  2. -PETSMART story cont'd "...........Popular Information confirmed with a Petsmart employee in Los Angeles that Petsmart grooming salons in the city were open on Monday. Many groomers, the employee said, were concerned for their safety. In response to a request for comment by Popular Information, Petsmart said in a statement that they would close their dog grooming salon locations in Los Angeles............ Petsmart gives employees talking points for run-ins with the law Internal guidance distributed to Petsmart employees, obtained by Popular Information, anticipates run-ins with law enforcement officials. ........ If law enforcement officials show up and say, “we need to close the salon,” employees are instructed to say: “We have been given direction from our corporate offices that we are allowed to operate the grooming salon.” If that doesn’t work, employees should tell law enforcement that “we have revamped our operations to be consistent with CDC guidelines.” But later in the same document, Petsmart instructs employees to violate the CDC’s social distancing guidelines in several circumstances that arise during pet grooming. At no point does Petsmart advise employees to comply with an order from a law enforcement or government official to close the grooming salon.............. https://popular.info/p/as-pandemic-spreads-petsmart-reopens
  3. As pandemic spreads, Petsmart reopens its dog grooming salons "On March 21, Petsmart, the largest specialty pet retailer in the United States, closed its dog grooming salons “out of concern for the safety and wellbeing of both our associates and customers.” But starting Monday, with the virus still raging in many areas of the United States, Petsmart reversed course. The company will reopen its salons and offer grooming services for dogs at many of its 1600 locations. Petsmart claims that its decision was “in accordance with government orders.” But that does not appear to be true. Los Angeles, for example, explicitly says that pet grooming is not a permitted business activity under its “Safer At Home” order. The only exception is if the grooming is provided as part of veterinary care.
  4. The Supreme Court’s disturbing order to effectively disenfranchise thousands of Wisconsin voters American democracy is in deep trouble. ".....Democrats hoped to defend a lower court order that allowed absentee ballots to be counted so long as they arrived at the designated polling place by April 13, an extension granted by a judge to account for the brewing coronavirus-sparked chaos on Election Day, April 7. Republicans successfully asked the Court to require these ballots to be postmarked by April 7. All five of the Court’s Republicans voted for the Republican Party’s position. All four of the Court’s Democrats voted for the Democratic Party’s position. The decision carries grave repercussions for the state of Wisconsin — and democracy more broadly. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg notes in her dissent, “the presidential primaries, a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, three seats on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, over 100 other judgeships, over 500 school board seats, and several thousand other positions” are at stake in the Wisconsin election, which will be held on Tuesday. Of all these seats, the state Supreme Court race, between incumbent conservative Justice Daniel Kelly and challenger Judge Jill Karofsky, is the most hotly contested........ ens of thousands of voters are not expected to even receive their ballots until after Election Day, effectively disenfranchising them through no fault of their own. In response to this brewing catastrophe, Judge William Conley, an Obama appointee to a federal court in Wisconsin, ordered the deadline for receiving ballots to be extended to 4 pm on April 13. In response to this order, the Republican Party asked the Supreme Court to modify Conley’s decision to require all ballots to be postmarked by April 7 or they will not be counted. The Supreme Court’s Republican majority granted the GOP this very specific request. Again, many voters are not expected to receive their ballots until after this April 7 deadline............... Republicans have fought tooth and nail to make it hard to vote in Tuesday’s election The Supreme Court’s decision in Republican is the capstone of a weeks-long effort by the Republican Party to make it difficult for voters to actually cast a ballot in Wisconsin. Last week, Gov. Evers called the state legislature into session and asked it to delay the election. But the Republican-controlled legislature ended that session just seconds after it was convened. After Evers acted on his own authority to delay the election, the state’s Supreme Court voted along partisan lines to rescind Evers’s order. Republicans also rejected Evers’s proposal to automatically mail ballots to every voter in the state. The background is that Republicans hope to hold on to a seat on the state Supreme Court, which is up for grabs in Tuesday’s election.............. In 2018, 54 percent of voters chose a Democratic candidate for the state Assembly. But Republicans have so completely gerrymandered the state that they prevailed in 63 of the state’s 99 Assembly races. There is far more at stake in Wisconsin, moreover, than one state Supreme Court seat. Wisconsin could be the pivotal swing state that decides the 2020 presidential election. The question of whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden occupies the White House next year could easily be determined by which man receives Wisconsin’s electoral votes. And the Court’s decision in Republican suggests that the Supreme Court will give the GOP broad leeway in how US elections should be conducted.' https://www.vox.com/2020/4/6/21211378/supreme-court-coronavirus-voting-rights-disenfranchise-rnc-dnc?utm_campaign=vox&utm_content=entry&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
  5. The New York Times @nytimes · 1h Some poll workers wore makeshift hazmat suits. Many voters wore masks. One carried a sign that read “This Is Ridiculous.” Wisconsin voters are weighing risks to their health against their right to vote as the state holds an election during a pandemic.
