If I want it, I need it. Therefore it is essential.
It is not up to any petty tyrannical power-hungry politician to decide what is essential. Once we let them dictate what we can buy then they can dictate how you live.
Once they determine “they” know best, your freedom is gone.
Today it is paint, bug spray, flowers, or a new TV.
Tomorrow it will be soft drinks, candy bars, and Twinkies banned for your own good. Do we want bureaucrats deciding what you can purchase?
Why not just set up government stores where we can wait in line to get our ration of meat, bread, and toilet paper?
One doesn’t have to go too far back in time to see such practices put in place by power hungry tyrants and leftists in general. The time to stop such nonsense is now. Call your local Representative and demand action. Protest. Support the black market. The Invisible Hand always, always triumphs.

Frankly, I am getting more than a little tired of the pseudo- martial law imposed by our self-imagined betters. As things improve health-wise I expect restrictions removed, not increased. I’m looking northward, Michigan. And just a few miles south, Governor Holcomb.
These are times that try Men’s souls, indeed.
