I always love to see when people take what was a nonsense thing that came to be accepted and use it when the side that was originally doing it starts to complain.
For what seemed like forever, you had liberals that were taking advantage of rules that allowed them to pretty much do whatever the heck they wanted and now it is time to turn the tables.
There are honest, hardworking people that are getting a bad break because of some of the more ignorant Covid restrictions and it is pretty much time for them to get back at people.
Two New York City businessmen have taken a page from the leftist playbook for defying government, and have declared their pub an “autonomous zone” in order to keep its doors open.
The New York Post reported Staten Island’s Mac’s Public House is open, which is in defiance of public health orders to partially close down amid a resurgence of reported infections amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Mac’s Public House is located in New York’s South Shore area, which was deemed an orange zone by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo, a recent Emmy Award recipient for his “leadership” during the pandemic, declared the area to be zoned orange this past week.
According to New York City’s website, orange is bad — meaning “restaurants, bars, cafes and other food service establishments can provide outdoor dining and takeout and delivery service only.”
Orange also means a “four-person maximum per table,” while “No indoor dining is allowed.”
But Mac’s Public House co-owners Danny Presti and Keith McAlarney told the Post they won’t be closing the doors to their business.
Taking a cue from Seattle’s leftist Capital Hill neighborhood occupiers from this past summer, the two men declared the establishment an “autonomous zone.”
That seemed to work out for Seattle’s CHAZ/CHOP anarchists and other leftists, as they were allowed by Seattle Democrats to operate under their own rules for roughly a month.
