COVID Madness – Montgomery County, Maryland, Provides Nonsensical Rules for Opening…

On a regular basis, long before the Wuhan virus surfaced, Maryland was always one of the most leftist and regulatory states in the nation.  So it doesn’t come as a big surprise to see officials in Montgomery County, Maryland, present some of the most nonsensical rules to reopen their economy.  [Quite Remarkable Video Announcement below]

Pictured: Montgomery County Residents Listen to County Official Marc Elrich

After an extensive study and review by local scientists and public officials, you can go to a barber shop and/or beauty salon and get your “hair styled”, as long as the ‘styling’ doesn’t involve the actual cutting of the hair.   Apparently, in phase-1 the COVID virus can identify when scissors are present and the virus will attack with increased severity.

You can go to a church, as long as the going to church doesn’t involve the actual going into a building that would be identified as a church.  Worship services can only be provided outdoors, because the virus lurks in the building…… unless the building contains vegetables and is called a supermarket, and then the virus cannot enter the premises.

According to the local scientists who have analyzed the risks, you can now wash your car; however, it is only safe to wash the outside of the car.  If you attempt to clean the inside of your vehicle the virus will hunt you.  Interior car cleaning is forbidden.  No actual word on how you get your vehicle to a car wash without being inside it… but minor details are still a work in progress and will likely be addressed in phase-2.

You are now permitted to open retail businesses, but you cannot sell things from inside retail businesses.  Apparently the Maryland officials have discovered the virus is building and content specific. Therefore retail sales can safely happen at the curbside of the building; but patrons are forbidden from entering the establishment.

Purchasing a new pair of pants becomes less dangerous when the pants are not in a building.  Unless, duh, the building sells vegetables and pants, and then the virus doesn’t attack the pant purchaser because they are protected by the surrounding vegetables.

You are allowed to open and attend daycare and summer camps, as long as the camps remain outside.  During phase-1 of the opening, if a spring and/or summer storm starts, it is less dangerous to run around dodging lightning strikes outside – than if you were to enter a building or cabin where the virus is waiting to attack.

Given the hair salon scissor restrictions, in combination with rules for summer camps, running with construction scissors outside while dodging lightning is another undefined detail.  However, if you happen to be picking vegetables, you are immune from being attacked.  Vegetable picking inside or outside with scissors is therefore allowed.

Restaurants are allowed to open, but again all actual eating of food must take place outdoors.  To accommodate this safe dining approach, restaurants are encouraged to put all their tables in the street.

The Montgomery County dept. of transportation is organizing road closures to assist with the roadway dining.  So you might not be able to drive to where the restaurants are, but the outdoor dining experience should justify hiking to your table for the asphalt ambience.

Now, right about this point, if you are a person of reasonable constitution, you’re probably thinking this is so ridiculous it cannot really be what the Montgomery County plan is; all I can say is please watch the two short videos below.

Montgomery County executive Mark Elrich was visibly frustrated and perplexed that local citizens did not appreciate the wisdom of the panel of COVID compliance scientists that put together the reopening plan.  His announcement was a little less than well received.

The local news outlet did their best to help make sense of the madness; but judging by the looks on their faces, well…. I digress.

      So those black lights the barber keeps the tools of the trade under are just for show. Kind of sciency looking, but with no real effect on microbes.

      We’ll just have to trust the Party of Science on this one.

      I guess when the dominant political class has spent the last forty years using the education system to wipe out any belief in common sense, just telling the people to go about their business and use their best judgement could be a scary concept for them. Clearly, micromanagement is in order.

        My barber still uses Barbacide and Clippercide. Don’t know why that would be a problem…Barbacide (that tall glass tank of Blue liquid) is an EPA approved germicide…Isopropyl alcohol, Dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride and Sodium Nitrite (a preservative) are the ingredients according to their MSDS.

        Good to go as far as I’m concerned…although some snowflakes wouldn’t be happy if they didn’t sanitise the place with a flamethrower and neutron radiation…

            Even up here in a small city, just outside Vancouver B.C. our local towns weekly paper, regularly has an anti PDJT bias.

            This weeks copy, has the entire front page dedicated to a picture of an E.R. in an Italian hospital. That shadows the horror and chaos that the virus can cause.

            Of course this is printed to scare our towns predominantly senior community.

            The enemy is sick, and it’s evil. Many folks are pushing back, and are saying F**k it.

            However teachers, and other government workers are all in leftist voters, and are getting paid well all through this mess. It is in their interests to keep the drama going.

