This should be common sense.
NFL legend and Rep.-Elect Burgess Owens (R-UT) blasted Democrats over the massive amount of small businesses which are shutdown across the country while big businesses such as Amazon, the NFL and NBA are still open.
According to Breitbart, Owens stated, “Well, keep in mind, they’re not shutting down the big businesses. They’re shutting down those that really do need this opportunity to come out. And again, I can’t emphasize enough, this is our time to really have this conversation, should we be fighting for the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? And happiness was talked about as being property, to own property, to have a legacy. And we have these Democratic states, these Democratic mayors, that are finding this new power and are just going crazy with it. So, we’re going to have to have a conversation of what does it mean for us to fight for our culture, and our culture is life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, to have a business, and that someone cannot dictate that we are non-essential. If the NFL, the NBA, if Amazon can be essential, so can the small mom-and-pop businesses that wake up every single day and figure out how to keep their customers safe.”
