Give them a waiver. It works for Zer0.

I live 10 minutes from Wisconsin.
Might have to make a run for the border.

The Governor is still on the job so he can go process this himself.

If the state is shutdown, who can enforce this?

Is there a downside to this?

Heh. Shades of that Miller commercial where the delivery man pulls the beer out of the coolers.

its branding license wasn't renewed

Branding licenses, who knew?

The ways the politicians find to protect the little people would seem to have no bounds.

Now this getting serious. Off to Walmart before it’s to late to get my MGD 54. I am a transplant here, waiting until we can escape to South Dakota. I hate this socialist scum sucking governor and all his minions and all the dummies that voted for him. Rant off!

Good question. I wonder which enforcers are not working.

Darn good question. But it is a choice.

The executive branch can selectively decide which parts of state government to fund and which to shutdown.

I hope Minnesota voters get a real bellyful of the consequences of promoting fools to high political office. Mark Dayton was a known fool when they elected him governor.

Oh, enforcement is still in place.

You cannot purchase a hunting or fishing license, currently...but, the DNR can and will ticket you for fishing without a license.

To find an enemy of the citizens of the USA one only has to look at any government official.

But of course enforcement of the now unobtainable licenses is deemed critical.

I think Coors has been denied their due process.

It may be best to stay out of Minnesota for a while...

Interesting you should mention South Dakota. A former classmate of mine ran a small printing company in the Minneapolis area. He made the mistake of allowing the HR department to hire an otherwise talented graphic designer who couldn't decide whether he was a man or a woman.

The legislature passed a law that said you had to accomodate these freaks by letting them use any bathroom where they felt comfortable. Of course, the female employees did not feel comfortable by having this freak walk in on them.

After several vain attempts at trying to reach a solution such as having the freak knock before he entered (it refused), the guy figured out another way to solve the problem.

He moved the company to Sioux Falls.

Yeah, saw a story where even though all the state parks were closed, they were still paying the park staff to patrol the parks and fine anybody who was in the park illegally. If anybody needs any proof that this is about inconviencing as many people as possible to prove a point this is it, if the Governor is going to keep park staff on the payroll to issue tickets, he might as well keep the parks open.
