Maine restaurant owners are going to have a lot of rotting food and idled staff on their hands, after their governor suddenly reversed a decision to allow them to re-open on June 1st. Having made the mistake of trusting their state governor, Janet Mills, the restaurants that were able to survive the lockdown spent scarce funds restocking their supplies and rehiring staff, in preparation for the promised reopening. But not so fast! WGME-TV, Portland reports: Restaurant owners in three Maine counties are reacting to news that they'll have to wait longer to reopen.

Dear Maine Voters. In regards to the dictatorial, grossly lawless and unconstitutional actions of that squat, rodent looking governor who is destroying your freedoms and livelihoods: You had a choice for governor during the last election and you chose this lifetime on the government teat communist to rule over you. Actions have consequences so if you now find yourselves regretting your actions at the polls, push back against this tyranny. To all you restaurant owners whining about her actions: Grow some cojones, band together, chip in to create a legal defense fund, and reopen every single one of your restaurants tomorrow. Let this lil' Hitleress Governor try to arrest all of you at once. Your lives depend on taking this action. Oh yeah, hope you learned your lesson and will never vote again for anyone who is a member of the democrat communist party. Does main have a recall route to remove this POS?

As Schlichter said, a vote for a "D" is a vote for Xi. More and more, I believe the chaos from Covid-19 and now the city riots go right back to Peking... (I prefer that)… in an attempt to defeat the best American President in my lifetime, President Trump, in November I will NEVER vote for a Democrat! Maine's 2nd Congressional District (northern Maine) is very conservative. Cumberland and York Counties (southern Maine) are full of out of staters and Massachusetts types.... all political liberals.

I feel for these business owners but as long as they keep electing democrats this will continue to happen. Democrats are disconnected from reality and have no feel for the people they govern. They've proven that time and time again.

Thank you Mr. Lipson for bringing light on this. She is horrible and has us still locked down in our homes and must wear masks out in public. I left CA fifteen years ago because I could no longer live there with the cost of living and the deteriorating state government. So I move to be near family and it’s worse here. I live in Cumberland county just outside of Portland where most businesses exist. Most of the county is democrat and scared to death of Mills. I would never ever vote democrat but she is throwing executive orders without consulting Republicans. Not enough of them to kick her out. Refusing opening of restaurants has been awful. So she is allowing them to sell their purchased food because she has interferred with their livelihood. People are ticked off but do they have the will to go to Augusta and fight her? Dems are stupid.

One thing that continues to puzzle me here at usually intelligent LCom. Somehow the notion that a state that has a larger number of Democrat voters than Republican voters can vote itself out of trouble. Seriously? But still the authoritarians will say that there was a choice for governor. How was that supposed to work for the Republicans when they were in the numeric minority? It comes off as uninformed posturing, ignorant of facts. Broad brush blaming of everyone in a state because the political party of one segment - in this case, the Republicans - do not have the numbers to overcome the other segment, which has the majority. We learn that Majority Rules when we are in elementary school. Some seem to fail to understand how that works in elections.

As the saying goes you get what you deserve from those you elect to high office. In this case to low office. You Mainers love her because she is as lame as you all are and will no doubt reelect her next time around. So in the mean time do not go outside stay home shelter in place wear a mask at all times use hand sanitizer ten times a day and shut the F up.

Maine had Republican Paul LePage as governor for eight years...successful yet very brash and put his foot in his mouth a lot which rubbed many the wrong way. He could not run again due to term limits, and the GOP candidate against Mills had no name recognition. Now word is that Mills won't run again, and LePage says he'll run against her or whoever is the challenger--which he can do now legally.

I agree with #13. Adding to what has already been said, we always have to consider the factor of voter fraud whenever a Democrat is elected. Mills may have been the voters' choice; she may also have been the designated Soros candidate who got a big boost from his team of election fixers. In any event, I wonder what would happen if the restaurants opened up anyway, with a great big Bronx cheer to the Dishonorable Janet Mills..

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter was arrested at a Manhattan protest on Saturday night, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday. Chiara de Blasio, 25, was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. after cops declared an unlawful assembly at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, the sources said. She had allegedly been blocking traffic on Broadway and was arrested after refusing to move, the source said. “That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops.

One of the more dire statistics coming out of the mountains of data we’ve accumulated about the novel Coronavirus is the fact that close to half of all the deaths in the United States from the disease took place in nursing homes. That figure applies to New York State, one of the hardest hit regions in the country. And as time has gone on, increasing attention has been paid to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order from March 25 stating that nursing homes could not refuse admission to patients, even if they tested positive for the virus.

We have gotten a nasty preview of it during the Coronavirus epidemic. We’ve experienced empty shelves, food shortages, limits on what you can buy, and also the attack on civil liberties, on freedom of assembly, on religious liberty, on privacy. So we’ve endured on a temporary basis what, under socialism, we are likely to endure on a permanent basis. Yet socialism has somehow entered the mainstream of political debate.

Chicago saw its deadliest Memorial Day weekend in years, even as people hunker down under Illinois's stay-at-home order to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Police said 10 people were shot and killed in the city, the highest total since 2015. At least 42 others were injured in shootings. NBC's local affiliate has a timeline of this weekend's shootings. Twelve people were shot and killed during Memorial Day weekend five years ago. Street pastor Donovan Price said the shootings are a result of some Chicago residents refusing to adapt to the new social distancing and quarantine guidelines.

The video was widely shared across the internet, but only for a short time. Why? Because YouTube took the video down after it had racked up five million views. Erickson and Massahi received a lot of pushback from their conclusions.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

Sunday on CNN’s “Situation Room,” former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the violence during the protests over the death of George Floyd was in part because President Donald Trump demonized peaceful protests, including former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the National Anthem. Rice said, “It’s really fundamentally a problem of our society still bearing the vestiges and the realities every day of racial disparities and prejudice, and that’s what needs to be addressed. We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos.
