Yeah, trying to earn a living is a crime against the State. These Judges think they are gods.

There is nothing about “essential” or “non-essential” businesses in Law.

A governor's edict to close personally selected businesses is not legal.

Each day the Judge has a stirring song to open his courtroom. Song

Walmarts, Krogers, and other restaurants served food and drink indoors without fines - this is tyranny.

The prosecution only asked the judge to sentence her to 10 days in jail and a $500 fine. The Judge said he wanted to make an example of her for ignoring the law. Ms Hanson, the business owner, probably made a mistake representing herself. When it comes to anything COVID related, many judges are legislating from the bench, exceeding their authority. For the most part, these judges get away with it.

People need jobs to support their families and themselves. So tired of this fake pandemic bullshit.

The Judge’s statement provides a full magazine of ammo for an appeal.

Maybe that was the intent.

Kinda reminds you of the ancient “gods” before them:

Do you indeed decree what is right, you gods? Do you judge the children of man uprightly? No, in your hearts you devise wrongs; your hands deal out violence on earth. —Psalm 58

[[A governor’s edict to close personally selected businesses is not legal.]]

And yet they get away with it- says a lot about what kind of country we’ve become- Marxist dictates- and judges back them up on it-

The song on my screen is “Die Fahne Hoch” or ‘Raise The Flag” aka “Horst Wessel Lied” or The Nazi Party Song. Is THIS the song you say the judge plays in his courtroom on a daily basis or were you only joking?

“You just wanted to make money during a global pandemic”.

Pfizer, Moderna, Quest Diagnostics and Kimberly-Clark (face masks) should also be in the dock.

Not in Minnesota. ALL of the restaurants were closed.
