Kentucky, a conservative state with bluegrass music, rolling hills, and down to earth people. You would think they would be a defender of liberty and individual rights.
Well, we must think again. Because of the growth in liberals around their universities, Kentucky elected a progressive Governor, Andy Beshear’s(D). He has been very active in enforcing CV-19 directives and just won a decision at the Kentucky Supreme Court blocking lower court rulings that his measures were unconstitutional.
Kentucky Supreme Court halts efforts to block Gov. Andy Beshear’s COVID-19 orders
As here in California, most people I am hearing from are sick and tired of the draconian measures taken by the progressive governors and we are starting to see more kickback from some of them.

A Kentucky couple was placed under house arrest and forced to wear ankle monitors after refusing to sign a self-quarantine order after testing positive for coronavirus.
Elizabeth and Isaiah Linscott said authorities from the health department and sheriff’s office showed up at their Radcliff, Kentucky, home Thursday because she declined to sign the order.
The woman had voluntarily tested for COVID-19 before going to visit her parents out of state and found she was positive but without symptoms.
She was told to sign a self-quarantine order that restricted the family to their home unless she first contacted the Hardin County Health Department, WBTV reported.
Elizabeth said she declined to sign the order because it meant she would have to wait and contact officials before seeking urgent medical treatment if she became very sick with the virus.
Elizabeth recalled she had gotten herself tested for COVID-19 as a precaution before going to visit her parents and another family.
‘My grandparents wanted to see me, too,’ she said. ‘So just to make sure if they tested negative, that they would be OK, everything would be fine.’ The woman said that she was contacted by health officials after receiving a positive test result, which was when they asked her to sign the self-quarantine order.
Her failure to sign the ‘Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order,’ brought an unexpected visit from the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday. ‘I open up the door and there’s like eight different people,’ said her husband Isaiah, who was home when authorities showed up, reported WAVE3.
‘Five different cars and I’m like what the heck’s going on? This guy’s in a suit with a mask, it’s the health department guy and he has three different papers for us. For me, her and my daughter.’
The ankle bracelets they now wear will alert authorities if the couple gets more than 200 feet from their home. ‘We didn’t rob a store, we didn’t steal something, we didn’t hit and run, we didn’t do anything wrong.
If you don’t feel sick, I would recommend not getting tested. If you do, regardless of not having any symptoms, you will give the state the power to enforce a stay at home order on you. In addition, they will assign “Contact Tracers” who will damand contact information for anyone you came in contact with after testing positive.
Let’s pray this “pandemic” diminishes over the next few months, ending the “justification” to continue the shutdown.
