Letter to the editor: The COVID-19 lockdown is not about your health

OPINION

When the State tells you it’s safe to go to Home Depot to buy a sponge but dangerous to go and buy a flower, it’s not about your health.

When the State shuts down millions of private businesses but doesn’t lay off a single government employee, it’s not about your health.

When the State prevents you from buying cucumber seeds because it’s dangerous but allows in-person lottery ticket sales, it’s not about your health.

When the State tells you it’s dangerous to play golf alone, fish alone, or be in a motor boat alone, but the Governor can get stage make-up and haircuts for 5 TV appearances a week, it’s not about your health.

When the state puts you IN a jail cell for walking in a park with your child because it’s too dangerous but lets criminals OUT of jail for their health–It’s not about YOUR health!

When the state tells you it’s too dangerous to get treated by a doctor of chiropractic or get physical therapy treatments yet deems a liquor store essential–It’s not about your health!

When the State lets you go to the grocery or hardware store but is demanding mail-in voting, it’s not about your health.

WAKE UP, PEOPLE — If you think this is all about your health, you’re mistaken!
