Middleton Enacts “Unlawful” Restrictions

There is a huge disconnect between the draconian laws that we are expected to obey and fact that the government is letting protesters and rioters ignore all of the laws. Equal application of the law is a fundamental pillar of a free society. And yes, Middleton does not have the legal authority to enact these restrictions.

MIDDLETON, Wis. (WMTV) – The Tavern League of Wisconsin is calling restrictions on bars and restaurants “unlawful,” after public health officials announced a new emergency order Wednesday to slow the spread of coronavirus.

At restaurants, the restriction (Emergency Order #7) brings indoor dining capacity down from 50 percent to 25 percent. Bars can no longer allow indoor dining, only takeout and outdoor seating with physical distancing.

Janel Heinrich, the director of Public Health Madison & Dane County, said that the county has experienced a high number of cases recently. She also said that contact tracers found much of the spread has come from public gatherings, restaurants and bars.

    the government is letting protesters and rioters ignore all of the laws.

    Wow, that’s quite a stretch.

  2. Mar

    Obviously, jjf, when you were gone a few days, you missed all the rioting, looting and vandalism in Madison and no one stopping them.

  3. Merlin

    The Good Neighbor City needs to seek better legal counsel.

  4. Kevin Scheunemann

    Middleton will get in trouble for this.

    the government is letting protesters and rioters ignore all of the laws.

    Wow, that’s quite a stretch.

    He is right jjf.  I have not seen a single rioter arrested.  There has not been a single time when police were there to try and stop potential rioters.

  6. Randall Flagg

    Does kapenga have the legal authority to give medical advice?

    Well, he certainly doesn’t have the intelligence to.  That is for sure and you gave exhibit A as proof.

  7. Jason

    Simple, ask Judge Fredrickson to review the order. He seems to be good at deciding correctly.

    Similar shady shit was attempted in Walworth county, thankfully a handful of alert citizens detected it and brought it to the general public’s attention. Enough voices were heard that the council voted against. And then said nothing in the order was not already enumerated in State Statutes. Really? Then why vote on at all?

  8. jjf

    Randall, Owen is exaggerating for effect.  He wants to conflate peaceful protesters (the majority) with those who broke the law by destroying property (a tiny minority.)

    Google “rioters arrested” and tell me what you see.

    1,500 in Chicago on one weekend a month ago, most for disorderly conduct.

    “in some cases” is does not make it a wonder drug. And it still isn’t approved
    for use on coronavirus.

    You and trump are still wrong. No surprise.

  10. Mar

    Pathological Liar Le Roi, no one said it would work in every case.
    You are wrong and it’s time admit that you were wrong.
    And now you are lying again.

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrongo mar, your fearless leader did. Geez, your memory is selective.

  12. Mar

    Show me the quotes Pathological Liar Le Roi.
    And again, showing once again, this is about you wanting more deaths.
    Most normal people would be happy that there is another possible treatment.
    But not you.
    Because this good for Trump, it is bad for you.
    Keep on hoping for more deaths, Le Roi.

  13. Mar

    So, Pathological Liar Le Roi, I did check President Trump quotes on the drug. He basically said it may help or it may not.
    So, once again, you have been caught lying.
    How many times has it been? 10,20,30,40 or more times?

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    trump made lots of claims re his wonder drug, most of which weren’t true. So no, I wasn’t the liar.

  15. Mar

    Show me the quotes.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    You already said you looked at them, you forget already?

  17. Mar

    So, you admit you are lying?
    I agree with that.

  18. Le Roi du Nord

    No, I didn’t agree to that.

    Or didn’t you really look at all trumps comments on his game changing drug?

  19. Mar

    Le ROI, you do know what the definition of insanity is?
    Doing something over and over and expecting different results.
    You keep lying over and over and you don’t you will get caught.
    But you do.
    But I will give you. As you are such a good liar, you make President Trump look extremely honest.
    So, thanks for doing that.

  20. Le Roi du Nord

    So mar, where did I admit to lying? Or does making up fantasy tales make you feel more manly?

  21. Mar

    You have not provided 1 quote. But you blather on in your dementia state.
    I actually looked up his statements and saw nothing that indicated that you are telling the truth.
    So, either you are lying or you too incompetent to lie.
    Just wondering which one it is.

