“I couldn’t feed my family, and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,”
Hairstylist Shelly Luther will be spending the next seven days behind bars thanks in part to Governor Gregg Abbotts Unconstitutional Stay-at-home orders. Now, the Governor, along with Attorney General, Ken Paxton, has called for Luther’s release.
Texas is touted as THE LONE STAR STATE. We’re loud and proud of where we come from. We’re known for our Liberties against Tyrants like Santa Ana. For some odd reason, we’ve forgotten who we indeed are. Then again, not many real Texans are left today. Many yuppies living in the Lone State State hail from Commiefornia, and New York City ( Say that in a Texan accent, It sounds better ), and have changed the culture of the inner-cities, and suburbia. It’s no wonder property taxes have skyrocketed in Austin.
Liberalism Is THE Cancer.
Luther was taken into custody immediately after the hearing and booked into the Dallas County jail just after 4:30 p.m.
Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after the county enacted its stay-at-home order. She reopened the salon April 24 despite that order and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the next day.

Luther’s attorney, Warren Norred, expressed disappointment in the judge’s ruling as well as the timing of the governor’s decision, saying Abbott could have acted sooner to allow salons to open. Norred also said he was frustrated at how some businesses were deemed essential while others were not.
Abbott “could’ve swept all this aside and said ‘Whatever your occupancy is of your facility, take it to 25%,’” Norred said Tuesday evening. ”That gets the churches. That gets the salons. That gets the grocery stores. It gets the restaurants. It gets everybody, and it would’ve done the job.”
During Tuesday’s hearing, Norred and Luther argued that the salon operated with safe protocols. The business normally has 19 stylists, but Luther testified that only a few had worked after she reopened. Each stylist wore a mask, she said.
Additionally, Luther said, she put hand-sanitizing stations in the salon and had customers wait outside until their stylist was ready. She kept the stations 6 feet apart, she said.
Kristen Monkhouse, an attorney for the city, said it didn’t matter how clean Luther kept the salon — she was in contempt of court the moment she opened the salon in defiance of the temporary restraining order.Dallas News
Do as I say, or go to jail. If that’s not Nazism, then I’m not sure what is. Scum, like Monkhouse, needs a reality check. Hairstylists, like Luther, have to have their jobs. Monkhouse is still drawing a paycheck. She feeds her family. She’s able to keep her lights on—shame on Monkhouse.
The country judge, in this case, Judge Eric Moye should step down from his position IMMEDIATE. He doesn’t understand the United States Constitution. Convicted Felons have been let out all over the country. Yet, we’re worried about a Salon Owner opening up her shop to feed her family and allow her employees to feed their families. This is outrageous and unAmerican. Definitely not Texan.
“Feeding my kids is not selfish,” she told Moyé. “If you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision, but I am not going to shut the salon.”
The county jail has had 248 inmates test positive for the coronavirus, according to statistics released Tuesday evening.
