When is a lockdown, not a lockdown?
When is a lockdown not a lockdown? England has begun its second lockdown due to expire Wednesday, December 2, 2020. However, Cabinet Minister Michael Grove indicated that it might last longer.
Here in Wisconsin, a lockdown comes in the form of an executive order by Governor Evers. The Executive Order #94 is a laundry list of exhortations signed by the Governor. The governor’s counsel is in the form of four numbered points with items 2 and 3 having several subset points.
The bulk of this missive is a regurgitation of things the residents of Wisconsin and the rest of the nation have been told for the past eight months. The admonition for the past eight months to:
Wear a face covering.
Stay home as much as possible.
Wash hands frequently

Stay Home as much as possible? What I read here, intentionally or not is that they want the residents of the state to self institute a lockdown or self-quarantine. Why? The governor and his minions likely know that officially mandating a statewide lockdown will be met with both legal and political challenges that they don’t want to face.
Face masks and staying at home as much as possible just two of the governor’s recommendations in his Executive order. All this pomp and circumstance for a virus that has a 99.875% recovery rate is? Anyone...Anyone...Bueller...Bueller...Bueller.
