June 3, 2020 at 10:48 am Rosenblatt says: Like or Dislike: 5 2Serious question: if a business violates a safety order – say they’re only supposed to be operating at 50% capacity but are actually operating at 100% capacity – should the business still be shielded? June 3, 2020 at 2:16 pm Craig Winston Cornell says: Like or Dislike: 6 3Answer: yes. The burden of proof is on the PLAINTIFF to show that COVID 19 could not have been contracted anywhere else in the world except that business location. Because the business violates any regulation means nothing. The plaintiff simply can’t prove they contracted Covid 19 at that business and ONLY at that business in any viable circumstance.

I appreciate your successful attempt to keep this part of the thread relevant to the article and mature in nature.

If so, explain why they should be allowed to operate, while elective surgeries are non-essential, and if they should be shielded from liability. June 4, 2020 at 11:24 am Jon says: Like or Dislike: 4 6Two of those three are already essential services, whether you like it or not. Your ignorance is showing. Dispensaries are never recre-pot only, you can google this yourself, even though you may not like to. There are multiple organizations that map out dispensaries, and there’s no such thing as a recre-pot only dispensary. As stated previously and I know you’ve seen it, medical dispensaries serve a legitimate medical need. As do abortion clinics. You can try and sway this any way you like but you can’t change facts, Polar. June 4, 2020 at 1:02 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 5 5How exactly was his question legitimate, when he’s had these things explained to him multiple times and we both know he’s trying to instigate another fight? I said his ignorance was showing. I’m sorry you’re such a delicate flower that that comes off as bile and hate, maybe you should go to a safe space until you’re able to deal with the reality of a difficult world once again. Elective surgery is not life threatening. Cancer patients without access to their medication and women with life-threatening pregnancies are both situations where medical marijuana and abortions can literally be life-saving. It’s pretty simple, and I’m happy to explain things to the ignorant any day. June 4, 2020 at 1:04 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 3 6Oh, also, his question is legitimate even though he purports the existence of “recre-pot only dispensaries” a thing that does not exist. So he has a legitimate question, but he couldn’t even be bothered attempting to research his question in the slightest before asking? I know white people love trying to make black people explain things to them, but no one is responsible for his or your ignorance except yourselves.

June 4, 2020 at 3:13 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 1 3Perplexed, you missed all of Craig’s insulting, dishonest posts which were removed while some of my responses to his post remained. You literally only saw half the conversation. Not that I think you care, because you’ve shown yourself to only have a problem with insult-slinging when it’s from the left, but you are incorrect in thinking I started the finger pointing. Maybe you should advise your right-wing buddies to be less insulting, and more honest, if they don’t like having their dishonesty and hypocrisy thrown in their faces?
