America is getting a real glimpse of life under left wing Democrat rule. Frightening.
This is the same left-wing nut who banned hydroxychloroquine despite its unquestionable efficacy in treating Coronavirus.
Michigan Governor Deems Gardening Supplies — Including Fruit And Vegetable Seeds — ‘Non-Essential’
By: Virginia Kruta
Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s latest executive order deems a number of home-improvement and gardening items — including fruit and vegetable seeds — “non-essential.”
In addition to enforcing social distancing measures and limiting the number of people in the stores that were allowed to remain open — in order to slow the spread of coronavirus — Whitmer’s April 9 order also gave explicit instructions with regard to items that could not be sold as they were considered “non-essential.”
The restriction on gardening supplies struck a nerve, which came just as the weather was beginning to warm to the proper temperatures for most early planting.
I didn't believe this at first, but Whitmer's order does indeed require stores to shut down their gardening and planting sections. https://t.co/aV7AOigtQp

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey pointed out that Michiganders could still legally buy marijuana while they were effectively being barred from planting home gardens. “In Michigan today you can buy weed but not seeds,” he said.

A few of the other items cordoned off in larger retail stores pursuant to Whitmer’s order raised eyebrows as well.
I sure hope so. I wish the Gov would have just kept on copying and pasting Ohio’s orders would have provided a lot more clarity and buy in from the business community & the public. We can defeat this pandemic, but in your country we have to have the public’s buy-in! pic.twitter.com/XloHbKLg3u

Governor Whitmer's order also prevents the purchase of car seats, which are both required by law and now apparently non-essential. https://t.co/DQmnYZyasH

Whitmer signed one of the most aggressive “stay-at-home” orders Friday. In addition to banning all public gatherings of any size, the new order — which took effect Saturday — barred residents from traveling between homes even if they owned both properties.
The Michigan governor is reportedly on former Vice President Joe Biden’s short list to be tapped as his vice presidential nominee.
