Texans should really prepare for a new wave of Californian refugees

From KTLA – Mayor Garcetti announces water and power will be shut off for nonessential L.A. businesses that don’t close

The mayor addressed President Trump’s remarks from earlier Tuesday about having the nation “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.” Garcetti said he didn’t think L.A. would be back to normal “in that short time.”

The mayor went on to announce the “business ambassadors program” — an effort to get nonessential businesses to close.

“This behavior is irresponsible and selfish,” he said of those that remain open.

He said the Department of Water and Power will shut off services for the businesses that don’t comply with the “safer at home” ordinance.

Neighborhood prosecutors will implement safety measures and will contact the businesses before issuing further action, according to Garcetti.

“The easiest way to avoid a visit is to follow the rules,” he said.

The loss of civil liberties in all of this has been astounding. But as I have told many friends lately, now that they have figured out how to steamroll this stuff through without even contemplating if it’s legal, wait until you see how low the hurdle is next time.