            Our town has had virtually no cases of “ the virus” and the Province has been barely affected at all, yet the Premier an ultra leftist, just announced another 14 days of a State of Emergency.

    It is clear why past politicians never tried to do something like this in response to a wide spread illness, like the flu, or polo, or any other diseases… the people back then would have ignored them. People weren’t as stupid and sheep like as we seem to be these days.

    When I read in the Bible that right would be called wrong, I often wondered how could that ever truly become true, yet we see it all the time now, and hear the lies from the propagandist media refuting the direct words of whomever they are targeting, twisting the meaning on it’s ear, and yet the media are far too often believed.

    I just don’t understand this total disconnect with reality.

    This is all a slow walk of the economy until November 3rd. It’s to give the appearence of taking the boot of people’s neck while not really taking the boot off.

          I went to get my teeth cleaned today. They texted me and said, “wait in your car and let us know when you’re here.” I did so. They replied, “we are sanitizing your chair right now. we’ll text you when you can come in.” Then when I got the text, I had to have my temp scanned and I got two shots of hand sanitizer. After the cleaning, the dentist comes over and does small talk – he’s a good guy. Said he had to have all new air filtration put in, and some other stuff just to re-open, but he had money put aside for a rainy day so he was ok to go forward with it.

          How on earth will other small establishments handle all of the extra precautions they must have in order to reopen? Here in Washington State, Jay Inslee, our governor, is barely getting phase one going. He tried a restaurant fiasco .. five people per table, each five feet apart?? .. and people pushed back HARD, so he abandoned that idea.

          But waiting on the phone to his office, I heard, “if you see your neighbors doing something wrong, dont call 911, call this other number. And if you see businesses doing something wrong, dont call 911.. call this other different number.” He wants to pit everyone against each other – and the public who doesn’t call his office to complain will never know. Just unbelievable stuff going on everywhere with blue state governor’s.

          Cheers Sharon,

          I am north of sixty, and still have a decent head of curly now very gray hair.

          Our barbers have been shuttered since March and the mop had gotten so long, as to look slovenly. Well they opened last week, an appointment is required, one person in a store at a time. Barber and client must be masked, I will simply not conform to the idiocy.

          No really short cuts, or beard trimming is allowed.

          An $18.00 cut is now $22.00.

          My wife hacked at it yesterday, at my stage of the games it’s not that important that the hair looks decent. It’s a shame for the barbers etc, and a very sad indictment of our society.

          But we will adapt, hopefully if my instincts are correct a significant yet subtle push back is coming.

          On a personal note, the $22.00 plus tip, is still in my back pocket. 😉 and it will be spent at a local restaurant that does take out only Halibut and Chips for $9.95 plus tax.

          So the wife’s efforts will have paid for our “ fish on Friday “ dinner tonight.

      “Science” is a social status marker. It’s code for not religious. It’s code for an adherent to secular leftist dogma.

      If you want to learn the meaning of futility, try debating the actual science of any their required beliefs. Try debating the absurdity that there’s more than two genders. You’ll be denounced as a bigot, and anti-science to boot. You will, of course, never hear a hint of what this supposed science is.

      Dennis Prager claimed he encountered a young man who would shout “science!” instead of “God Bless You” when someone sneezed.

      This is very old nonsense. Marx called all his wacky theories “scientific”. Darwinism has justified endless evil. Darwin begat eugenics, which begat the Holocaust. American progressives of the early 20th Century were hot for eugenics. Margaret Sanger created Planned Parenthood to advance eugenics, which was science, don’t you know?

      Now? Our progressives never heard of eugenics. But the environmental movement is fundamentally a crusade to radically reduce world population. Michael Moore, who’s getting old and impatient, just released his Planet of the Humans film. He admits the obvious: wind and solar power are unscientific nonsense. The Left’s true goal remains to massively reduce the world population, in order to save the environment.

    A few years back, we had a chance to get out, but opted to stay and fight.
    The moon battery you witnessed is generational now , and it’s very real.
    TDS is almost overpowering; when you meet new people you must size them up before you decide to engage with them in just normal conversation, let alone any talk about politics.
    The good news is all the President’s supporters are well aware of the situation, and when you meet one there is a feeling of relief and a hearty laugh, knowing you have another ally.
    One more thing; listen to the dialect of the protesters, and you should be able to discern who is hardest hit in this region because of the DC influenced politics. They’re the ones not getting a full, if any, paycheck and they’re the ones who do not take advantage of snap and ebt cards, rent supplements, etc.
    And there was very few of them present because they are the minority now, good people who must work extra hard to support Erlichs constituents through increased taxes, and boy howdy they get real creative when it comes to new taxes(rain, flush, eg.,) .

