Judge issues cease-and-desist order to Hobby Lobby in Dallas County, TX

The good judge who issued this order is Clay Jenkins. From his Twitter bio: “Chief Elected Official of Dallas County. 2nd Largest County in the Lone Star State. Known in TX as the County Judge. Home to 2.6 million.”

He ordered a Hobby Lobby store closed. Read the Order here.

Apparently there’s some rhyme and reason as to what businesses local governments determine are “essential.”

Liquor stores are open. Some liquor stores also sell food so that’s why they are deemed “essential.”

Home Depots are open because they sell supplies like plexiglass, which businesses in my town have had to install at checkout counters.

Wouldn’t Hobby Lobby be deemed essential since they sell fabric that people may need to make masks?

If the liquor stores, Home Depots and Wal-Marts can implement healthy/safe practices to be open, then why can’t Hobby Lobby? The judge explained (in some tweet that I can’t find now) that it’s about making sure less people get sick so they don’t get overrun at hospitals (basically bed capacity). The local governments are shutting down businesses based on predictions and models.

Our economy is in for a world of HURT in about a couple more weeks..

There is zero justification for shutting down any business during this non-crisis. A world of hurt indeed. Right now people think they are on vacation. They don’t realize for many of them it’s a permanent vacation. When they start losing everything they own they’ll get angry but it will be too late. It’s probably already too late

I was told by a proprietor of a liquor store here that they are not allowed to sell any thing with out alcohol in it, but need a separate licence for beer our wine with lower content. There really is no logic in their reasoning, or its twisted logic. Any how, every thing they do makes it more evident this is more a power grab and exercise in mindless obedience, than any real pandemic. They have literally gone ‘Mad’ with power and authoritarianism. If there truly were as many lunatics in this nation wanting to commit mass shootings, what they… Read more »

Fabric stores are allowed to stay open in cities under “shelter-in-place” order because supplying fabric to sew into face masks or bandanas (which the CDC now suggests for everyone when we go outside) is considered an “essential service.”

As an example, Jo-Ann Fabrics in California is open, though with reduced hours:

I have a few suggestions for the CDC but they are unprintable

At a Home Despot here in Ca. not more than 20 minutes from where I live, a relative said cops were hanging outside the Home Depot looking at what people purchased. If it was deemed non essential by the cops then the people were being slapped with $400.00 tickets. How’s that for the whim of the state? Everything is arbitrary. Our local Health officials have deemed yard care non essential. That means the gardeners who never step foot in your house- you know mow and blow cannot work unless it is because of a ” sanitary or hazardess” issue. What… Read more »

OMG Lana…just saw this. We here in So Cal are trying to help our lawn man as much as we can with some “bonus pay” work on our property that we need done. We know that many of his customers have gone “dark,” even as we are having a wet/weed-growth spring here in So Cal, esp this week! He is supporting a family…..he’s been with us since he was 18 or so–maybe 20 yrs ago…& his father retired & “gave” our lawn to him. We don’t even own a lawn mower anymore. He’s not a cerebral giant, but when my… Read more »

I was driving for work and saw a porno store open in Illinois. Yet we can’t get our hair cut?
