“Feeding my kids isn’t selfish,” said Shelley Luther, to the judge before being sentenced to 7 days in jail for re-opening her hair salon in Dallas, Texas.
Shelly Luther made the controversial decision to defy Texas’s stay-at-home order and reopened her salon this last week on April 24th. The Judge asked Luther to apologize, admit that she was wrong, and close her hair salon until it was allowed to re-open, Luther refused and was then sentenced to 7 days in jail.
It is being reported that since the sentence, Luther has been hit with a hefty 7,000 dollar fine. Her salon is also being fined $1000 for every day she continues to defy the state’s orders. The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has just stated that Salons can open this Friday, May 8th, so Luther will be fined every day till Friday.
I am shocked this happening. This isn’t the America I know, and I refuse to accept this as a “new normal.” People have the RIGHT to earn a living!
I have said this and will continue to say this, our Constitutional rights do not go away in the midst of a pandemic. We must rise up and speak up! I hope this woman shows the pastors out there what a backbone looks like, because in the midst of all of this madness, churches have the right to assemble, and we are protected by the Constitution to do so! The INDIVIDUAL has the RIGHT to CHOOSE TO STAY HOME OR CHOOSE TO NOT STAY HOME!
Freedom is CHOICE.
All of this started as a virus. It has since morphed into a paralyzing FEAR. Irrational fear, not based on science. Power and control have since taken over and we are witnessing complete government overreach.
Here is Luther’s response to the judge. This woman is a hero!
The price of having a dissenting opinion is great. Look at what happened to Martin Luther King Jr. when he went completely against group think, and spoke of equality and freedom. Look at what happened to Rosa Parks, when she refused to comply and move to the back of the bus. Look at what happened to Jesus when HE did not align with the Pharisees and Sadduces -they hung HIM on a tree. The list of those who dared to question authority, who dared to have an alternate view, who dared to speak up and speak out is endless……
When we are being told by authority that “staying at home saves lives,” but child abuse cases are up. Suicide is skyrocketing. Domestic abuse and drug abuse are up too. Are we not to question if these lives are being saved?
We are being told by authority that we must sacrifice our businesses and livelihoods by staying home to get this virus to go away. But SCIENCE completely contradicts with this methodology. Throughout history SCIENCE has NEVER aligned with quarantining HEALTHY people. NEVER. As we sit at home, our immune systems are shutting down because we are not being exposed to necessary bacteria and viruses that BUILD UP our immunities. We already have the antibodies to fight what is in our homes, we must be exposed to society, in order to fight and survive what is in our society. There is NO SCIENCE in “staying home saves lives” NONE.
Those in authority have inferred that by staying home, the virus will go away. Here’s a little secret, the virus IS NOT GOING AWAY. The whole reason we were staying home was NOT to get rid of the virus, it was so we wouldn’t “overrun” our hospitals. Well that moment has passed. You can tune in to TikTok, and see a plethora of nurses dancing around in their PPE- we’re good now, all clear 👍. This is not a slam on nurses or doctors either. They should have moments to dance, and celebrate that they are no longer in war zones anymore. I have a sister who is a nurse and my brother’s sister is also a nurse working with Covid19 patients. I am extremely grateful for their service and sacrifice during this time.
People might want to stay home till there’s a vaccine and that is their right to do so. Unfortunately, most viruses, don’t have vaccines, and waiting for a vaccine before one leaves their home, could quite possibly mean waiting FOREVER. Or a vaccine could possibly come out that is as accurate as the flu vaccine.
Many are upset that people want to Work. But it is WORKING PEOPLE that FUND our Government. The government runs and functions off of the WORKING AMERICAN. That stimulus check, brought to you by THE WORKING AMERICAN. The government can not continue printing money and sending checks when NO AMERICAN WORKER is producing. This would create inflation and an onset of a GREAT DEPRESSION.
Living in America means YOU get to CHOOSE.
THIS IS WHAT I AM FIGHTING FOR, AND THIS IS WHAT IS UNDER ATTACK.
Our country was founded upon INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. The right for the INDIVIDUAL, NOT Government (Authority) to CHOOSE what is best for the Individual.
It is in this moment we should question authority. We must not so flippantly fall in line and watch our rights trampled upon. Right now, in this moment, our Constitutional Rights are being overridden, and we should question this.
Yes, people will tell you to “shut up.” People will tell you to fall in line and comply.
People will tell you to STOP.
Don’t let them silence you. Don’t let them bully you.
Can you take the heat?
We are the LAND OF THE FREE.
