One Small Step In Oklahoma, One Giant Leap For Common Sense

When Bill “Adolph” Joyce, mayor of Stillwater, OK, ordered his subjects to wear masks “while inside businesses,” whether as employees or customers, angry patrons forced him to recant:

“In the short time beginning on May 1, 2020, that face coverings have been required for entry into stores/restaurants, store employees have been threatened with physical violence and showered with verbal abuse,” [the] City Manager … said in a statement. “In addition, there has been one threat of violence using a firearm.”


Ahem: may I digress for a moment? Isn’t the mayor a “city manager”? What is the point of a second, non-essential bureaucrat also “managing” a city that doesn’t need either leeche? Especially with only 50,941 residents.

Back to Adolph:

“I hate that our businesses and their employees had to deal with abuse today, and I apologize for putting them in that position,” the mayor wrote.

You should, buddy. 

“I am not the kind of person who backs down from bullies, but I also will not send someone else to fight the battle for me,” he added in a second tweet.

Go ahead: try and save face. But we’re laughing too hard to hear you!

[The duplicative City Manager] said that many of the people who objected to wearing the masks have “the mistaken belief the requirement is unconstitutional.” 

Yo, Moron: someone’s mistaken, that’s for sure, but it ain’t them. Just ask Roland Walkenhorst, who alerted me to the shenanigans you and Adolph are pulling.
