I heard about this one over the weekend as my sister knows the team over at the Kent County Health Department pretty well and she's been working closely with them for over a year and a half now. Kent county Michigan and the area around is VERY conservative in general - I think they may have finally approved the sale of alcohol on Sunday in the past 3-4 years if that says anything. Despite that Grand Rapids is "Beer City USA" shockingly.

Here is a longer article from the Daily Beast (talks about other incidents around the country) or WaPo.

BTW - I think that WaPo characterizes Kent county incorrectly. Yes, they voted for Biden but there are actually a LOT reasonable conservatives there that wanted nothing to do with Trump and many believe in fighting COVID. Unfortunately I have several family members there that statement does not describe.

Hey, BOAZ says they need their freedumbs.

He says to MYOB.

Of course, that was after he said he wanted to take libruls out back and shoot us.

Hardly seems an honest paragon of MYOBitude, wouldnt you agree?

Trumphluffers pretty much insist, If they dont like us, they need to be fredumb enough to run a public servant off the road at 70mph, or take us out back and shoot us.

And BOAZ says we should MYOB.

Hey Republicans,
Why didn't your guns protect you from mask mandates?
Your guns are supposed to be the ultimate backstop against a tyrannical government.

What happened?

There are many types of anti vaxxers - minorities, hippies, naturalists, and trumpers.

Only ONE of those groups rips masks off others' faces and threatens walmart greeters with guns.

Mormon church to require masks in temples amid COVID surge

...The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Wednesday that masks will be required inside temples to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Church leaders said in a statement that masks will be required temporarily in an effort to keep temples open. The message was the latest in a series of statements from church leaders encouraging masking and vaccination efforts against COVID-19.

"As cases of COVID-19 increase in many areas, we want to do everything possible to allow temples to remain open," the church said in a statement. "Therefore, effective immediately, all temple patrons and workers are asked to wear face masks at all times while in the temple."

In Utah, where the church is based, a summer surge of the virus among unvaccinated residents has continued to grow while vaccination rates have slightly increased....

Bring it, losers. Libruls have guns too. But we're way better shots and not afraid to die.

This could result in a first--a leader of a county health department being issued a sidearm. If so, don't announce it publicly, let some fascist wanna-be find out the hard way. Have the weapon loaded with white phosphorus ammo. A few rounds will stop that F-250 being driven in their direction...
