Thank your lucky stars if you don’t live in California — or anywhere where seemingly communist-level leftists are running things. The draconian pandemic measures that the hypocritical politicians in that state have placed on its people might even make George Orwell do a double-take.
Apparently, moving in any fashion outside of your own home is now “prohibited” in Los Angeles, and they’re not talking about moving to a new home — although that’s probably also prohibited if you can physically do anything outdoors.
According to a new order from far-left Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D), titled “Public Order Under City of Los Angeles Emergency Authority,” “We [Los Angelenos] must refrain from gathering with people from outside our household whenever possible.”
Gotta love how they say “we,” as if they’re actually going to follow their own edicts. We, the people, have seen too many instances recently of them defying their own orders to trust them and their intentions.
But perhaps the most egregious part of the order comes in the updated provisions of L.A.’s “Safer L.A. Order,” “which is necessary for the protection of life and property in the City of Los Angeles and is effective immediately,” according to said order:
- All persons living within the City of Los Angeles are hereby ordered to remain in their homes
- All businesses within the City of Los Angeles are ordered to cease operations that require in-person attendance by workers at a workplace
- All public and private gatherings of any number of people from more than one household are prohibited
- All travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit is prohibited
You’re basically not allowed to travel in any capacity. You can go to the park, but you can only participate in “recreational activites” as “defined” within the order.
The order is extremely convoluted, probably to make people as confused as possible on what the actual “rules” are that the government is dictating to them.
Basically folks, don’t live in Los Angeles. If these dictatorial orders keep coming down the pike, big cities will be done in a matter of time. It won’t be a matter of if, but when.
