our Governor Who Would Be King decreed that we Minnesotans have been granted the privilege of dining outdoors at our favorite restaurant. That's Outdoors. In Minnesota. In the middle of December. Where yesterday's morning temperature was a balmy 7 degrees F. Sigh.
Anyone with a small amount of common sense can see that even if the tents for dining that were used last summer were set up again and even if heaters were used, we would be hard pressed to drink a cup of coffee before it iced over.
On the bright side, there are some here in my state who have had enough. Yesterday a list of small business owners was published. Those business owners are opening for business in defiance of the proclamations from on high. They are located throughout our state. They are not merely rebellious. They are fighting for their lives, for their businesses they have worked so hard to build, to pay their employees, to feed their families, to take care of themselves without government handouts.
Of course the bureaucrats can't have that. We are supposed to simply comply and never question the decisions of our betters. A couple of liquor licenses have already been pulled. Some fines have been handed out. But even so, more small business owners are signing on every day.
Those who have grown a spine and have made the decision to open their businesses in spite of ridiculous government mandates, have my admiration and support.
Who says you can't fight City Hall!
