The War On Fudgies

Post by Ben Zonia » Tue Apr 07, 2020 4:40 pm

There have been public proclamations from various County officials, and probably some very angry private conversations with state officials, regarding seasonal residents returning early and telling them to stay home. They may be secretly contacting Whitmer to try to outlaw traveling between residences. Keep in mind that these people are paying double in property taxes on their second homes, and many have probably spent close to $50000-100000 or more in property taxes over the years. If these officials create lower property values, and lose millions in tourist dollars every year, what can be the result besides a ruined economy? We urge the Governor to resist further restricting travel. People from "Detroit", which according to a board poster here, means anyone who lives East of US-23 and South of I-69, have to resist this opposition and contact the Governor's office NOW! Those loosely defined "Detroiters" should be warned to quarantine for 14 days and only venture out when necessary. This may include mailing important bills, etc., so traveling to the Post Office should be allowed travel, as should curbside grocery and other necessary supplies.

Glad you are finally getting the message. Many out of town people have not been listening. If you call 211, grocery and mail services will be provided to you.

Have you thought about how downstate residents get tested when they need a doctor's referral before going to Munson? There are many reasons why coming up North is a bad idea.

Grand Traverse county is now issuing fines to Airbnb owners unless they rent to essential personelle.

Home Depot employees were questioning cottage owners if they had been quarratining.

Well then, when will Michael Moore be announcing that the 2020 Traverse City Film Festival is cancelled due to Coronavirus? I'll be listening to WNMC to hear you announce it.

Most Fudgies and Chicago Area people do not want people with the Chinese virus staying in their places anyway, for fear that the Chinese virus may remain, so this is just is just whistling in the dark. Wait till the lawsuits start though.

And exactly how long do you think it would take those "211" people to respond, especially in remote areas? I'm sure that they would triage your soon overdue bill to a very low level. And groceries, you would wait weeks. Have you tried grocery store delivery Downstate? Weeks! And then the person delivering has probably handled your food, and may have the Chinese virus, and expose you when they deliver it. What's the chance that the delivery person has the Chinese virus in Oakland County compared to say Leelanau County?

I have called some business people and chambers in Northern Michigan, and they are HORRIFIED at the draconian proclamations in Grand Traverse County and Chippewa County.

If healthy downstate folk are clean for two weeks before departing and only use curbside pickup (prepaid) what's the harm?

Whitmer was saying something about using gas pumps. Wear gloves, put credit card in sleeve. I found touch screens will work with thin leather gloves. Take them off then open trunk and leave them in trunk.

Diesel folks already do this because many pump owners have messy pumps.

I have been using a shopping bag from the grocery store as a glove when pumping gas. You can punch the keypad, working the pump and then peel it off without touching the outside. Then card and hands are sanitized before driving off.

Good idea, I have million plastic bags left over

Would love to see someone actually test a bunch of gas pump handles in a city or area that has relatively high Covid confirmations.

I'm really beginning to doubt it is much of a threat at all, and I'd bet they don't test because they know what the result would be.

I bet that would be difficult, like looking for needle in a haystack.

Just to clarify, “fudgies” are gays, right?

Yes, and some people are telling them not to pack their shit. People like TCT appear to be homophobic.

IF is the key. The one's we've been seeing aren't getting the point of distancing. I was in the National Park today and the popular hikes were jammed with out of state plates. Fortunately, there are places they don't know about...

Definition.

If that icon is actually TC Talks, then he looks like a mountain man. His shack is probably filled with guns and ammo, and maybe an AR-14 or two that Biden wants to confiscate. Stay clear of him.

I think the term is “fudge packers.” I take back my previous statement.
