Brickbat: Don't Tiptoe Through the Tulips

|

New Jersey officials shut down the annual drive-thru tulip festivals hosted by Dalton Farms and Holland Ridge Farms, saying they violated an executive order by Gov. Phil Murphy banning events. The farms were classified by state officials as essential businesses, so they remain open. But the owners of the farms say not being able to charge people to drive through will mean a big hit to their revenue.

  1. Forget about it, it’s Jersey.

    1. It is very beautiful ..

  2. Someone forgot to pay off the right Jerksey officials.

  3. Tony hardest hit.

    1. I haven’t seen him around lately. Have I just missed his appearances?

      1. I think he was socking a week or so ago, but there’s been so many lefty socks lately it’s hard to say for sure.

    It’s not about your health.

    When the State tells you it’s safe to go to Home Depot to buy a sponge but dangerous to go and buy a flower, it’s not about your health.

    When the State shuts down millions of private businesses but doesn’t lay off a single government employee, it’s not about your health.

    When the State bans dentists because its unsafe, but deems an abortion visit is safe, it’s not about your health.

    When the State prevents you from buying cucumber seeds because it’s dangerous, but allows personal lottery ticket sales, it’s not about your health.

    When the State tells you it’s dangerous to go golf alone, fish alone or be in a motor boat alone, but the Governor can get his stage make-up done & hair done for 5 TV appearances a week, it’s not about your health.

    When the state puts you IN a jail cell for walking in a park with your child because it’s too dangerous but lets criminals OUT of jail cells for their health – it’s not about your health.

    When the state tells you it’s too dangerous to get treated by a doctor for chiropractic or physical therapy treatments yet deems a liquor store essential – it’s not about your health.

    When the State lets you go to the grocery store or hardware store but is demanding mail-in voting – it’s not about your health.

    WAKE UP PEOPLE… If you think any of this BS is about your health, you’re
    a fool!! Please open your eyes & stop being lead like blind sheep.”

    1. Sorry, the Sheeple have spoken.

      And Soylent Green is Sheeple.

    2. That’s for blue states not here. We didn’t even have a lock down.

      1. Most red states too. What state are you in?

    3. You’re a comprehensive dumbass, Eric the Red.

      It is comforting to know that guys like you don’t contribute much to American beyond muttering bitterly from the right-wing fringe about reason, science, diversity, and progress.

      1. Poor Rev. It’s been weeks since you left your dirty studio apartment. You tried to grow a beard but it came in patchy, the local laundromat closed and you’ve been washing your underwear in the tub, and your last rent check bounced. But you find the time to come here and vomit your pain on us.

        Thoughts and prayers, muddy.

  5. No, they’re saying buying a flower is not dangerous, but looking at a flower is. Because that’s an “event”.

    1. “This isn’t an event.”

      “Yes, it is.”

      /Monty Python

  6. Drove thru. New Jersey won’t let people “drive thru” a tulip farm.

  7. There’s a method to this madness. Several Governors are using this to score points with the DNC, The idea is the same as when they can’t pass a budget or spending bill. Use your power to inconvenience as many people as possible. In this case they want people mad and to tell them it’s Trump’s fault, to both influence the election and to get money from the Federal Government to bail out their dumb-ass spending.

  8. “”But the owners of the farms say not being able to charge people to drive through will mean a big hit to their revenue.””

    Sooooooo many people are going to get screwed.

    Big government liberals are going to get screwed. Big government is not going to show the same amount of love for the liberal pawns as the liberal pawns shows for big government.
