Remember this phrase, “Modern Day Breadlines”
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) has put immense pressure on businesses with her “abrupt” lockdown order – forcing “nonessential” businesses to close and creating what has been dubbed “modern breadlines” — with people waiting 2-4 hours to enter essential retailers, former GOP Senate candidate Elisa Martinez explained during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday.
Martinez, a former U.S. Senate candidate and Trump campaign surrogate, said that there has been a lot of downward pressure on the economy and people of New Mexico due to “ridiculous mandates” pushed by the governor, imposing some of the “strictest lockdowns” in the country. Martinez discussed the governor’s “abrupt” November 13 announcement, which put residents under another lockdown, closing businesses deemed nonessential.
The lockdown, which went into effect November 16, created a “huge rush to all of the stores,” which Martinez said was “very counterintuitive if the idea is to stop the in-person contact.”
The governor ultimately capped capacity in retail stores to 75 people, regardless of size.
“So now we’re experiencing 2-4 hour lines outside in the cold — some areas of the state it’s snowing, raining,” she said.
“I had an elderly woman contact me. She was waiting in line for two hours to get their meds — to get their, you know, essential medicine. So it’s making a public health emergency worse in my opinion for the people of New Mexico, especially leading up to Thanksgiving,” she said:
Across the state, the elderly & sick are in these lines. Don’t be so naive to think that government & @GovMLG is interested in your health & well being. Or “science” for that matter. If that were the case this wouldn’t be happening..
This was the scene before Thanksgiving, anyone think it’s gotten better since then?
Looks to me like they want you unemployed and dependent on them for the basic necessities.
From what I hear, our Moron of a Governor clamped down yet again here recently, him and that Commie Bitch over in Oregon both. You will never, ever, convince me that they are not working together behind the scenes.
I say from what I hear because I pretty much don’t give a fuck what that asshole has to say anymore and the Wifely Unit had to tell me about it.
She has resorted to ordering groceries on line and then driving up to the store, popping the trunk and having them load it all into the car.
She always went shopping once a week and this whole scenario has put a serious crimp in her style. She has been forced to buy two weeks worth of groceries at a time since April and she ain’t liking it one bit. She has no clue how to put it all away so a bunch of it just sits on the kitchen table until she needs it. I made the suggestion that I could probably find space to put it in and walked with a limp for two days for my trouble so I just let her be.
Even buying two weeks worth of groceries at at time, we basically ran out of stuff for lunch and dinner a day or two early.
It’s not that there isn’t anything to eat around here, it’s that all THE EASY stuff to eat got used up.
She is big on buying stuff that all she has to do is heat up.
This has caused me no end of frustration over the years but I have learned the hard way to keep my mouth shut in order to keep the peace around here.
I have tried to put stuff away out in the garage but it wound up getting froze when my little heater took a shit and that ruined all the canned goods.
Round and round we went over that. She finally tells me that storing Freeze Dried stuff would be OK with her.
I can tell you right now that she has never eaten Freeze Dried food for a week straight because if she had, she would know better.
This puts me in a place I don’t want to be.
I bought that little freezer and heard for three months that it was a waste of money and that we didn’t need it. Amazingly enough, she now fills that thing clear up every two weeks.
Funny how that worked out eh?
So seeing this bullshit going on down in New Mexico has gotten me nervous again.
I can just see that Rat Bastard Jay Inslee making plans as I type.
If I hear he plans on pulling that shit here then I will go balls out with my own counter measures.
I don’t give a fuck who don’t like it either.
