People are saying that getting tested can make you gay, black and communist. Don't get tested, if you get sick, just drink some bleach and go to church to be saved.

Don't worry. When they die, Trump/GOP will be sure to say they were actually killed by windmills or Obama.

Whitmer has a 72% approval rating.

Approval ratings are a poll taking joke.

If any of you are actually interested in what is going on with Michigan as it pertains to all of this, don't go with the "Salon" piece tied to this thread. Go to Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, Macomb Daily, Oakland Press, Flint Journal....

So much ignorance on this thread.

"Approval ratings are a poll taking joke."

When the ratings are close that is a possibility but when a Gov. has a 72% approval rating your comment is just stupid.

Speaking frankly most here are behind her. There is however a Trumpist sized portion that would never be behind her - running 30-35 percent. So I don't think the pole is wrong. People are tired of the lock down though.

It's amazing how ignorant some people are. I had a brief debate with a coworker yesterday. He was going on about "I can't believe you support them taking our constitutional rights..." Then I asked him - what rights are you talking about?

"Well she wouldn't let us go boating." Not a right. It is a privilege the state gives you and the state regulates it.
"I can't drive up north for the weekend" Driving is definitely a heavily regulated privilege. State can regulate your ability to drive as they see fit. Now if you want to walk - go for it. And that is now lifted. But no they don't want you spreading it up north. They ask you to go and stay and quarantine when you get there.
"Well would you be for the government making a vaccine mandatory?" Absolutely. I have zero problem with that seeing what this disease does.
"Well people didn't die for this country to be forced to get a vaccine." Why don't you ask any member of the armed forces about the vaccinations they get? No questions asked - you are getting them. Heck in the first Gulf War a lot of them were considered experimental still.
