Have you noticed the Politi-virus dictators are all of a sudden coming to realize lockdowns are bad? What could have changed? It was 10 months of insisting that everything stay shut down. We must kill the economy and drive the nation into recession in an election year?
Oh, what could have changed?
Joe Biden’s inauguration is January 20. That’s a weird coincidence, no?
What’s New York Governor Andrew COVID Cuomo doing these days? During his State of the State address Cuomo said that the state needs to reopen now before there’s nothing left to reopen. No, really? You mean after “300+ Days to Slow the Spread” isn’t working?
We stayed locked down… for the children. Right, Gov. “Grandma Killer.” If we prevented even one death… The hell you say! What we know is that New York’s ‘NEW NORMAL’ is that retail chains are abandoning Manhattan because it’s ‘unsustainable’.
And what’s going on in Chicago? There Mayor Lori Lightfoot has also expressed a sudden change of heart. The Mayor said on Thursday, Chicago restaurants and bars need to reopen “as quickly as possible.” Oh My God… how can that be? Did the virulence of the politi-virus just instantly dissipate? Have you noticed the Politi-virus dictators are all of a sudden coming to realize lockdowns are bad?
The mayor says it is time to reopen … not just to help those businesses survive, no. You see we also need to cut down on instances of private parties where people don’t take proper precautions against politi-virus. Interestingly she did not specify what proper precautions one should take against poiliti-virus.
Under the Illinois virus mitigation plan, Chicago’s restaurants and bars are under mandatory cessation of indoor service in late October. Gov. JB Pritzker has said some regions of the state can begin rolling back some politi-virus restrictions starting Friday. Of course they must meet certain virus thresholds. That is widely understood to mean business owners must pay appropriate tribute.
The governor says, reopening of indoor dining wouldn’t happen until… each region moves back at least three more phases. The expectation is those phases will refill the coffers of the political machine in Illinois. And notably, Chicago is not yet on track to begin easing restrictions. No green, no reopen guys. You know how this works.
Thursday, Lightfoot said she plans to have a conversation with Gov. JB Pritzker. You know to determine how to begin rolling back virus mitigation efforts ASAP. The restaurant industry has a high degree of regulation Mayor Lightfoot says . Everyone knows the higher the regulation you are the safer you are from politi-virus, right?
It is therefore completely logical… bars and restaurants would be “one of the safer places” for people. Damn, hold an election and the politi-virus just dries up and goes away… Who woulda thunk it possible just a few days ago? Must be that Democrat miracle… the vaccine. That must be it… halleluiah and praise be to Richard Daily.
Mayor Lightfoot says, “They’ve gone above and beyond to put in mitigation controls inside of the restaurants… I feel very strongly that we are very close to a point when we should be talking about opening up our bars and restaurants.” Have you noticed the Politi-virus dictators are all of a sudden coming to realize lockdowns are bad?
