The only metric that matters is how crowded are the hospitals.
Lockdown was NEVER about stopping infections. It was only about slowing the rate at which the virus spreads through the entire population so as not to overwhelm hospitals.
If things reopen and cases increase, it doesn’t matter. It’s irrelevant. The only thing that matters is whether the hospitals are overwhelmed or not.
EVERYBODY is going to get this virus, sooner or later.
yup, Racine stayed curled up in the fetal position... where i live near by, the Village Administrator said people can decide for themselves. we are about 50% lefty though, soit will be interesting. I do hope to be able to call him "1 term tony"... he seems to be a natural at being the Butt of all Jokes...
It has been unsettling to see the number of "conservatives" on this site justifying unilateral orders from state and local officials. "Recommendations"? No problem. Threaten citizens with jail (especially while releasing convicted criminals)?
Do all these states actually give these executives that much power? If so, perhaps we should rethink those laws. I can wrap my head around mandatory quarantine for those diagnosed with the virus. To tell completely healthy citizens they must "stay home" under penalty of jail? Um, NO.
If laws were written that allows this, they need to be changed.
Hopefully this is the next governor of Wisconsin.
He should have opened the State and closed the Illinois border. Now all the sickly FISH and Fishtab's will be heading North. The pressure to re-open the State was from the Wisconsin Tavern League, a loud and powerful voice in Wisconsin. Closed bars and no Memorial Day money? Can't have that! Make sure you try those water parks that half the people in there have just P***** all that beer in.
How he “won” the election had a good amount of drama to it. As the final boxes of ballots were being counted, the split was within 30(?) votes as I recall. When all of a sudden someone “found” several boxes full of ballots in the trunk of someone’s car, and all of these ballots were for Wimpy. Both of my nephews who still live in Wisconsin were spitting bullets they were so mad.
Just a little drama.

Wisconsin did not give this much power to the governor. He took it. Thus the States Supreme Court ruling.
Boxes from the Milwaukee area of course.
who is that?
Rebecca Kleefisch. Lt Gov under Scott Walker. Solid conservative. She will destroy Evers in an election.
... and look good doing it!
I think we'll see a temporary upswing in infection rates, with everyone going out. I'm not so eager to join the crowd just yet, I'll go out but keep my distance.
Casinos here in Arizona making big announcements on tv they're re-opening tomorrow, I guarantee there will be a line of people just waiting to hand over whatever is left of their stimulus money. Suckahs.
I was at my buddies bar tonight, they needed a little help it was so busy. I can tell you no ****s were given in regards to social distancing. Hope it works out ok.
there might be a little bump in infections, but i don't believe any increase in death. think about where so many of the deaths came from, nursing homes, where residents are locked in without visitors.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,,,,,Mr. Dicktatorhead is angry that 4 people made that decision to open the State back up. Why, the nerve of those 4 people! They're just Supreme Court Judges and actually had the gall to show the self appointed Mr. Dicktatorhead the purpose of checks and balances.
There will absolutely be more cases if only because we are only just starting to ramp up testing in much of the state. Of course this will be the blame but the reality is there has been very little testing done in much of the state so far.
Fascinated to see the results from some of my family in the Madison area getting antibody testing relatively soon, there was a bug that went through most of us in February that seems an awful lot like COVID, and that was before we all spent a week together down south.
By your thread title I thought Trump resigned
..."The suit was filed specifically against state Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm and other health officials, who made the decision in mid-April to extend the state's 'Safer at Home' emergency order"...
I'm no lawyer, but the targeting of the DHS specifically would seem to leave open challenges that the order would be lawful if initiated by other departments or agencies.
Plus wasn't there specific mention in the decision about "unelected officials" like Palm not having the power to institute the restrictions? Well, that would imply that elected officials might have that power, right?
"Rule-making exists precisely to ensure that kind of controlling, subjective judgement asserted by one unelected official, Palm, is not imposed in Wisconsin," Roggensack, part of the court's 5-2 conservative majority, wrote.
