Move over, governor

Governor Inslee, your COVID policies are killing our state. People have a right to make a living. We have COVID fatigue. If people are elderly, sick or afraid they can stay home, let the rest of us live our lives. People are losing their businesses, their jobs. Texas said no more lockdowns, North Dakota is doing OK. Masks do as much harm as good. The New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing no gain in virus management from lockdowns.

Governor get out of the way. You are the problem not the solution. By the way you and other government employees are still drawing paychecks. In solidarity with out-of-work citizens you should donate your pay.
