The question of who is essential and allowed to work to make money to pay their bills, and to earn a little extra perhaps to purchase some luxury items for their families, has been on the minds of small business owners for close to a year as Democrat Governors and Democrat City Councils have slammed shut the pathways to opportunities for hundreds of millions of American citizens, once had to work for a living, watching the left claim “emergency powers” over a curious “pandemic.”
The right to work is foundational to civil liberties.
“BREAKING: A judge just ruled that he could not find a connection between restaurant services and the spread of COVID. He has directed the county to allow businesses with restaurant services to operate their business safely and responsibly,” a supervisor from California posted on Twitter.
HERE IS HOW TO SAVE CHRISTMAS
We’ve received a lot of questions regarding other businesses potentially opening in San Diego County. For now, they remain closed, but the judge did give an indication for many other businesses. pic.twitter.com/CKAEvVk9Fb— Supervisor Jim Desmond (@jim_desmond) December 17, 2020
In San Diego, the Republican county supervisor who is constantly in the minority, according to his communications director, has been the champion of small business, especially of restaurant owners in his district. His office told me that while it is a Democrat strong area, many businesses were about to defy lockdown orders and open their business in the government’s rebellion.
Demond has been working on pushing through pro-business policies, but he is in the minority, so he gets voted down.
“It’s hard to tell people they have to abide by health and safety guidelines when you don’t even offer the opportunity to provide for the basics. Receiving a paycheck, having a roof over their head, or having food on their table are basics for life. Allow people to provide!” Desmond said.
Perhaps some Democrats will be willing to consider the economic policies between the parties now?
Desmond posted on Thursday:
“A wonderful statement from Judge Wohlfeil about restaurants: “These business establishments provide sustenance to and enliven the spirits of the community while providing employers and employees with means to put food on the table and secure shelter, clothing, medical care”< thisp> “Yes, today and this is not my victory this is a victory for small businesses who are willing to do the right thing to open,” Desmond said to local news.
According to his office, “We were looking at a lawsuit for two strip clubs where the judge said that they had the right to be open, that the County and the State could not close down strip clubs, as well as other which who serve food and restaurant service,”
“To me, it is pretty clear. The judge also said there was no nexus between other businesses and the spread of Covid. He called out churches, spas, fitnesses centers. He didn’t rule on those businesses, but he left the door open that other businesses could say there is no nexus,” Desmond said.
This is a victory for the working people in San Diego County. Eight days before Christmas employees will be able to get back to work and put food on their families table! pic.twitter.com/njwb2S3Hsc— Supervisor Jim Desmond (@jim_desmond) December 17, 2020
ICYMI: A huge victory for common sense last night! A judge ruled that he could not find a connection between restaurant services and the spread of COVID. SD County Restaurants are allowed to open for outdoor and indoor dining.
The judge mentioned the other businesses but could only rule on the case in front of him at the time. I will be following up and will bring more information on other cases when they become available.
