This was a sticky at the top of the page just now and I thought everyone should see it. I'm going to paste it into my sig line.
Since we know that the Blob of the Orange Death is guaranteeing a massive undercount, particularly of people of color and immigrants, could Biden under the constitution continue the census in '21, despite Trump's census bureau issuing some kind of report by the end of this year? If so, could red states prevent this by suing the federal government for keeping them from their duty to redistrict their states?
DES PLAINES, IL Amid reports of upwards of 150 people gathering without masks at a series of religious activities at the Methodist Campground on East Algonquin Road, the City of Des Plaines is demanding the group follow state COVID-19 mandates. Members of The Last Reformation have been holding "Big Tent Revival" events all week with plans to continue through Sunday.
Following an emergency meeting Tuesday night, Mayor Matthew Bogusz signed a revised and updated emergency declaration that according to Alderman Andrew Goczkowski, puts "Des Plaines' face covering and social distancing requirements a step ahead of Gov. J.B. Pritzker's executive order," which includes a broad exemption for the free exercise of religion. The new Des Plaines' declaration is intended to treat all public gatherings equally, according to Goczkowski, whether they are religious in nature or not.
"Failure to do so will result in a citation and fine," Goczkowski said. "Failure to comply after a citation may result in further action." According to the city, the fine is $750 for each violation, and it would mount each day.
Torben Sondergaard, organizer of the "Big Tent Revival" events, took to social media Wednesday requesting assistance from President Donald Trump. He stated his group will continue congregating and that an "order is not a law."
Good for Des Plaines but a great big hole in Pritzger's mask and distancing orders for the rest of us. And now the revival organizer is dragging the Mask of the Orange Death into it.
