  1. No single person should have this level of power for this long under any circumstances in this country.

    Covid is no longer an emergency.

    It’s an ongoing situation that can if needed be addressed by the GA.

  2. Weber will never convince anyone to change their minds as long as he lies in his opening sentence.

  3. Funny how ol Fred Flintstone never mentions all the riots are potential spreaders love how they all refuse to bring this up….

    what a joke power tripper….

    just give’em mo hot dogs and beans he will relent…

    mr. white privelege.. as they say…

  4. That RINO is the drama queen of the region. All talk.

    Since he can’t he’s content to make noises about what he would do. . .

    Kinda like the guy who gets beat to a pulp on the playground, then he and his attacker are restrained by the teachers and all he can do is run his mouth “lemme go, I’ll beat him silly”

    Uh, yeah, right!

  6. Weber is a fake Republican.

    He’s more like an avuncular publican.
