When someone is THIS out of control, ridicule and derision are the required reactions.
As we have watched over the past week or so, Gavin Newsom has gone from his usual hyper-leftist wing-nut policy proposals to a realm of governance that possibly could only be described with the political terminology of, bat-crap lunacy.
We get that, with a new spike in COVID cases, a leader wants to appear as if they are in some measure of control. Newsom however feels as if he can wave his Harry Potter scepter and have new enforcement take place without repercussions. He also seems to think people are not monitoring his own actions. How else to describe a man who wants to impose restrictions on our private gatherings while he goes out and parties in the very fashion he has criminalized?
His latest head-shaking order is to impose a statewide curfew, banning people from going out in public from 10 pm to 5 am…because not only is the virus sentient and able to discern when a crowd is made of protestors or Donald Trump supporters, it is also nocturnal. Once faced with these deeply scientific measures the general public reacts in a couple of ways. One is to basically say, ‘’Yea, screw off, Gavin, we’re having the family feast!’’ The other is to mock the idiocy in proper and correct fashion.

Covid is ESPECIALLY contagious in the overnight hours. Anyone gathering after 10pm is assured to contract the disease.

Sometimes the mockery is self-evident. All you need to do is simply read what the governor has written.
Gov. @GavinNewsom just announced another month long forced shutdown of thousands of (what he deemed) non essential businesses, forcing millions of Californians to stay home without any means to support their families.

Gavin Newsom says that Entertainment Industry workers are "essential" and exempt from his insane lockdown orders…
If anything is to be deemed non-essential it should be Newsom and his amoral Hollywood friends because they are the most useless people ever.

For these reasons, fewer and fewer people are willing to give his demand any respect.

Oooooo, you mocked his hair, that is a harsh blow.
Gov. Gavin Newsom this morning:
“This weekend we start collecting all turkeys in excess of 10lbs from area grocers. This will limit group sizes in the name of safety.
We also will obtain records of prior sales for bird-tracing to locate addresses as potential gathering spots.” pic.twitter.com/9PfN2SivnT

What is revealing here is that there were so many who saw this entry from a satire site and actually felt it was a news item.

We have to admit to wanting one of these.
Basically, take heart, Californians. The rest of the nation supports your fight against this creeping (leaping) statism. We got your back.
