out the garbage, making sure the streets are swept, trees are trimmed, sewers are draining, snow gets plowed, fires get put out, cops behave. You designate people to run these departments on our behalf - they report to you (the buck stopping at your desk and all that). If you don't do it, we vote for someone else who will. "Consent of the governed" is an important phrase you might want to learn.
You are not our ruler.
You are not our master.
We are not twelve, you are not our mother and we are rapidly tiring of your bullshit.
The CDC, Fauci and the science has now said masks are hardly necessary and shutdowns are deadly, economically and socially. Other states, entire other countries, are opening up and there is no spike or secondary infections of any significance. Do the correct thing and open up the city so everyone can get back to work.
