Lamont is out of his mind. How is another 5-month extension justified, or even conceivable? Outrageous. I sent the below message today.
COVID LOCKDOWN UNTIL FEBRUARY 9? ARE YOU AN IDIOT?
(1) If a "state of emergency" needs to exist for almost a year, you obviously are doing something wrong. And yet you want more of the same? Are you insane?
(2) To the extent that you have any legitimate role in the virus situation, your obligation is BOTH to address the virus AND keep the state fully open and functioning. You and we do not have the luxury of waiting for some arbitrary virus termination to resume normal living and a normal economy.
(3) Your authority in this matter is morally and practically at an end. You cannot terminate our rights indefinitely. Furthermore, people are dying because of your misjudgment. You have moved beyond mere misfeasance into the realm of malfeasance.
Figure it out Ned. Your program is not working. Your credibility is gone. It's past time to open the state.
