Maddock’s Law

Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.”

– Jeffersonian Meshawn Maddock, an organiser of Michigan’s anti-shutdown protest – which has the Guardian raiding the cliché cupboard.

 
Gretchen Whitmer’s decrees are so extreme that four sheriffs have accused the Governor of “overstepping her executive authority.” They have also attested (in writing) that they will not enforce them.

    Of course these protests were being reported on ABC this morning as somewhere between a KKK burning torch march and the Nuremberg Rally. People were even seen brandishing guns and wearing “Trump-themed clothing”.

    Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people.

    The word originally referred to the 40-day isolation period for newcomers to Venice during periodic outbreaks of plague in the 15th century.
    I wonder whether the Venetian economy could have survived through to the 16th century if those newcomers and the entire population of Venice had been locked down for successive 40-day periods until no further plague cases were reported in newcomers to the city.

    The Guardian video said “thousands descended on Michigan’s Capital, Lansing”.

    Some way to describe your fellow man.

    Listen to you! You sound like one of those libertarian open border loons.

    Don’t you believe in borders!?

    So the govt will require people to show proof they are healthy, Wuhan free.

    Also the new quarantine laws are open to be applied to any disease, for example if plods decided you looked to have any sort of health issue you are gone.

    Ask numbers if their guns were locked and loaded.

    And Australia. Lets not forget we dont have any form of gun freedom here either. I actually agree with the licensing and restrictions we have in Australia because generally the nut jobs are weeded out at Club level. Every applicant must be interviewed, and the people doing the interviews dont put up with shit, and can see through idiots in a heart beat. Not fool proof but better the government running it.

    As they say about Australians ‘ apathy is killing us, but who cares?’

    Enough on the guns though… we DO need civil disobedience. Ive had about as much of this shit I can take.

  11. Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people.

    No. Quarantine is for people who have no symptoms. So just about the opposite of what Maddock says.

    Isolation is when you restrict movement of sick people.

    This story about Ms Whitmer today illustrates her pretzel-like morals (if you can call them that):

    Michigan Gov. Whitmer: Abortion Is ‘Life Sustaining’ (17 Apr)

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) appeared on the Axe Files Podcast Thursday where she said it is “ridiculous” to include abortion among other elective procedures banned during the pandemic, because abortion, she said, is “life sustaining.”

    Her own words she is saying killing defenseless children in the womb is “life sustaining”. Amazing and horrifying.

    No. Quarantine is for people who have no symptoms.

    neither.

    Quarantine is for people who are of an unknown status. Once confirmed as either infected, or free of infection, they are moved on.

    That’s the horrible sound of a seared conscience – like fingernails screeching across a blackboard.

    Monty,
    We know you’re scared. But please stop lying.
    It’s conduct unbecoming a man.

    If this makes you feel safe then you’re delusional. What about the 200 Glocks illegally imported in 2019? What about the 20 containers of illegal arms that Border Security lost track of in 2017 – 2018?

    All the shit you mentioned above does is guarantee that most Australian’s aren’t armed with the exception of the maddest and baddest ones. FMD.

    The disarmament of ordinary Australians is directly and inexorably linked to their complete pussification.
