“The only non-essential business is government”

During the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, many governments shut down businesses that were deemed “non-essential.” “The only non-essential business I see is the Government and News Media.  I don’t obey unlawful or ridiculous orders from anyone!” was posted on Twitter by Just Renting on March 18, 2020.

Can I just point out that the “essential” businesses that can stay open during these shutdown?? Basically that is 90+% of ALL businesses in every town or city. How many gas stations grocery stores etc AND the ones who maintain and supply are there in towns/cities???

The only non-essential business is the Canadian government. SHUT IT DOWN. We don’t need to be paying those buffoons to clamor and gong symbols. Send them all home.
