Dallas Salon Owner Shelley Luther goes to jail because she's "selfish, selfish, selfish"...

I nailed it in my last post.
"There you have it fellow travelers.  We're no longer just a deplorable, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, bitter clinging, red-neck pack of Nazi dirt people.  No, my precious pineapples, we're now hit with the ultimate of insults by the social justice warriors.  We don't care if we kill people."
Because we're selfish!
A judge told Shelley Luther, the salon owner who opened her business in defiance of the governor's orders, that she had the option to avoid jail time if she admitted to the government she was "wrong" and "selfish" for opening.

“I have much respect for this court and laws. I have never been in this position before and it’s not someplace that I want to be,” Luther responded. “But I have to disagree with you sir, when you say that I’m selfish because feeding my kids — is not selfish. I have hair stylists that are going hungry because they’d rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with you decision but I am not going to shut the salon.”
What is going on is not about public safety, but about fear, shaming, and control.  I don't know this young woman, nor do I know if her motives are pure.  I do know that she has taken a stand for freedom against tyranny. Good for her.

From All News Pipeline - do read the rest!
“Police state” does not mean totalitarian state. America is not a totalitarian state; we still have many freedoms. In a totalitarian state, this article could not be legally published, and if it were illegally published, I would be imprisoned and/or executed. 
But we are presently living with all four of the key hallmarks of a police state: 
No. 1: Draconian laws depriving citizens of elementary civil rights. The federal, state, county and city governments are now restricting almost every freedom except those of travel and speech. (ANP: And individual states are already attacking the 1st Amendment!)
No. 2: A mass media supportive of the state’s messaging and deprivation of rights. The New York Times, CNN and every other mainstream mass medium — except Fox News, The Wall Street Journal (editorial and opinion pages only) and talk radio — have served the cause of state control over individual Americans’ lives just as Pravda served the Soviet government. 
No. 3: Use of police. Police departments throughout America have agreed to enforce these laws and edicts with what can only be described as frightening alacrity. 
No. 4: Snitches. How do the police dispatchers learn of lawbreakers such as families playing softball in a public park, lone joggers without face masks, etc.? From their fellow citizens snitching on them.
