Governor Ralph Northam was one of the first governors to shut down bars, restaurants, salons, and gyms in his state, not to mention canceling school for the remainder of the school year which wouldnt’ have ended until almost the middle of June. He did all of this in mid-March.

Yup.

Originally he shut down the ‘nonessentials’ until April 23, and then he magically extended that two more weeks to May 8.

Oh, and did we mention the official ‘stay at home’ BS he also issued in March … out until June 10?

This might make sense if Virginia was actually a hotbed for the virus buuuuut, it’s not.

And especially not the whole state, so what’s the deal, Ralph?

Laura Ingraham asked this question in a far better and challenging way:

His name is Ralph, as in puke (gold star if you recognize the movie reference).

From whsv.com:

That means, effectively, that until May 8, gatherings of more than 10 people are banned and all businesses that had to initially close due to the order have to remain closed until May 8 at the earliest.

“As we have seen from our data and models, social distancing is working, and we are slowing the spread of this virus,” said Governor Northam. “But it is too early to let up. By extending this order to keep certain businesses closed or restricted, we can continue to evaluate the situation and plan for how to eventually ease restrictions so that our businesses may operate without endangering public health.”

The Stay at Home order, which was issued through Executive Order 55, remains in effect until June 10, as it was originally set.

The governor said he and his team will continue to monitor health data over the coming weeks to determine what happens next, after the May 8 expiration date.

Too early to let up.

Because you know, it hasn’t done enough damage to Virginians just yet.

Adapt to this new normal … right.

Ralph is still going to work.

Ralph is still getting a paycheck.

Ralph doesn’t have to worry about feeding his family.

Ralph can probably get his hair cut.

It’s sad that Americans are asking for permission to open and run their businesses.

Sorry, not sad, totally effed up.

Sounds like some Virginians are getting ready to stand up for the freedom:

Details … you know, in case someone was interested.

Ahem.

Time to reopen Virginia, Ralph.
