NC Restaurant Assn — 65 Percent of NC Restaurants May Die From Lockdown

    Carolina Journal is reporting that the President of the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association, Lynn Minges, has estimated that 65% of North Carolina's 19,000 restaurants may not survive the coronavirus lockdown. This is about double an earlier estimate of one third of the state's restaurants being killed off by Roy Cooper's lockdown executive order.

    Cooper is flattening our small businesses, NOT "flattening the curve" of the virus, and restaurants are being particularly hard hit. Cooper's actions are all about politics, not about public health, and he has already accomplished a major political objective in his lockdown circus when he wrecked the Republican National Convention being in Charlotte.

    In a number of states, local governments are telling liberal governors to pound sand on their lockdowns and defying them. Beaufort County could have joined them except that Commissioners John Rebholz and Jerry Evans are sock puppets for Cooper, and in his hip pocket.
