This week, the Michigan Medical Veterinary Association sent a formal request to Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. As Corona is on the downswing they asked her to rescind her orders regarding the severe restrictions she placed on spays and neuters.
Her view when that order was imposed in March was that those operations were elective surgery and not worth the risk to the general population.
However, it is now May. Spring has sprung and the animals are all running around outside. There is going to be a major upswing in feral dog and cat population in Michigan. The feral dog population of Detroit is a genuine problem, in particular, there are packs in that city that have been known to hunt people.
And there is also the matter of the surgery being easier to perform on younger animals.
Governer Whitler in perfect Solomonic wisdom drew her sword and then proceeded to cut the baby in half.
Her royal decree is that only Shelter pets may be spayed and neutered.
This is the torrent of stupidity that pours out of the governor’s mansion in Lansing this year.
The GOP in Michigan has been a moribund organization for twenty years but they do control both chambers of the state congress, sadly not a veto-proof one. But even they have been roused from their dreamy lassitude by her latest power grab this week.
The state of emergency law in Michigan gives the governor twenty-eight days to do whatever once the state legislature authorizes the state of emergency. On the twenty-seventh day this week, the Iron Ding-Bat dissolved her own order and issued a new one for the next twenty-eight days.
The state legislature has formally denied the legal legitimacy of this order and passed a motion saying if she didn’t sign the order the bill that would reopen the state they were going to take her court for violating the Constitution of the State of Michigan as well as the Constitution of the United States of America.
The Iron Ding-Bat holds her course undeterred. She has bigger fish to fry.
It’s now obvious that she is doing this under instructions from the Biden Campaign.
“Gretchen honey, destroy Michigan’s economy and we guarantee you theVeep spot on the ticket. And let’s face facts that puts you one eighty-year-old heartbeat away from the White House. Don’t worry about blowback at all. We completely control the press. I mean come on, Chris Cuomo has his own fucking news show. They are literally our family. I guarantee you that if you leave Michigan a wasteland, the press will completely blame Trump for it. You’ve got a job to do.
Now do it!”
She is so drunk with power and the prospect of even more power, that she can’t see the obvious truth that if she succeeds in bulldozing Michigan’s economy, Joe Biden will treat her like he did Tara Reade.
