    Protest

    Our unelected mayor just put us back into lockdown closing all restaurants, bars, bingo halls etc and put other businesses on a 25% occupancy limitation except the box stores. They spent 22 million of the CARES money on buying hotels (out of business do to their COVID restrictions) for free vagrant housing. They spend 3 million of CARES money to build some trails which they never finished.

    I'll be attending a civil disobedience protest at the mayor's office in an hour. We are only allowed 25 people for any gatherings outdoors. I suspect they will see more massless folks than that.

    Can't abide by what they are doing to one of the best "cities" in the Nation. Businesses are closing.

    If you are curious why we need shut down in their mind ........ 68 deaths since March. I kid you not.

    I've wondered if the lockdowns and other measures have lowered the STD transmissions.

    EVERY death is from Covid these days. Even if there was a car smashup involved.

    Not as many folks as I would have hoped. I'll be speaking at the next assembly meeting 12/8.

    Give me more credit than that. On the run, maybe. In jail, not likely.

    That the narrative of overwhelming the healthcare system as an excuse to destroy the local economy and not educate our children in a State that already ranks 4th worst education in the nation is unconscionable.

    Our ICU beds aren't full, we have two emergency overflow locations prepped and dormant and they say we don't have staff. The 22 million dollar vagrant housing shell game and the now 4.5 million dollar trail to nowhere both using cares money would have paid for 530 traveling nurses if needed at an enticing wage to get them up here.

    I'll recommend they stop being helicopter parents to the people of Anchorage. Give us the facts, give us your recommendations, and then let us as mature adults ascertain our personal and family risk analysis and live accordingly.

    BTW, it's the teachers union keeping the schools closed. A cashier at the supermarket or Walmart is essential but a teacher is not?

    You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to make a clear point with supporting data in only three minutes.