      Man, that was so weird. Never seen anything like that before. The vid. below was 2 young “reporters ” from San Diego talking about hashtags- even tho the front YT picture showed the “correct” vid of the guy in MD. making the announcement.

      The correct vid. is back now. Bizarre.

    Wish some would wake up, this is full-blown Communism, collectively or dictatorially by emergency decrees, yes collectively or by dictates making decisions on what can do like cutting my hair. It is essential to have liquor stores open and sell lottery tickets, but churches closed. The government knows better than individuals. Maybe we should lower the speed limit to 5 mph to save lives. It should be illegal to take risks. No driving while it is snowing, Full blown communism.
    Zero people in Maryland under 9 years old have died from Covid-19 and a single person 10-19, https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/ , so K-12 school age risk is 00.00% but all schools closed, more kids killed crossing the street than Covid-19, so guess by same logic should ban all cars or ban any kids from walking outside to save lives. Working except for or by gov approval is illegal. Mao and Po Pot would be so proud.

    Government “solutions” usually make things worse. The current emperical estimate is that lockdowns and shelter in place orders besides causing the biggest unemployment since Great Depression, with cause 7x the number of deaths in terms of life years than direct Covid-19 deaths (not otherwise Covid-19 lives saved which there is little evidence) by nonessential medical things cancelled like cancer diagnostics, late pacemakers to put in, higher suicide rates. Communism kills every time despite the bs “saving lives” rhetoric.

      Food for thought. Paraphrasing a couple of interesting comments I saw on the internet recently: 1) Tyranny is capricious. 2) If you can get the people to believe absurdly false ideas, that’s real power.

    @2:41 in the first video: “So, for the people that are actually interested…”

    Pretty much says everything you need to know. “These rules are nonnegotiable… but, in any case, protesting is a non-essential activity… so… deal with it.”

    The truth of the matter is hiding in plain sight for all to see: Voting takes place indoors. It’s called “conditioning”.

    Definition: “Conditioning” n. A process of behavior modification by which a subject comes to associate a desired behavior with a previously unrelated stimulus.

    The globalist’s China virus scam was set up from the beginning to, among other things, institute and enforce “conditioning” through “protective” lockdowns. That conditioning is almost complete in the six blue states where practiced. By the time lockdowns are lifted in these states, mentally weary voters will have been “conditioned” to believe that by voting at their local – indoor – polling place they have a very good chance of dying. Thus the need for mail-in ballots.

    The stakes in November are the highest they have ever been. It is not complicated to see flow of this. Don’t overthink it. Follow the money.

      I am sooo glad Trump left this in the hands of the State Govs. It’s the ONLY thing that may finally highlight the differences between Dems and Repubs. ( or in MD.’s case Repubs and RINOs) for many people.

      Funny how even that leftist dogma gets overruled by the virus. That we’re two months into this insanity and numerous courts haven’t invalidated all of these obvious violations of the constitution is bewildering.

    The way these governors are acting, they seem to have no fear of reprisals at the voting booth…if we still have voting booths by Nov . Also the testing and tracing will not go away after Nov. They want lockdown stuff to be permanent.

    I work in MoCo, as it is called here (fortunately don’t live there). It is about as bad there as this video makes it look. Leftist kooks are everywhere in downtown silver spring, trying to get passerbys to sign petitions for every horrible thing. Chevy Chase and Bethesda are filled with very rich status seeking parasites; the type that would do anything for more money and power, all ego. Potomac is one of the habitat reserves of the swamp, across the river in McLean is another. Also the most expensive houses in the state, by a wide margin. To the south east end is Langley Park, and despite the name, you’d swear you were in central America; perhaps 1/3rd illegal here, maybe higher.

    If you have no reason to come to this forsaken county, don’t.

      Thanks for the local information. I really appreciate learning about the specific counties within your States.

      A Commercial Realtor/ investor I know quite well, just yesterday said to me that wait till next year. Local government tax revenues here in British Columbia will tank.

      I live 5 mins from the Washington State border, and the U.S./Can border has been closed to non essential traffic for a couple of months now. Our family alone spends several thousand a year in Washington State on gas alone.

      Northern Wa State must surely be challenged too. Of course Seattle and Olympia do not care and they control who is voted in. They will always vote Dem.

      This cannot end well.

      God bless PDJT
