Gov. Inslee orders ‘stay at home’ for minimum of two weeks

In a statewide announcement this evening, Gov. Jay Inslee has ordered that all Washingtonians stay home for the next two weeks, except for crucial tasks such as grocery shopping, medical care, or those who work in essential businesses.

Inslee said the mandate is enforceable by law. “It’s time to hunker down in order to win this fight,” Inslee said in his broadcast.

The stay-at-home order will ban all gatherings of people for any reason, including religious gatherings, weddings, and funerals.

All non-essential businesses will be closed in 48 hours, and according to the Seattle Times, Washington will follow other states’, such as California’s, lead in allowing restaurants to still offer take-out and delivery. Pharmacies, food banks, convenience stores, banks, and grocery stores will remain open, among others. (Here’s a list of businesses that California deemed essential)

The mandate is for a minimum of two weeks.

Yup. I am spot on bro. It’s folks like me that play by the rules, pay my quarterly taxes, raised my daughter alone with ZERO government help, sobered up 18 years ago. It’s people like me that laid groundwork so you can sit on your lazy lame ass and spout your big fat mouth off. So STFU and move your wallet, because you ARE mumbling once again. OK millennial. Make sure your brains are loaded prior to shooting your mouth off.

with ZERO government help

So you’ve never used a roadway, gotten water from the faucet, enjoyed lasting peace, sent your kid to school and the many, many, many public amenities that you’ve no doubt enjoyed or used in your long, stable genius life?

Are you really the Unibomber, living in a shed in the middle of nowhere?

Ok Boomer!

Perhaps looking up the word “ideologue” would assist you? People here, for the most part, are liberals FIRST, then most else after that. Tolerance, inclusion and diversity are nice words though.

I am aware of what an ideologue is, and I am also aware it explains why you are so miserable.

I hope you can use the time afforded to you to get a new hobby. Maybe you can use this time to reconnect to the important people in your life. I’ve actually found myself growing closer to many of my friends and family as we take the time to care for each other.

No, people here for the most part are really good, kind, hard-working folks who care about their community, it’s just a very small group like yourself that are miserable, whiny, self-centered, hate-filled, and feel the need to troll a community blog in a desperate attempt to make themselves feel better.