  22. jjf

    Le Roi, think about how much stronger our arguments would be if we knew what someone did for a living.  Or if we had a picture of them!  Then we could tell them they didn’t know how to do their job, and that they looked funny!  And then we would tell them they were lying liars!

  23. Le Roi du Nord

    Gee mar, you claimed to have read all his quotes, so what purpose would there be in repeating them? Or didn’t you really read (or can’t) them at all? Either way I probably can’t assist you with with your comprehension problems.

  24. Mar

    I’m glad Le Roi your dog loves you because I cannot see how anyone else could love you with all your lying.
    Unless, of course, you just lie here, like the troll you are.
    But President Trump thanks you for making him look like an Eagle Scout compared to you.

  25. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again, mar. trump meets none of the qualifications to be an Eagle Scout. Why would you disrespect Eagle Scouts with such a ridiculous and untruthful claim?

  26. Mar

    Reading comprehension just isn’t your strong suit, is it, Le Roi

  27. Le Roi du Nord

    Well mar, it is obviously a stronger suit for me than for you, but we’ll give you a participation trophy. We wouldn’t want to discourage you from trying.

  28. Mar

    So, Le Roi, where did I say President Trump was an Eagle Scout.
    Now, I realize that I used words that had more than 3 letters in them, so it may be tough for you to understand.

  29. Le Roi du Nord


    You said he looks like an Eagle Scout. Did you forget already? Describe how your claim could possibly be true.

  30. Mar

    I sure hope you understand now.
    I put this in big letters to help you read.

  31. Le Roi du Nord

    Tell us all how trump looks like a Eagle Scout. Oh, you can’t. Another fact free claim from the marster.

  32. Jason

    Jesus Leroy you just want to go all the way with this, dont you. I applaud you, you dont give a shit what the rest of us think, you want to show full stupid today.

  33. Mar

    Le ROI, you are beyond hope with your lying.
    Can you ever tell the truth?
    I doubt it.
    Just as bad as a first grader.
    You really need to grow up.

  34. Le Roi du Nord


    So you , too can claim trump looks like an Eagle Scout? Amazing!

  35. Mar

    Le ROI you are proof that evolution CAN go in reverse.

  36. Jason

    Just remember Leroy with every post here you make trump look “MORE” like one than you.

  37. Jason

    Congratulations on your hat trick. You should probably get a nap in before any fireworks show tonight. You know how you get “bitey” with the help if you’re not rested.

  38. Le Roi du Nord

    mar, don’t tell k you believe in evolution, or he will condemn you to eternal damnation.

    j: No hired help here, I’ll leave that to you elitists. And I’m not a big fan of fireworks, it’s an assault on silence, and the neighbors dogs don’t care for all the noise.

    But it is intern that none of you can justify how trump looks lean Eagle Scout. You guys are all BS.

  39. Jason

    >But it is intern that none of you can justify how trump looks lean Eagle Scout. You guys are all BS.

    Did you switch to your native tongue? You might have missed your nap old man…

  40. Le Roi du Nord


    No, my apologies.  It should read , “But it is interesting….. “.

    So, can you say that trump looks like an Eagle Scout ?

  41. Jason

    Did you miss a med dose? He doesn’t look lean an eagle scout, like you asked earlier.

  42. Le Roi du Nord

    “He doesn’t look lean an eagle scout”.  Whatever,

    But mar claims he looks like an Eagle Scout.  You?

  43. dad29

    A little too much happiness on the Fourth….

  44. Mar

    Le ROI said he was connected with law enforcement for 32 years.
    Based on his history of being a total fraud and liar….
    I m wondering if Le Roi was in prison as a convict for 32 years, thus his connection with law enforcement

  45. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again, mar. You are making a habit of that. Or is it a career?

  46. MHMaley

    My ass bleeds for the Tavern League .
    They’ve run Wisconsin like Mafia bosses for decades with both parties in charge .

    They deserve any bad ruling they get .

  47. jjf

    Le Roi, it’s all he likes to talk about.

  48. Mar

    And there goes jjf defending liars and dishonest people.
    I guess internet trolls need to stick together.