  6. Staggering Surge Of NYers Dying In Their Homes Suggests City Is Undercounting Coronavirus Fatalities "....... As of Monday afternoon, 2,738 New York City residents have died from ‘confirmed’ cases of COVID-19, according to the city Department of Health. That’s an average of 245 a day since the previous Monday. But another 200 city residents are now dying at home each day, compared to 20 to 25 such deaths before the pandemic, said Aja Worthy-Davis, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office. And an untold number of them are unconfirmed. ........ https://gothamist.com/news/surge-number-new-yorkers-dying-home-officials-suspect-undercount-covid-19-related-deaths
  7. Coronavirus has ignited a battle over voting by mail. Here's why it's so controversial. "You'd never have a Republican elected in this country again," Trump said about it. "..............The tension sets up a battle in Congress over the next coronavirus relief measure, known to many on Capitol Hill as "Phase 4." Democratic leaders face growing pressure from their base — liberal activists and mainstream figures alike — to use the next aid package as leverage to ensure access to the ballot box by requiring every state to offer the option of voting by mail. "With the insanity of Wisconsin, Democrats have the proof they need to make this a mandate for November," said Neera Tanden, the president of Center For American Progress....... The eight states that have switched to or are in the process of switching to entirely vote-by-mail say it is not only possible to protect the integrity of the ballot, but that they've been doing it successfully for years...... Election experts say it's not clear that vote-by-mail would actually help Democrats, noting that plenty of Republicans still get elected in Utah and that Republican-leaning counties in Wisconsin have been returning absentee ballots at higher rates than Democratic-leaning ones. Wisconsin is not the only battleground state where partisan fighting has already led to confusion about an election during the coronavirus crisis.... "Vote by mail in my view is not acceptable," Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, a Republican, said in an interview with a local news site. "This will be extremely devastating to Republicans and conservatives in Georgia... This will certainly drive up turnout." https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/coronavirus-has-ignited-battle-over-voting-my-mail-here-s-n1178531?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_np

  9. Greg Sargent @ThePlumLineGS Let's be blunt: Trump's depraved attack on the IG at HHS displays a mindset that could lead to more deaths. It's *hospitals* who told the IG that they badly need lifesaving equipment. Yet all Trump can hear is an effort to make *him* look bad. ----------------------------------------------------- Trump just tweeted that the IG report is a "fake dossier." ****, this is the HOSPITALS telling Trump how he can help them SAVE AMERICAN LIVES!
  10. Steve Edwards @SDECoxHealth We need federal intervention. Supply is disrupted and filled with profiteering middle men and counterfeits. N95 mask was $.62 now $6.50, gowns were $.24, now $4.50. In a federal emergency if gas went from $1.50 to $28.13 per gallon would we intervene? These PPEs can save lives. =========================================== Rachel Maddow MSNBC @maddow · 12m Plea from head of hospital group in southwest Missouri: "We need federal intervention"

  12. Voters Face Long Lines at Wisconsin's Polls After Primary Elections Confusion, Fears of Coronavirus Infection "........Many Wisconsin residents had already voted by mail, but as of Sunday, the Wisconsin Elections Commission still had more than 12,000 absentee ballots in its possession that needed to be sent to registered voters. Residents who don't receive an absentee ballot must cast their vote in person. The lines indicated that many voters came out Tuesday despite the on-again-off-again scheduling of the primary during the past few days. On Monday, a last-minute intervention from the U.S. Supreme Court greenlighted in-person elections after Governor Tony Evers ordered the election postponed until June............. Jay Heck, executive director of the government watchdog group Common Cause Wisconsin, said in a statement that the "chaos" of Tuesday's elections was "no doubt disenfranchising voters." Other critics and voting-rights advocates also denounced Tuesday's proceedings, arguing that forcing voters to choose between safety and casting a ballot will lead to large-scale disenfranchisement. "We cannot allow this pandemic to erode our democratic principles and the right to vote safely. Yet, what we see happening in Wisconsin is exactly that," a spokesperson for Color of Change PAC, a group that advocates for black representation in government, said in a statement. "And we know the pain will not be equally felt. Black voters are most at risk of being disenfranchised in today's primary elections in Wisconsin." https://www.newsweek.com/wisconsin-voting-elections-tony-evers-1496651?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1586281694
