Nolte: My North Carolina Lockdown’s Been Extended for No Valid Reason

 1Lt. Robert Logan Sugar Valley Composite Squadron - Civil Air Patrol takes inventory of supplies during COVID-19 Emergency Relief 2020 in western North Carolina, April 8, 2020. The North Carolina National Guard has been working with the State Emergency response partners on COVID-19 response since March 2020, while over 300 …
I’m sorry, but this is utter nonsense. If anything, as soon as it became clear our local health system would not be forced into triage, things should have started reopening. But instead, we’re extending this madness…
One more week for countless small businesses to die. One more week of people living with unbearable toothaches. One more week of my wife being half-blinded by cataracts. One more week of record unemployment… And for what?
Gov. Roy Cooper (D-NC) just extended North Carolina’s statewide stay-at-home-order to May 8 — and has done so for no valid reason I can think of.

As of the end of April, we will have been in total lockdown for a full month, and now we face another week of this, and nothing about it makes sense.

Throughout our entire state, there have been only 8,830 confirmed coronavirus cases, 305 deaths, and, as of now, our state’s hospitals must look awfully barren with only 451 people hospitalized for the coronavirus and all elective procedures and surgeries canceled.

Our worst hot spot is Mecklenberg County, home of Charlotte, but that urban area saw only 1,482 cases and 41 deaths.

So with these numbers, what is the point of continuing the lockdowns?

Isn’t the whole point of the lockdown to ensure our health care system doesn’t crash? So where in North Carolina is there any fear of the health system crashing — I mean, other than from bankruptcy, because the hospitals are all empty due to the outlawing of elective procedures?

Okay, maybe Charlotte and Raleigh and some other cities are a concern. Fine, extend their lockdowns… But why my county?

  1. Why?

    Obviously because he can and few oppose him. Sadly, he is showing how easy it is to bypass both Federal and State Constitutions as as how few people really seem to notice or care as long as government keeps them "safe."

    And how many have noticed the massive financial restructuring that just took place or seem to care about the new license to steal simply because they got a few crumbs that fell from their master's table?

    Y'all have a nice day.
