“We were kids who answered our country’s call, we performed our duty, and returned to a world where protesters that hated us were the loudest. What they didn’t understand was some of us hated ourselves for coming home too because we survived and our brothers didn’t”

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A woman was arrested Sunday after leaving a designated protest area in Lummus Park in Miami Beach to sit on the sand while holding a sign that read “We are free,” authorities said.

Historian and Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson told “The Story” Friday that Democratic governors of states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Illinois are creating an “untenable situation” by being slow to lift lockdowns instituted to counter coronavirus.

“We don’t think more people will die because of the lockdown versus exposure to the virus,” Hanson said, mimicking the thought process of some Democratic governors, “We have to be absolutely certain that nobody gets the virus and dies.”

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee gave an update on reopening Washington’s economy and contact tracing during the coronavirus pandemic.

During his press conference the Democrat Governor warned citizens that those families with an infection will not be allowed outside of their homes. Someone else will have to do their shopping for them.

David J. Russo, the Greene County District Attorney, announced on May 7, 2020 that he will not prosecute small business owners for not complying with Governor Tom Wolf’s shutdown order.

According to a press release, Russo declared, “As of Monday, May 11, 2020 businesses in Greene County Pennsylvania who open their doors and conduct business will not be prosecuted as long as they limit the number of customers on the premises, maintain social distancing, require personal protective equipment for employees and customers, as well as follow CDC guidelines.”

There’s growing frustration among owners of vacation homes in South Lake Tahoe as they find they are unable to visit their property because of the California’s stay-at-home order.

The city cracked down on nonessential travel and the use of short-term rentals after seeing tourists flock in record numbers to the region after Gov. Gavin Newsom implemented the stay-at-home order in March. Now, owners of those homes are fighting the ban and the fine of $1,000 per day.

In late March, Britney Ruby Miller, co-owner of a small chain of steakhouse restaurants, confidently proclaimed that once the viral outbreak had subsided, her company planned to recall all its laid-off workers.

Now? Miller would be thrilled to restore, by year’s end, three-quarters of the roughly 600 workers her company had to let go.

“I’m being realistic,” she said. “Bringing back 75% of our staff would be incredible.”
