Dallas area salon owner Shelley Luther became famous by breaking Texas’s shelter order in late April.
Like many small business owners, she had to make ends meet and could not afford the luxury of a prolonged shutdown.
She would then receive a citation from the city of Dallas. Her case gained widespread coverage and she would later be invited to a rally protesting the closures.
At the rally, Luther expressed her desire to keep her business afloat and also wants the rest of the Texas economy to continue running. She said before the crowd, “We have a right to run a business and feed our children.”
Luther then took out her citation and ripped it up in front of the crowd, which drew massive cheers from the crowd.
“You’re our Rosa Parks,” a woman yelled from the crowd as Shelley Luther took the stage.

On May 5, 2020, Luther received a 7-day jail sentence and was fined $7,000. The salon owner refused to apologize to the judge for her decision to open the business.
Essentially, local busybodies want to castigate Shelley for the grievous crime of trying to sustain herself and family.
On the night of May 5,a GoFundMe page was set up to raise money for Shelley Luther and her business.
As of May 6, over $260,000 has been raised for Luther and her family.
The woman given a jail sentence for bravely refusing to close her small business has raised $80,000 from supporters.
I think governors are losing control of the narrative.

However, the government has been lackluster in its efforts to re-open the economy.
Governor Greg Abbott must take action, lest he wants people like Luther to continue to economically suffer.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
